Whispers of YEAH BABY!

Sears Canada has a clothing sale on now called "Whispers of Fall." The cynical side of me immediately thought, "good grief, it's not even AUGUST." And then there's the side of me that's excited beyond all reason about the thought of clothes shopping in the fall. Like, seriously, since seeing that ad, I'm super excited.

I LOVE autumn. Love, love, LOVE it. I love everything about it. The sunny days with the hint of crispness, the colours, the darkening days, the return of rain, the type of food, and yes, the clothes. I LOVE autumn clothes shopping. But I haven't done it for years because of my weight and being depressed at not being able to fit into the clothes I see skinny people wearing.

But not this year, baby! THIS year I get to go Autumn clothes shopping with the same excitement of days of yore. AND I might get to do it in a smaller sized store. EEEP! How wonderfully awesome is that? And even if I don't move out of Penningtons, I don't care. Autumn clothes shopping!!!

We've been on a bit of a budget lately (paying off that sinful vacation) so I haven't had money for summer clothes. But, I should have enough shirts to see me through the rest of the summer and I won't feel so deprived because I'll be saving up my dollars for the fall wardrobe season!!!

Again, EEP! I say! I'm in the stratosphere of excitement! :) :) :)

Hey there, thanks for checking out my blog, and yes feel free to link to it. I'll do the same for you if that's ok ( and if I can figure out how).

I totally agree - fall is the BEST! and i love fall clothes. It is bittersweet in that I love to shop but there is very little selection in plus sizes... but hey that's why i'm doing my thing on weight watchers now. Hopefully by fall I can at least go down a size or two, and by next fall... well watch out!

Weight loss could mean BAD things for my wallet!

Hey, thanks for coming to visit! I've just added a link to your blog and would be honoured if you wanted to link back :)

I'll post instructions on adding links to the WW forums just in case you don't see it here.

Bittersweet is a very good word. It's like plus-sized clothing has a different designer than the rest of the world. I see regular-sized clothing and wonder why they can't make that cute outfit for my size?

I totally get it... I can still conjure up the feelings I had when my mom took me clothes shopping for the new school year... getting to buy jeans and sweaters and shoes... how exciting it was cause it was really the only time of year I got lots of new clothes!

You will definitely be able to buy in *regular* stores by fall - how freaking exciting is that?! I can't wait.... but at the same time I'm sure it will be an adjustment.. I'm used to trying to find hip cute clothing - weeding through all the old fat lady clothes!! - I've even bought maternity clothes at Old Navy cause the shirts are long and loose! I cant wait to just shop like a normal person :)

Tiny Trim, I am so with you on the fall thing too! Although, truth be told I love all seasons, autumn is a special for me. I love Halloween, or Samhain, and then there's the fall harvest festivals, crisp nights and warm sunny days where you can at least breath b/c there's no humidity. Flannel and pumpkin pie spice. Oh ya, tis a wonderful time of year. And let's not forget the kids going back to school. That's a big one in my world, lol.

Blessings, Jordanne
