So I finally sucked up my fears of damaging the bag and made the switch to my Givenchy Nightingale. Took it out on its first play day! I absolutely love it and its large size. I love it so much, I think I want to invest in one of the smaller sizes, maybe in another color other than black… but not now. That can wait until I deem myself worthy of another overly expensive self-gifting splurge.
Per usual, traffic on the 405 S was stop and go after work, so I decided to stop by the Nordstrom Rack at the Howard Hughes Center. I wasn’t really expecting to find anything good, and I wasn’t on the prowl to spend more money. This stop was more of an impulsive I’m-right-by-the-freeway-exit-and-traffic-sucks-so-I-might-as-well-take-a-gander-and-hope-traffic-has-died-down-by-the-time-I’m-done type of stop. I wasn’t even planning on sifting through any of the clothing, really. I had planned to browse quickly through the jewelry, purses, and shoes. On the way from the purses to the shoes, however, are the clothes. I couldn’t help but look, just a little bit. To my delight, my little bit of looking resulted in spotting a pair of leather-looking shorts. Leather shorts have been on my shopping list for quite some time. I had been tempted to cave and buy a faux leather pair from Forever 21, but the feel of the faux leather just couldn’t cut it, even if the price was quite easy on the wallet. This random spotting of the leather shorts turned out to be even better. They’re rag & bone and real leather. Unfortunately, the tag read, “Size 29″; I’m typically a 25. It was a good idea that I decided to cross my fingers and try them on anyway because they ended up fitting marvelously! I’d personally like to thank my unproportionally large rear for that. I walked out of the store happy as a clam — the proud owner of a pair of rag & bone leather shorts! To top things off, I found that traffic had dissipated by the time I hit the road again!
