Online shopping

Friday, March 15, 2013

Online shopping is making me crazy, and not only because there are so many gorgeous things out there to buy!

I don't have a clear vision of what I would like "my look" to look like. Obviously, comparing my wardrobe to those of others makes no sense as I don't have the same shops, lifestyle or resources as they do, but I often find myself in situations where I do not feel comfortable in the clothes I am wearing in the moment.

I feel like a lot of these happen when I am wearing blue jeans... I don't know what to do about that? Throw away my jeans? Wear more skirts? Get more casual black pants? Jeans are very comfortable, and when one is not too confident in oneself, comfort can make things easier to bear, I think. Would the ultimate solution be to lose some weight? Now it just sounds like I have a terrible body image.

I have to think about this... Its not just about the blue jeans though, its that my wardrobe is scattered and not cohesive at all. I suppose that's ok because no one person has just ONE style every day... Maybe constructing an "inspiration board" isn't such a bad idea?

Anyways, I'll be going through my clothes soon to see if anything really sticks out like a sore thumb. Maybe I'll find some clothes that were too tight 5 lbs ago and are now wearable? Here's hoping!

    My general rule of thumb when it comes to my clothing options is -if it fits and I am comfortable and everything sort of matches (I tend to go with solid colors and avoid disfunction prints or patterns) then that is what makes me happiest.
While I am loosing weight and tightening up my body I have found that nice fitting clothes do help me feel better about the work I am accomplishing and don't challenge my self-image too much in a negative way.
I hope you find some super values in the closet, they are always great rewards, more so if you were in a store and found a great outfit because this is something you have already selected (so you liked it) and being able to get into it again with comfort and ease is a find worth taking note of.

    I"ve got loads of jeans and henley's and other pull over shirts....also some nicer slacks...but still casual....don't have any dress slacks at this time and think I've got enough to worry about with what I've got... I'll wait and see what the summer brings on QVC...who knows what might be next?? I just got down to a 1X from a 2X and I figure it will take a bit of time for me to get into anything smaller, so I'll be patient and wait till summer.
