Blazers and nice clothes
I got a panicked email from Whitney last night. Seems her scholarship (sponsored by a huge energy company) likes their kids to have matching outfits. They are ordering Brooks Brothers blazers for them. I looked at the price and realized that I haven't spent that much money on clothes for myself in a year and she is getting one for free. Of course I had to explain what a blazer is (she is a tshirt/jeans kind of gal). And then the panic set in. What size do we order? I don't want to get the wrong one and then have to PAY for another one. Luckily I just got off the phone and was told that if they order a size and it doesn't fit, they will return it and get the right size. Phew, I was afraid they were going to have it embroidered already with the company's name.
So now when she comes home this weekend, we have to go find a light gray skirt/pants and a white button shirt to wear with the free blazer. It's costing me money, but not nearly as much as a blazer would.
