JUST WHAT I REALLY NEEDED - RIIIIIIIGHT.

I bought some new clothes.  To be exact, I bought three blouses and a strapless bra.  They arrived today in one of those blue plastic pouches.  Everything came, it's the right size and the right color and everything fits.  Yay!  But on all three blouses, the wrist openings are way too big.  Yes, I'm a large woman, but my wrists haven't kept up with the rest of me.  I guess that must not be the case for everyone.  I've never really invested any time in looking at fat ladies' wrists.  Most of them must be a lot pudgier than mine.  Now I have to either move the buttons on the cuffs or take a pleat in the cuff itself.  Phooey, I say, phooey!

 

So there are three new blouses laying on my bed.  I have no room for them in the closet.  I don't even have three empty hangers!  I knew this when I ordered these blouses, but I couldn't quite resist the 50% off coupon.  It was supposed to be a one-day sale, but they started it half a day early, so I did my shopping that afternoon instead of waiting for all the other fat ladies to buy the stuff I wanted before I could get to it..

 

Now I need someplace to go so I can wear my new stuff.

    I roll my sleeves up a couple. Apparently, my arms are shorter than the average. Ha…“some place to go”, that would be my problem. the only place I go is to the dr and the gro store. If you lived closer, i could bring you some hangers!

      Sleeves always feel just a bit short off the rack. :/

        They aren’t too short or too long – they’re too big around.

          no, they are the exact length between mt wrist and my shoulder. I understand, can you have them taken in?

            I can do it myself – either moving the button or taking a tuck in the cuff – I’m just irritated because I have to do it!!

    If you need a short term solution, you may want to consider hanging your blouses under your sweaters.

      Yes. One of my new blouses is a heavy corduroy that I got for next winter, and it will always be worn over a shirt or T-shirt

      That really sounds wonderful! But I’m too fat to fly now – I’d never fit in a seat. And it’s hard to walk on the beach with a cane … But if you had caught me a few years ago, we’d be all set.
