I am going to attempt to do a little shopping this weekend... I need a new pair of black jeans.. a couple shirts.. and well I am going to stay away from dresses.. I simply do not do dresses yet.. could be because I have legs that resemble white tree trunks.. dunno..... no dresses for now.. except my wedding dress.. who apparently has been garning a lot of visitors lately and has a huge fan base... ( dress has been viewed by friends coming over to the house.. with out my knowledge.. ) that makes me secretly ( okay I guess it is not a secret anymore since I am sharing it with you) very excited and happy.. I will post a few pictures from the wedding for sure.. most of them will be on our wedding site when the time comes..

I hate shopping.. yes call me a freak of nature... but I am probably the one single woman out there that simply dreads shopping.. every now and then I get a twinkle in my body and a little glint that I enjoy it .. but those times are very rare.. I simply lack patience to look through racks of clothes that are either too expensive or won't fit... I end up feeling dejected and silly.. because I hope when I pick something that it will fit and I can get it.. Yes clothes fit better and are smaller but here is the rub... I LIVE IN CLOTHES PERGATORY .. here is why .. my butt is plus size still and my top is Large and Xtra Large... So finding things to match and finding sizes that work is so hard.. half the time I can not find anything in the larger size departments and stores because .. get this I am too small.. or they do not carrry a lot of choices for someone who rides the fence.. in the average sizes.. its a gamble sometimes I can find stuff sometimes not...
I would really like to look nice for my wedding weekend.. I will be meeting a lot of Steve's family I haven't met yet and even though I am 50 pounds over weight.. I still want to look attractive and feel attractive. You know.. yeah I know its a little vain.. but the reality is.. I am what I am right now.. not much will change between now and my wedding weekend less than a month away as of today.. but at least I know I have changed so much since last year at this time.. Things are so much better .. my eating is so much more on target.. so all of this is good..
Wish me luck finding clothes tomorrow..
Wish you well too...

I'm not a fan of shopping either, I don't have patience....especially with other customers and stupid sales clerk. The older I get the more crowds of people bother me. (I'm only 24 btw, lol!)

Sooo it was easier to shop for clothe online, but...

I love shopping, though not necessarily *clothes shopping*...

It's a pain finding stuff that fits you well.

I guess that's why I have a fetish for handbags. At least ALL handbags FIT, LOL.

Good luck with your shopping excursion tomorrow. Let us know how you get on :-D

I can't wait to see the wedding pictures, you are going to be soooo stunning!!

I'm so far away from clothes shopping, I have lots that I need to fit back into before I can think about new stuff. I did see a very cool site the other day called They only go up to size 24 it seems but you put in your body type and measurements and it picks clothes for you based on your shape and measurements. I created a free account just to see what they would recommend for my shape and based on what they showed me, they are clothes I'd like. You should check it out when you have some free time.

I'm with you - I can't stand clothes shopping. I always come home depressed. Shopping reminds me that I could be thinner - if that makes any sense. Shoe shopping is another story. Doesn't matter how much you weigh and a new pair of shoes makes me feel like a million bucks.

I also can't wait to see the wedding pictures!! I probably missed it somewhere but when is the big day??

Wow I know exactly where that's at!! It sucks too!! Been there! Then gained weight so I could find clothes, lol. Silly huh!? I should have lost to find clothes, hee. I'm so feeling your misery about the clothes shopping hell. Very bleh!

Secretly I have been excited for you about the wedding! So! CONGRATULATIONS!!! Eeeek! Ok, I'll calm down now...

Good luck with all the clothes shopping! And the wedding plans too! :D

I feel your pain. I really love to shop, but do have a hard time finding stuff that fits me right that is actually a style I would like to wear. I am only 5'2 so I can never seem to find pants that are short enough so I can imagine you have an even harder time.
