I'm currently wearing a size large teal cami under a size small black sweater, with a formerly-size-8-now-hemmed-in-a-bit jean skirt (over tights & purple flats).
I have Old Navy jeans in size 6 that are looser than my GAP size 8's.
I have skirts from H&M in size 10.
I have skirts from Target in size small and medium.
I have shirts from all over in smalls, mediums, and larges.
They all fit.
I know Stacey & Clinton repeat "Don't look at the number, just go for fit!" on a regular basis, but let's be honest here: I have a lot more swing in my step knowing I'm rawking my size 6 jeans and a size small shirt than when I'm wearing a large shirt with a size 10 skirt.
Here is what I wish: I wish that there were NO NUMBERS. Well, that's not true. I wish that all clothes work like panty hose sizes -- you look at the graph on the back, find the corresponding area for your height and weight, and BOOM YAY!
O'course, then we'd all have be approximately the same size. Which I realize is impossible, and boring. But there's got to be some compromise, right? I love H&M clothes, but I'm 1-2 sizes bigger with them than with Target. Which is not fun.
So, clothing industry: if you're going to group us into even numbers and smalls, mediums, and larges, at least give a girl some consistency. (And while we're at it, I'd like to be a size 6 on bottom (or smaller!) and size small on top. Though with my boobs, I know that's not really possible. So I'll settle for medium. Okay? Okay. KISSES, Nanny.)
