Since I mainly live in Toronto my family out in the boonies will ask me to help them with
presents. After just spending two months living in the country I was reminded as to how
was to get anything. The closest big grocery store is 25 minutes away and my beloved
is 45 minutes. I am really spoiled living in the big city having the convenience of 24 grocery
and malls 5 minutes from my condo.
As I was touring around one of my favourite outlet malls looking for gifts I ventured into
Hilfiger. I am not a huge fan of his stuff but at this particular outlet store I have great luck.
time I was not shopping for myself though I was looking for gifts. Before when I was single I
buy a gift for my brother and then buy a gift for me … buy a gift for my mom and buy
for me. Of course this is when you find the best deals when you are shopping for someone
And it didn’t matter I had just my family and myself to buy for.
But now after being in a relationship for the past year it takes Christmas to a whole new level
only do I have another family to share the holidays with but I also have to buy more gifts
for my beau. Last year I got away with one gift for him but not this year now it’s about
pile of gifts under the tree, waking up on Christmas morning together with over-flowing
stockings. My budget did not allow for the “buy one buy one for yourself deal”.
Of course I see the perfect casual dark teal satin-ish dress for me. Perfect to pair with tights
knee high boots and my nice wide black leather belt I bought there last summer. I did not
gift I was looking for but I did see some for me. I carried the dress around on my arm while I
checked out the rest of the store. Keep in mind this dress was only $20 bucks super cheap
again it was not in my budget. I had another Christmas dinner to think about which equals
booze more food more desserts and more booze.
With a major fight with my inner self and onlookers thinking I was crazy as I put the dress
and picked it up again. I finally put the dress down and quickly left the store. I thought hey
ill get some money from Santa and ill pick it up after the Holidays? Of course at that price it
might be gone.
I may not have a nice shiny new dress to wear to Christmas but I do have a nice shiny new
extended family to share the Holidays with. I would trade all the clothes in the world for
PS. Santa here’s a link to the dress size medium and it’s cheaper at the outlet store (and is
more teal in person) …
