Big Girl Clothes

I went shopping today to try and get some new things for Spring. It's been pretty warm here the past few days. And all I really have is sweaters and then my old work blouses. I used to work in a Healthcare office and we wore business casual clothing. But now I have the luxury of working from home. So now I'm usually in Old Navy Pajama Pants and a T Shirt all day. We moved from Florida back to Georgia this past June and when we moved I threw out a ton of clothes. Now of course I'm regreting throwing away so much. But I needed to update my wardrobe anyways. So I went to a few of my favorite stores this afternoon (Ross, TJ Max, Marshalls, and Target) but I didn't find a thing! All I wanted to get was a few key pieces that I could mix and match. Just simple tees that I could layer and maybe throw on a light weight scarf with. Or some thin Spring Sweaters and maybe a little jacket. But what I found was that everything either seems to look too "young" for me, or like something my grandmother would wear! And the shirts are made way too long for my 5 foot 3 inch self. So then they look like dresses on me instead of shirts. And I already have a hard time finding short enough jeans for me so that they don't drag the ground. I know that Lane Bryant would have some awesome stuff but their so pricey! And I don't really have a LB Budget right this moment. I'm sooo depressed now. I really wanted a few new things to wear to help me feel better about myself. But so much for that. In a way though I'm glad that I'm feeling this way because it's made me determined as hell to stick to my goals. And eventually I won't have to be shopping for big girl clothes anymore and it will be so much easier to find things. But for now, does anyone have any other ideas where I could find some cute & fashionable Spring Stuff in Plus size? (That won't break the bank). Thanks for any ideas....

  1. I buy 95% of my clothing from Cato's. I wasn't sure if there would be one in your area. It said in your profile you were in Atlanta, so I looked up the Cato's in GA.. Here's the link...

    I hope there's one you can find close-by because that store is, without a doubt, the best place I have ever found for clothing. They have a regular woman's section and the other side of the store is for plus size. But the clothes are completely appropriate for work or just dressing nice for dinner.. Whatever you could need. It's the only place I've ever been able to find clothes that fit correctly at my shape, and the people that work in each store I've gone into have been so helpful and friendly.

    Hope that helps or you find another place that can be everything you need it to be!
