"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.
