distraction

In which I am a girl

This weekend was the second and final instalment of Fix Tats' Wardrobe With New(old) Stuff. It went as well as could be expected, and included the purchase of 2 tops, a pair of shorts, a skirt and a dress. And also two hats but they weren't for me.

I also nearly bought a skeleton onesie, but thought better of it.

And I totally failed at buying plain black outdoor pants. I went to every shop in town and not one had a pair in a style and fit I liked. Also, wtf US sizing? I have no frame of reference for this but apparently I am a sort of size 4. 4!!??!! What does that even mean? Well apparently it means American women have no arse or a big waist or are built like boys. Either that or they have none of these things and US women have just as much trouble finding pants that fit as I do. Anyway, pants fail. I will try Australia when we're over there for the festival. Maybe their clothes acknowledge that women go out at the hips and in at the waist.

Fie.
