Fur Real?

I got a new iPhone a few days ago, so I went through my old phone to upload and save all the pictures and videos that I had taken over the past few years.  I found this one...

My girlfriend Jessie and I were at Macy's buying Christmas decorations a few months ago when we came across a display of all things fake fur.  Jessie, thinking that a girl such as myself would love nothing more than to wear every piece on display, had me pose in it for a quick picture.  Looking back, I kick myself for not buying that fake fur purse...
This got me thinking about having fun with friends while out shopping.  I always find myself drawn to the tackiest pieces in the store, dying to try them on.  Sometimes I kid myself into thinking I could actually style it into sometime cute, but most of the time I just want to see how ridiculous I look.  Once I convinced by buddy Kristina to let me pick out the ugliest outfit I could come up with.  Being the wonderful friend she is, she indulged me and I still laugh thinking about the cat sweater she tried on.
Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this (yes *does* this, as in present tense... I know I'm 25 years old and should be beyond this)...

I totally still do that too! Sometimes I actually find that things that look horrible on the hangers are actually cute! Plus, it's fun to play dress up!
