I'll admit, I love to clothes shop. I've always liked it and no matter what my size, I could always find something that I think looks good on me. Normally I'd have to go to the store and try things on, and I still have to try certain items on, but we're in the height of clearance season and today I got emails from a couple of different stores telling me about their super-clearance sales. Who can pass up up to 75% off?
Normally I don't online shop for clothes. This morning the deals were too good to pass up. I bought everything in the next size down from what I have in my closet and only the things that will be in season soon. I got several new shirts and a new skirt for less than some people pay for one pair of pants.
I think that this is the best way to gain a new wardrobe! I love clearance! Everything I bought was a Large, no X's. That is the breaking point for prices. That darn X adds a dollar or two to any price. I like being in the cheaper sizes. It's so much easier on the wallet to be in a size that has no X's.
I only hope that those clothes look as good on me as they did on the models. These clothes looked good on them, I won't buy clothes that make the model look ugly, and I've seen some clothes that do exactly that. I'm not sure if the designers even care about big people to make so much of it ugly, no wonder it's a struggle to find cute clothes when you're plus sized.
Online shopping makes it way too easy to spend money. I hope I made a great purchase! It better have been as I need some new clothes for the upcoming season. That is part of the problem with shrinking, nothing fits anymore... but it gives me an excuse to shop!
