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. :(

    Another option would be a nice flowy pant suit. I'm not a huge fan of dresses as I HATE my knees. So I usually opt for something like palazzo pants and a nice fitted shirt. Something to think about.

    I am so sorry! Hope you have better luck tonight. What a pain it is to find that the store racks are full of clothing that doesn't even look so hot on the hangers much less on real women. Our local JCP store tends to stock real women's clothing so I have become a frequent shopper there but when I have stopped into their stores elsewhere I couldn't find a thing that I would even take into the fitting room! BTW...I admit I haven't been paying attention to all my friends exploits this summer and seeing your background photo tells me I have missed a lot!! WOO HOO!

    Big hugs! I know how frustrating that is. Good luck on your search - remember, keep saying to yourself that there isn't anything wrong with you, there's something wrong with the clothes.

    Ooh! I hope you have a Dress Barn near you. They always have really nice dresses, though they're sometimes a little more business oriented than dressy. Good luck on the search. I HATE shopping, personally!

    Oh no! I am sorry you had a bad shopping day. That is because I'm not there to shop with you. Have you tried places like Marhsalls and TJ Maxx? They sometimes have good stuff but you really have to look and I don't know if you want to! Also, you could try David's Bridal too. They have some nice things and you can buy the floor model if they have your size! I know you will look fabulous in whatever you find!
