As hot as it is, I have been tired of having just two pair of Capri-length or knee-length pants, and finally dove into the closet looking for the pair of Gloria Vanderbilt capri pants I've worn for several summers. Nowhere in sight, but I did find a dressier pair that I had for wearing to work. Well, now they're summer around-the-house pants. Summer pants inventory just increased by 50%. Though I really do wonder where I put that other pair? I looked in another closet, in the linen cupboard, in case I might have decided to store clothes in there. It will turn up eventually (probably November) and then I'll hang them in the closet with the rest of my trousers.
I don't order clothes online, I usually poke around the thrift store, to start, but I haven't been out to those places for ages. I like Academy for this kind of thing, and Kohl's has some nice discounted stuff, but I haven't been into Kohl's often (just a couple of times to return Amazon packages, since they have some kind of arrangement). The goal is to keep these clothes going until it gets to be safer to shop. My being tired of two pairs of pants really doesn't matter since it isn't like I'm going to the office in the same clothes every day. I have enough fabric, I suppose I could use one of these pair as a pattern to make more.
How are all of you handling the reduced access to shopping?
