Truth be told I don’t do much shopping these days. Number one, there ain’t no money or job (but we are looking!) and two, well that’s pretty much it. I have the time, but no cashola. Anyway, on those rare occasions when I can shop, I have to take my little man with me. And that folks, makes it a whole another experience.
This week we were at our local shopping centre where I took Little M to run around in their play area. It was cold out and he needed to release some energy. So there I was, having my coffee and watching him jump, roll, climb and run with other kids.
After two hours (yes, TWO hours) it was time to call it quits. We rounded the corner and there in front of me was a massive SALE sign at H&M. Oooooh! It was calling and I answered.
We walked in and Little M immediately said “no store mami”. I did my usual skim around the shop and stopped at the faux fur vest/gilet on the mannequin.
I’ve never been one for furs, but ever since I saw my cousin’s black DKNY one I’ve had my mind on one. I went over, tried it on and ahhhhh it was gorgeous. I then looked at the price and ahhhhh, it was $20! Done. It was mine.
Then my son yelled out “mira mami, DEER!” And sure enough there was a shirt with deer on it. “Put it on” he insisted but I passed on that one.
Little M was sitting unusually quiet in his buggy and then he looked up and said “put on doggie mami”. I looked over at him and saw he was pointing to the fur. I just burst out laughing and he said “mami, I want to pet doggie, put on”.
There we were both giggling and “petting” the vest/gilet. So you see I had to buy it, how could I disappoint the little guy?! Good thing it was on sale, both items came to $32.
So there you have it, my faux fur experience. Don’t be afraid to try a new look, but best to *try* from the sale rack. Had it been full price, I would have had to say bye bye to the doggie…I mean vest/gilet.
P.S. Can you tell I’m tired?
