Yesterdayís trip to the costume store was unsuccessfulóI refuse to pay $100 for a costume that hardly has any fabric and barely covers my ass, thank you very much! So I hightailed it to Chinatown today, thinking I could find a cool kimono and go as a geisha (yes, I know thatís Japanese but they sell everything in Chinatown!).
I had the most perfect gold, Asian-style dress from Vietnam back at my momís house in Upstate, but I didnít think to ask her to ship it and now time is running out. As I shifted through the racks of dresses, everything was super-expensive and nothing fit quite right (My Vietnam dress was tailor-made just for me). As in my typical shopping style, I spent hours and hours examining at the fabrics and scarves and earrings and shoes, then went home completely empty-handed. I mean, I didnít want to buy something if I didnít absolutely love it, so Iím going to get creative and put together my own costume from stuff I have at home. Even if I donít love it, at least it I didnít waste a lot of cash.
