So yesterday wasn't a good day for me. Today isn't necesarily a big difference but I do feel a tad bit less-hopeless.
That's good right?
Well I decided to do something different.. Like what?
I decided to go window shopping at the local Lane Bryant store. (Which is quickly becoming my favorite plus size clothing store.. close call with Torrid)
Except I forgot how easily I can succumb to salesmanship and flat out flattery. Especially when the sexily dressed sales lady grabs me from the beginning and tells me that I should watch out because since I'm "smaller sized" that things my "small" size goes fast and I should make sure to check out this section and etc.
The ladies also convinced me to try out a cami/shirt layer combination in a size smaller than what I'm used to.
I try on the thing. I like it. The ladies convince me to buy it.
I listen to them. I feel better.
Why did this happen?
Maybe because I felt better when someone told me I was considered "smaller sized" in a plus sized store.
Maybe it was because of the way I looked in the size they gave me.
Maybe it's because I hate my current look and wanted to do something different. (I did straighten my hair today.. something I haven't done since college.)
I don't know but you be the judge:
This is me, today, with straight hair in a LB fitting room with a cami/shirt combination in a size 14/16.
This is the crappy pic I managed to take with my phone the second one of the very insistant sales ladies knocked on my door and asked me how I was doing.
I think you could tell I had the "cat ate the canary" caught look when I turned around. LOL
What do you think? Well obviously I liked it cause I ended up buying the cami (not the shirt) and I feel like going back and buying more.
I admit I felt weird though cause the sales woman kept talking to someone on the other side of her headset and kept repeating "Bring out all the different color camis in a size 14. A size 14 honey. Yes 14."
I kept thinking "14? Weird!!"
No. I am NOT a size 14. Not yet.
But one day!~
