Clothes Shopping (YUCK!)

Please tell me that I am not the only one who has trouble finding clothing to FIT. Since I found out we are going MAUI, I have been obsessed with clothes. I have no decent clothes. I hate to shop, always opting for my old comfortable worn out outfits.

I was so excited when I went to Macy's last night and found, not one, but two pair of shorts. Well, they are the longer shorts, which on my short fat legs are more like capris. I am wearing them today and they are soooo comfortable, I think I might go back and buy some more. The best part, they were only $8.60. Can you believe it?

Shirts are a whole different story. I am a little busty and don't want the "girls" hanging out. Too old and fat for that one. It is ridiculous trying to find any shirts. I really want a white cotton shirt. Sounds perfect for those Hawaiian breezes, huh? Well, I find one to fit the bust, too tight in the arms. Fits in the arms, too tight at the hips. YIKES!!!

Shoes are another issue. My feet match the rest of my body, short and fat. Went to an actual shoe store. You know the ones where the clerk actually waits on you. No luck there. They had not one thing to fit the piggies. I finally found a pair of Keenes at a local sporting goods store. Depending on the shoe, I can sometimes get a pair in the kids department. They aren't exactly cute, but hey at this point, I am looking for comfort.


  1. I am all about comfort these day..this kid has fallen off the fashion train..give me elastic anyday...hope you have some luck finding what you need to be cute, sassy and comfy..:)

  2. Ugh - I know what you mean. All the clothes are awful, and if something IS cute it doesn't fit. I hate clothes shopping, too!

    Still, in Hawaii everybody is pretty casual, so go to one of the little Hawaiian shops and buy a couple of things when you get there. I love me some Hawaiian prints!

  3. I know what you mean about clothes shopping! Try Kohl's for nice tops and variety.
    Go casual...hope you have a wonderful time on your trip!

  4. I just went through this same scenerio!!! Could not find anything that fit and was age appropiate!!! I hate to shop first of all and love my comfy mens!!!! We need a shop for comfy cloths for women that wash well and are affordable!!
    Maui!!! Wowwee!! Have a blast!!!

  5. I know what you mean about clothes shopping. Cloths should be comfort, body fitted and attractive.

  6. it will be worth all the grief of that nasty shopping! have fun in hawaii
