So finally my sister and I got some sisterly time on Monday. We both needed some clothes so we went to Woodfield Mall...which is about 30-45 min away. While there are malls closer to us, this mall is different. It is a multi-level mall full of all the stores of your... well at least of my dreams. Anyway, I assumed that this mall would have clothes for both my sister and I. However, no such luck. Apparently the world no longer has need for maternity clothes. This particular super mall originally had 3 or 4 maternity stores in it, however now has none. Zip. Zero. I was so upset. All the stores that I assumed would have a maternity section didn't. Basically no one is making babies anymore. I mean where are all the pregnant women shopping? One woman told me that my best bet would be to buy clothes online. Online?! I don't want to shop online. This is a new body that I have never shopped for before, and I would like to be able to try things on. Besides, it totally takes away the fun part of shopping.
I can just see it now...my sister and I both bring our laptops to the dinning room table and surf the Internet. Then when we wanted each other's opinions, we could just turn our computers around. This would just take all the fun out of shopping...at least for me.
At any rate, I have decided I feel a little discriminated against, I mean excuse me for continuing the human race...geezz! So I have found a few stores around my house, and I have been forced to search online. I will for sure be holding on to my maternity clothes, just in case they completely eliminate maternity stores when we have our next kid.
