Casual Weekend and The Betsey Window

by - Saturday, September 29, 2012

Here's one of my weekend-report posts, you know the usual where I talk about random things and where I'm not all dressed up. I should make a category on this already because it seems that I've done this over and over, but I can't help it (see this post, this, this, and this as some). Anyway you get my point.

So today I went to the movies with Penguin but before that, believe it or not, he went shopping (read: He, not I). For some reason, I didn't feel the need to buy anything. Maybe because I know I can't anyway. But then at some point, I have to give it a break, don't we all? And with dressing up too, which is why I'm all dressed down today. Honestly, I don't expect to live up to the blogger image of always being stylishly dressed and with new stuff (sorry to disappoint). Sometimes, it feels good to just dress up like ordinary people for an ordinary day.

Referring to the other part of the title, look at what we saw at the Betsey Johnson window display?! Real, live, mannequins! I was inside the store behind them checking out the pretty heels when one of the girls suddenly moved. I was like "oh, she's alive". That's when I realized what was the commotion outside all about. And since I was visible through the window from the outside as well, I found myself looking at a crowd of people with cameras snapping right there and then. Penguin and I went out of the store and joined in, being silly and all, and snapped away too. Call me ignorant but it's not everyday that I get to see real-life barbies.

Well, that's all. Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend!

On me:
