Hoo’s Bay?

My sister and I went fall clothes shopping last weekend. I pride myself on finding awesome bargains and my sister is even better, so needless to say we tore that mall up.

I found boots and heels and sweaters (Adam I will not call them jumpers) and other long-sleeved shirts, since it seems there’s more than one season here in Michigan, plus tights and the most delicious hot apple cider drink in the world. Mmm, fall.

While wandering through one department store I realized something startling: I’ve become a woman in her mid-thirties. I don’t know when exactly it happened, but I was carrying five pairs of socks and two sweaters and I suddenly realized they were all the same brand.

That brand? St. John’s Bay.

Now, I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with SJB. Clearly not since I bought three things from them (sweaters were $20 each, btw) but I remember always thinking it was for people older than me.

What else am I supposed to be doing now that I’m showing my demographic?

I have a post on the Army of Erma’s blog called Extreme Anthropamorphizing.

    Also, I love the fact that one of your randomly possibly related posts at the bottom of this is for Krondor: The Assassins.

    • *snerk*

      I don’t quite know what to think about that. :P

  4. Come on, Hooey, say it with me. Juuuuumpeeeeers!

    From now on, you must always groan when standing or sitting, must forget why you walked into rooms (or increase the frequency), and find more greys.

    That said, I’ve been doing all three since my late teens. Huh.


    • I creak and pop when I get up, does that count? I’ve definitely found more grays. Gah!

  5. Hmm…. you’ve already done the big girl haircut… Buick here you come :P

  6. *lines up to see Hoo’s ‘demographic’*

  7. Soon you will be down watching the light and water show every night with the rest of the blue hairs. ;)

    • Would you believe I didn’t see that once this summer? I’m shocked!

  8. Don’t worry. It’s all a matter of perspective. When I bought myself some nice adult diapers the other day, well, that was a bummer.

    I love to shop! Can I come next time? Pleeeeaaaasse?

  9. I’m not familiar with St. John’s Bay, but then again I don’t remember the last time I shopped that wasn’t at Old Navy, lol.
