Shopping with Grandpa: Denim Shirt Edition
In December 2009, my grandpa took me to the mall for the purpose of shopping for my Christmas present together. I told him that I was in the market for a denim shirt to add to my wardrobe, so that was what we were looking for. It didn't take me long to find the perfect shirt: it was stonewashed denim, with pearlized snap buttons. It looked just like the cowgirl shirt I was envisioning.
But when I showed it to Grandpa, he completely rejected my pick. "I'm not paying good money for a brand-new shirt that already looks like it's old and worn out!" he said. The denim shirt that I'm wearing in the pictures was his pick.
It's much more of a loose and baggy style than I normally wear. Actually, the style of the shirt reminds me of a maternity top.
Hence the imaginary belly pose.
Sometimes I crack myself up more than I should.
And, for the record, I went out again after Christmas and bought the stonewashed cowgirl shirt. So hey, in the end, I got the shirt that I wanted, plus a shirt that will come in handy when there's a baby on the way, so I think I got a pretty good deal out of the whole adventure, don't you?
Do you have good memories and stories about the origins of all of your clothes, too? Oh good. For a minute there, I thought it was just me.
