shopping sucks when you are poor

As many of my fellow students/recent grads could probably tell you; shopping sucks when you are poor. Or maybe, more accurately, loving to shop really sucks when you are poor. Take this weekend for example; having suppressed the need to shop for so long, I exploded into a frenzy when we visited Target this weekend. Even though I knew we couldn't actually make purchases I found a little relief in piling things into the cart or walking around with them for awhile. It was sad. And to make matters worse all the back to school stuff was out and I was finding fistfuls of things I liked. Mind you I'm picky so finding stuff I like well enough to buy doesn't happen every time. Alas in the end I was responsible and got two work appropriate things. What I really wanted was these leggings though.



YES they are faux leather AND spandex AT THE SAME TIME. If I were a superhero, these are exactly what I would wear. And I would look fabulous. It took all of my self control to not buy them so I could look superhero-fabulous every day. And I almost regret it still. I'm writing this eulogy for them as therapy. Maybe I should start a fabulous leggings fund. Any contributors?

My superhero look would center around some ghetto fabulous jean leggings with the buttons at the bottom. I feel your pain.

Jessi. Those will go out of style do fast, you won't even know they were in style... Except that they seem necessary in the dress-up section of the closet that You Becca Juli and I still have, I'm sure. =))

I would love to contribute to your leggings fund. Jess, only you could actually wear these and get away with it(in style or not, Esther). I mean that in the most complimentary of ways.

Regardless of my pulling off ability, (thanks for the vote of confidence mom!) think of the ninja costume potential these have! Everyone should have a pair for that reason alone!
