I NEED a WHOLE New Wardrobe

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

Yes I do. I have lost over 50 pounds and still losing. Most if not all of my clothes are literally falling off me—including under garments. My biggest problem is that I am also looking for a part time job and have only one dress and one pair of slacks that even semi fit me. NOT GOOD. To make matters worse I have no idea what size I am now.

My Mom—that 92 year old whirl wind I have told you about before—is definitely the shopper in this family. She can sniff out quality clothes at discount prices no matter what store she is in. Of course the snow bird will not be returning north for the summer until the end of April (definitely before Mother’s Day of that you could place a sure bet) and I NEED a couple of outfits NOW. Not having much cash at the moment I am definitely going to have to search out bargains and coupons.

II actually prefer shopping on-line. I am one of those that dislikes trying on clothes (thus the reason my Mom usually drags me out there)—I have no patience. She has actually been mentioning that one of the first things that are going to happen when she gets home is that we are going to Kohl’s. That is one of her favorite stores. Strangely enough I just saw a coupon from Kohl’s somewhere online, Save 10% off Any Order of $75 or More + Free Shipping. I would definitely take advantage of that free shipping offer IF I knew my sizes. Maybe I will go find that coupon again and go to the actual store before my Mom returns!!

Congratulations! I remember that feeling of losing weight. I lost that much several years ago and kept it off. I shop at thrift stores, but ebay was a good place for me to check out, too.

Your mom sounds amazing!

Awesome! Congrats on losing weight. I desperately need some new clothes, too. But, with for kids, Mom is usually last on the list to get anything new. Good luck in your job search.

Congrats on losing that much weight.. and keep up the momentum! As for not knowing your size, take measurements of yourself and google what your size would be based on those measurements. All clothing brands are different, but at least this might give you a ballpark figure to go off of. And most importantly, happy shopping!!

It is great that you have managed to lose a lot of weight. Wow! It is a blessing to have a 92 year old mom who is good at shopping. I hope you find some nice clothes for spring.

Congratulations! How are you doing it?

I know what you mean about preferring to shop online. Same here.That has only happened since I have gotten older. I just can't get excited about shopping anymore which is a good thing financially, I guess.
