Fitting Rooms

Met my daughter downtown after work to go shopping at Anthropologie for something for her birthday, and we did far better than our usual average. Of the six garments taken into the fitting room ...

... three turned out to be resounding successes. We could not remember ever before achieving a 50% success rate. The orange-red Jam Jar Cardigan was the star acquisition. We also scored a crisp spring coat (though it only feels like spring now, it is not really spring, but the weather is weirdly coinciding with the fact that the earliest spring clothes are now hitting the stores, so a San Francisco shopper is doubly motivated to go for spring clothes now) and an appliqued tee that is described as raspberry but to me in person looks more like fuchsia.
