For me however, I would rather boil my head in battery acid, while being clubbed to death by wild skunks …. OK so that doesn’t quite cut it, but you the gist right??
I have never seen the appeal with squeezing myself into a cubicle the size of a phone box in the hopes I wont show my pants to the passing ladies, the look was fantastic *cough cough* on Superman …. it is never going to look good on me! Having said that I would much rather that than the dreaded communal changing room, it didn’t do it for me as a teen and now I am 8 times the size I was then … the prospect is far less appealing.
I have always felt dreadful when it comes to clothes shopping, I’m not sure why as I have not always been this big, however having short legs has never helped matters either?! …. See even thinking of shopping means I come out in a negativity overload about myself … why, oh why does it make me feel this way?
This week I forced myself out my comfort zone and with the prospect of attending Britmums Live in my jogging bottoms as the weight gain from giving up smoking had stripped me of my normal wardrobe … I really had to get a move on and buy a new outfit to go!
So with some last-minute hiccups with work rotas and me having to change the day my clothing guru friend was not available and instead I took to Meadowhall with Hubster and the Toddler! ….. it really wasn’t a good mix for clothes shopping was it!
We had a super time checking out some fun stores and looking at ipads, Crocs and and even visiting Frankie and Bennys but when it came to the actual clothes shopping I have to say it was all really dismal!
After 6 hours I came back with a top that was ‘OK’ but secretly I fear it was bought out of panic at not having anything at all, and a pair of really nice jeans, however they need 3 inches lopping of the leg! ….
In complete dismay when I got home I took to the trust online shopping site and not only secured me 3 lovely tops to choose from but 2 new bras and smiley face to boot!
So there you have it …
I am not designed to go clothes shopping, I am an online shopper and that’s the way it will stay!
