The mall was on the way home from the hospital so I hit every store there still trying to find jeans that actually fit me. I tried on more jeans than I can count but kept running in to the same problem. I am just a bit too small for a size 5 and just a bit too big for a size 3. Some size 3 pants might have fit right but they are designed for teen age girls and I definitely do not have the thighs of a tiny size 3 teen age girl. I'm a real woman, and real women have fat on their thighs. In addition to some fat, I have pretty muscular thighs from all the pole dancing. So while some size 3 jeans mostly fit, the thighs of the jeans were just too tight. I finally settled on a size 5 pair that don't quite fit right, but they will have to do because I need jeans for my trip next week.
The Northgate mall got a new Wet Seal (another store for teen girls), so I picked up a soft, pretty sweater there for my trip as well for just $18. And I got a scarf that is white and sparkly and looks like snow for only $10. Merry Christmas to me!
