In keeping with my New Years resolution I went shopping yesterday for some clothes. After some online clothes browsing with Rawbean I decided that Target would be where it's at.
I enter the store and grab a basket thinking I'm only going to buy two items. The men's section was littered with sales and I was happy with the selection, but had a difficult time picking out the right shirt. I sent a pic text to Rawbean, but sadly it didn't send and I didn't notice it till later. I load the basket with four shirts and a couple pairs of jeans and approach the fitting room gal.
Wow she's way cute.
Employee: How many items?
She hands me a card with the number six on them. She pauses and gives me a look of confusion.
Employee: Are you here by yourself?
Me: I am.
Employee: Wow. A guy who shops for himself. That's rare.
Me: Well it's part of my New Years resolution to change my wardrobe out.
Employee: How's that going?
Me: So far so good.
Employee: Can I help you out with that?
Me: How so?
Employee: I can help pick out an outfit.
Me: That would be great actually.
I change into the various shirts and model them for her. She actually picked out my first choice which was cool. I guess I'm getting good at this whole consumer fashion thing. It was nice of her to take time out to help a man shopping alone. Too bad she doesn't make commission. Next time I should bring somebody to help out as not all low paid retail clerks are that helpful.
One thing I don't understand is why pink seems to be coming back in style. I remember during a brief period of the early nineties where that color was in, but thankfully that fad left us as quickly as Max Headroom. As God as my witness pink shall not be worn by me.
Oh and I bought some black Con One Stars. I feel like I'm back in high school again.
I feel girly posting about my shopping experience.
