Back to School clothes

>> Saturday, September 5, 2009

Normally, it wouldn't much matter that I have nothing new to wear to start back to school next week.

But this time round I've lost 6o+ lbs since classes ended in April - and most of my clothes just don't fit well at all.

I do have some smaller size pants - but most of my tops are WAY big and baggy and at this point, just look downright sloppy. I did try to go back to school shopping yesterday, but I guess I'm spoiled now. I gave up shopping at Walartm some time ago ... started buying better quality clothes that last rather than the disposable sort that Walmart sells.

Since I'm still losing, I didn't want to spend money on clothes that would only fit for a short time, so I tried Walmart but OMG the colours and styles this year are HORRID. Couldn't find anything I wanted.... so ... it's off to school in whatever I manage to pull from my very limited stock here. Should have packed better - have been sick this week, plus working my arse off - and the clothes I packed just a few days ago are quickly becoming of the "droopy drawers" variety now.... oh well... having an open house with lots of goodies tomorrow (assuming I get to the grocery store first thing) .... maybe that will fix it.

    Oh, yeah, I buy most of my clothes at Walmart (several years ago though) and I've found them comfortable (which is what I'm usually shooting for.

    I can understand wanting better or more fashionable clothing, especially if you've made superlative changes in your appearance. Though, being ill isn't the path I'd chosen to break a plateau.

    Get healthier and keep looking. Hopefully you can eek your wardrobe along a bit further until you reach your weight goal.

    Do you have any thrift stores or secondhand shops? Especially if you're in the smaller sizes, those are good places to get inexpensive clothing while changing sizes.
