Plus or Not?!

Hi Ladies,

As anyone who's read my blog for a while knows, I LOVE to shop! I love clothes, I love accessories, I love retail therapy.  I've bought myself a bunch of new jeans lately, some cute plaid shirts and tees to wear to classes, etc.  I do find I'm really lacking in tops to wear out to the bar, it's just hard to find that stuff because a lot of things without stretch my boobs are still big for... and it's fricken annoying!

I've also started looking for a dress to wear to our work Holiday party which is December 9th. I've got some ideas as to what I want - shape wise - something high-waisted, because I can kind of make my problem area disapear in the right shape, and colour-wise - something silvery or purple-y I think. I've tried on a couple of dresses and some have been OK - but so many I feel so in between sizes. I think if it weren't for my belly I'd probably be like an 8 in the legs, I'm a 12 in the waist, a 14 in most tops, but a 16 in anything tight in the bust... With thin little arms! Oy. So disproportionate.

Anyways I was on Nordstrom.com and saw this gorgeous dress at half off and I want it but it's only in some bigger sizes... So anyone hanging around 22 or 20 check it out!

Yup I have the same boob trouble - I'm losing there, but not enough. The other day I tried on a 16 (14 where you are I think) and it was stretching across and I REFUSED to go a size up as it fit everywhere else. Annoying it is!!

Angie if the dress is a super deal buy it and have it tailored for you. When you have different sizes everywhere a good tailor is your best friend!

I have the exact opposite problem! The legs...toooo damn big.

Anyway, have you checked Ann Taylor? I like the silvery idea!
