Shop The Mall...It Heals 'The Frumps'


Ya know, when you have a Big Ol Birthday like I just had, you are likely to have an attack of 'Feelin' Frumpy'.  You're standin' in the closet and everything  screams 'Old Lady'...'WornOut-TrashMe'...Buttons Gone-Ripped Butt'...'Go Shoppin', Already!

It's hard to part with those JCP Stretch Bell Bottoms.  But when you've stitched that  butt seam for the jillionth time...they're done!  Let them go!  Give them up! 

The Keds, too!  Face it Sue, they aren't even good enough for Goodwill.  Nobody's  bunion will fit just right in the hole you cut out and since you removed the liners for your OrthoInserts....they are done...finished...kaput!

So, to silence the screaming I went shopping!  I went to the mall.  I know!  I  N E V E R go to the mall. 

My GrandGals say it's the coolest place to shop...but Nana stay outta JCP...pha-leeeze!  And don't go to Sears either...that's why your closet is screaming!  I'm stunned...you mean there are other stores?  Oh, Yeah, Nana go to GAP or PINK or Scraps R Us or any of those Awesome shops!

So I did!  OMG!  I had no idea that mini-skirts were back and less material means more money.
Who knew that GAP stood for God Awful Pants!
Or that Scraps R Us clothes really were made from scraps and little bitty scraps at that,
and that PINK meant that EVERYTHING in the store was...

 Now this was a COOL Shop! 
 I actually did Shop in here and HiHoney tried out the Zebra Shoe and said it was comfortable!
After stripping the manequin of that Pink Top...why is it she's always wearing the last one in my size...I spotted the Clearance sign next door.  I did not know they did Ear Piercings for half price!  What does that mean?  Does that count for Just One Ear or one Body Part Pierced? 
I asked HiHoney if he wanted to check it out!  I got 'The Look'!  It was piercing! 
So we went to the other Next Door Shoe Store!
 Please, God...do not let the Trash Truck come today!  Please let my Keds be safe!
We went right back next door to PINK for....
I explained to HiHoney that buying this bag would save him lots of $$$!!!
How do you figure that, he asked?
It's simple...by carryin' this bag Nobody...I mean nobody...will notice my Keds!
I got 'The Look'...again...it was piercing!

As Always...Thanks Beverly for Making Saturdays Pink!

Sue I can't even begin to think of putting any of those clothes on my plus size body. And those shoes...I would be more crippled then I already am....clothing like that was meant for the young. I've become a jeans and tshirt gal for sure. Cute post, made me smile. Hugs, Linda

Happy Pink Saturday Sue Sweetie...
Oh I am SO LOL. How hilarious is this post. Love it that someone else has noticed the length again, and some of these clothes, Paleeez. Yes that is why we love our JCP and Sears. They actually have clothes that cover us. They also have panties that are complete, not just strings.

Love the shirt you chose though. Can't wait to see a photo of you in it. It is so cute. Thank you for the happy heart this evening. I can always count on you for a smile. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Hi sue, You did make me laugh my self into a spasm. I am proud of you for going to the "Mall" I too hate going to the mall. Love your sense of humor and I do think you should have bought the purse. HA!

Happy Pink Store, I mean Saturday.

Hugs, Jeanne

PS: I started quilt lessons again. It has been 21 yrs. since I tried quilting earnestly. I just might surprise you with some quilt posts.

I cannot stop laughing...what a cute post. Yeah my days of wearing those clothes and shoes are long gone (well maybe in my bedroom when no one is looking). I do enjoy shopping with my daughter though and thankful that she isn't a mini-skirt kind of girl. Happy Pink Saturday.

Hugs, LisaKay
