I had some trouble with this sweater today.
I acquired it in the past few days with the H&M 40% off coupon after weeks of indecision. The first time I laid eyes on this fuzzy green goodness, it was perfectly draped on Manny Quinn Two & A Half Men anyone? in the window. Piqued by the color, pattern, and texture of the sweater, I swung in, for what I promised Andrew, would be a quick glance.
After admiring the sweater from a closer vantage point I decided to hold off due to the hefty $50 price tag I'm not a fan of paying full price for clothes but my mind kept wondering back to it even days after. So two days ago when H&M announced a 40% off coupon, I knew what I would spend mine on, that fuzzy green sweater I had so lusted after. I assumed it would fit as I had first observed it on Manny Quinn, so I didn't bother trying it on. Big mistake.
Fast forward back to today. I woke up excited to display my new sweater and impatiently pulled it over my messy head of hair as soon as I had finished brushing the pearly whites. And that's when the excitement ended. Big, baggy, and way too oversized for its and my own good.
A recent facebook friend's status post monopolized my mind. He was upset at brands that pinned the back of clothes during model photo shoots to create the illusion of tailored, perfectly fit clothing. My mind wandered back to a recent excursion to the mall, where I too had noticed what seemed like an increase in the back pinning of Manny Quinn's clothes.
But in a tough situation, what good does it do to worry and panic? No good is the answer. So I pulled my melted excitement off the ground, grabbed my trusty black studded belt, and whipped that oversized green sweater into shape.
And that's how I fixed what Manny Quinn started.
