The nice thing about not having any extra money to spend is that I can try on whatever clothes I want without having to worry about the cost. Everything is outside of my budget so why not try everything on? I had an hour to kill before the movie last night so I headed over to Macy's to play dress up and while perusing the selection came across this little number:
You guys! It's an orange and cream zebra print halftan!!* Because of the spending moratorium the only price that would have worked for me was free but oh how I laughed myself silly in the dressing room. It is so Golden Girls! Doesn't it just make your day?! And don't you wish it came with a turban, a pair of silk pants, and a stack of personalized stationary? If it did I could go as a legitimate Woman of Elegant Leisure for Halloween.
I'm not sad about leaving it in the store because twice before I have found pieces that I loved during a spending moratorium and have gone back months later once I could spend again and have found them significantly reduced and in my size. If it's meant to be, it's meant to be. And then I can get down to some serious lounging. A turban should be easy to make, right?
*A caftan that only goes to the hips. Rotating the picture cut off the bottom.
