I love following rules. Seriously, I do. I'm that kind of productive member of society. Don't ever play a board game with me if you're not willing to play it RIGHT. But sometimes, even I break the rules. I'm not proud of it, but it's true. I hope you won't think less of me for it.
Today, as is sometimes the case, I had to leave work during the middle of the day to go to a doctor's appointment. I usually hurry back to the office as soon as I'm done. But just this once, I let myself wander into a nearby store for a few minutes of shopping on my way back.
I knew it was wrong. Shopping during work? It's one thing to shop online from your computer. You're pretty much expected to do that. I think HR departments factor that in to their overhead. But going inside an actual brick-and-mortar store during work hours??? I felt guilty the whole time.
But tell me this: if the universe hadn't been supportive of my little detour, would I have found this fab summer dress on sale for $41?
It's by Akualani, in case you're wondering. And the scene of the crime was a litle boutique in Noho called Zachary's Smile.
Don't judge me.
