yard sale mishap

Yesterday I went to a church yard sale. We stopped quickly by whilst we were in a rush to go elsewhere (Berkeley to pick up my dress for my brother's wedding, and then onto David's Bridal and grad rehearsal).

So I saw this really yummy candle! It must not have been too yummy, for I forget the flavor. But it was green and passionate looking. I opened it up, and melted wax spilled on my light blue shirt. No, this is unacceptable. This cannot happen, I have places to go, people to see. So I scurried quickly over to the mounds of clothing (if you frequent yard sales then you know they can be exhausting!) and I saw and my size. Naturally I take it, no matter what the t-shirt design. The right size is a gem in the messy messy world of thrift shopping.

Long story short, I spend the rest of the day in a dark blue shirt with large bright blue cursive letters, "who's your daddy?" (Pause, and think about me wearing that shirt. ME.)

Needless to say, I was the only one at rehearsal wearing a red sweater zipped all the way up. It was for their protection! But I'm sure the ladies at David's Bridal thought me to be quite strange. Coming in with that attire, and then trying on such a pretty dress. I'm not even sure if the shirt was gender appropriate. All I know is it only cost 50 cents. And I'd rather look ridiculous than look dirty!


  1. Did I ever tell you about the time I was at a flea market with a friend and split my pants? It took 45 minutes to even find a jacket to keep tied around my waist. It was horrifying.

  2. oh my goodness! lol. i'm laughing, i'm sorry. that is horrifying. i'd cry. but i'm glad you were at a place with clothes, it's better than splitting your pants at say...a theme park? hehe.

  3. HAHAHA PLEASE wear that shirt ALL the time!! I want a picture!!! only YOU!

  4. i too would rather be ridiculous and even make people laugh than be dirty. although dirt is a very effective tool to make people laguh as well. and i like to be dirty as in grubbing in the dirt. wax, though- totally different.

    you are the bomb. <3 it.

    i used to own a coupel pairs of jeans that had flies whcih never stayed up. it led to many embarrassing situations and may have prevented me from ever speaking to my cursh of 6 years.

    then i discovered safety pins. and then i wised up and tossed the pants. they weren't flattering anyways.

  5. aaand i can't spell on Mondays.

  6. aaaaaw staci you're mean. hahaha jk. i'll wear it for you.

    and laura, that's sweet. i'm glad you ditched the pants.


  7. that's hilarious!!! awesome!

  8. dirty - i vote for dirty. but then i am the nanny who walks around with baby puke stains on my shoulder and say "oh you mean my badge of love", yes i know you're staring in utter shock no matter what i wear. fate people (me not you!!!) always get stared at.

  9. that's not trueeeeee <3 only REALLY fat peeps, and you're cute and plump like me.
