I fucking hate shopping for clothes, though I still do it way too often. I have to get a new outfit every time I go away. Something new to wear makes me feel a little better about myself. The problem? There are so few places to go and try stuff on for plus sized girls.
We have Macy’s plus, which is OK if you can dig through the old lady clothes and the way-too young for me clothes. We have one Lane Bryant around here, but they are out of 18s in almost everything all the time. We had 2 Avenues, but one closed, leaving the crappy one with really nasty salespeople. Target has some cute stuff once in a while.
That’s it. There is no other place within 30 minutes to shop for cute plus-sized clothes. These stores are in 3 totally opposite directions. So it’s not like I can just go to the mall and pick stuff out. I have to drive around town to hit the stores that have very little to choose from.
There are a ton of places to shop online. But I know myself, I’m not a returner. So if I order something online that doesn’t fit, it will go in the back of my closet in a ball never to be heard from again.
This weekend, I’m going away with my perfect, gorgeous, skinny, mom and sisters. I have nothing to wear because I am at my fattest ever and everything looks gross on me. I need to run out RIGHT NOW to shop, but I’m procrastinating, because I don’t feel like spiraling into a depression because I can’t find anything.
But I have to. Wish me luck!
