Well ladies. I am blue. I just don't know where to start.
First, let me update you on my clothing situation. I am doing good with tops. I have purchased probably 7-8 new tops over the last couple of weeks, both for work and for home. But I am having such a time finding bottoms for either work or home. Do you know how Lane Bryant has "right fit pants" now, you are either blue, yellow, or red. Well I am red, meaning my pants usually gap in the waist but fit in the thigh. Lane Bryant are the only slacks I wear because not only do I need the right fit, I am short and need petite. I am now in a 4 petite red. All I wear is black because stupid Lane Bryant doesnt make the right fit houston slacks in a colors...except online, and for the last 6 months they have only had colors in like size 9. Whatever. With that said, although I love LB slacks in the right size...I pretty much am beginning to loathe them.
Our local store is managed by this older blonde hair lady that is like a size 4. WHAT? Makes no sense. She has a horrible attitude and the worst customer service. They lose my money all the time. Once, I went in a dressing room and set on the padded stool/chair thing and a nail was sticking up and went right into my butt! It made me bleed. I went and told stupid lady and she didnt even apologize. The next time I went in the store, I went and checked...the damn thing was still there.
I emailed corporate.
Many moons ago when I worked at LB I rocked. I love helping people shop. I would bring you things to the dressing room, get your size for you...none of that at this store. And while the slacks fit, nothing else really does. I swear their clothes are made for people who are 5'8". There dresses are always to billowy and shapeless...
I need a strapless bra. Have you guys noticed how all the cute tops this summer have little straps or weird straps. Well, I am in a size 40DDD. And guess what?! The strapless bras at LB only go to DD. WHAT! So I tried a 40DD on and it was okay...but sorta gave me pancake boobs. And who wants flapjacks for titties? Not me. I was ripe melons.
So, I got nothing at LB. I went to Dillards bc Mary told me their womens section was having a sale. I didnt even know they had a women's section. I got 2 tops, but nothing great. It is sort of an odd clothing section at dillards bc the shape of a lot of their plus sized clothing is billowy and for the geriatric generation, but not the print on them. Very odd. I don't know who their audience is.
I did however walk through the purse section. Listen. This is serious now. I love purses. Do you know?
Bc purses fit no matter how big your butt is.
Back in the day when I used to have credit cards, Hold me back Mary Kate and Ashley...I would tear up the purse section at Dillards. Now that I pay cash for everything, I am resigned to shopping for purses at Target or TJMAXX. The most I have ever paid for a purse was probably $130...which really isn't a lot. And for those of you who say there is no difference in $10 purse from Walmart and a designer purse....you have never owned a designer purse. There is a difference. OH the material, the stitching, the smell, the feel. I walked through the purse section today and my body has a physical reaction...I get goosebumps and tingle...nippies get hard. (does this happen to you)...I make soft noises and blow kisses at the fine hand bags. I love them. I miss them....someday we shall be together again.
The point of this long winded story? No pants for Amy. I also need some Bermuda length black shorts. Anything shorter on me, my crotch tries to eat them when I walk.
On the plus side (ahahahaha...that's a pun and I didnt even mean it to be), I have lost the weight from the weekend and I am doing well.
This weekend we are going to hang some drywall...I will save the state of our house for another post.
Tracey's 25th hs reunion is finally next week!
