A Brand- Spankin' New Problem to have

Friday, August 09, 2013


I can't stop!!!

I've never been a "shopper!" I've always been a "wear the same thing every day (tshirt and jeans)" kinda gal! But now I'm a size small. Sometimes extra-small. All of these items are ALWAYS on sale!!!
What am I supposed to do with all of these clothes? I barely have a life! I don't go out enough to have so many options to choose from. And I don't have anyone to impress!!! But it's fun, I guess... so maybe that's reason enough??!!!

I took my girls school shopping today and I can't believe how much I adore the Forever 21 store at the Mall!!! Why didn't they have that store when I was a teenager! I'm going to have fun living vicariously through them! (and also indulging a bit on my own:-)

(I had to cut the head off cause I had no make up on and looked awful... LOL!). But look how cute that little dress is!!! And I can totally rock it, even though it's for a teeny bopper! And only $13!!

Here's a jean skirt I got for $9... really cute and comfy and size Small


I have all my meals packed for work this weekend. I'll post a food blog some time soon.

Have a great weekend!!

    lol, I have been having this same problem, so excited to look good in clothes it makes me want to buy everything I try on. My husband pointed out that I have more summer clothes than I can wear and with any luck they won't even fit this time next year. I guess there are much worse problems to have right? I can remember hating shopping for clothes and crying in try on rooms

    You look great! And in that picture it doesn't look like you have any loose skin, so I'm jealous haha. I now *love* going shopping as well. Love it.

    You look amazing, I'm so happy for you!

Look at those legs! I'm so jealous, I have saggy skin on my knees. I can't wear dresses, skirts or shorts.

Me too! We have the exact same problem... I have 2 closets full of awesome clothes, but nowhere to go. I'm such a bookworm/home-body. But I always look good going to the grocery store, LOL!

    Shopping can be fun, especially after reaching goal... But.... Everything in moderation, right?

You may want to consider this...(I used to have somewhat of a shopping addiction)

Does it give you a rush? Is it something you can't control? Is it a feeling of guilt afterward? Do you do it to lift your spirits? Are you buying just because its on sale? Do you buy things that go unused?

Is it something you'd like to do more moderately?

Buying new clothes is great and you can definitely rock a small size and cute styles.

You may also be making up for lost time.

So just remember you'll look great in whatever you wear. So select pieces that really stand out. You can buy what you really like and you can make the right choices. It's navigating new territory. I understand.

You look wonderful! Don't doubt it.
