My style of clothes shopping is best described as commando. I have an hour after work before I need to get the kids and so I go to 2 shops; one for work/good clothes and one for everyday clothes. I pick up everything I like, try it on, and buy everything that looks OK. Then I go home, and don't go back for at least 3-6 months.
So far this doesn't sound too bad. Unfortunately one of those stores was Colorado… and they have closed down. So now I have to find another shop to buy clothes in.
I love the idea of spending a day swanning through shops, finding beautiful clothes that make me look 'stunning'. Unfortunately reality sets in, and I have limited time, limited money and limited patience. I need clothes which don't stain when they come into contact with Weetbix or snot (or both). I need clothes that look OK despite the fact that they will never be ironed. I need clothes that will forgive the fact that I have had 3 babies and 2 caesareans. And I need a new shop to get all this in.
Alternatively, I could just continue to wear the same old, slightly too big clothes… doesn't sound so bad really!
P.S The Country Boy just read this over my shoulder and offered to take me to the disposal store for some army pants and shirts - how thoughtful!
