sometime in the past few weeks, i became totally addicted to TLC's what not to wear. i'm not really sure how it happened. i was aware of the show before, and i think i'd seen a couple of episodes, but all of a sudden: boom! i'm recording every episode i can get my hands on, and i'm sitting on the couch watching them back to back to back to back to back. for weeks now! yesterday i watched five episodes in a row; it's craziness.
i honestly started to learn some stuff, and it made me want to go shopping. i always clean out my closet and my dresser twice per year (when switching to/from our summer/winter clothes), but this year i did it with renewed enthusiasm and a new set of criteria. i've bought a couple of new shirts that i wouldn't have necessarily considered before, and now they're my new favorites. i have kind of fallen in love with stacy and clinton. i'm daydreaming about whether or not my veganism could give me that "special something" that would make them pick me… you know, make me all awesome and fashionable without using leather, wool, angora, silk… it could be a good angle, don't you think? i've seen them do an episode on a woman who didn't wear leather, but she totally had cashmere all over her closet, so she doesn't count.
i want to be on the show!
possible cons: what if they didn't like my new shirts that i just bought? what if they wanted to force me to get rid of all of my AR t-shirts (and you know they would; they'd be all, um, you're 34, not 14, missy!)? what if nick did something inSANE to my hair because i already stole his thunder by getting a rather major haircut two weeks ago?
but oh, the pros: carmindy would talk about vegan makeup and brushes on air! they'd send me to mooshoes! they'd consider me a challenge and work extra hard on my behalf! i'd get $5000 for a whole new wardrobe!
okay, i'm getting over-excited. i have like 234 episodes of WNTW waiting on my DVR for me; i'll just continue to live vicariously through all of those girlies.
