Or Why I Never Shop in Department Stores

It's true, I hate shopping. I haven't purchased clothing since well before Satch was born. I repair before I re-purchase. But recently (after I sold a watch that I never wear) I realized that I honestly needed a few warm pieces and one summer top, so I called my favorite haunt.
  • because when you shop there, they remember you
  • because they're not afraid to say, "no, that doesn't look good on you"
  • because the garments are well made & comfortable
  • because the pieces are gorgeous & timeless
  • because they're machine washable (even the silk)
  • because a new purchase will always go with pieces from prior seasons a/o years like garanimals for adults
  • because the sales are real sales (I used to be the first one at the door for the day after xmas sale when everything was marked down to $20. It was my ritual and the only time I purchased clothing. I miss my hood and my peeps)
Thank you, SoHo, for keeping me warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and stylin' year round!

You hadn't bought clothes since before Satch was born? I wish I could say the same. I have been quite the materialist lately. I'll have to think of you the next time I get the urge to shop. And, I know what you mean about garanimals. I like all of my clothes to match too!

I hate shopping for clothes in France! All of those skinny femmes with supercilious smiles and "I'm sorry Madame, we have nothing large enough for you" and I am a UK size 12, ok a 14, on a good day!
Still, I have two wardrobes, pre-children (20 years old) and post children, ie sacks and shapeless skirts.
Vive la France
Vive la Femme plus grande!
