I know I did a journal like this way back where I talked about my shopping likes.
Today, I want to talk about the stuff I actually shop FOR and how I feel about each. We coo about that? waits for a bit...then nods Good.
Jeans---Love them, particularly the Gloria Vanderbilt line of jeans from Kohl's. They fit me very well, show off my backside quite well and actually make me feel sexy (a truly rare thing, thus it is treasured).
Tunic-style tops---I do like these too, mostly because they offer good coverage without being baggy. Think like a cozy, more elegant sweatshirt.
Leggings---LOVE THEM! Talk about cozy! And snug! And so many colors! happysquees
Tops in general---I do like to wear soft-feeling tops. I also prefer patterns. Animal-print...flowery prints...so nice and soothing.
Bras---Honestly, I need to start wearing them more. I have a few, but I tend not to use them due to...well, laziness actually. Also they tend to kinda show under my work shirts. I have tried some front-closing bras, but the front closure doesn't want to rest against my chest properly.
Panties----I have too many pairs. Need to do a culling -.-
Tights/hose---See "Panties" -.-
Dresses---I do own quite a few. One of my favorites is one I have had for...hmm...thinks....maybe 15 years now? I bought it back in 2002, I think. The company that made it has disappeared. Here's a link to the dress: http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m251/R-A-Blackpaws/Female%20Things/Darkgreendress.jpg
Skirts---I do enjoy shopping for these. I tend to like either pleated ones or pencil skirts, but I do own a maxi skirt. Haven't worn it yet, but I do own one.
Shoes/boots---I currently own about 20 pairs of shoes. Mainly though, I have maybe three pairs I wear regularly. I want to try the legging-tall boot trend I keep seeing around campus...but I have thick calves, so boots don't always fit. -.-
Accessories---I do own some jewelry. A few necklaces, a couple of rings and several pairs of clip-on earrings. Can always use more, but I just haven't found any that said, "I would look great on you".

No, they don't ACTUALLY talk. It's more of a feel/vibration thing.
Perfume---I have a little bit of perfume. Some Katy Perry "Purr" and some Victoria's Secret "Victoria". Haven't used them yet.
Now, the part that is a little rough to talk about:
See, while I like shopping for clothes, there are some that I sadly don't wear. And there's a simple reason: confidence.
Case in point: skirts. I just don't feel comfortable or confident in them. Honestly...I feel VERY vulnerable in them.
I'm much more comfortable in a dress than I am in a skirt...which, on the surface seems a bit odd, since a dress is more blatantly feminine...but it;'s true. I feel less vulnerable in a dress than I do a skirt.
Not sure why that really is. Any thoughts?
