I have the shits!
I am wearing a Country Road cardigan that I bought for $159.00. I don’t know if that is a lot of money to you but is to me (for a cardigan)
and It has been washed ONCE! It was soft, yummy and BLACK when I bought it, wore it a few times, washed it and now the neck/the v neck/collar part is all wrinkled, kind of stretched and out of shape. The whole this is a faded, washed out black. LOOKS DREADFUL.
I bought a 100% silk top and machine washed it. This top cost $139.00!!!!! Again, worn once, washed once and now ruined! It dried all crinkily and stiff.
I bought 4 Country Road singlets, Washed ONCE and they all changed colours. the seam threads remain the orinignal colour but everything turns to grey. I bought a white one – NOW GREY – I bought a nude one – NOW GREY, I bought a baby pink one – NOW GREY!!!!!!!!!!
Even my white undies, the seams (the edging /the borders) turn grey.
I separate my lights from darks.
I feel like I am geting fistfuls of money and setting them alight for the hell of it!
Why am I such a fuck head!
I asked FH this and his advice was to ask my mum what to do. That lady hasn’t got a clue obviously because I don’t have a clue and I have learnt nothing from her. I told him I am posting this on vogue, VOGUE GIRLS RAISED ME! It’s not that my mum doesn’t know anything, she doesn’t own silk or cashmere or separate clothes, let alone towels, she has a 10 year old top loader and only every uses 1 cycle. She doesn’t have anything to offer me in this department.
From this day forward. I am going to send out all my washing to the dry cleaners.
I think i might head out and buy that top again. It was really lovely and I really like it. I feel like its a waste of money at the same time though.
Its just bull shit though! I want to wear natural fibres and polyester is the enemy.
Side note, I bought a nice outfit for that job interview, for the job I GOT! It was from Cue. The top I bought cost like $200 or something and IT WAS POLYESTER! what a rip off! How can they justify that!!! I wore it in Febuary and it was sweltering hot. After the interveiw (because I had the day off) I decided to tick off a few things from my to do list. I caught the train to Waverton and walked to the Pacific Highway to buy a DSLR from FH for our 5 year anniversary then I walk to North Sydney Train Station then From Marrickville Station Home. I am not exagerating, The top was DRIPPINNG wet. I could ring it out. I had a Cue Jacket with me too (for the interview of course) and I was carrying that, it was soo embarrassing to have the back of my top ALL WET! It was soo obvious. The Jacket cost $320 or something like that and the lining and details are POLYESTER!!! The skirt that was $200 had a polyseter lining too!!! The outfit cost me a small fortune and I have only worn that outfit once because of the horrible experience I had with it.
That day was just horrible all together! I was so nervous about the interview. I bought new stocking too they cost like $10! Pull them on. I had new shoes from Wittner that had a zipper details on it. I walk out the house and one leg brushes past the other and I have a huge ladder from my inner ankle to my inner thigh and still have to walk to the station! I get to the trains station and I have a blister on the back of my ankle, even though I am wearing stockings and my back already has sweat beads. I catch the un-airconditioned train with my back not touching the vinyl seats.
Walk to the interview. Arrive FAR TOO EARLY! Fan myself. I call a friend to get advice on whether I should ditch the stocking or not. I decided to keep them on, because I didn’t moisturize my legs and it wasn’t too noticeable and because I had a blister and didn’t want to aggravate that further.
Have the interview – ace it of course……. hheheheheh wanker.
Meet up with my sister in the city for morning tea.
Head to the station, go to Waverton (another un-airconditioned inner city train) My blister is pretty bad right now. It is like 35 degrees. I have shoes in one hand and jacket in the other, I begin my walk to the Pacific Hwy BAREFOOT like a LOSER but in nice looking clothes! The ground BURNS the soles of my feet and shreds my stockings
By the time I get to the camera shop, the back of my shirt is drenched. I buy what I need and back out of the shop! I don’t turn around and walk, I walk backwards! NOT KIDDING!
I find out that Nth Sydney Train station is a good 20 mintutes away! I look for a chemist on the way to buy some thongs/massuer shoes. I find one, they direct me to another chemist I can’t find that stocks them!!!!!! I feel like running in front of a bus!
Anyway, long story short, I finally get home! I open the kitchen drawers, pull out some scissors and cut the stockings off me. Rip my shirt off and have a cold shower with bra on. I couldn’t bare trying to reach behind and unhook it off my sweaty body!
WHAT A DISASTER!
Morale of the story. DON’T WEAR POLYESTER! Don’t wear shoes you haven’t broken in.
I got the JOB!!!! and FH LOVED the camera!
