Saturday we made the 30 minute drive to Orland Park Mall. My Iphone needed a new camera lens and I kept getting a mysterious pop up. Come to find out one little tiny bit of moisture got in the charging port which qualified me for a new phone.......So they wanted me to back up my information before switching phones and that meant another trip to the mall today.
So after two 30 minute trips and 4 hours at the Apple store I have a new phone but it's not activated. Thanks Verizon!!!!!!!!
While waiting for my appointment at the Apple store (two times) I spent way to much time at the mall.
As many of you know I am not much of a retail shopper. Actually I hate retail shopping. I have one local store I go to that has great clearance prices. The name of it is Carson's, it's owned by Bon Ton, you probably have one in your area. Check it out!
But, put me in a mall and I'm in total panic mode. I don't know if it's all of the people, to many choices or in a wacky way lack of control. I just don't enjoy it.
I did make my first trip to Forever 21 and H & M. Neither store impressed me. But I'm not anywhere close to 21 so what do I care.
Today I am linking up to Patti @ Not dead yet style for visible Monday and Two Birds Inspiration Monday I will show two outfits. I don't think I've ever done that before. I really hated the inspiration outfit pics I took. I just wasn't happy with any part of the result.
So then I put on my real outfit to go to the mall and lunch with the Man. I was much happier with those results. So once again trial and error inspiration and visible effects.
Taking your own pictures is to say the least awkward. It is a helpful tool. One look at my first outfit sent me running right back to my friend the closet!
Just found a fun link up so head on over and check out In Honor of Design
Here is the Two Birds inspiration.
And yes, I actually own two vintage tuxedo jackets.
This is what I actually wore.
