It was pretty successful. Then I lounged around a bit at her house and chatted with my Filipino grandparents, played with Max (who is a bichon frise), and ate some yummy sabayo and rice.
I would post pictures, but I'm lazy.
Anyways, as I was shopping I started thinking about the future (which currently makes me want to vomit) and how I ought to be buying things like "staple items" instead of fad items. Timeless, useful things--- like a black Chanel dress. But obviously not a Chanel because I don't have a money tree in my yard.
But, you know, things I can use throughout the rest of high school and college when I have presentations, interviews, and meetings (vomit, vomit, and vomit). Luckily my mom has also been thinking about that and gave me this:
This Calvin Klein dress has become the first of hopefully a hand full of "staple items" that I'm sure I'll need somewhere down the road. The next thing on my list is a standard black dress.
I just don't want to be that person who has to scramble around at the last minute to buy/borrow something nice the night before a big event. I'd also like to avoid being "sweat pants and a t-shirt" girl in the foreseeable future.
The future freaks me out.
