I am now solidly in a regular size 14.. so much so that I can't even wear my 16s anymore cuz they just hang.. so, today I go to Dillards (a department store ala Macy's).. usually, I go to the "Women's Department" and in my local Dillards it's stuck way in the back corner of the place next to the dishes and towels.. LOL nice.
Today, I could shop anywhere I wanted and practically danced through the door. Three minutes later I was completely overwhelmed - I could shop ANYWHERE in the store?? I didn't even know where to start! I clearly should have planned for more time but when you're used to going to the same 30x50 space and know the rounders by heart (okay a slight exaggeration) - a shopping event takes about 15 minutes.
I roamed around and let the feelings settle.. then picked out a few things to try on.. but my response what not what I expected.. I thought I would be overjoyed.. and don't get me wrong, I was excited to have so many choices.. I just wasn't *comfortable* with it, ya know? I wasn't comfortable with the number of choices.. the space.. the sizes of clothes.. and the overwhelming number of CUTE THINGS!! LOL Yep, I warmed up... and I left with two new outfits that I adore!
I'm just glad I didn't venture into the actual MALL.. that's got to be advanced shopping and I think I'll stick to one store at a time... for now...
