a shopping experience
Monday, January 20, 2020
I went shopping with three friends this past weekend. My one friend is a 20/22, I am a 16/18, another friend is an 8/10 and the other is a 4/6.
My friend who is an 8/10 kept grabbing L/XL because she is so used to baggy clothes. We kept throwing M and even S at her and she marveled at herself in the mirror. She has no idea how to shop for herself. This weekend she finally bought clothes that fit because she had us to help.
My friend who is the size 6 is extremely fit struggled with finding new styles. She has amazing arm and shoulder muscles and a smaller bust so she struggled with sweaters and frills and v-necks. We found her cute henleys with front ties and vests to fit her style.
My friend who is 20/22 struggles with colors because almost all wash her out. We found her an adorable sweater that was warm and cozy and made her eyes pop.
I fell in love with a hat. I have always worried my head is too big and that it would draw attention to my double chin so I’ve always avoided them. They talked me into buying it, and I received compliments on it while shopping at other stores. I felt so fashionable and surprisingly sexy.
We all have different shapes, different weights and sizes, and different things to worry about. But together we helped each other find a new favorite outfit or accessory. It’s good to shop with friends.
