Old Navy Outlet with Danielle
my previous blog entry, I talked about an amazing shopping experience I
had at the Ann Taylor factor outlet. I spent over an hour at Ann Taylor
with a personal assistant, Carrie, who took care of my every need.
Thanks to the generosity of another dear girl friend, I was able to go
on a bit of a shopping spree and add some darling Ann Taylor separates
to my wardrobe.
I told my friend Danielle my plans to go shopping at the outlets, she
indicated that she would like to meet me there, and so I told her to
text when she was getting close. Since I was able to leave earlier than
Danielle, I took care of the Ann Taylor excursion alone, and with
Danielle still a few minutes away, I decided to dash to the ladies room
to transact a different kind of business. I have used the restrooms at
these outlets before, so I wasn't really afraid of walking into them
again. There was one girl already in there when I walked in who finished
before me, and then I quickly took care of my own things along with
taking a few pictures along the way.
exiting the restroom without incident, I walked over to a bench near the
restrooms and waited for Danielle. I happened to find myself in front of
the window to the Calvin Klein store, and so I took a few selfies
outside. When I was done with that, I saw Danielle's car pull into the
large parking lot, and so I called her and waved her over to my
location. Danielle was smartly dressed in a gray top with cute white
capris, and then she had a long-sleeve sweater on appropriate for the
season. To cap things off, Danielle was wearing these darling ankle
boots, and she was dressed perfectly for a morning of shopping.
we got started, Danielle indicated that she needed to use the restroom
as well, and so I guided her back to the women's room and then waited
outside for her. Since this is still new territory for her, we devised a
system where I would alert her if another girl was coming in, and so she
quickly took care of her needs inside while I stood watch
outside. When I could hear her washing her hands, I re-entered the
restroom and took a few pictures of Danielle at the sink. That's what
friends are for, right??
With both of us refreshed, it was time to visit the first store
together, Old Navy. I had just recently shopped at my local Old Navy
with my other girl friend Danielle, and so I was hoping the outlet store
would have a greater selection of things I hadn't seen yet. Danielle and
I entered the Old Navy without incident and began shopping in the dress
section. All of the dresses were familiar to me except for a cute red
casual dress with a fun paisley pattern. The size of the dress said XL,
which is usually more than enough size for me at Old Navy, but it looked
smallish, and so I decided to try it on.
Aside from the dress, I also leafed through the skirts a bit. As was the
case at Ann Taylor, I wanted to find a dressy skirt with a pencil feel
to it, and I did come across some black skirts hanging up with black
polka dots, but they just didn't have anything in the smaller sizes. It
was still fun to browse through the outfits, however, but in the end, I
only took the red paisley dress to the fitting rooms.
As for Danielle, all of the clothing selection was new to her, and so we
spent more time looking for things that would work for her. Danielle
found a few dresses that she liked, and then she also found some cute
tops and a long-sleeve sweater. After browsing through the clearance
area as well, we both decided it was time to head for the fitting rooms.
