I Want To Shop At The 'Minus Size' Store!

I hate clothes shopping...

okay, I'll take back "hate" (I tell the kids all the time, "you shouldn't 'hate' anything")

I DISLIKE IMMENSELY clothes shopping...too subtle?...

Last night Mark drove me into town to go to the mall, because I had a coupon for $50 off at a specialty store ('specialty' being code for 'plus size') (another reason to DISLIKE IMMENSELY clothes shopping, my clothes being labeled 'plus size'...but anyway, I digress....)

So my wonderful husband drove me to the mall and waited patiently outside the 'specialty store' while I circled the inside of the store like a 747 flying above the airport, waiting to land...

I couldn't find anything...the clearance stuff had been pilfered through, and all that was left were a few black (the official color for the 'plus size' of America) blazers from 1988, some scoop neck long sleeve shirts (scooped way too low) and some kind of black and white sweater that had a huge flower across the chest (just what every 'plus size' woman needs)

I managed to find a couple of things and then had to go into the dressing room with it Fun House mirror (which just engages my
"That'sNotReallyMeIsIt?-itis") I then spent the next 17 minutes trying on clothes that I went ahead and bought anyway but still ain't too thrilled about...

But the one, lone, bright spot in all this is the knowledge that I'm not in this boat alone...women all across our land go through this trauma each and every day. Most just aren't crazy enough to write about it...

I think I'll go put on the pink duster...one size fits all... :)

I just love you to pieces with all your candid honesty! I loathe clothes shopping as well but my reason is that I am such a tacky dresser and have no sense of style! I get completely overwelmed and loathe todays styles, everythings clinger where it doesn't need to cling! For me, it's back to my gray sweats!
