Sadly it has been quite nippy and rainy here in Toronto which is slightly depressing seeing as though my birthday is in less than a week! Yup, that’s right, I will be 21 on Saturday and to be honest I am not looking forward to it in the slightest! Sure I can now drink legally in the states but apart from that – meh. I’m sure once, it’s come and gone I’ll get a little more excited. Today though I went birthday gift shopping, not for myself, but for Mike. His birthday, funnily enough, is 3 days after mine which makes it SUPER handy to remember. I’m not going to tell what i got him (cause he reads the blog – NO SURPRISES FOR YOU MIKE!! I rocked the cutest printed shorts from Joe Fresh! Joe Fresh has really become hit and miss for me. When they first came on the scene, their styles, prices and materials were are pretty reasonable and well made. Now, their sizing is ranging from a size 00 to 14 (16 if you’re lucky), their prices have risen and their quality control is just not what it used to be. When I first tried on these shorts, they were sewed incorrectly and the hem of the leg was no longer straight across. Luckily though they had another one in my size in the back that looked fine and even then, the associate that got the better pair gave me such a fuss and said (without even looking) that there weren’t any in my size in the back and then proceeded to look me up and down. Seriously?? I work in retail and I would look to the moon and back for a particular item to gain my customers trust, this girl, was doing the exact opposite. If you wanna shop at Joe Fresh, I would say stay clear of the stores and just go online. Ah well, s**t happens. Actually, I take that back, Chic Happens! These shorts despite the rude service are quite comfy and light and perfect for summer. The print is adorable with coloured flowers and monarch butterflies and pairing it with this statement sweater, I was all sorts of fab!!
