Nothing infuriates my husband more than me spending 20 minutes (or more) looking for clothes but coming back empty handed afterwards. Imagine this scene. I go into a boutique. Disappear in the heaps of clothes for 15 minutes frantically fitting clothes on and hoping I would find one I like. Meanwhile, he stays outside trying to take care of the two kids. The minutes drag on and the kids get rowdier by the minute. By the time I come out he’s exhausted and when he sees me empty handed he feels I’ve wasted our time. Although he’s right, I find myself getting defensive that it’s not my fault if I don’t find clothes that fit right for me.
So you can imagine the tension between us when we’re out shopping!
It came to the point that I didn’t like shopping for clothes anymore. I even wanted to hire a stylist just so I can find clothes that would look good on me. (I just wish! haha)
Anyway, this all changed when I realized I can find the best fitting clothes in less than five minutes at any given store if I just do this one single thing…
This realization happened after I just had my nails done at Nailaholics. I was alone that time so I decided to check some clothes after. Since I was already running late and the baby was waiting for me I asked the sales lady if she could help me find clothes that fit well. She didn’t waste any time and came back with one suggestion after the other. In less than a minute I was holding five clothes in my arms I even asked her if I am allowed to fit it all at once.
Once inside I was surprised the clothes fit well. I even took a shot so you could see.
I also bought another one which I forgot to take a picture. It was a floral blouse with three fourth sleeves. I admit I would have bought more if I don’t have a budget. These clothes I would not even think of trying out but thanks to helpful attendants they were able to point out those worth fitting right away.
