Who’d have thought I’d find something to wear in Costco? Not I! Usually it’s full of jeans in dowdy styles and fleeces in odd pastel colours! Sometimes they have Converse there, but again, in weird pastel colours. Now and then they’ll get some OK lingerie in from Calvin Klein – sleeping shorts and ribbed vests and the like – but mostly it’s fleeces and weird onesies and plastic clogs.
Until last month, that is, when I popped in to buy my usual 10kg tub of Basmati rice (£6!) and saw a whole shipment of Adidas hoodies and trackpants… I’m a sucker for Adidas, I just love the stripes. When I was growing up, all of the teenagers had Adidas tops and I was never allowed one. Mum called them “Market Stall” tops! Anyhoo, now I’m all grown up and I can wear what I choose, I absolutely adore buying Adidas. The tackier the better, which is why this grey number with hot pink detailing appealed to me so much! I may have to even do some kind of makeup look based around these colours – what a combo! My Mum will have an absolute conniption fit next time she comes to visit – I might even try to find some matching bottoms. (Incidentally, I forced Mr AMR to buy some grey marl bottoms with black go-faster stripes: he doesn’t look convinced..)
I think this top was £22.95, I’ll have to check with Mr AMR, who is the Costco Card Holder and looks after all of the receipts. Look out for the Market Stall Makeup Tutorial!
