Trying to quell the pre-shopping horrors. Nexus of fear: dressy/formal, hot weather, & meeting strangers in non-professional role.
Trauma held at bay by super shopper Joe. Dress, skirt, 2 shrugs acquired. Now food before shoes & shells & his suit. #shopping
Hit the shopping wall, but after easily twice the usual number of try-ons. Shoes acquired & a probably workable top. Phew.
Gentle, poppy versions of songs to which goths used to dance darkly play in Jos. A. Bank as Joe buys a suit. #death #bleakness #sale!
