And then I came to and I was like SON OF A NUTCRACKER this is a lot of clothing. There were racks and racks (and racks) of clothes, everywhere I looked with the clothes. I just kind of wandered around the store, ocassionally picking up something and swooning (This shirt is only $5?? WHAT?), and then I would keep walking and walking, trying to figure out where to even begin to find anything. I think I walked for about 10 miles and then I suddenly realized.
There's a second floor.
(We won't talk about how there were all these girls half my age that were confidently strolling around the store with purpose. They didn't seem to be the least bit daunted.)
BUT all these fabulous bloggy ladies kept talking about F21 and how you can find such awesome things for amazing prices and I was like but HOW because I tried and I couldn't find anything in that place! The more posts I saw with all of these amazing finds the more determined I became. I would conquer this beast (ever so slightly melodramatic maybe).
So like any halfway tech savvy person I took to the internet. I wanted a new dress for a party I was attending and didn't want to spend more than $20 TOPS (Yes, I am cheap). So I went on the website and searched through the dresses and sandals and such, and actually wrote down the names and prices of the ones I liked on actual paper with actual pen (old skool).
After work I went straight to the mall (because that's what you do when your husband is out of town) and this time, I had a PLAN. Just stick to the plan and you'll be fine, I told myself.
And it totally worked. I walked out of there with the cutest dress and sandals you ever did see, all for less than $20. Boom.
And that is the unecessarily long and dramatic story of how I found my new favorite store (after Target of course. Target trumps all).
So if anyone wants to buy me any of the above for my birthday I would not be mad about it. The end.
