Why is it that when you have a voucher for somewhere you can never find anything to spend it on? Alex gave me an Urban Outfitters gift card for Christmas, but it has taken me ages to find something to buy with it. I’m in dire need of some new clothes, but feel like the shops have had absolutely nothing in them for months on end – Well, nothing that suits or fits me, that is. There’s a lot of the same stuff in all the stores, and none of the affordable fashion is quite hitting the mark for me. Maybe it’s just the time of year or just the fact that I am feeling particularly poor at the moment.
It certainly doesn’t help that I am partial to a skirt (it’s harder to find a good one than you may think!) – Due to my height and shape I feel most comfortable in skirts and more so at the moment, whilst I’m rocking the winter podge look. I’ve always struggled to find clothes that suit me, and I crave those extra few inches just so I can break free and buy all the fashion items that I truly love, but currently have to hold above my head! Ahh, the curse of being short!
Anyway, moan moan. I have to admit I’m a lot luckier than Alex, who is a small male (sorry Alex, no other way to describe you for this one) and can literally only shop for an extra small in one store. Thankfully it’s a good one! A few days ago he did his annual shop (yes, he’s that unlucky!) and came away with quite a few nice items from AllSaints. We had previously popped into the store in Bluewater, just before Christmas, and hit slight panic mode as all the extra small clothes seemed to have increased in size. The fit was not good and Alex came away with nothing… I think it was the trend at the time, but please, please leave small people’s sizing alone as baggy is not a good look on us!
Here are a few of the items Alex bought from AllSaints. There were more, but Alex, being Alex, has folded them all neatly away in his cupboard and I can’t remember what the rest were. I’ll do the honours and share them with you all because he has better things to do than moan about fashion problems to the world. That’s my job.
