Buying clothes at Frenchie's

I love buying clothes at second hand stores, but I usually have a hard time finding clothes that fit. I'm 5'5 but have short legs, chubby middle, and a bust line that needs a x-large. I found an Anne Taylor Loft scoop neck sweater last week for 2 or 3 dollars. I washed it ovee the week-end and wore it today, this a blouse underneath. It looks really good. In the fall I found a black Anne Taylor loft turtleneck sweater for 5.00 and I wear it once a week.

I need to find a pair of jeans at a second hand store this week, as my only pair without paint now has holes on the inner thighs. Sigh...

I'm thinking of some new ideas to incorperate into my life for April, May and June. I'll post on them when I have a more concrete plan of action!

Sounds like you and I are built remarkably similarly!

I love getting my clothes second-hand. I don't see much point in spending $20 for a t-shirt when I can spend $5 and get one that will last me almost as long. Or just as long, sometimes, if it's been really gently worn!

I got my jeans today for a grand total of 4.80. Yahoo!

we have a very similar build. im only 4'11 and have a very short inseam. i know this is a crazy tip but I try to check cropped pants in the spring/summer. I find I can wear them as pants throughout the year. its very hard to find pjs in sets though since i need very short pants and a x large top.
