– And blah (No one lie, this is exactly how we ALL read it.)
So Julie and me being. . . Julie and me. It would’ve been unnatural for us not to go to a thrift store. .
Luckily, our trained eyes had already spotted a few on the way to the church.
I was pretty excited when I saw a sign, “blue tags 25c”. I thought, yes I’m getting a souvenir to remember the trip!
. . And then I started to look around.
Julie, on the other hand, went diving into the dresses and skirts.
|Standing behind it. Practically the same as trying it on.|
|Kinda like this one. .|
Honestly, I was just trying to find a blue tag. I feel like they don’t exist. I never saw one.
While Julie was in dress heaven for a little bit, I found this. . .
And was suddenly inspired. I mean, this sweater is boringly horrific. And that’s saying something, coming from me. I was telling Julie the problem I sometimes have when shopping is that I can take something that I may not even like at first, see the potential, and make the best of it. When really, if I’m paying for it, I should like it at least a little.
Anyway, my purpose blossomed.
Oh I take it back! It all started with this “skirt”.
I thought, oh that’s cute. Then. .
Four words: I. Just. Don’t. Understand.
It was in the skirt section. It looked like a skirt. . .with sleeves?
We finally concluded that it must be some off-the-shoulder shirt. . . Or a. . I don’t even know. Haha, to this day I’m pretty stumped. Maybe an XXXL?
I find it unfortunate that some of the ugliest articles of clothing are sweaters. Why is this? Is it a 90’s thing? Did someone just decide one day “hey everyone, let’s treat a sweater like a pizza and put everything on it!” and the crowd bowed down to the genius of it all.
I’ll let your eyes rest with this one.
Oh Lord Jesus please be with the tortured soul who had to wear this. . This is criminal. This is like putting a male dog in a fuzzy pink sweater. . I just hope that the person who wore this was a proud and sweet little old lady.
The next few articles almost look normal after those monstrosities.
This reminds me of a cartoon or comic strip. Very The Mask.
Get your tribal on. *smacks mouth, making Indian noises* Wooh-wooh-wooh.
FINALLY, I found something I liked!!
Group “aww” on three. One, two, three. Awwwwww.
This, I’m not gonna lie, I stared at a while. It is pretty cool. I guess SOME sweaters don’t look like someone threw up sequins and embroidery on them.
|Had to model the orange blazer|
|I almost considered this. I like orange, if you didn’t know.|
As we were wrapping up our time at the thrift store, Julie found this sweater.
I thought she was joking, but she just got a job back at PetSmart and thought this would be perfect. Out of all the dress browsing, this is what she got, which I found funny for some reason.
So we left the Thrift Store, heads held high. Cat-dog sweater in Julie’s hand. And a new appreciation for the word “ugly”.
And I don’t mean that in a depreciating way. It’s almost impressive.
