I dislike shopping. Despise it, actually. So I’ve learned to use a couple of internet stores that have clothing designed for women like me, women with more to love.
Only they don’t have any models like me, who are less than five feet tall.
So in order to try to be stylish, I have to check the overall length of each garment. Dresses that fit the typical model just below the knee will be just below the floor on me. Sometimes hems are easily altered, but sometimes it’s just not possible without changing the entire look of the dress.
Pants are a nightmare. Most of my lack of height is because I have stumps instead of legs. So I look for capri-length pants, or pants that, when I whack of the length, don’t look like I whacked off the length.
Remember the dwarf Dopey in Snow White?
Yup, that’s me. Sleeves too long, pants too long. But he’s happy, so I guess it’s okay 🙂
I remember muttering to myself once that my trying to make my stumpy, lumpy body look stylish was like trying to make a potato look sexy. My very patient husband says, “What’s wrong with potatoes? I like potatoes.”
And maybe that’s why we’ve been married for 47 years.
