Dressing Room Dilemmas

I have slowly been working on beefing up my seriously lacking wardrobe.  I had to toss 3 shirts this week alone (holes and I have enough junky shits).  Shopping is less fun and more frustrating and tiring than I thought it would be. 

I went to Wal-Mart with the toddler in tow.  I know – not the best situation to clothes shop especially since I now have to try everything on.  I picked up some shirts and capris in 12 and 14. I had to force myself to not go to the Women’s (plus) section even though I saw some cute shirts.  Shopping the the “regular” section felt foreign to me.  Like I was entering a forbidden zone.

The 12’s all zipped up and buttoned.  Some were a bit tight so I didn’t buy them.  The shirts were Large but it feel foreign to me to have such fitting shirts.  I might go back and get the XL’s.  I am also not used to the girls and the girls points being so visible.  I have to get used to it I guess.

I tired Old Navy last night.  A bunch of Large shirts.  They fit but again too snug.  I might upsize but it is frustrating to see so little progress in the size department.  I didn’t buy anything but I will go back and spend more time at Old Navy.

  1. It's hard to get passed the mental part in the changing room. Very difficult. I'm very happy (and proud) that you're in 12s. That's wonderful!
