Day 81: Do the clothes make the woman or vice versa?

Tonight I planned to meet up with the Spa Girl at an event she was hosting at a local store to benefit a local charity.

For once in a very long time I was actually early, probably because I wanted to get out of work and the thought of heading to the mall sounded heavenly.

I entered the store and was surprised when I didn’t see her but I didn’t think very much about it because I was early after all.

Part of the event was quick change hair and makeup makeovers and after passing by the empty hair stand a few times I decided to sit down and keep them busy.

Before long the Pixie walked in with her mom, and they did some investigating and some shopping while waiting for me to get my hair done.

They found out our friend was at a different store so we took off to go meet her.

Once inside I took a look around at the styles and considered buying a few things although I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend the money, it was going to a good cause so that certainly didn’t bother me.

One of the shirts was on a mannequin and it was speaking to me.  I knew I had to try it on, and as long as I was trying I had to grab a second shirt too.

Both were very flirty, and romantic in soft girlie colors.  Not really my thing, but for some reason they were calling to me.

I tried them both on for the Pixie and her mom and they liked both of them.  I decided what the heck, I deserve some fun and flirty clothes especially because I’m not feeling especially fun and flirty recently.

Maybe the clothes will soften me and make me feel a bit more feminine at a time when I don’t necessarily feel that way myself.

So do the clothes make the woman?  Or does the woman make the clothes?  Perhaps it’s a little bit of both.  I guess I’ll have to wait until the weather warms up and see.
