I don’t enjoy buying clothes. I don’t enjoy it because I pretty much always think I look awful (understand the wedding dress fear now?) and I buy most things from ebay – a habit I got into when on LighterLife when I knew my size would change relatively quickly. I am not sure if I were able to nail shopping, I’d feel less of a ragbag - but I digress.
I have 4 work skirts at any time (since we have dress down Friday) so anything that disrupts that pattern (a meeting on a Friday, say) is a disaster as there is no 5th option.
January is the biggest disaster of them all. I wouldn’t say any of the skirts fit well at the best of times: 1) rather too big so it swivels, 2) too big on the waist but otherwise fine 3) slightly straighter and snugger and 4) really quite small. I’d just about got into number 4 comfortably before Christmas but I will have to wear it on Thursday. Assuming it does up. And that goes for skirt 3 too. I only worked Wed and Thu last week so was fine in 1 and 2 but My. Time. Is. Up. Gulp.
