#378: glamour closet.

after he poppeth'd the question, i figured i'd try on dresses. for fun. alone.

so i did.

i used to walk by glamour closet everyday on my way to work and knew it was a sample sale store (read: not a high end couture boutique). so i dropped in unannounced (which is the way they like it. walk-ins only!) and tried on 6 or 7 dresses. was it fun? yes. did i think i'd buy a dress there? no. they carry name brand designer dresses and though they're a fraction of the retail cost, i considered the price too high-brow for me.

but that was before i went ahead and bought my dress at an amy kuschel sample sale. for what i paid for my dress, i could have seriously considered purchasing a dress from GC.

and with their 'extra 20% off all dresses' sale about to start, that little thing called 'buyer's remorse' is creeping up on me.

if you're in SF, check them out. nothing to lose and the staff is uberly kind and helpful (they even allow you to take pictures of the dresses! gasp!).

i'll consider this my PSA for the day. cools?

i also bought an amy kuschel. i thought i was totally in i'm having the buyer's remorse...i kept intending to go to glamour closet, but i never made it....should i look or just hope that there isn't anything better out there?

alex: my advice go look. i had to think about it for a while but if i were you, i'd go look.

except...because i'm me and i'm rather lazy, if "i" was actually me, i wouldn't go.

but if i were you, i really would go. don't be me. be you.

let us know if anything juicy happens.

haha, that sounds just like me. also very lazy...but, you know, if i just happen to be in north beach...i'm going to have to stop by. just to see.
