My hubby is forcing me to shop for clothes.
I don't wanna!
I hate shopping. I've always wanted a wardrobe faerie who would wave her wand and I would have the appropriate clothes in the right size.
But I must confess that he's -- I really HATE to have to admit this -- but he's RIGHT!
Even the jeans I bought recently are falling off after about an hour of wearing!
My weight hasn't changed in the last few weeks, but I suspect everything is shifting around a little bit. Shoot, I'm wearing a size six and I'm not even in the weight range for my height!
Last night, after a Tex-Mex dinner at Los Cabos (I took home 2/3 of my my meal), we stopped at the Bass Pro Shop to look for shorts as I had donated all my shorts a couple of months ago, but kept one pair that I held up with a LARGE binder clip. I ended up buying two pairs of ladies (6) shorts and one pair of men's (30) shorts.
So now I have shorts to wear when I go walking. Next week, it's supposed to be in the 80's!
What's that? Why do I wear MEN'S shorts?
Because of the pockets, my friends. Women's shorts have shallow pockets, if they even have pockets!
Eleven years ago when I started carting around a diaper bag, I refused to carry a purse, diaper bag AND infant. I got rid of the purse, and it was a very nice purse--Coach. In fact, you can't find this one any more (I just looked!). I'll have to take a picture of it. Anyhoo, I bought a small wallet, thinned down my keys to one fob and one house key, and a phone. Until recently, I had a very small phone, but these new Androids are huge in comparison.
And that is the reason for my pocket requirement for shorts.
But the clothes I need aren't things I can find at Wal-Mart, Target or the Bass Pro shop. Nope, I need dress slacks, at least one or two dresses, new shirts and lingerie.
I have a feeling trips to Macy's, Kohl's, Ann Taylor, Coldwater Creek, Chico's and Victoria's Secrets is in my future.
I hate shopping. . . EXCEPT shoes. I LOVE to wear stilettos, but I don't buy new shoes unless I need a pair for a new outfit.
Hey! I like that idea. I'll suffer through the clothes shopping of a couple of pairs of shoes!
