Wardrobe Update: Trip to the Mall

I went to the Mall yesterday after work. The goal was to get business casual type clothes, because I've had far too few reasons in recent years (oh, 5 years) to purchase business casual clothes. I shopped around. I went to Talbots, Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, Ann Taylor Loft, H & M, New York & Company, Nordstrom, The Gap... I did some heavy duty shopping. And I bought...

:::::: drumroll ::::::


That's right. Nothing. The problems that I had:
  1. I was tired yesterday morning due to lack of sleep and I was in a bad mood, so I wore no make up, a sweatshirt and jeans. Translated into the mall was that I looked horrible in anything that I tried on.
  2. I was making an attempt to stay reasonably priced.
  3. The spring stuff is out. Yet, I need to be wearing this stuff within the next week or so. So, I was having trouble deciding what to get that would be appropriate for winter.
  4. I had trouble figuring out what is too fancy for business casual and what is too casual for business casual. It's been a while since I've had to think about that.
  5. I hate my weight right now and don't want to try anything on, plus I couldn't have picked a worse time of the month to be looking. Combine this with #1 and I felt either fat, ugly or both when I tried anything on.
  6. I lack shoes.
  7. I'm basically HORRIBLE at picking out clothes and putting together outfits. That's really what it comes down to.
I have to try again tonight because I have to pick something out. #5 is worse than yesterday, but at least I resolved #1. And I've decided to forget #2 and just spend what needs to be spent. I'll report back tomorrow.
