As the economic recession dissolves into more of a depression and as Thanksgiving quickly approaches, I am thankful for more and more of the seemingly small things.
Fashion-wise, I am thankful for warm clothes, comfortable shoes, a sturdy handbag, tailored pants, a well-fitted bra, and t-shirts. I also am grateful for snuggly sweaters and socks without holes in them. I appreciate tights that don't snag the first time I put them on, high-waisted skirts that hide my sometimes bloated tummy, and baggy, bedtime sweatpants. I realize that sweaters that don't pill, heels that feel like flats, and stretchy jeans are all gems to come by. It's amazing how we take the clothes on our backs for granted.
However, grateful or not, there are things that I can do without, like biking shorts that make me self-conscious, thongs, spandex, tube tops, and stirrup pants.
