In Search Of Made In The USA : Day 1

It was Memorial Day weekend and sales, sales, sales everywhere. So, what a girl to do other then go shopping.

I looked through both designer and non designer garments but as I was picking through each, something snapped. I was hit by lightning.

It suddenly down on me that every piece of cloth I was touching, was “not born here”, they were all “foreigner”, of a different nationality. I could not find one piece made in… Hawaii or Alaska or Puerto Rico or Virgin Islands. They were all confectionated somewhere else.

This is my quest to find a garment somewhere, somehow Made In The USA. Hopefully, it will be a easy search. Hopefully, I will find it tomorrow. Hopefully, I will be able to find it before year’s end. I am going on a scavenger hunt for that one garment. And the search begins!

Watercooler Heart-to-Heart : Office Bathroom

 

Three women rushing to the stalls…

A – You know what, I don’t like to iron at all. I let the drying cycle to the work and if doesn’t come to par, I remove it and put it right back in the dryer.

B – I don’t care what anyone says on how I look but I don’t buy anything else other then wrinkle free clothes. Who wants to spend time ironing?!

C – I hear you. Listen, I don’t know about you but I don’t iron for anyone at all; not for my husband, not for my kids, not to anyone and I don’t care. I don’t iron for me why would I do it for them? I have to much to do.

B – I bought a steamer and it is hanging somewhere because it is not working properly. It warms up sometimes and others… who knows what it does. Maybe, I am doing something wrong but… it better work work because I paid buckaroo for it.

Really?! Did she sprinkle some water, soften the fabric a bit before sticking it right back in the dryer? Humm… dried baked apparel, way to go.

Not buying anything other than wrinkle free clothe? No way, seriously?! Silk does a body good, if you can afford it and make you feel good.

Ironing is a shore for some and it can be a form of relaxation. So go for it as you will look pretty and dandy when you wear your non wrinkle free clothe!
