A disappointing start to the day. I was so excited to go for a run, especially given I will be imbibing all weekend, then as I was brushing my teeth I remembered I have to take my son to the dentist this morning. An awful process – I leave with my ears ringing every time for he does NOT like the dentist. I was also looking back on yesterday and the disappointing visit to AllSaints in Bloomingdale’s. Disappointing as I left with just one item.
I had gone into the store to try the Petrel Brodies – a good job I did. The lovely Charlie was as ever incredibly helpful and showed me his splendid new sleeve tattoo – if I was 20 years younger would I do it? I don’t have any tattoos but Charlie’s looks hot – I’d be tempted. Anyway the pants were SO skinny. Now I don’t think I have particularly big legs but I needed a shoe horn to get in and out of a 30 inch and I normally wear a 27 in Gap and Hudson! No vanity sizing here! I was sweating in the fitting room – I guess it was a good workout in lieu of the run today! So no Petrel Brodies but I did leave with the gorgeous faded ebony Pipali tank (I’ve ordered the chalk online)…
I tried a couple of other pairs of jeans on but they wear either too skinny in the leg or too big on the waist…or I’m just an odd shape? I’ll have to keep searching but I’m tempted to try some cropped jeans from either J.Crew or Express, depending if I think the extra $40 is worth it – probably not for a very seasonal item.
Today I am wearing my AllSaints Tilly tee from last summer, Gap camo print legging jeans from last year, Nine West shoe boots that I haven’t worn FOREVER and found lurking in a box at the bottom of the closet – it was like opening a new pair – I was so happy to see them!
