Shopping, So to Speak

Occasionally there are people who think that I’m not being truthful when I tell them that when I go shopping for women’s clothing, I’m usually dressed as a woman. So the last time I went out—which happened to be yesterday, I made a point of snapping a few pictures with my cell phone. (It’s quite obvious that I have not perfected the art of self portraits with my cell phone.) All the pictures were taken from inside the women’s changing room at Winner’s store in Toronto. It was my day off, so I drove to the nearest Winner’s store, which was only a couple of minutes drive away, parked my car, and went inside. Everything at Winner’s is on racks, and often it’s quite a daunting task to pick out what I want amidst tonnes of clothes that I’ll never be caught dead wearing. In any case, I tried out a few pieces that looked nice on the racks. What I was really concerned with was how they looked on my rack! There was a yellow top (not flattering), a blue top (less unflattering, but not good enough), a blue skirt (flattering but was made of very cheap fabric) and a blue dress on clearance (made me look fat). As always, once I have picked out what I wanted to try on, I’ll walk to the changing rooms, and a lady to show me to my room. At the end, I didn’t buy anything there, which is typical for most of my shopping trips, but may be I’ll give the blue top a second look.  I have uploaded some of the pictures to my web space already, and may be I’ll think about bringing my camera the next time I try out clothes at stores.
