What was I thinking? You know you always need at least one girlfriend with you!
Anyway, I'm in the store looking around and found several really cute tops to try on.
In the dressing room I put the first one on. Ok it's cute, but I look pregnant! Been there. Done that. I don't really want to look like I'm pregnant, especially if I'm NOT!
Second item. Again very cute. On.The.Hanger.
But on me? It looks like a 40 something trying to look 20 something. ugh!
The next one is too tight. I check the size. Yep it's my size. It's really cute. So do I try the next size up? No! Nada! Nine!That would be NO in three languages. If I can't wear my size I'm not buying it, no matter how cute it is!!
I leave the dressing room. The lady outside asked me "so how did everything fit?" I wanted to say "the first made me look majorly pregnant, the second made me feel OLD, and the last one made me feel overweight!!" But I said, "they didn't, but thank you." And I wanted to add "could you point me to the over 40 section?" But again wisdom told me she just might not understand.
Lesson Learned: Do not shop alone!! You need someone to help you laugh when things like this happens!!
