Not One of My Finest Moments

Have you entered my Christmas in July Surprise Giveaway? If not go here to enter!
This past weekend, I did something that wasn't one of my better moments. Let me start at the beginning....
It all started last week, when I was shopping in Target, I found this green dress:
While I was there and choosing the green one, I noticed that they had it in several other colors. I had debating getting a second one because it was so comfortable but I bought the green one and left the store. Flash forward to this past Saturday. Once I got off work, I decided that I wanted to go back to Target and get the same dress but in cobalt blue. I usually look nice in that color and I knew that I wanted to take it on my upcoming vacation (more on that later), so off I went to Target. 

During the week, the dress had been on sale so their stock of probably about 10 in each color went to about 3 in each color and the obscure sizes that never fit anyone. As I started looking at the dresses another girl comes up to the rack as well. I can see that there's only one dress left in the color that I want. I can't even see what size it is but it looks smaller. Right as I reached for the loner blue, it happened

The girl became a complete wench, she could tell I was eyeing that blue dress so she did something completely catty. She literally put her hand inside of the hangers and scooted down about 20 dresses so they were all in front of her. Really?!? Wow! So I did the only thing I could think of to let her know that she didn't get to me. I took one of the lone color she left in front of me and said, "Oh my gosh! These dresses are so adorable! I'm glad they still have it in my size and in red!" and walked away to another section of the clothing. Well... it backfired. She gave me the stink eye and put her grubby little paws all over the lone blue dress and stalked off with it. 

At this point, I knew now that, the blue dress was not going to fit her. I got a good look at it and I knew that it was a small (which I wasn't even a 100% would fit me) and this girl was clearly a large. AND before anyone starts saying I'm mean, I'm sorry but it was a fact. The girl probably couldn't get it over her gianormous fake boobs. So as I was shopping around in the clothing section, I kept an eye on her. She kept shopping around and then finally walked into the dressing rooms. Well I needed to go in there as well to try on the stuff that I was holding. 

Once in the dressing room, I realized we were side by side. I honestly didn't plan to be right beside her because when I when in there was only one other open room. I got done before her and ended up going out. This is where the not proud moment came in.... I hung out in the shoe section (that's right beside the fitting room) until I saw her come out. She stuck the blue dress on the return rack and walked away. 

I walked over, picked up the dress and proceeded to the checkout. 
I am the proud owner of the now infamous cobalt blue dress and I think it looks great! Tomorrow I promise about my fabulous vacation coming up in 2 weeks! For those of you who follow me on twitter probably already saw though!

OK you had me laughing right out loud! OMG I can't believe that girl was so catty! That is soooo funny though that you acted like you liked the red to see if she would...I would have totally did the same thing....I may or may not have had that happen over Gymboree clothes for Kelcee before LOL...

Soooo I am so glad you scored that blue dress....I believe in Karma and since she wasn't nice to you the dress didn't fit and you my friend got your pretty blue dress

That is so funny. I would say that is a proud moment. It isn't like you got into an all out brawl (though that would have been hilarious)! Glad you got your dress.

Florida Girl Meets the Midwest said...

That sounds like a fashion victory to me. Yeah for you!

Epiphany said...

All the Small Things said...

That story just made my Monday! Lucky for you everyone has those moments and I would have done the same thing. No one was hurt and you walked away with the dress you wanted. Mission accomplished! :)

Meghan said...

Oh my gosh! What a wildebeest! Seriously - who DOES that??? I am so glad you stuck it out and got what you wanted - serves her right!

The Tucci's! said...

Way to go girl! :-) Wish I was there to partake in the blue dress drama.. LoL

Nicole said...

LOL I love it!! Good for you! And she was just being a biatch if she clearly knew a small wasn't going to cut it! So she deserved to be stalked lol

Hutch said...

Well played on your part! The better person always wins in the end :)

Aimee said...

This is fantastic!! You rock and you did the best thing. I hate when people are such witches about it. Especially when they dont even plan on getting it. Damn her for inconveniencing you

Brittany Ann said...

You go girl! A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do when it comes to dresses and Target deals!

Kristen @ Miss Prissy Paige said...

What a b* stealing those dresses. The nerve! I'm glad you got the dress though!

Kristen @ ladybug-blessings.com said...

haha! Okay, I honestly don't think she did ANYTHING wrong! She was the mean one. I cannot believe she actually moved ALL the dresses to her side. What a mean person! I'm glad you got the blue one. I would have done the same thing hanging out by the shoe section to get to the fitting room. I have a large chest and there is no way a small would be appropriate considering you would be hanging out of it!

Karren said...

LOL! I'm glad you got the dress you wanted - it's super cute!

Tara said...

hahahaha!! i LOVE this story!! glad you got your dress! :)

Rachel said...

HAHA girl I would've done the same thing, and she put it on the return rack so it's fair game!

Kerr said...

nothing to be ashamed of! you went after what you wanted!

Steph S. said...

This totally made me laugh out loud - YOU GO GIRL! That was a smooth move. Ok, everything you did in that situation was pretty smooth. But YAY - you got the dress - and nice, color, BTW!

Mo said...

Don't be ashamed - that's just STELLAR shopping! Wenches will come along, you just have to be able to beat them. Congrats!!

Crystal said...

Too funny!! Too bad you didn't end up right in front of her at check out so she could see you buying the blue dress (you could turn around stick your tongue out for extra good measure).

Very cute dress!

♥ Annie ♥ said...

This is hilarious!! It sounds like something I would do and have actually done :)

samnhal said...

That's not bad! She was mean. I would have stalked her too until she put it back. It's not like you stole it from me. What a crazy lady though!
