Welcome to the wonderful world of things fashionable *smiles*
The walk to Cullens seemed to pass by so easily, as the gravel crunched beneath my feet. Off in the distance I heard the distinct purr of a roaring engine, that I knew could only belong to one car ... one person.
I smiled as I hopped onto the front porch - awaiting my accompliss - and waved hello to all in the room. Before I could even take another step, she was beside me, grinning wide. I was in Charlotte's car within seconds - racing off in the Lotus towards Seattle.
I had no idea what we were searching for, only that the prom was first in my mind. For how can one go to prom without the perfect shoes, and accsessories? Not that it really mattered as soon as we stepped into the store. I was overcome with too many shiny objects to keep my focus.
I made a bee line for the shoes, picking through the stacks of boots; Charlotte already well at home in the glorious corner of footwear. It didn't take long for me to find the perfect boots for the occasion. It occured to me - as I twirled the knee high boots in my hands - that perhaps I should go with my instincts. After all, I am
a fashion rebel. And it is
an 80's prom - even though I wasn't sure exactly that this style would flow well with that theme (but I still like it).
As I watched Charlotte smiling over her new found shoe discovery, I darted into the racks of jackets. At first, I wasn't entirely sure what would compliment the new boots, but I knew that it had to be something I would have worn when I was younger.
Something black. Something leather. And Charlotte found it.
It was perfect; fitting snugly against my sides. I was instantly in love with it, and had
to have it. Next it was time for Charlotte to succomb to the need for a new jacket, and she really found the perfect one. A nice, black blazer that really made her eyes shine.
Of course, no shopping trip is complete without jewlery.
My will crumbled into dust, as we set our eyes on all the sparkly objects before us. I came away with a silver necklace, matching bracelet, and a new ring. Charlotte picked out the most beautiful necklace as well.
At the end of the morning - as we paid for our items - I realized that I might just have a little addiction to shopping. More so, when I threw the reciept into the trash - not even glancing down at the total - and hoisting the heavy purchases into the Lotus. My overwhelming compulsion had nailed me to the wall again.
I could still hear Charlotte chuckling as she drove away from my house.
I had an absolutley fantastic time in Seattle today with Charlotte. She loves shopping just as much as I do, and I can't wait to go again. Thanks Char! You're the best!
Here's a look at my prom outfit - sans jewlery. I haven't decided on that yet.
Jessica helped me pick out the dress ... thanks Jess!
Charlotte helped me pick out the shoes, and jacket .. Thanks Char!
I have this pair of boots, and another one that I deciding on. Perhaps these, perhaps something a bit more pointy. What do you think?
