These are my choices?

I feel like my post have been a little on the negative side lately but, I have a bit of a rant.
Jon's company does a pretty nice Christmas party every year. It's one of the few time we get to really dress up and I really enjoy it. So you would think that having lost 60 pounds that it would be fun to shop for a party outfit, But it's not. I'm currently a 16 which is just on the brink of being in the Misses department, but I was extra blessed in the boobs department so the Misses still just doesn't quite do it for me so I'm still stuck shopping in the plus size department. The problem with plus sizes is that they tend to have two styles; old lady clothes or hooker clothes. Why are my only choices either Stretch velvet tops embossed with glitter, or low cut satin and lace that people my size should not be wearing? Usually I have some luck at Lane Bryant but this year is a different story. Is it so much to ask to be able to have a nice flattering shirt with just a bit of bling? I don't even want a dress (which are near impossible to find) this year. I ended up with a shirt from Old Navy. I'm not in love with it but it should look nice at least, and at least Old Navy cloths run big so I can actually fit into something that doesn't have an X in the size.

I promise my next post I will try not to be so ornery.

I'm sorry you're having a hard time finding good clothes, but I think you always look cute! And once again, you are hilarious, I love how you describe things!

Hopefully we can get together soon! We actually came back to the ward last Sunday, but I didn't see you guys like I was hoping too. Dangit.

Congrats on the loss! But you so have one thing right, if you are not a "regular" size you either have to dress like you are 70 years old, or you have to show the world your flab. Can't figure that out!! I also have the added joy of having a long hip line, so "low rise" is not an option! I wish you luck!
