I’ve Been Wearing the Wrong Clothes All my Life!

“A good friend shields you from the storm.” – Chinese proverb


Thank goodness for friends. So apparently, I’ve been dressing in the wrong size for decades. This is what happens when you don’t have any sisters…and you demonstrate a penchant for wearing free T-shirts and loose jeans in your high school years. Anyway, I needed to spruce up my wardrobe for an interview on a local cable channel show, so I asked my friends for advice. I experienced several days of clothing hurricanes; a storm of blazers, cardigans, tank tops, pants, and skirts pelted me. Conversations like the following occurred:

Me: “Are these pants too tight?”
Friend: “Um, no. They’re supposed to fit snugly around your legs.”

Friend: “Oh, I never knew you were this size!”

What did I end up wearing after my fashion makeover? A red cardigan over a white tank top, paired with a black and white houndstooth skirt. If you really want to see the outfit, then you’ll have to watch the episode when it airs on Torrance CitiCABLE 3. I’ll also provide a link to the Youtube video, so look out for it over the next few weeks.

  1. Nice shieldeage! Lol. I know the clothes hurricane all too well, and always resort to a skirt when the slacks get a bit too tight, (or in my case, too sausage-y) Looking forward to the interview. :)

  2. Looking forward to the youtube video. I don’t jave any sisters too so I rely on magazines or manikins at stores.

    • I used to look at magazines, too, but no matter how hard I try I can never look quite as nice. (It’s funny that you mentioned mannequins because some of the outfits I tried on were based on what those life-sized dolls were wearing in the store.)
