Clothes Shopping with Batwings
Tuesday, June 09, 2009
Let me start by saying, I HATE clothes shopping! I know some of you are thinking,"she lost weight and weighs 140 pounds, what complaints could she have about clothes shopping!" Besides being 5' 11", (buying pants makes me want to scream), in losing weight, I have acquired "batwings". No matter what kind of exercises I do, they still swing. It's not a matter of not being toned, it's just a matter of having a little too much extra skin left. The kids love me for shade when it gets too hot! Winter wear is no problem, but when I see summer coming, my arms start to sag even more. I went to Kohls. You can't beat a BOGO sale with an additional 20% off coupon. I was determined to buy some cute tops for summer. 90% of the tops there had those cap sleeves or were sleeveless. Neither one very good for hiding "batwings". Sure I could have found some in the mature section, but I didn't lose all this weight so that I could wear clothes that my grandmother would wear! I want to sport clothes that are cute and hip. 2 hours later I left with 1 top and 3 pairs of capri pants. (I really didn't need any more pants, but at that point I had to take advantage of something for free!) I did get those things along with some t shirts and socks for my guys, all for $100.00! But I digress............Why can't someone make summer tops with sleeves???!!!!! Please????!!!!! I'm thinking of taking a scissors to all of my winter shirts, but then once winter comes, I'd have to go back to clothes shopping. It's a vicious circle!
