I admit defeat today. I’m just not in the right head space. The computer is doing all sorts of weird things which are not normal. I would say it’s Mercury Retrograde, but it’s not. I checked.
I’m super sensitive having almost cried in the dressing room of a local clothing shop. And I wasn’t even trying on bathing suits! That I could understand because pasty white before summer in those mirrors…no way. I knew better than to try that today.
But I went in to get a new pair of jeans because I need them. And I hate the new styles. Cropped looks awful on a short girl like me and these high waists are so uncomfortable. They just don’t fit me right. I’m short-waisted so I feel like a sausage!
What’s going on with the ripped jeans too? And those chewed off edges on the leg openings? I thought it was bad when there were those skinny jeans, but this is even worse! Am I the only one hating these styles? Are you a fan of the super-high waisted?
I loved the lower rise jeans of a few years ago. Paired with a boot cut and I was in heaven because as a petite girl, the boot cut allowed me to look taller (or so I thought). But these cropped things are awful and you can’t find a pair that’s not cropped or torn or chewed on.
Now I will admit that I have gained some weight and it seems to be around my middle so that’s also part of this rant and teary-feeling. There’s nothing worse than shopping when you feel less than…but I needed a pair of jeans and a top for a lunch date tomorrow with high school friends that I haven’t seen in a long time. Hence, the shopping today.
In the end, I did buy a pair of those cropped jeans that are rolled up. They seemed to work because the roll was not that short one, but a definitive one. I used to be more into fashion, but since Covid, I haven’t cared as much. I guess I need to start checking the fashion blogs more often to get with it. Because obviously, I’m showing my age.
So if you have any fashion over 50 blogs that you like, please feel free to share them with me because I need a little boost. That and some dieting and exercise and….LOL
One step at a time…isn’t that the key to everything?
