Non successful shopping trip
Thursday, September 15, 2011
How many times must I put myself through the hell of shopping unhappy with my body?
It does not matter how big or thin we are finding peace with ourselves is not always attainable when we look in the mirror.
I have a huge fancy wedding to go to on Saturday. Last Saturday was the first day that I looked for a dress. Nothing. Monday I was still beat from the tri and opted to wait till Tuesday to look for a dress. Nothing. The new styles are these banded dresses which suck you in like a sausage. I already have Kankles, I do not want to emphasize them. and I want to be able to move and enjoy myself. Not good. While I am at Macy's, the associate comes over to me to help. I explained how I am normally a 16 but the dresses run small so there are only 18's to choose from and the styles are not flattering at all. Everything is above the knee and youngish. So she brings me to the computer. Ok, tues night. Will the dress be in by Friday? I am leaving on Friday. Yes, we have express delivery. Oh, I found the dress. So I order it from my own couch that evening.
Deep breath in deep breath out. I order it at night on tuesday, it takes 24 hours for them to process it. My dress will now arive on Friday, when I am not here.
Looks like I will be going shopping tonight when I am out of work. Tonight, I go to a bigger mall and hopefully find something fancy enough to wear to this shindig. Procrastination is not my friend. At least right now for me. :(
