When I was little, there was only one shopping mall in the immediate area. We shopped mostly with the change of seasons which meant we went only a couple of times a year. It was Miami, FL. School clothes and Summer clothes. There was this department store, Burdines. I believe it was bought out by Macy's, but don't quote me on that
and I don't always check my facts before blogging. I remember hating the mall in grade school. I so was not into clothes...but for some reason I loved the smell of brand new clothes...from Burdines. I always hated having to put the new clothes in the washer 'cause the smell would go away.
So, I bought a shirt at Macy's the other day. I've stopped trying things on at the store. I prefer trying on at home. It's sort of a game, really...How Well Do You Know Your Body? I'd say 80% of time I'm on target. Not bad, and always looking for an excuse to go shopping...so if I have to return something, I'm usually sucked into shopping some more.
I put the shirt on and it came back to me! It smelled like Burdines clothes! I love that smell that I remembered from so long ago...and the memories that go along with it, of course.
It's Wednesday, what do you love?
