I went to the mall yesterday. I haven't been to an actual mall in a really, really long time. I've been easing my way back into this whole shopping thing, but now I think I finally got the hang of it! We went to Nordstroms and had an absolute blast. We were treated like royalty!
My friend and I were shopping for dresses to wear for two separate weddings. We must have tried 30 dresses each, easily. So much fun! And I needed two of them, one for the rehearsal dinner and one for the wedding.
My body is weird! I have always needed dresses a few sizes up from pant size to accommodate my upper half. I used to think it was the breasts, but it's really my back, or my rib cage. I can't figure it out and neither could my friend. She was shocked and actually got angry for me.
It was rather funny. Looking at me, I do not look deformed, but that darn zipper gets stuck just as it hits the back ribs. I don't know what it is. I guess I have a good, solid, strong, wide back.
Get this. In the same store, I wore a size 10 dress and a size 4 skirt.
I was so happy to tug the waistline out in the size 6 skirt and proudly say to the sales woman, "I need a size 4."
That made me feel so much better after nixing all the size 8 dresses. LOL!
Oh, and my girlfriend is the opposite. She wears dresses a size SMALLER than pants.
