There are women with big boobs in Italy... WHERE DO YOU BUY BRAS?!!?!!
I'm in a pissy mood because I have to buy a dress. Long ago I learned that I don't shop well under pressure. I got in the habit of buying things I liked when I happened to just stumble upon them. All the planets have to be aligned, the right side of the bed woken up on, the right time of the month... doesn't happen often. I don't worry about it. And I stopped shopping. I've been SO much happier.
But now I have to buy a dress. A solid black tea length dress for my brother's wedding ceremony. Easy enough, right? I've been "keeping an eye out" for this dress for months now. To avoid the whole shopping thing, see? But it hasn't happened. I'm going to have to actually go look for it.
find me, fit me
In Italy, my size is boarderline normal. I'm what they call a 48. This sounds HUGE, right? But translates into a 12 in the US. Still, most stores, if they carry it at all, get only ONE item in this size, so you usually don't find it on the rack. They have to order it. They take your money and then two weeks later tell you that it's no longer available. Grrrrr.
So, wish me luck and sanity. I'm going shopping tomorrow.
