That barista saved my life, but not really.
On top of that, most clothes off the rack don't fit me straight off the rack. So most of my clothes are fitted to my body specifically. Shopping with me is always an entire day venture where most would only take a few hours. Exhausting. Either the waist of pants are too wide, the inseam too long, the legs too short, sleeves too short and a host of other issues. ISSUES!
Additionally, a "natural beauty is real beauty" modeling agency I was looking at the other day accepts models that are SIZE 6 OR LARGER?!
I'm naturally this small. So is my grandma, even after giving birth to my dad and his four siblings.
One of my favorite clothing stores is White House Black Market. At 5 years old, I visited the first store in the Baltimore Harbor (after visiting the dolphins and sharks at the aquarium), and forever after then I knew I would shop there.
Fast-forward 2008, preparing for college, I knew needed an entire new wardrobe. Well, not just for vanity, but 12 years of uniform rendered me with plenty of knee socks and plaid skirts and naught else.So Mom and I bought my clothes in sizes 00, 0 and 2, depending on what needed to fit in what way.
THEN BAM! Fast forward to this past fall, mom and I went shopping in the same store and the 00's FIT LIKE 4's!
And I'm not crazy, Nigel in The Devil Wears Prada tells Andy: "No one eats around here since 2 become the new 6"
I'm not crazy, it's NOT ok that I have to be subjected to EVERYONE ELSE enjoying fast food while I work out every day. I haven't grown wider since high school, only taller...so what, what, what, what, what, what, what, what, what,what, what, what, what, what.
Is going on!?
It's REALLY FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!!!!
Even childrens' sizes are on the larger end! WHAT IS GOING ON AMURICA!?!?!?!
Ok, I feel a little better. I just had to get that off my chest. Can someone have a Givenchy/Ferragamo-Audrey Hepburn relationship with me so I can bypass all of these PROBLEMS IN MY LIFE and just have my clothes made for me?! Who's in?
Till soon, a very dejected,
