Why is it assumed by clothing manufacturers that just because a person is pregnant that they want to spend a lot of money to wear something that looks like it best belongs on a clown? I'm not in need of maternity clothes yet, but as infrequently as I go clothes shopping I had some time the other night so I thought I would look. What I found appalled me. At least 90% of the clothes would look much better on a clown, than me. The only "normal" looking clothes were t-shirts which I probably won't be able to wear to work. I have only recently begun my search, and I'm hoping that the stores I've visited aren't an overall representation of what all is out there. My second complaint....clothes that will be worn for a maximum of six months, I'm not paying $40-$50 for one piece of clothing. For that matter, unless it is a pair of boots, I don't think I'd pay that much for a single piece of clothing even if I could wear it for the rest of my life. Needless to say, I left my shopping endeavor the other night with determination that garage sales are good. I have absolutely no problem buying clothes from garage sales to wear, if I can ever find any that look more attractive than Bozo the clown's wardrobe.
