I totally did stuff OMG pride...  
It must be the Jack+Sally undies.

Anyway, I updated BOTH herbert_west and the_thinman... I've been neglecting the Thin Man because he's so damn hard to write the way I chose to write him... every entry has to start with a Biblical quote. >_< *pats her green Gideon's Bible and her Bible reference book* But, yeah. I still need to go back and write entries for some of the early challenges for him. But right now I'm just pleased that he finally answered a question.

Aaaaand... I went to the counselor. Then to Gabriel Brothers. >_< Having those offices right next to Gabe's must be criminal... so distracting. But I bought a t-shirt that says "Smile! It confuses people" and has a monkey on it and is awfully tight, a goth-y black top with white stitching that is incentive to lose weight, and a CHEMISE! I think that's how you spell it. Well, it's red with black lacy flowers and it sort of fits... um. But! Lingerie. My first nice piece. And cheap as all get out. :D

Okay, quick clothes rant coming...

Clothes do not fit me. Large (or extra-large, depending on the brand) girly shirts tend to fit fine in the tummy area, but then my over-sized breasts (and when did designers decide a 36/38 C was "oversize?") and shoulders throw everything off. And when I start to go into the extra-large and plus sizes, the shoulders might fit better but then there's too much material around my stomach, which looks sloppy and ungood. >_< !!! And don't get me started on girl's pants. My thighs are disproportionally large (damn muscles! In my arms too) so girl pants that fit in the hips and waist tend to make my thighs look... puffy. So what I generally wear are boy pants that are waaaaaay too big. I had one pair of girly dress pants that I liked... and now they're too big. *whine* I wish I had a shrinking ray or something. </ clothesrant>

Although I have noticed that porn star girls never look good in clothes. Girls who are too skinny look good in clothes; the women of Penthouse and Playboy look waaaaay better nekkid. So... I could be a porn star! :D Or... no, probably not.

Then this evening went to Borders with dad. the haul was: new Get Fuzzy book, Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time, Veronika Decides to Die by Paulo Coelho, and a reallyreallyreally orange and soft stuffed Halloween cat that was half off yay. :D I had a good day.

Clothes do not fit me either. Girly shirts fit me fine in the stomach area, but they draw attention to the fact that I have no breasts (I'm a thirty-two B; dear god in heaven do you know how hard it is to find a nice dress that you can actually hold up when you've got nothin' at all ridin' up top?!). I'm a small to an extra-small in tops, and a medium to a large in skirts and pants because of my CHILDBEARING HIPS OF DOOM. Goddammit, I don't want kids, I do not need these hips from hell! So consequently, the waists on all my skirts and pants are far too big and hang far too low on my hips. Belts don't work because they bunch up the fabric and draw attention to the fact that my hips are huge so I just end up hitching my bottoms up all night long like a hobo might. *shudders* Now all my stuff is far too big because I keep losing weight EVEN THOUGH I EAT LIKE A HIPPO. I was happy at one forty five; no more of this one-oh-five shit! I LOOK LIKE AN ALIEN! *goes into a hysterical fit and collapses*

...but you're right; porn stars never look lovely clothed. But hey, I'm not complaining about beautiful naked women!

Re:
See, the reason I've begun to like girly shirts is that they show off the fact that I have decent boobs and a smaller stomach. But if there is too much or too little material in the stomach area, the effect is ruined! Ruined, I say!

dear god in heaven do you know how hard it is to find a nice dress that you can actually hold up when you've got nothin' at all ridin' up top?!

Nope, actually, I don't. :P But remember... you could always be a AA or a DD. The extremes tend to be way more bitter.

so I just end up hitching my bottoms up all night long like a hobo might.

Yes! That's exactly how I usually am. Men's pants are always too big in the waist, since you have to buy them to fit over your hips... and then all of my pants are also a size or two too big. I can panty flash in jeans. >_<

no more of this one-oh-five shit!

That is very skinny. I'm sorry. *pets* But then... society finds the other extreme to generally be worse...

But hey, I'm not complaining about beautiful naked women!

Heck, neither am I! But even Crispin's Alexa looks awkward in clothes... >_> Just take 'em off and show us the curves!

Ah, I know of which you speak. I'm a 38D with loose measurements around 46-33-45, a barrel ribcage, and shoulders like a linebacker (thanks to some heavy-duty German genes - damn my northern European heritage!). Everything that fits my waist gapes over my chest, and everything that fits my chest and shoulders just hangs elsewhere so I look like a sausage.

Right now, I'm trying to figure out a way to switch all my normal clothes to harem pants, long skirts, and loose shirts. Middle Eastern clothing is supposed to be loose. It's also comfortable as Hell. I'd rather be comfortable than fashionable (says the woman who's barely left the house in months).

Best piece of lingerie I ever bought was a $5-on-clearance chemise from Wal-Mart. It's dark blue stretch velvet with brown flowers (which explains why it was on sale) and almost as comfortable as proper clothes. (Now if I could just find some lingerie that covers me from neck to toe, thus defeating the point, not that I'd care...)

Sounds like you have the same problems with clothes as I do. Shirts especially - they either look slobby or are so tight across the chest that I get the dreaded uniboob look - and I'm just barely a 36C. Shoulders are bad too - mine are bigger, but apparently not as out-of-proportion with my body as designers think my boobs are, so if something fits my shoulders, it's still too tight on my boobs.

Fitting into clothes is a bitch.

Anyway, I'm glad that you did stuff and that it was a good day.

I have big thighs, too! I like the cargo pants, and the ones that are tight around the butt, then are sort of loose from there. The cargos are like that, and this really cute pair of pants I got from Target. They are perfect! They're really loose from the bum down, and my thighs look tiny in them. They generally end up being dress pants, though.

Ooh, I like your monkey shirt!

And yeah, what's up with clothes not fitting?? Clothes never really seem to be made with the bodies of real women in mind. I wear a lot of simple cotton-lycra clothes, but I'd like more and better stuff.
