Thanks for all your kind words and instigative comments regarding my shopping binge. By request, I am now available for hire as a personal shopper. Base fees start at “mimosa brunch” and escalade in frozen yogurt ounces incrimently. Maximum charges require a sworn statement to be my best friend for life. Inquire within.

Yesterday I told you about the day my life changed. Things got a little heavy and serious. Sorry about that.
Well a few hours after publishing that post, my life changed again. The universe must line up in a weird, special way on April 4th. Maybe next year I’ll discover calorie-free cupcakes or the cure for cancer. Or a shampoo I don’t hate.
I found my new favorite go-to shorts. My lounge-around-the-house, walk-the-dogs, look-cute-for-yoga, run-errands, must-remember-to-shave-my-legs, NEW FAVORITE SHORTS.
(mind you, “running” is not included in the above list. this is due to the afformentioned “chub-rub” issue)
((despite all you really nice folk who said I “have no chub to rub”, I assure you I do, and it happens))
Yes, they are completely worth having to shave my legs for. If you know me (and my severe abhoration for the razor) you know the dollar value on a statement like that.
I’m going back tonight and buying a hundred more pairs. And returning a couple of those stupid cardigans and “real people” clothes. If it can’t be worn with these shorts, it no longer serves a purpose in my closet.
Seriously – think of the comfiness of a pair of stretchy leggings or your favorite sweat pants. Then think of the freedom of a pair of mesh shorts or Nike Tempos. Then roll all that awesome up in a nylon/polyester/spandex ball and you have these shorts.
I want to wear them all day everyday. I’d’ve worn them to work today but that’s pushing the dress code a little too far, even for our rebelious CA office.
And in case you saw them online and were considering purchasing, you should probably refer to the above picture for “real-life” depiction, rather than how they’re showcased on their site :
“Model’s height is 5’9 and wears a size Small”.
Well, your Sarah Soon-To-Be model is also 5’9, and wears a size Large. She, like normal people, need “activewear” for “active” things, and not for sitting around not eating.
