Shopping Moratorium 2019 | 175/290


I completely spaced on my Shopping Moratorium update last week. It was not on my radar as shopping was not on my radar. I made it two weeks without shopping. for clothes.

Where is my trophy?

Conversely, we had to buy some stuff for the new apartment, as all of our home goods are in storage in a Philadelphia suburb and will remain as such until the end of this week. We took this opportunity to buy the best of what was available in store and using ever-so-many of my Bed, Bath, and Beyond coupons. In the words of Abbi Abrams, “THE COUPONS NEVER EXPIRE.” I stopped myself at attempting a secret handshake with a Bed, Bath, and Beyond sales associate.

This time.

I need to return most of the pieces from my purchase from several weeks ago that I routed directly to our vacation destination. I ordered the shorts in the same size and same style as a pair I already own but tragically, the fit of the white colorway runs differently.

The seersucker one piece swimsuit did not stretch lengthwise. The fabric was absolutely static. Ordering a second suit in a size larger as the J.Crew Help Twitter handle recommended did not compensate for the fact that the suit was not long enough for the torso, as it is proportionate to my six foot two inch frame. Again, ever-so-tragic that J.Crew could not manage to make this suit (and others) in long torso.

Glass half full: I suppose it is good for the wallet.

I try on the short pants, so you don't have to.
