It's very difficult in a city like Vancouver: the people are beautiful here and are dressed to match. The Vancouver business district, especially the Coal Harbour area, is teeming with perfect women, dressed in their perfect slacks with their perfectly smoothed hair, beautiful dress jackets and fall-fashion boots to match. This morning I must have looked like a disaster: bright yellow rain jacket, gym pants, hiking books and a garbage bag over my bookbag to keep the contents dry. I undress at work and realize that I forgot to bring a bra and have to wear my flashy green lululemon top under my work sweater. Not subtle.
I need to find a place to buy affordable clothing that isn't made in the 1980s that actually fits me. That is the problem with Salvation Army shopping: you rarely find anything that fits and if it does, it was made when Aqua Net was popular. I've been told that H&M has good prices but I'm scared of the huge crowd that is always lingering in that store. I'm looking for some ideas, somewhere specific that I can get pants that will fit me and will last a while all for a good price. You'll be invited to my pants party if you help me out.
