First of all, thanks for all the "constructive" comments on yesterday's post. While I can understand how I seem ungrateful and like a picky brat... that cupcake carrier is so big you have to remove a shelf to fit it in my fridge. My very large, suburban fridge. Which I anticipate being larger than Mr. RH and I's first fridge once we move in together.
I think Betsy had the most constructive comment of the day and I liked it. That being said, the carrier has to go. It's caused too much drama in my head.
While I understand that Mr. RH's feelings could be hurt.... would he really want me to keep something that I knew I didn't want? Am I in a relationship where I can't say if I'm unhappy with something, even if it is a gift?
Just sayin.... if you're looking for a Stepford Wife, I'm not her.
A week or two ago, Express sent out an email at 7pm or so announcing that they were having a crazy overnight sale.
Despite my ho-hum disinterest in Express, part of me was intrigued. They have some amazing basics and staple pieces.
So I forgot about it before bed, but when I woke up at 6 am... Express was on my mind.
And, BAM right there it was, staple trench coat for 50% off. This on the tails of someone complimenting my (7 year old) black Old Navy trench on its cool "moss" color. Not cool.
And then... a hot ass jacket. Just because it was also 50% off.
Enter... hot ass jacket. I put it on and immediately know that there was a Big Wrong. Noooooo. The sleeves are so unbearably tight I could barely take this photo. Fortunately, I'm going to be in the neighborhood of several Express stores soon so I'm hoping I can size up.
Oh, what's that? My face in an "outfit" picture? Why yes it is. Weird as hell.
Ok, now the tale of two jackets. First, I present the red. Hot red trench... unfortunately, it's a bit brighter than I would prefer. I am more of a crimson-red girl, not that I look good in crimson red.
Yes, I am aware that my roots are showing and no, I'm not casper but he is a dear friend of mine. BOO!
Next up.... "Sarah-blue". Cobalt is my color. Or at least I always assume it is, since most of my college friends refer to this color as "Sarah-blue."
No seriously, what is wrong with me?
The jackets have a bit more sheen to them than I would love, but they're not exactly shiny. They definitely repel water, which is good. My last one was very cotton and not very dry. Genius!
To recap: Blue vs. Red.
May the force be with you.
