I guess in my mind when I was putting this look together I was thinking that if I could not get to Ghana by air I could get there by sea; just reminds me of something nautical.
So one of the lovely nurses on my floor works part time at J Crew because she loves to shop. Once I found out I would have her be on the look out for great buys and deals, so that I don’t make futile trips as my time is very limited.
Anyhoo, I saw this blazer and I knew it had to me mine. J Crew blazers are usually a little pricey but this one was $50.
My mother and I went to the Banana Republic outlet and fell in love with the shop. She proceeded to pick all these clothes and of course dragged poor me to the dressing room and insists that I enter the stall with her. She begins trying on the clothes and nothing is fitting. BR outlet only runs to about a size 8 which is slightly small for my mother. With a huge look of annoyance on my mother’s face, she says: “I hate this shop”. As we are leaving she looks back with a wistful look in her eyes saying, ‘ah but these clothes are so classy’.
It would be great if BR had a wider selection of sizes so my dearest mother could join in my delight at the Banana Republic outlet.
