When you don’t have a job, it is easy to get bored and spend money you don’t have.
Yes, I found myself at Goodwill today. And, 4 pieces of clothing kept calling my name. I did put about 7 other items of clothing back on the rack. So, I ended up putting $12.50 on my credit card.
Here is what I bought-
Two blouses and two tops to go under these sheer, see through blouses-
The clothes are wrinkled in the photos. I did already wash and dry them and they are now wrinkle-free in my closet hanging, ready to be worn.
The peachy coral and white polka dotted blouse is a normal blouse. I just folded the sleeves in hopes that you could see the cute little button on the top part of the sleeve. But, I don’t think it shows too well on the pictures.
I just love the print on the other blouse and the the mauve color of the top that goes under it.
I do feel that those two blouse sets, I really needed. Yes, I have not been feeling the best about myself lately, with the whole being rejected thing- being fired from a job I just started for no reason at all…
And, I am no spring chicken anymore. I am 45 years old. I still am struggling with my diet, not able to lose many pounds. And, most days, I am at home being a mom to my two furbabies. My style is “Ragmuffin”.
My favorite clothes are t-shirts and sweatpants with either gym shoes or flip flops, my hair up off my shoulders in a twisted bun held by a hair clip.
Yes, I am in SERIOUS need of a makeover.
This is the most recent picture I have. It was taken about 6 months ago-
I admit- I often post pictures of myself that were taken YEARS ago on various websites when I believe I looked a lot better than I do now.
But, I know I am not the only one who does that. I personally know several people in person, and their pictures on Facebook and other social websites- well they also look much younger and thinner in those pictures- LOL
I looked at myself in the mirror of the resale shop today, and, well, I just didn’t feel attractive at all. I am pleasingly plump. My complexion is nowhere what it used to be. And, my hair is on the frizzy side. Glasses… Yeah, I wear glasses, (but, not in pictures).
And, I am wearing my glasses that have pit-marks in them, thanks to Charlie. I did get a brand new pair of glasses about 2 months ago, but those babies are in a plastic glasses case in my dresser drawer. I am saving those. I do not want Charlie to eat those! Maybe when he grows up a little more, I will take my chances.
Yes, my style or lack of style is frumpy. Actually, I don’t even think I have a style. I simply put on what is clean and comfortable. I wear clothes that have plenty of elastic and spandex. Elastic and spandex are my best friends, lately.
