When the hell did fashion take such a drastic curve in the wrong direction?
I went to the mall yesterday in search of some summer tops because I have none! My favorite store of all time for Juniors clothes (yes I refuse to move up to womens. I will stay in Juniors as long as I possibly can) has always been Jcpenny. They always had clothes in my style for very cheap. I went there yesterday and everything was a crop top! I cannot wear a crop top. I am not a size zero so there is no way in hell I am letting my gut hang out for all to see. I ended up finding one tank I liked in the whole store, one of very few that was normal length. I haven't been clothes shopping in a couple years so I felt sooo behind in the fashion trends. I had no idea cropped tops were all young people were wearing now a days. After being very let down by what used to be my favorite place to shop I stopped at Forever 21 which is my second favorite store. Once again everything was cropped or completely see through. I think layering is another trend I haven't caught onto yet. I left that store empty handed.
While we were on our way out of the mall a new store caught my eye that I had never been to before called Cotton On and I found a really cute tank there and lot of other fun quirky things but I talked myself out of buying those. So after what seemed like a whole afternoon of shopping I left with two tanks. Only spent $25 which makes me happy but my wardrobe really needs some new things. I still wear things from High School. I also have stuff in my closet and drawers that I haven't worn in years that I really need to donate. For each new thing I get I have to get rid of one that I currently have.
I guess I need to find some new stores to shop at. I'm thinking of going out and trying Target and Kohls. Where do you guys get your summer clothes?
