This funny cartoon went around work the other day, and I thought it would be a perfect addition to my blog. (If you're having trouble viewing the icons, you can click the image to see it larger). A lot of people (boys) are wondering why not shopping would be so hard? Well, the above diagram showcases it perfectly. Say a guy asked me out for drinks...or the girls wanted to go catch Happy Hour. I would first evaluate whether or not I'd want to. Then, of course, I'd have to pick out an outfit. What I love about this diagram is it shows "bottoms" first. I ALWAYS do that! I mean, OK... am I going to wear a dress or pants? Do I want to wear tights? Do I want to be casual or cute? Are skinny jeans weird? Do I have shoes to go with boot cut jeans? Seriously, its a huge dilemma. If I was a boy, I'd have the luxury of wearing whatever I wanted... and I'd look the same. Boys suck. Really, not fair. Seriously they're all stupid and like "oh hey, let me just wear WHATEVER because I look hot anyways." And they do, they look hot. No matter what they're wearing. Well that is not completely true, my girlfriends know how I feel about boy style. That is a whole different issue. But seriously, if they just throw on clothes that fit, they look super cute and precious and to be honest that is RUDE.. Anyways, then I move to the problem of what to wear on top. This always is dependant on if you're going out with the girls or with a guy- there is girl cute, and guy cute. Way different. Guys don't really understand or appreciate things like sleeves or sequins, and girls don't really care how low cut your shirt is. Then shoes. Is it snowy? Is it hot? Did you paint your toenails? How tall are the people you're with? Do you want to feel taller or shorter? Will you be walking a lot? I'm not kidding. It is seriously a miracle I even get out of bed some days.
So, after I've been through this exhausting flow chart and finally am clothed, I realize my hair is a rats nest and by that time it is too late to do anything about it, and I think crap! What a waste of a good outfit... I still look like crap.
AND THEN, if I even make it out the door to the bar (don't worry, I rarely don't make it to bars)... it is time to decide what to drink. If you're like me, you may drink just about anything. But if you're on a diet, or you have to work early, or you don't want beer bloat... holy mac you might as well tell the waitress to come back in 30 minutes or so. Seriously, what a disaster.
To be honest, I'm EXHAUSTED just having typed this. Luckily, my social life is PITIFUL right now. Oh wait what did I just say? I meant to say that I am like... really popular. But I am just choosing to sit at home in sweats gazing at my Christmas tree. ;-) However, I did join a gym again... more to come on that later... so tonight I don't have to worry about Happy Hour outfits, or what to order... I just have to find some gym shorts and get on the treadmill (yuck). If anyone happens to be going out tonight, feel free to use the chart and go to town. I bet you'll look awesome! And boys: (do boys even read this??) Please, just once, be grateful for the fact that you get to wear whatever the heck you want, and you'll still look perfect. Rude.
