Went to the mall yesterda for my family's gifts, and I ended up spending way more money than I intended, mostly on myself. I got 4 pairs of pants, a skirt, 2 camisoles, a sweater, 2 every day bras, 1 sports bra, and a Camelbak water bottle. All for myself. At least everything was on sale except the sports bra and water bottle, both of which I definitely needed. And I got to the mall early and got out by noon, so it wasn't nearly as crowded as it could have been. Now for the strange parts.

Story the first: The 4 pairs of pants came from New York & Co, all on sale, and each a different size. Now, 1 pair was a pair of athletic pants so it was the small/medium/large sizing, not regular sizing. But the other 3? One pair was 8 regular, one pair was 10 regular, and 1 pair was 12 petite. All 3 pairs fit perfectly. So bizarre. My mom brought up the fact that they're 3 different styles, but they're still all from the same store. I go into Express, Banana Republic, or J Crew, and I know that I need 10 petite. Doesn't matter what style the pants are, I'm going to be wearing 10 petite. Needing that many different sizes is just frustrating. Bright side, I'm thrilled that I get to say I fit into a size 8. :D

Related to that story, my apologies to the fitting room attendant that I sent all over the store to get multiple sizes in multiple pairs of pants. Totally didn't mean to have you running around like crazy. Blame your quality control people.

Story the second: I was in Limited, and everything in the store was 40% off, but I had to double-check that it included the sale merchandise. Now, I was wearing my glasses instead of my contacts, but other than that I was just in jeans and a t-shirt. The sales girl asked if I was a student or a teacher, and I said no. She paused and went, "Oh. Really?" She sounded so shocked that I said no. Apparently my glasses make me look really studious? Usually I have to at least be wearing a Purdue shirt to get a student comment. Or that one time last year where I was wearing a shirt from my high school and apparently got mistaken for a high school student, but that's a different story.
