A Shopping Sunday

I dread shopping. The reason being it is difficult to find stuffs my size. If you don’t already know, I am hobbit sized. I can never get dresses that fits perfectly. They are often too long. A dress that hangs nicely above the knee to normal people will look like a maxi on me >_< Forget about buying shoes. It’s a nightmare to find shoes that fits. My shoes are often a size bigger but I have no choice; it’s either that or go bare-footed. I am size 3 shoe by the way. 

But today.. today is a miracle. I walked into this store because a dress on their window display attracted Darling’s attention. He told me to try it on. I was hesitant knowing that it will look ugly on me as usual but he said no harm trying since it is still early and this is our first stop. 

But before that, let us take a wefie :P
Shopping with the kids

This Ayden was so happy when I put that flower garland head dress on him. He got even happier when he saw himself in the mirror with it. Should I start worrying now? -.-

Cool Fitting Room

And then when I went into their fitting room, I got a little shocked. I thought I accidentally walked into a shower room or something. Not bad eh? Very creative indeed. 

I tried on that dress and surprise, surprise. It fits! I was so happy that I skipped out of the fitting room only to see another dress hanging on their bargain counter. I grabbed that dress and tried it on too and that too fits me nicely. Whoa! I must be on a roll here! But that is as far as it gets. No other dress fits me after that :(


By the way, my dresses are XXS no wonder they fit (the length I mean). But then again, I don’t usually wear XXS lah coz though I am short, I am not skinny. I am chubby. Maybe China people are smaller in size hence their XXS is actually our S? 

Anyway, I tried on my dresses again upon reaching home and feels that they are a tad too fitting. I think I need to shed a kg at least to look better in them coz now I feel like a potato in these dresses. Darn those mirrors in their fitting room. Always so deceiving :(

aviator sunglasses

Oh look at what Ethan did while waiting for the Daddy to pay for my dresses. He took an aviator sunglasses and terus selfie with it. LoL! He looks so much like a FLY with that pair of over-sized aviators! 

So that’s it lah our final Sunday before the school reopens. I am so not looking forward to school days again. Chaos and all the rush. Haiz…

    Really hard to find clothes and shoes your size. For me, it is easier. Average measurement but usually out of stock faster. More average people than those on other extremes. Hehe.

    And, Ethan looks properly like Kamen Rider XD

    CNY clothes hunting? I am the kancheong type, so I will get ready a few months in advance. That means I have started to shop for CNY clothes even before Christmas. Therefore, I ended up with lots of CNY clothes which can easily last me for the whole 15 days of CNY. I am joking, I also bought the same amount of clothes for my two girls. My girls have warned me for not buying any for them as they scare that their clothes will fall off from their wardrobe.
