Okay… so yesterday I had a free moment ( well , I made one) to go to one of my fav stores.. TJ MAXX..
No I did’nt need anything ( do we ever?), I was just curious (wink wink ) to see what was going on for fall.. and maybe, just maybe browse around and get out quickly after ‘just looking’
So in my just looking moments.. I noticed a really cute pair of ” seamed “pants.. a slim pant with a thick seam up front and back.. a very classic tailored look …I was thinking this might just be my ‘it’ pant for fall.. and at $24.99 .. I LOVED them….
Now just as I was going thru the rack of many sizes/colors of these pants to find my size in black.. a woman comes rushing up to the rack and says.. “OMG.. is there a size 10 in back.. ?.. I must have these pants”… well… I already had the 8 and 10 / black pants in my hand ( sorry to say for her) .. but told her that I was going to try them both on to see which I liked best ( fit wise) and if I didn’t take the 10, Id bring them out to her… I mean.. I was there first, and I did have them in my hand? I thought I was being nice.. with my offer?
Her response… “honey.. have you looked int he mirror .. you are a size 4” I get that she was being nice.. and I did appreciate it… but I had to let her know.. .. while I could probably fit a size 4.. I don’t wear a size 4.. I am a size 8 – 10 ! Then she says.. “well how much do you weigh?” really.. is she asking me how much I weigh? I am serious.. this was a real confrontation.. I told her what I weigh.. and then she said.. see .. an 8 -10 is going to be too big on you..
Long story short.. ( this is a theme for me.. lucky for you).. I walked out buying the 10.. yes, HER pants. LOL
Point being…. wear what you are comfortable in.. and what looks right/good on you.. don’t let the size of a garment dictate your mood and definitely NOT your choice to wear/buy it..
I suppose.. for me.. Bigger really is better.. LOL I bought the hottest pants of the season..( or in my case seasons.. ) in a size 10.. woohoo.
Headed to the gym for upper body workout…
Create a great day..
