Mean Girls

After writing my post of yesterday, I went back to bed but I felt restless. So decided to get up and get dressed and head to the movies. Ended up seeing Mean Girls which lifted my spirits somewhat. Then I went shopping for a dress to wear to my friend’s wedding. I went to every major department store on Michigan Avenue and couldn’t find anything I liked. Truth be told, I couldn’t find a dress that fit me properly. I’m too slim for plus sizes but not skinny enough for regular sizes. I’m in that awkward in-between phase. So that left me feeling depressed. I suppose I could try again next weekend. Or then again, maybe I’ll just wear a dress I already own. No sense spending a ridiculous sum of money for a dress I won’t get much wears out of.

  1. too small for plus sizes and too big for regular sizes?? tha hell? since when has losing weight been like growing your hair out of a short cut?
    i don’t know if your saying mi ave was supposed to tell us the quality of the stores, but i suggest you look elsewhere. perhaps you should try a 2 piece or suit.
    i also think wearing something you already own is the best way to go.

  2. Michigan Avenue in Chicago is where you’ll find all the high end department stores. While shopping for a dress, I went to: Lord & Taylors, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom and Marshall Fields. I did find stuff that sort of fit, but it wasn’t jazzy enough. Since iit’s an evening wedding, I need to find a more black tie dress. Didn’t have much luck on Friday night. I suppose I’ll try again next weekend.

  3. I suggest ebay shopping…worked for me. 🙂
    Also, you might try jessicalondon.com (their plus size stuff tends to run a little small, btw…I’m an 18 for skirts at most places now, but I’m a 20 for them).
