I went to go buy a dress for my class reunion today and it took hours. I used to go to Lane Bryant and just pick whatever was cheap and unobstrusive. Then I slimmed up a bit and could shop anywhere with a 16....which is limiting. Then asa 14 with spanx could wear certain cuts.
Now I'm a 12. Every store and every dress comes in a 12. I tried on probably 50 dresses and probably half of them fit perfectly and looked great. It was odd to have a large selection of attractive dresses to choose from. And it consumed a ton of time and the decision was hard.
Pleased to note... smaller than I was in high school.
I find it terribly frustrating when I can't remember which catalogue I bought which item from when I want to go back and replace the baggy item with one that fits.
On the bright side, the local American Cancer Society thrift shop loves me as I keep bringing them the things I clean out of my closet.
Does it have a tag in it?
Can you check your emails from when you bought it if you did it online, or your bank account if you know about when you got it?
Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.
If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

Despite my better (fashion based) judgement, I am REALLY interested in getting some VFF's. They are a pipe dream right now, I cannot afford to spend that kind of money on something that isn't bills or groceries right now, but I still like to imagine what kind I would get.

Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).
I kinda wonder about Vibrams.
I'm always barefoot inside, and outside I only wear the loosest, most flimsy, thin-soled ballet slippers ever. Stepping on rocks in them is just as bad as stepping on them barefoot, but this way I don't get stubbed toes (I kinda shuffle more than walk). The only "real" shoes I ever wear are chuck taylors for weightlifting at the gym, and they hurt the soles of my feet, presumably since I'm used to feeling the ground when I walk.
Are VFFs really necessary? Like, they seriously look like more material than I even wear on my feet currently. And I think I would find it really irritating to have stuff between my toes. Are they really that good? I know everyone raves about them, but they kinda seem unnecessary?
