Putting out the call-Size Small and size 4-6 [Jul. 23rd, 2008|09:27 am]
[Current Mood |hopefulhopeful]

I am about the size of a joke right now. I have spent my budget for new clothes almost entirely on work appropriate clothes. I could use a few fun things in case I ever feel good enough to go out. I own one miniskirt that fits.

If you can loan a girl some clothes in this size, I will return them once I gain the 10-15lbs I'm trying to gain this year.

I have a bag of small stuff, jeans are a size 1 though.. but lots of tops that should fit you.

Hopefully those jeans won't fit! Whoa teeny. I need a few tops that are "fun". All I bought were "work appropriate" because I didn't have the budget for both right now.

How I wish I had ever been that size! I debuted into adult sizes in Lane Bryant, way back in the day. The size 8 I can fit into right now is the smallest adult size I've ever worn. Ever. Dress and now trousers, so it's somewhat legit.

Please don't be offended if you've done this and I'm stating the obvious, but have you tried thrift stores? I've picked up sequin tops for $2.99 (White House/Black Market, too, so good stuff), party dresses for five or six dollars, and so forth. Corsets can often be found in the lingerie section, and therefore are priced at just a couple of dollars, too.

I have, but the stuff nearby isn't very cute or organized, so I didn't really score at the thrift store. I prefer "new but cheap" partly because it smells better.

Everything I buy second-hand, even if it has tags, goes into the laundry, gets Dry-eled, or goes to the cleaners if the things I can do myself aren't options. There is so much damage to my nose and sinuses that I have very little sense of smell, so I'm actually overly cautious.

But I'm sure if I had the resources to invest in first hand stuff I would do that instead!

Also, I do realize that the quality of what you find at the thrift store really seems to depend on where the thrift store is located. I live close to (but not in) some upscale neighborhoods and a major university, so there are usually extremely nice, little worn (or even never worn) items in the stores around here. I've been to stores that are located in economically disadvantaged areas, and the selection in those, even if they are much larger stores, tends to be much poorer. Which is all to say I'm lucky!

I hear ya on that. At my local thrift stores, the stuff is so insanely disorganized, disheveled, and cruddy looking. I just do not have the patience to spend all day sifting through crap and guessing at sizes, hoping to find that golden needle in the haystack.
