Anna Scholz sample sale joy!
The sample sale was really fun, not just because I got lots of clothes but because there was such a lovely atmosphere there. Anna's staff were lovely and helpful, her dog was so cute I wanted to steal her, and all the customers were so excited and friendly. I tried on some things that were too big or small, then passed them on to other ladies I saw eyeing them up, and they did the same for me. We all gave each other our opinions on how the clothes looked / fitted, and suggested what would look good on each other. There was a communal changing room, and I loved how unabashed all the ladies were about getting changed in front of each other. I've always been a naked person, I've never been embarrassed about getting semi-naked (or even totally naked) in front of other women, despite the fact that we can be so judgemental about each others bodies. Interestingly though, many of my slim friends (size 10 / 12 / 14) are really uncomfortable getting changed in front of other people. How refreshing to see so many big, happy, proud ladies today!
I'm off now to eat, drink and be merry while watching some awesome fireworks!
