ALL I WANT IS A REASONABLY-PRICED PINSTRIPE SUIT THAT REACHES MY WRISTS AND ANKLES... Going over them would be better! I hate all of you short people! Argh!!!! I never, ever ever can buy anything long-sleeved because it's without fail too short on me. If I want something that is long enough, I will have to go to a women's tall store, which means that I will be paying 3x as much. >.< ARGH! Because I'm tall doesn't mean that I'm rich! WAH! I wanna cry!

On the other hand.. haha, capris look really good on me! XD On the other other hand, I can't wear short cute skirts. >.< On the other other hand, I can't buy normal jeans.. only the ones marked "tall". >.< You sucky sucky short people! Argh! T_T

*goes and cries all alone that the cute clothes won't fit her*

Anyways.. obviously, I went shopping today, with kawaii_gurl. ^^ I was looking for a pantsuit or skirtsuit for graduation and for my NOVA interview (2 for the price of one! ^.^). I want something fairly nice, and I found the most amazing pinstripe suit (just gorgeous.. and the cut and the fit was gorgerous, plus it was on clearance), but the sleeves and pants were an inch or so too short. It looked tacky. I'm forever plagued for this. >.> I found some dresses that I like (turns out I really like some of the 60's styles), so I might have to settle for those... but if I can, I REALLY want a pinstripe suit for graduation. Val got a really cute pinstripe skirtsuit... ahh, it was awesome on her!

Ahh... guess I'm stuck with spending WAY too much on clothing. >.>............. T_T Oh, and did I mention I can't wear high heels? ^^;; I'm already too tall. X_x Oh but on the plus side... my dress size has gone down! ^_^ I'm a nice 7-8 right now. ^^ Yay!

Clothes don't fit me coz they're always TOO BIG! x_X Or ill fitting! Too fat, but too short as well! (I'm a fat 8 8-p)
There are never any size 8s on sale! They're always gone... and some lines don't even go that far down... and Australia is thinking of changing the sizing system so my size and below doesn't exists anymore! O___O

*huggles* You, I have sympathy for. *huggles* Why in the world would they change the system so your size doesn't exist? That's insane! O_o

The current sizes are based on an old clothing measurement survey conducted in the 20's or very very very long ago. Since then, the average size is now a 12/14. There have been calls to redo the sizes of clothes now, which I'm all for. What i'm not for is making a 10 the average size by making the current size 14 renamed to 10, and then get this, REMOVE the bottom two sizes. Since our lowest size is a 6, and I'm an 8, under this system, the size 2 and 4 would be removed... meaning my size. Which is, yes, INSANE!!!! >_>

Hey, short people have just as hard a time as you tall people. :p So there.

...If it makes you feel better, I can't find good fitting jeans either. They're always too short or too long for me. I ALWAYS have to hem them. Mrr..
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on May 30th, 2004 09:04 pm (UTC)
At least you can hem them.. It's a lot easier to cut off fabric than make it appear out of thin air. >.

Hehe, I'd always have the opposite problem in the states and sleeves and pants legs would be too long. I finally bought a pair of pants in Japan that actually are the right length for my legs. *blinks incredulously*
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on May 30th, 2004 09:06 pm (UTC)
LOL Oh man.. I can only imagine the problems that I'm going to have in Japan. ^_^;;; Wah! I still say that short people have it a lot easier, because at least they can hem things.. I can't make them longer. >.>

(Crow possesses a status weakness against girls in pinstripe suits.)


Ka... kawaii...

... che. At least you don't live in Vermont. There are NEVER any clothes big enough for meeee.... T___T And to accentuate this, I've actually had to wear *maternity* shirts, because the friggin' large won't go over my chest and shoulders... >_<

And pants. Hell. We don't start there... >_< We have to travel four hours to find a store that sells pants that can fit me. ;.;
