Well it had been 3 years since my last shopping trip and I have to tell you it didn’t get any easier. I’m still tall. I’m still built awkwardly, the only difference is I’m 18lbs lighter. And that part didn’t make shopping for clothes any easier. *sigh*
But some of you have been asking about “the trip” so I’m going to give it to you straight.
We started out at Ross’ (in which I found nadda) and then ventured over to the Mall (not a mall fan!). We moseyed into JcPenney’s where there were so many WONDERFUL outfits to choose from I just couldn’t make up my mind. (Insert extreme sarcasm here)
I think this one was my personal fave as seen by the expression on my face, not to mention my body language.
Feeling my frustration my BFF quickly decided it was time to try another store. So we headed our way towards Dillard’s.
I walked in and was immediately overwhelmed with there set up. It makes no sense. I couldn’t tell where anything was and I was really starting to get a little crazy. So what does one do when one starts to get a little crazy? They make their way over to the evening gowns with their best friend and try a few on. Please excuse the poor photos as it was a poorly lit dressing room.
Here you have the bobsy twins!
Okay, hubbies, we’re ready for that cruise now. LOL!
I’ll settle for a black tie affair though. I seriously fell in love with this dress. It fit me perfectly and if I was actually looking for a dress like this and not regular clothing, my shopping trip would have ended right here.
I seriously expected a hair and make up team to come rushing to my side at any given moment.
Well the fun eventually had to end because I hadn’t bought one single thing yet and it had already been about 3 hours since we started. But I couldn’t leave without showing you these winning outfits we saw on our way out.
We hit a few more places with no luck. Then we saw this little shop in a strip mall and decided to stop in. It’s called Maurice’s and they had pretty cute clothes. I ended up buying a couple of shirts. This is one of them. Look they even knew I was coming and put my name on my dressing room door.
We ended our shopping trip by going to Target and surprisingly I was able to find a pair of shorts and a pair of capris and two tank tops there. Which pretty much ended my shopping trip because I was spent and so was my BFF.
So sadly this is all I achieved in a total of about 7 hours of shopping, minus lunch at Jason’s Deli.
1 pair of shorts
1 pair of capris
2 cute tank tops
2 cute nicer tops
Is it me or is it the stores? Why do I have such a hard time? Do you have a hard time?
Well until next time. If there is a next time. I think I’ll just stick to finding those gems at the thrift stores and garage sales.
Have a FANTABULOUS day my sweet friends.
