I am a huge fan of idioms. Being a current resident of Texas, I hear them a lot. I am immensely enjoying Southerners’ ease in their abundant use of idioms. It cracks me right up.
So it was an idiom that popped into my head as I walked into Anthropologie on Tuesday afternoon, braving a downpour, with the Baby Bankster and #3 in tow….all in the name of the Tag Sale.
A seasoned Tuesday-morning sale fanatic, I had done my home work. I was going in for two price adjustments (YAY!). That was all.
I wasn’t even going to look at new arrivals.
Turn a blind eye, I said to myself…a half-hearted pep talk really.
I perused the sale racks, hoping to find some $9.95 beauts, and instead found two items I had previously dismissed and a dress I hadn’t even noticed before. Shocking, right? I mean, how does that happen when one such as myself visits Anthropologie.com every day? I’m perplexed.
As I turned towards the fitting rooms, there in front of me was this banded temptress, a top currently holding in the #1 spot on my wishlist.
Hmm, what was that again? No looking at new arrivals? Turn a blind eye?
Well, that dog simply won’t hunt. (meaning)
This top is super soft and comfy. I took a size Small. Sizing down for tall girls could be tricky since the banded hem could make a smaller size too short for the long-torsoed amongst us.
Previously Dismissed Items:
And an over the phone acquisition:
How’s about it, ladies? Do you own any of these items?
Anyone want to pipe up about the Fan-cut Iberis?
Or dogs not hunting?
