Where am I suppose to shop?

I'm perplexed. Not again, but still. Where should I be shopping for clothes these days? It seems I have two choices: skanky-looking teenager clothes (hee, hee, don't you just love the word "skanky"?) or old lady clothes. By skanky-looking teenager clothes, I'm talking about super-tight shirts that make me look like an overstuffed sausage and teeny, tiny skirts that probably only look good on Barbie dolls. And by old-lady clothes, I'm talking about stuff like sweat shirts with little bears and daises sewn on them.

For the past few years, I've been shopping at Aeropostale a lot, mainly because their stuff is so darn cheap! But lately, I've felt very conspicious amongst the teeny boppers in there. When I went to their website the other day, instead of having links to the 'Women' and 'Men' sections, they have links to the 'Boys' and 'Girls' sections. That just doesn't feel right.

I went to American Eagle two weeks ago; they sell to 'Women' on their site. I was trying on some jeans and was chatting with the twenty-something sales clerk, who then smiled at me and said, "You remind me of my mom!"

"Oh, ugh!--- Ahh!" I thought, "How old does she think I am? Gag, maybe I shouldn't be in here!"

I left without buying anything.

So please, tell me...I see you thirty-somethings dressed all cute and stuff...where are you buying your clothes?


  1. Ah, hahahahahahahah....still laughing by the way...if it makes you feel better, you have never reminded me of my mom! Of course I am no longer in my twenties. So does this mean that I can't shop at Aero...anymore because I love the cheap t-shirts and teeny-bopper stuff..although I am starting to feel a little out of place there too. Why is everything in super-extra (Rachel-size) small? I mean even at AE there stuff seems to run in little girl sizes...and I don't think that I am over the average size...hmmm! I am as perplexed as you except that I still have a few years to go, before I really hit that desperate housewifes stage haha! Good luck with that, and when you find out let me know!

  2. I love Kohls! It's fun, cheap and you can get stuff from the Ladies and Juniors section. You're tiny, Jill! Have fun with it. :D
