Speed Shopping

Today was try on clothes day.
 I did.
(upcoming trip to warm Arizona)
Nothing fit.
And, I mean
 NOTHING.
After a good cry,
I decided that I need to shop.
If bigger is better,
 than new clothes it will be.
I only have one day to do this.
(tomorrow is booked)
On Monday think of me
doing a speed shopping event.
(I feel better typing this out.)
I thought I might not fit a few things.
Not every cute dress I own.
The one that did fit made me look like a box.
I know I am one but
 if I didn't like what I looked like
why would I make the peoples in Arizona.
I cried up in the closet.
I came downstairs and cried in my cola.
I cried big tears on the deck.
Telling Mr. Boatman that I was
an old fat lady.
He thought I said that I was an
old cat lady.
 Which I am but seriously.
Now, to find five cute outfits in one day.
I can do this don't you think ...

Oh, I do hate clothes shopping, because I'm such a short, chubby pear-shape that it's hard to find anything suitable.

Good luck!

Go for a few neutral bottoms that you can mix and match and brighten up with colourful tops and/or accessories. :-)

I, too, hate clothes shopping. It is why I get most things from the Land's End catalog. If I wore dresses, they even sell those, but mostly casual clothing. If you're going to a Nordstom or J.C.Penney or Macy I suggest getting a sales clerk and hang on to her, find your size and stay in the dressing room and have her do the taking out of the don't-wants and bringing in of some more to try. You will get things that go together and dresses you might not have chosen for yourself but find that you like. Mosst of all, enjoy it for what it is, a necessary evil. (j/k, LOL)

Good luck!

Thank you for your purrs for Mickey.

a while to get used to him not being here.

Ahhhhh I feel your pain!!!
Get out there and buy yourself some cute stuff. Just because some of us are bigger doesn't mean we cant still be stylish.
GET YOURSELF SOME PURPLE BOOTS GIRL!!!

we know what you mean and always shop online if we can but even that can be a huge disappointment. Mrs H wishes she was good enough to creater her own clothes. Love Darcy, Bingley and Helen xxx

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
