Shop For Me?

weather: cloudy
outside: 11.5°C
mood: drained
Would anyone like to shop for me? I mean clothing shopping.

I've come to accept that I'm very oniophobic. For clothing, mostly.

In that way, Costco is the best. If I could, I'd pick up stuff without even stopping the cart, but I have to park and dig around for a Small or X-Small. Their Smalls used to fit me well, but have been getting bigger and bigger lately, so I always see if there are X-Smalls around.

Finding a bargain is better than paying full price, but I'm so exhausted and drained that I end up wishing I _did_ just fucking pay full price, grabbed what I needed and left. And even when I'm willing to pay full price, it can take me years to find what I need.

So, I want to find someone to shop for me. Someone who loves to shop, of course.

I want to find someone about my size and shape so they can try things on for me.

I want someone who knows what styles and colours I would look good in. I want someone who knows that I prefer things a little more 斯文和秀氣, less trendy, more timeless styles, mix'n'match-able, but I'm open to new ideas and suggestions á là Stacy & Clint.

Bonus if it's someone who regularly flies back and forth between Taiwan or Hong Kong and Vancouver anyway, who could shop on either side of the water. I don't have to have name-brand stuff, I can wear street vendor stuff as long as it's a decent quality, of sane colour and pattern. Stuff from Taiwan or one of those Chinese malls in Richmond is generally less expensive and, more importantly, FITS ME.

I could throw $100 at them every once in a while with a request like "okay, get me some pants" and they'd magically show up at my doorstep a reasonable amount of time later with 3-4 pairs of assorted cute, casual pants and jeans. $200? $500? whatever it takes...

Then the next time, I could say "shirts", "shoes" or "surprise me". And they'd go off and get me whatever I need.

I'd compensate for gas and time on local trips... and whatever else that's reasonable that I hadn't thought of.

*sigh* Si j'avais des millions... Tire tire tire tire tire tire boum...

What an offer!! If only I were closer by, I would be there shopping like mad for you! I've had friends ask me to shop for them - in various places I've lived just because I get a vibe about their clothes style - even if they don't have a clue! Darn, double darn. The challenege of $100 and how many outfits later!

I remember a particular shop I went on that I spent just over $150 and came home with 12 slacks, 5 tops, 2 skirts and a pair of shoes. It was a huge sale of 75% off already marked down clothes at the end of a season. Memories. . .

Good luck!

Maybe it's another uncanny 10/29/74 thing, but I would rather stick forks in my eyes than clothing shop for myself. I end up wearing only black and usually end up owning several pairs of the same tops and pants because I know it looks reasonable and it's comfy. I just don't know what to do with colours and patterns and regularly wish someone would put me on one of those "What Not To Wear" shows.

I love that show too, but they'd never put me on. I'm too heavy and they've NEVER had anyone who wears a 20/22 that I know of. *sigh* If only. ;)

I fear it for a different reason. They would undoubtedly put me in less jeans and snarky t-shirts and more heels.
