A couple of days ago, a friend who couldn't make it herself sent me her VIP-coupon for a sale today at KappAhl. 30% off sounded great as I'm in desperate need of both jeans and other trousers for spring. So this morning I got up early and set out to do some serious shopping.
I didn't like any of the jeans they had in the store. I think I tried about 7 different pairs, and they were all just meh.....Intent on not leaving totally empty handed, my misson was changed to finding spring trousers instead. Eventually I found pair which on the hanger seemed to be just what I wanted. These ones, but in dark khaki:

Notice the pleats on the pockets? When you've got hips, that kind of design only serves to make them seem HUGE! Thanks, but no thanks, my hips are more than wide enough as it is. Why oh why do they have to ruin an otherwise great pair of trousers by adding details that make you seem to be carrying around a whole lot of extra bulk? Disappointed, I put them back and gave up the hunt. I guess I was just fed up running in and out of the fitting room. Instead I found some other small stuff which I needed. Upon paying, I was given a surprise goodie bag. How nice is that! Inside there were three things:
A bunch of hairbands in pretty spring colors, a clothes brush and a headband. When I went bald I gave away all my hair things to a friend with long hair, and I've only just begun to rebuild a collection of new ones. So these sure come in handy. The clothes brush, too. But the headband with the cute little bow? Hm...
Mutton dressed as lamb?
I know these are very trendy at the moment, but I really don't think this look is quite my style. Had a fun time in front of the mirror though, trying it out with different facial expressions...if I had been Carrie Bradshaw with a tutu to go, then maybe...
But I did get one thing on sale at 30% off (albeit in another store). The other day I saw a picture of Caroline at Caroline's mode and loved the casual look of a grey hoodie inside a leather jacket. So while having a quick look around the other stores, I made sure to jump on the offer when I found a similar hoodie.
Neither too big or too bulky. Perfect inside my fave leather jacket! Guess it's safe to say I won't be wearing a headband with that. :)
