"Fat day" + nothing to wear = LOTS OF TEARS!

So, If you're slightly overweight (or maybe even if you're not) you know what I mean by "having a fat day". *

When these episodes occur in my life...WATCH OUT. There WILL be tears involved.

...add in a little "can't find anything to wear" and you've got the ingredients for a disaster.

That was me last night and this morning. I've realized that in my quest to downsize my wardrobe before moving to Ch*na...I've literally downsized TOO MUCH. I have a handful of warm work (aka: "old lady") clothes but literally, only two thick shirts to wear during the winter months. One is (you guessed it) a "Shelli signature" turtleneck...the other is a fancy sweater dress that looks nice over jeans. But, what about every other day of the week? Aaaaaaagggggggghhhhhhhh!!!

So, what does that mean for me? Purchasing a few new pieces (which is exactly what I don't want to do) or lots of layering.

Layering is all fine and dandy for the average sized person...but on a Plus Size Gal? AHHH HECK NO! You go from chubby to the "Stay Puft Marshmallow Man"...or the "Michelan tire" guy. Take your pick.


Sometimes, I just want to starve myself with the single purpose to simply fit in clothes more comfortably.


* "FAT DAY" = a day that may or may not fall on our around a womans period in which she feels ugly and more "fat" than usual days. I would advise any male to stay away from the female during said day...unless you approach her with wine, chocolates or flowers. Or...all three.

The website has been saving me lately. Specifically the clearance section. Do I like that the plus sized stuff is only online? No. But I do like cheap clothes. It's worth it.

Don't forget about the thrift store-- they're great places to find gently worn winter wear to get you through at work!
