Clothes Shopping Is Not My Idea of Fun

I am in need of new clothes since I discovered that many of my shirts have some form of permanent stain…since I realized that I don’t fit in to any long-sleeved shirts…since I hate what is left iny wardrobe. So, I have thought about a trip to buy clothes. Thought about it, dreaded it, contemplated it.
Today was the day… As I left the health club…that is twice this week for those that are counting…I pointed my car in the direction of Kohl’s. I planned on looking, but not committing to anything. Didn’t want to be too hasty, now.
After a couple of quick stops, I made it to Kohl’s. Once in the store, I headed to MY department, and by “my” I mean the department I am left with no choice, but to shop at, since I had 3 pregnancies with no morning sickness. So, I browsed through the racks, rooted through the sale items, frowned at the hideousness of anything with sequins or rhinestones, and was about to give up when I spotted a blouse, not covered in flair. Then, I found three passable T-shirts, one long sleeved.

No, this isn’t the shirt I purchased,
but it is representative of fugliness I saw.
I was just sorting through my purchases when I spotted a lady in her 70s buying the same T-shirts. Lord help me. All I could do was purchase my garments and leave. What a buzz kill!

    Way to GO! You go to a health club? You braved the clothing store? I am sad about two things! First, I like that shirt you hated : ( and Secondly, I have had 0 pregnancies and I am FAT anyway! Love the post! I think the lady in her seventies was probably buying clothes for her way cool Daughter in Law. Really! Trust me : )!

    I, like you, hate clothes shopping. Especially for tops since my breasts are so huge. No top fits me well. Congrats on going to the health club twice this week…great job!

    Oh yes, clothes shopping is such a humbling experience these days. Did I enjoy it once? Probably. I can’t remember back that far.

    Congratulations on finding something non-sequined! A real coup in this day and age.
