the dynamic duo {1.}...

I am pretty much a homebody. I like my alone time, and I love to be at home just relaxing. This being the case, I basically spend the majority of my free time with three people. I am either with my mama, Bug, or the one and only Bff Jil (who y'all can now follow on Twitter)!

I see Bff Jil at least 4 times a week...if not more. She is kind enough to let me come and chill at her casa during my lunch break from The Job. I hang out while she works and I share my Cheetos with her dog Lulu. Anywho...we spend a lot of time together...basically we have a fake lesbian lovefest happening. So, I decided our adventures (no matter how big or small...twss) should have there own title on this here blog. I now present you with installment one of the dynamic duo that is Bff Jil and myself...
One of our favorite things to do is shop...and eat. Which basically goes hand in hand. So, whenever I mention that Bff Jil and I did something together...the eating is just implied. It's how we roll. Back to the shopping...we love to shop (Jil has a shopping addiction...I do not, yet). The weird thing is...is that when it comes to fashion the two of us do not agree on ANYTHING. Jil has a style that is her own, and I have a style that is my own. Neither one of us do the whole 'trendy' thing. We go with what we like and what works for us. This basically means that during one shopping outing we each hold up stuff and say, "Oh! This is super cute" while the other one rolls her eyes, or scoffs, or says, "That is revolting. Basically if you buy that I am ending our friendship." Then we buy the offensive item...and call each other biatch. It works for us.

Although, lately we have been agreeing on quite a bit when it comes to fashion...it is pretty darn alarming to both of us. Especially when we get in a bitch-fight about who gets to buy a certain pair of super cute sequin black ballet flats from Target, (yeah Jil I am still bitter about that one). Anywho...our adventure was photographed specifically for blog purposes...because I am seriously lacking in having a life and I have resorted to taking pictures at the mall. Here we go...

This shirt is SO out of control...well at least for me. I am a strictly neutral kind of gal. I wear black constantly. I am not a fan of bright colors or crazy patterns, but for some reason I spotted the crazy that is this top and was compelled to try it on. I blame Satan. Jil told me to strike a pose...and that is exactly what I did. Love me through my adoration of this top...

There is one thing Bff Jil and I can ALWAYS agree on. That thing is when stuff is a straight up heinous hot tranny fashion disaster. I am so sorry, but in my fashion universe there is NEVER a good excuse to wear camo print leggings. Never. Not ever. No way. No how. Sick-to-the nast...

Speaking of heinous hot tranny fashion disasters, when the freak did corduroy make a comeback?! I am SO not okay with that fact. It is bad enough that skinny jeans are STILL in, but the fact that corduroy skinny jeans are being sold make me feel a bit queasy. That color? Um...my face says exactly how I feel about it...

After we both drained our bank accounts, we headed over to Target for some cheap glory. Holllller fabulous ballet flats that are currently on sale. We basically tried on every freaking pair in the store...

See? We totally tore through that aisle like a fashionista hurricane. Yes, we were those rude people who tried on 40,000 pairs of shoes and left them all on the ground. Sorry Target employees...we were tired, high off of purchases, and hungry...

Speaking of hungry...after we left Target we made a quick stop by one of our FAVORITE fast food joints. The one, the only, holy grail that is Sonic. I love it. They have bomb ass mozarella sticks and slushees that make me weak in the knees. So, after we placed our deep fried sugary order...we noticed something as we were waiting for the car hop gal to bring us our goodies. Do you see that sign?! Are you kidding me?! A footlong that will go on and on?! That is sheer twss joke advertising. Just wait, it gets better...

BAM! Just like that. Just when I thought I couldn't love Sonic anymore than I already do...they go and make some of the best slogans I have ever seen in my 24 years of existence. You best believe we are stretched and ready. Let's do this. *Ahem*...

Basically this is the best way to spend a Saturday. Minus the 100 degree temperature, it was fabulous. How did you all spend your weekends? Please share...

xoxo

Yay for Bffs. Looks like you had fun shopping. I went shopping this weekend too, and I saw those ugly corderoy pants at Old Navy too. It made me gag a bit.

I love our shopping trips!! They are the best. Next is Roseville for sure...hello Anthro and Hooters or will it be CPK!

I LOVE my black sequin flats..can not wait to wear them. Oh and I will be back to get the zebra stripe shoes too..even if they are made from hair that looks like it was just shaved off my dog.

Bahahaha, love the emotion captured in the corduroy (sp?--aka to lazy to scroll back to the top and check spelling) picture!

Vanessa said...

That top is gorgeous! You look amazing in it! I hope you bought it!!

Sadly, I've never had sonic in my life. I need to fix this asap.

Sonic looks like something we should have over here in Europe, except that then no one would get the twss jokes... Hmmm.
