My style is best described as “just got our of bed and threw on whatever was on the floor that didn’t smell like armpits.”
I love getting hand me down clothes because then I don’t have to go shopping. But lately I’ve noticed that my second hand wardrobe seems to be at the end of its life cycle. Everything is stained, ripped, ill fitting or smells like armpits even after washing.
Getting dressed has become such a chore. It’s like choosing between the lesser of two evils; the shirt with the hole in the sleeve or the one with the stain on the boob? The jeans that are too big that show my butt crack every time I bend over or the “snug” ones that emphasize my muffin top?
It’s safe to say that I’m in the midst of a serious clothing crisis. I know I should just bite the bullet and go shopping, but it’s so hard! I generally gravitate towards the clothes found in the junior department, which sadly are not tailored to women who’ve had three children and like to drink beer.
So what’s the alternative?
High waisted mom jeans?
Can I please skip the boring “pushing forty fashions” and go straight to the colourful muumuus that will surely be my wardrobe staple in my later years???
So here’s what I want to know; where do women in their late thirties, that have a limited budget, buy clothes that actually fit their bodies? Clothes that are fun and that don’t make them look like octogenarians?
Please help me in my clothing quest. I’m tired of looking like a ragamuffin.
P.S. On a totally unrelated note, I just learned from Wikipedia that there is a common breed of domestic cats called Ragamuffins! Look at that beauty! I think we’re soul mates.
