I can't dress myself

Add ImageI have a love/hate relationship with getting clothes for Christmas. I absolutely hate getting clothes as a present because just a small percentage of the clothes I receive actually fit. An even smaller percentage of the clothes that fit are articles that I also feel comfortable wearing. I wind up feeling extremely sad and frustrated by the time I've tried everything on (and returned the majority of the items.)

The other half of me loves receiving clothes as presents because I hate shopping. Too many clothing choices overwhelms me, and I tend to just walk around stores with a dumbfounded look on my face. I've said on more than one occasion that I need a personal shopper. Seriously.

Whether I love it or hate it, I will be receiving (and have already received) some new articles of clothing this month. The generosity of others who take the time to shop for me is much appreciated since it helps keep me from leaving the house looking like... this.

  1. If you lived closer, we could go shopping together! I love to do it, but get frustrated with the way things don't look as cute on me as they do on the hanger...and I'm sure they'd look cuter on you!
