As always, your timing is impeccable! Yesterday I went out to buy clothes. Not to browse - to buy. I *needed* to shop. I don't do this very often, but I set out with all my major credit and department store cards handy (in case they were offering specials if you use them) and I set out to spend!

Nothing looked good on me. Nothing. Nada. Yuck, yuck. Not just jeans, though. Everything. Let me vent a moment here (yeah, like I haven't started already) - those of us who are not only dealing with tummy issues, but those of us who are ::cough, cough:: not 20 years old anymore, have to choose between "Look like a grandmother" or "Look like a floozy." Can't stand it.

Grumble, grumble.

Let's all demand clothes THAT FIT and clothes that are a little bit stylish. Is that too much to ask for?

Rant over.
Great post!


I'm another one with a terrible time shopping. I used to love to shop. Then, the "perfect storm" of menopause and high dose steroids left me with an oversized pot belly that I can't get rid of. Try to shop for that.

So, I live in stretchy waistband, bootcut yoga pants with tunics or men's tees. Thank goodness I don't have to fit someone's idea of a dress code.
