Our store has only been open for about nine months. Until this weekend, I had only been inside their walls once. Didn't buy a thing.
So late last week, Kelly posted about "Recession Fashion" and included a Mr. Linky. I didn't feel the need to share my own version of "Recession Fashion" simply because I've been dieting since January 5th and I haven't bought myself a thing since before Christmas! I shop sales, but right now, my "Recession Fashion" means less fabric to cover my body - and I'm not talking undergarments and swimsuits!!
After reading a few blogs related to the topic, there was one store that kept popping up and the name was "Forever 21."
I decided to give it another shot.
I'm still too fat.
Did you know that store only goes up to a size "L"? That's "L" for LARGE, not "LAURA"!
Why, oh, why does everything have to be so tight fitting, so spaghetti-strappy, so cut-down-to-there?!
Why can't I look cute, too?!
I will say this: I like the store because it makes me feel as if I have reverted back to my favorite era: the ' 80's! All the layered looks, big accessories and leggings make me wish that "What A Feelin'" would begin blaring over the intercom any minute! It's those crazy tricks that make me think I can actually wear some of that crazy stuff and so I head off to the dressing room only to be disappointed and wishing for just that!....my '80's bod again!! I then come out of the dressing room, nearly in tears, hand the clothes to the skinny clerk and exclaim, "I'm too fat to wear these clothes!" She says, "No, you're not!" Bless her heart! She's only trying to make a sale!
As I left the store, I thought, "I bet I could make a small fortune on a "Forever 31" or "Forever 41" store!"
Of course, my version would be just a tad different: "For-evah 31 & 41."
And I would nevah, evah be too fat for those clothes!!
