Some women love to go shopping for clothes. Not me. Lately clothes shopping has become about as fun as watching one of Zero's press conferences. I'm 5. 2 and weigh around 119. I should have few problems finding clothes. If I were a girly-girl who liked low cut-shirts, ruffles, bows, and pink things-that would be true. It would also be true if I wanted to dress 'old'-or if I wore a size 16.
Instead I'm a 41 year old tomboy who loathes girly things. I like 'classic'. I wear jeans and khakis and prefer shirts with collars and long sleeves in earth girl tones.
Unfortunately-what passes for 'fashion' as of late is everything BUT weird girl friendly.
I was at Kohl's today trying to add to my black/navy tee shirts/khakis/jeans wardrobe.
The misses/petites section was awash in skin-tight(or see through) tees with plunging necklines, things with frills and bows, shirts that were supposed to be stylish but that looked like the maternity tops I didn't wear when I was pregnant. There were jeans that would practically fall off the wearer(so why wear them?) and jeans to slim a person. There was all this 'stuff'-and though I did try a few things on-none of it suited me. I did find a 'Big Bang Theory' tee in the guys section-I like guys tees-but it was in red. Red isn't a good color on me.
Two hours after I entered the store I dejectedly left w/ a pair of slightly quirky brown slip-ons.
I'm about ready to just stick w/ my navy work tees and frayed jeans rather than having to search through a store that doesn't carry attire for weird girls.
Are the problems I encountered today unique to me-or are they something other weird girls have had to deal with?
