So for me, one of the best parts of my week is waiting for the order to arrive that I ‘accidentally’ placed at some point during the week. I have a little bit of an obsession with shopping if you see some of my other posts or know me personally.
‘Oh, Joel I didn’t mean to add my entire wish list to my basket. Oh well… may as well wait until it arrives.’
There is something borderline orgasmic about opening a package from somewhere like Missguided or ASOS and bursting through that cellophane to feel the fabric lying within. Feeling it to see if it’s how I imagined it would be when I fell in love with it through my phone screen.
The sad part is that more often that not – the items are disgusting. Like actually U.G.L.Y. It’s a different kind of stress when you don’t need the clothing or are just buying things willy nilly but, I have a rugby dinner ball to go to this Saturday and I have actually nothing to wear. I know in my last post I talked about going shopping in charity shops and not wasting money on things I don’t need but – EXCUSE ME I NEED A DRESS. I ordered what looked like a beautiful mint green dress from ASOS and I was so confident about it. When it arrived and I ripped apart that cellophane, my soul fell through the floor. Never in my 26 years of life have I never had a more horrendous item of clothing come across my door. Even those God awful satin pink trousers my mother used to force me to wear were better. Ugh. I wonder if I could fit into them…
So I’m in dire straights, I have no idea what I am looking for and at this point I will wear ANYTHING. I have no time off before the ball so I am relying on shopping online. I am currently browsing websites looking for something fabulous to pop out – like, what is it that’s so hard about online shopping when you need something and so easy when you don’t?
It’s not like I am refusing to wear dresses that I already have it’s just that I have found that I really like eating, anyone else this way? I can’t fit into the dresses I have as I’m a little rounder than I was when I got the others. I broke my ankle a year ago and i’ve gotten so lazy from that having to sit down all the time.
I know, I know… First world problems. Anyway, if any of you see a dress send me it ok thanks.
