Kagead's magic shopping powers...

I'd heard about this mythic power that Kagead had with respect to shopping.  In fact, Gilly just did a post about it, and several people mentioned it in her feature on the Boob's blog - I was thinking that maybe if I rubbed myself all over her while we were in Chicago perhaps some of that mojo would rub off on me... I mean, hey, it might be fun and it can't hurt, right?

Flash forward to yesterday and I go in search of a Marshall's cuz I've never, ever been inside one before I all these people I know and love from far and wide and right here in my home town all swear by it - so off I go and I really need something to wear with the actual skirt I happened to be wearing to work yesterday - a cute little orange number.  (and yes, here's another example of me the redhead wearing orange).  But anyway I'm looking around and I stumble upon these cute little brown boots.  They don't even have a zipper or anything - I mean seriously - there's no way on God's green earth that they could possibly fit over my voluptuous calves (you can totally use voluptuous to describe calves) but then I hear it.  It starts off as a whisper... try them on... go ahead... give it a try.... they will fit... the force is with you...  I may have made up that last part, but I swear the rest is totally true.  I'm looking all around, I mean - seriously what crazy fool is whispering about the force in the middle of the day?  But this voice is persistent.  And oddly it sounds like Gilly - but I think that's just because I've never actually heard Kagead's voice before.

Anyway - I'm sick and fucking tired of this voice by about the 15th time it goes through it's little number so I finally decide to go ahead and try them on if only to shut it the fuck up.  And holy shit, they fit.



And then to make matters even better - I come across these short little things.  I don't know why I love them so, but I do.

So... Thank you, thank you, thank you Kagead.  I totally owe you a drink.  Tell me, what do you all think of my new boots??

The best Marshalls I've ever been in is the one within spitting distance of our hotel in Chicago! Last year I bought the most gorgeous, flattering coat there, and I could have bought about 10 things, but I had no room in my overstuffed suitcase!

Love them, by the way!!

Love em! I can't even try to get on the ones without zippers. I have massive calves. :(

But I DO love me some boots - especially those two pairs. :)
