I have to say, I do love Old Navy. But I need to stay the fuck away from their website.
I bought a TON of clothes there the other day, because I had gone to my local store and they were out of my size in my favored style of pants.
And I must have my style of pants: The painter’s jeans. They’re the awesomest pants ever.
They have the little secondary pocket in the main right front pocket that I stash my iPod in, and they have the great little side pocket for stashing all sorts of stuff, but that fits a 16-ounce water bottle perfectly (and I drink those all day at work).
So I went to the website to see if they had my size. And they did, but I kept looking at more and more pages. All of a sudden, I had an enormous amount of clothing in my cart. Even after some paring, I still went a little nuts.
Now, I’ll grant that a lot of this was on sale, but for just over 200 bucks (including tax and shipping), I got:
- 4 pairs of jeans
- One pair of basketball shorts
- A nice fake leather belt
- Two long-sleeve lightweight shirts
- A half-zip pullover
- A sweater
- A long-sleeve heavy shirt
Most other stores, I’d get maybe two pairs of jeans and the belt for the same money.
It all arrived this afternoon, and I still can’t believe that I basically bought a whole new wardrobe. I also can’t believe I spent 200 bucks on clothes in one fell swoop. I don’t think I’ve ever done that before.
It’s especially remarkable because I have always despised shopping for clothes, but Old Navy actually has stuff that fits me well, so I sort of enjoy shopping there.
I probably won’t spend another penny on clothing for the rest of the year, but man. I need to figure out a way to filter that site out so I don’t go and spend that much money again.
