Sophisticated Lady!

Today I drove up to the mall because I had a few little errands I wanted to run.

Because one of those "errands" was actually seeing a movie, I wore my standard daytime-movie-theatre-attire:

My cropped Adidas track pants, a long sleeved ugly t-shirt...
my adidas flip-flips with socks!! (my husband berates me for this when he witnesses it!)....
no make-up, and dirty hair in a pony-tail!! 
Pretty foxy, as you can see!

Since I had to take my computer into the Apple store while I was at the mall, I lugged around my very corporate looking computer bag:
Hello Kitty!
 After the movie, and my visit to the Apple store,  I hopped over to Nordstrom to pick out a new fragrance.  I finally  decided on the Issey Miyake fragrance called L'eau D'Issey.  Ooh la la.  I love it.  But I had to sniff several fragrances before making my decision.

As the lady who had helped me was ringing up my purchase, I was asking her opinions about some of the other fragrances I had considered over the last few weeks.  One of them being Marc Jacobs "Daisy."  About this one, she just looked at me and said, "That's too young for you."

Too young for me?

I told her I thought that comment was a little offensive.  So in trying to get her foot out of her mouth, she said,  "We have teenagers that come in here wearing flip-flops asking for "Daisy".  You're obviously much too sophisticated for a smell like that."

Um, yes.  Obviously.  I'm way too sophisticated for that:
Sophisticated Lady

That is hilarious! I'm telling you, I totally get it, this week, someone told me that my new, shorter haircut was "age appropriate." Ni-ce. I'm 35. Love your blog, so glad you stopped by Little Blue Deer so I could find you!

My daughter is my clothing conscience. I seldom buy anything without asking her if I'm too old (or young) for the particular item. I trust her completely, and she never steers me wrong. Thank goodness, because she's saved me from some true train wrecks!
