My boyfriend’s birthday is coming up, and I'm the type of person who goes all out with gifts. Usually I think of a really thoughtful romantic gift; sometimes it'll even be something I make with my own two hands. Not to toot my own horn, but I make some pretty good homemade gifts- but I'm not a craft expert either. I’ve learned that my man loves to look fresh: he loves to stunt. That's cute and everything, and I love that about him, so this year I decided to set aside my crafts and try to buy him some really nice clothes, maybe a pair of shoes or two.
I was at the mall and I walked into Urban Outfitters, a store my boyfriend and I typically love to walk into to look around and never really buy anything. Urban Outfitters is known for expensive clothing, expensive everything, but they have some of the cutest things and prettiest clothes. It's such a nice store; I love the concept and the vibe to it. They sell turntables, books, cassettes, Polaroid cameras, furniture, all kinds of things. I never dared to buy anything from there because everything is so overpriced, even though the temptation kills me. I love everything in that store. But I walked in there full gear and ready to break my pocket for this man. I looked around, trying to remember what things he liked when we last came together. I end up spending $68 dollars on two shirts. Let me go to Ross or Marshall's; I'll come out dressed as a queen with $68 dollars. This is ridiculous. I'm still not even done with his birthday shopping; I'm just waiting on my next pay check to come in. Moral of the story: Urban Outfitters is out to get you and your money. Don't ever go there; you'll fall in love and be broke within a week. Hey, it's all worth it when you find the right guy you wanna spoil.
