The Switch








I haven't been shopping in a long while- I thought it was necessary to update my wardrobe a bit and get some skinny jeans and a tunic or two. I go to Kohl's (which I've always loved) Junior section and grab some things that I'm pretty sure are my size. I look for the dressing room with the most mirrors (some dont even have them inside the room!) and begin to try on these clothes that I thought for sure would have stayed in the 1980's. What the...?! Nothing fits! I know what you're thinking, skinny jeans are supposed to be tight and uncomfortable, but really, this wasn't right. Even the 'loose, flowy' tunics just fit weird. So I tried the next size up, fit better, but still sooo uncomfortable in all the wrong spots. I decided there was nothing left for me to do (some of you know where I'm going with this...) I went to the WOMENS department.

I tried on a small, and it felt awesome!! In the womens department, you wont find any super low jeans that give you camel toe, or shirts that are made too short to show off your belly button piercing. Just nice fitting clothes made with comfort in mind. Wow, am I old or what! I'm 25 years old and I guess that qualifies me to be a woman, but I didn't think shopping in the womens dept came till much later...

So move over, Britney Spears, make room for Lauren Conrad's line, because I've made the switch to the womens department!

I have that same problem at Kohl's! Glad to know what remedies that (I'd love to be a small again)! :)

Well Kohls is the problem! I hate that place. How you manage to find cute clothes there, I'll never know! One time I went in there with a gift card and tried on everything in the store. I left empty handed. Really??

I'm feeling your pain though on the women's section. I stopped fitting in the junior section a while ago... I guess I am a few years older than you. Barf - dont remind me. Love you! I want to see your new clothes! ...and the chicks! Can't wait for dinner on Sunday. :o)

I deleted that comment I put up there first... I made a bunch of typoes and it didn't even make sense. So I fixed it and re-posted. ;o)
