Oh man Jamie...that's rough!!!!

Though, if it's any consolation, I can say I've been there before: http://www.anopensketchbook.com/2010/03/trying-out-as-tammy-faye.html

Here's to NOT being perfect....I think there is something to it :)

That sucks! I seriously laughed out loud because that is something that would totally happen to me. Hope your day gets better! xoxo

Right. You didn't notice that when you took it off the hanger nor when you put it on? Or when you got in your car on the way to see said client earlier in the day?

Kelly@TearingUpHouses said...

You totally can't even tell. I'm sure no one even noticed.

Okay, that's a lie.

If it makes you feel better I walk around with my fly down the other day. I know, that doesn't really help...

you're right. i noticed. still put it on. it was all a huge stunt. but SO WORTH IT.

Jessica O'Brien said...

ha! maybe they thought it was some unique accessorizing! ;)

I'm a firm believer in letting people know these types of things (lipstick on the teeth, booger hanging out the nose, butt hanging out with dress tucked in pantyhose, etc, etc), because I would want someone to tell me.

That being said, anytime something happens, it always makes for a good 'ol embarrassing story ;)

One time, I looked down and realized I had been wearing a half-eaten chicken nugget in my very cute scarf all day. I blamed it on pregnancy.

Does that make you feel better? :)

at least your dry cleaner takes measures to protect your buttons. all i ever get are broken buttons and stains that weren't there before i dropped off my stuff. last week there was a burn mark from the steamer. usually it's dust kitties that are ironed onto the tail of my hub's shirts.

I know it probably isn't funny to you. but this made me laugh out loud. In a few days I think it will make you LOL as well!

freakin' hilarious!

I couldn't figure out what it was! (My dry cleaner never goes to such trouble.) I was wondering if this was a thrifty way to make the buttons look shiny?? :/ Make gold buttons match with the silver jewelry you wanted to wear?

Everyone's had a day like that. In fifth grade my mom dropped me off at the local library for Reading Club dressed as Marie Antoinette. (We had just read biographies and came dressed in character.) Except the club was Thursday, not Tuesday. Try spending an hour hiding in the stacks dressed like Marie Antoinette. Awesome.

i love this...for lots of reasons. 1. people always bring things back to me, after they've worn them with the foil still on
2. women will barge in to the store and cut in line and lay their dress on the table and throw (this is not a joke) buttons down and get pissy "THESE are what my buttons are supposed to look like...not this!!! why did you..."and before they can finish i nicely start removing the foil and they feel really stupid.
3....we usually try to take the foil off before giving the item back.

I must say....I've had some serious clothing snafus but none like the one recently when in a flooring store. I approached the one and only sales person in the entire place and he looked frightened as I grew closer. Then as I started explaining what I was looking for he quickly led me to their showroom and left.

This room was on the 2nd floor of the store and I spent about 30 minutes gathering samples before heading back down to the main floor. As I was preparing to go down the steps, I looked down to get my footing and no lie....my top was unbuttoned all the way down to my belt.

I had on a little jacket with a button down, stretchy shirt under and all I can think of is that when I reached back to unbuckle by daughter from her car seat, the buttons must have popped open...I SWEAR I fully dressed myself before leaving the house.....maybe this was a clue the shirt was a little too tight. All I could do was laugh.

i think its hilarious! and even more hilarious that you post about your AIRBALL moments..you are refreshing!

Janet said...

I thought you were wearing Heshey's Kisses for buttons, and you just got hungry.

littleshop said...

Awesome.

Paris Hotel Boutique said...

Hilarious...I know embarrassing...but great for us. At first I thought they were silver buttons. OMG! Think how many of us have walked out of a restroom with toilet paper hanging out of our pants and no one told us? Now that's bad!

Rene @ cottage and vine said...

I once reached for my everyday lip color and quickly put it on while driving down the road. You know, the kind that you don't have to look into the mirror to apply. When I got home, I realized that it was a bright red and all out of line....after making every.stop.in.town.

Laura said...

You must go to some fancy pants dry cleaner Jamie! ;)

You are not alone in your embarrassment. Yesterday, I walked face first into the top half of a dutch door at work while trying to "discreetly" walk past a meeting happening in the next room. Everyone saw. All I could do was laugh!

I thought they were condoms.

Hazel Martin Designs said...

I was in a shop that I sell to, in the winter thankfully, but I looked down while talking to the owner and I still had my pajama top on! GEEZ! I feel for ya!

kayce hughes said...

My dry cleaner doesn't do that. Which is probably for the best. I would be walking around like that for days.
