the skirt, revisited

well, my moral dilemma resolved itself in the blink of an eye.

after work on saturday, i went back to delirium to try on my skirt.

let’s start with the good news:

the skirt is priced at $54.99 which i thought was really not bad. i found out that the skirt comes from a mother-and-daughter-design/production team out in california:

the skirt's hangtag

most likely, you cannot read the print in the photo. the skirt label is “heartbreakers,” and the motto across the top states: “made with love and no regrets.” isn’t that awesome philosophy!

unfortunately (fortunately?), as soon as i put the skirt on, i knew it was not for me:

as seen on me, not the mannequin in the window!

it’s too long. the word that immediately came to mind: dowdy. to suit me and my style, the skirt would need to be one virgin mary long, not two.

too bad, so sad. or not. at least i no longer have an internal moral debate to resolve.

except.

i found a tshirt i covet and adore!!!!

IS THIS NOT FANTASTIC AND FUNNY?!!!

NOW I WANT THIS TSHIRT!!! [yes i am screaming, i am excited]. I LOVE THE CARTOON KITTIES – LOOK AT THOSE BOWS!!! – IT’S A HOOT BECAUSE I DISLIKE CATS INTENSELY (sorry, zo!) AND I LOVE THE “SEE NO EVIL…” ETC CAPTION. AND IT’S ON SALE FOR $25!

[and i have approx the same amount of tshirts as the number of goals wayne gretzky scored in his career].

once again: it’s decision time…

a very cute play on words! saying more with less – always impressive, in my book (er, magazine?)!

i’ve really been enjoying the yoga classes at fearless heart yoga. i’ve attended sessions led by instructors lindsay, suzie and lauren. each of these yoginis has her own distinct style, yet each one is awesome. i was getting sad because my two week trial pass was nearing its end – in fact, it runs out today.

but then, the yoga gods buddhas intervened!

late last week, i made good on this groupon offer!

this makes THREE groupon purchases, now!

yippee! i will activate my one month pass this week. any time can be yoga time! how’s that for divine karmic intervention!

31 FLAVOURS OF AUGUST

15/31

treat: kind bar from eating well organically

price: $2.59 – > plus hst, don’t forget!

rating: ** 1/2

tasting notes: i wanted a pre-yoga healthy-yet-sweet snack bar. these kind bars, i like. larabars i intensely dislike – i don’t get the hype (sorry, fans). the kind bars are wheat free, gluten free, dairy free (very good assets before downward dogg-ing) but, mainly, i just like the taste. this flavour combo was chewy and sweet and hit the spot. a little expensive to be taken daily.

    Sorry the skirt didn’t work out.

    I’ll never give my Larabars – never, never, never. Kind bars are good, too, but they’re a lot more expensive.

      oh, i fully realize i’m in the minority with larabars…glad you enjoy them! i think you have more and better flavours available in the states!

    One ” virgin Mary long” cracked me up! As is, I agree the length is hard to pull off. The shirt is really cute (even though people might mistake you for a cat lover if you wear it!).

      that is not the last you have seen of the cats…stay tuned! from the mannequin in the window, i thought it was more a knee-length skirt. i just can’t do the longer style!
