I am officially an adult.
It started out very innocently, just window shopping. And then we went in to look around.
I can’t help myself. When I walk by Banana Republic, I am compelled to go in and gawk.
We passed by some jackets and I felt it a necessity to try one on. It was PERFECT.
Sort of like a trench coat, but this had shape and wasn’t too long on me. It was the perfect weight (not too light or too heavy) and the fabric was SO soft. I really wanted it.
Thankfully I had a GAP gift certificate, since there is no way I would be able to afford it. (Did you know that you can use a Old Navy/GAP/Banana Republic gift card at any of the stores? I mean, I knew they were all under the same owner, but I had no idea the gift cards were interchangeable. How cool is that?!)
So, anyways, Banana Republic has always been my “grown up” store. I adore everything in the store, but gasp when I look at the prices, even the sales. But all the same, I hope/dream/wish on a star that SOMEDAY I will be able to resemble the mature, amazingly sophisticated mannequins.
Well, now that I’ve bought my BEAUTIFUL new jacket, I think I am officially on my way to being a grown up and I couldn’t be more pleased.
