This is why I can’t have nice things

September 26, 2007

So frequently I’m advised to buy high-quality classic clothing because “it’s an investment, and you’ll be able to wear it for years.” Well sure, if you’re not ME.

It’s 12:30 and already I’ve gotten egg gook on my shirt, dirty from moving boxes, and two minutes ago, I suffered a tomato catastrophe. While trying to fork a cherry tomato, it exploded from its back end and spattered me from arm to midsection with gooey tomato guts.

Now you can just imagine how horrified anyone should be to sell me anything nice, much less how eager I’m not to spend real money on clothes that I’m going to wear. *shaking head* Honestly.

  1. Oh.. honey *giggling*.. 🙂

    Only you.

    But you know, thrift stores have some pretty awesome brand names sometimes – no one can really tell when I wear thrift clothing…!! It’s all about going there and really scouring the racks.

    Maybe invest in a really high-quality (and machine washable) bib??

  3. ~Fab~ I have GOT to find some good thrift stores out here. The only ones for miles around are hardly ever open.

    ~Ms. M&P~ Ms. Clever! 🙂 I should, I really should. Because I AM the one foolish enough to wear a white fuzzy sweater and have Texas BBQ for lunch. It’s time to buy stock in Tide, and load up on Tide pens!!

  4. I try to wear dark colored clothes to prevent major stain issues. 🙂

  5. ~CalGirl~ And I bet that resolves a lot of matching issues too!
