Changing rooms in high street stores are shit.
They fall, broadly, into two categories: the Topshop type, boiling hot, with those little size cubes all over the dusty floor and a sales assistant who insists that anyone who accompanies you must themselves be carrying a Size 6 peplum skirt and a Size 18 poncho and the more upmarket type, à la Jigsaw, where sure, your boyfriend can sit on a comfortable chaise longue right outside, but the sales assistant is constantly flitting back and forth and no sooner would you have invited him in for a quick blow job in front of the mirror than she’d stick her head round the curtain to ask: ‘Did you see we have it in pink, too?’
It’s a shame, because boys give the best compliments on new clothes.
When a friend says ‘I like that dress,’ she’s thinking ‘You could wear it in the office, out to dinner, and to at least two weddings this summer.’
When a boy says ‘I like that dress,’ his fingers will be curling round the neckline, tugging sharply to see just how much give there is.
A friend will say ‘It fits really nicely at the back.’
A boy will say ‘Your arse looks *amazing*’ and, hopefully, give it a proprietary slap for good measure.
But, because I can’t get those reactions in store, I have to model new clothes in the bedroom. Which, inevitably, leads to this:
i hate trying on clothes in general…i never saw the sweetest thing, did he really lick it to determine what it was?! that scene was amazing!
The Sweetest Thing is a very silly film, but it’s a fun way to pass a couple of hours – yes, he did lick it!
And I’m totally with you re. the hell of trying on clothes
Also hate trying on clothes. Total nightmare.
Love The Sweetest Thing, it’s weird, crazy, and totally insane……but really funny. 🙂
It is surprisingly good!
