Just one more thing.....

Isn't it funny how 'plus sized' departments or ranges in shops are called such utterly patronising things!

Like 'Inspire' at New Look...or Nouveau Regarde as I like to call it...INSPIRE?? Like, what's that about? Should I be 'Inspired' to lose weight and therefore not shop any longer in your poxy plus sized section and aspire to wear the 'normal sized clothes? Or perhaps i should be 'Inspired' by the wonderful fashions on offer to me in this section?

Either way it completely sucks. It's insulting! It's segregation! Just put all the clothes together you doofuses!

The vain cow in me feels it necessary at this juncture to point out that I am a size 12/14 and don't shop in the 'plus sized' dept.....just FYI. It was merely something I was thinking about earlier.....

Your entry today made me smile. I remember the exact day when I walked into Lane Bryant (plus size store) and put on the smallest size they had...and it hung on me. I had to put it back on the rack and venture into the mall of unkown. It was such an awesome feeling yet I was scared out of my mind. I had no clue how to shop at any other store that didn't have a plus size section. I havne't gotten used to shopping at "regular" stores yet. Totally mind blowing!

I can't figure out how to email you, but can I ask your name so I can say hi to you once in a while?
