I hate shopping... almost all kinds of shopping... but most particularly clothes shopping. UGH!
Being overweight is not the reason. I hated clothes shopping when I was twenty years old and weighed 125 lbs.
I just don't like anything about clothes shopping. I groan at the thought. My back stiffens when I walk into the store. I cringe when a clerk approaches. The other shoppers annoy me. The styles and colors offend me. The racks are too close together. If I make it to the dressing room I feel trapped. By the time I've tried a couple of things on, indecision sets in.
Sometimes I actually buy something. Often I love it so much that it becomes my "uniform" and I wear it to death and wish I'd bought several more while I was at it. Of course I didn't know this at the time and when I go back they no longer have the item.
My pants are saggy, my blouses blouse too much, my jackets are roomy.
I have to go shopping and I have nothing to wear to go shopping in.
