Grocery shopping always makes me feel better. I know... strange, but I contribute this to being "deprived" for so many years while living overseas. So... it was off to the Super Target for some retail therapy yesterday.
As I walked down the bread isle, and then through the fresh produce section I started feeling a bit better. By the time I reached isle number 7 and the overflowing shelves of breakfast cereal, I was in fact a bit cheery!
As my dad says, life is never so bad that it can't be worse....
As I pushed my bright red cart with a bad front wheel toward the checkout, something in the ladies' department caught my eye. A trenchcoat! Ever since Tim Gunn's Guide to Style made its debut in Australia, I have had this sinking feeling that my wardrobe was not complete as I did not own the perfect trenchcoat. Definitely an essential says Tim Gunn and his former super model sidekick.
So... for 39$ I decided to go for it... and go for it big! I bought the BRIGHT PINK trench coat. Now... granted, there is no rain in the ten day forecast for my new hometown... nor any remotely cool weather; but I am READY! and smiling!!!!!
