Monday Mystery - An Impulse Purchase

Last week, I ordered a dress from Modcloth. I often look at the site and put things in my shopping cart, but I've never actually completed my purchase. This time, I did. I just handed over my money like a person with no bills to pay.

I blame the vodka cranberry.

But, perhaps, I should blame my desperate desire for something to happen for which I might be motivated to get dressed up and wear high heels and celebrate.

In the same vein, the other day I created a folder full of gifs of people expressing excitement. Typically, when I come across gifs I like I save them because I know I'll find a way to use them on the blog somehow. Almost every time, I end up using the gif within the next day or two.

I'm not so sure about the "excited" gifs.

Excitement is in short supply up in here. This girl is still waiting for something to happen.

But, for now, I have this dress. I have fewer than 30 days to decide if I'm going to keep it and believe in the idea that I'll have some place to wear it.

But maybe I will return this dress and use the refund to order myself elastic-waist pajamas pants and fuzzy socks.

Stay tuned.


  1. I have a couple of "occasion dresses" for which the occasion has not yet come and may never happen. I don't care - they're faaaaabulous.

    I just found you via Wide Lawns - Love your blog! (I know that sounds kind of lame - I couldn't think of how else to put it.)

    1. Thank you!

      I think I'm going to keep the dress. Like you said, I don't care - it's fabulous. I can find some place to wear it!
