Shopping - Ugh

Note to self: do not ever, ever again go bathing suit shopping when TOM is visiting. It will make you feel like you have gained back every pound that you have lost, and then some.

Ugh.

I finally found one that did not make me completely nauseated, but it was not easy.

I was also looking for a dress for my upcoming cruise and Chicago. Epic fail. Why is everything sleeveless? I tried Ross, Marshall's, Kohl's, Steinmart, Target, and a few others. I almost bought a dress that was just meh - but I decided it was frumpy (see pic).



On top of it, I walked out of Steinmart and my car wouldn't start. Dead battery. Scott had to come rescue me.

Sorry to sound all negative. Just needed to vent. And if anyone wants to send me some good vibes for dress shopping, I'm going to try again next weekend.

Maybe it was just a bad day to shop. Try again next weekend. Have you tried Cato or Dillards for dresses? I have found a few things in those stores. Good luck!

ugh i hate sleeveless too! but this is what i do, i just buy some thin light cover up type sweaters. the ones that only go as far as your boobs or above your waist. just something to cover the arms. i got some cute short sleeve ones at old navy. i get them in lots of colors so i can wear then with just about anything.

that way you're not limited to only getting things with sleeves.

here's a link to the ones i got http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=60783&vid=1&pid=809566&scid=809566052

I was just going to suggest an Old Navy visit myself. It's my go to when all other stores fail to produce something. When I go dress shopping nowadays I make sure that I have on a good bra, my Spanx or some control top something or other, and I do my hair and throw on a little make-up. For some reason it makes a huge difference in how I feel when I try things on. I hate shopping. I especially hate shopping when I actually need something vs. just wanting something. I get easily frustrated. Good luck and let us know if you have better luck next round.

I always have the best time at Ross when I'm shopping for dresses. I swear every time I go, I come out with at least 2 or 6. :) The ones in my area have good selections at every size.

I hate shopping but do love that dress !

I hate days like that, no doubt it was just the ol' TOM playing tricks on your mind. :)
