I don't follow the fashion trends usually. I buy what I like and what I think looks good on me. I don't hardly get excited about clothes, but when I started noticing that a lot of shirts and dresses were quite loose in the middle area, I was secretly jumping up and down. Yes!! Finally a trend where you can wear fat clothes and be cool about it. I suppose this kind of clothing makes anybody just over their BMI look pregnant, but I didn't care, because it meant I could eat another piece of cake.
And then someone at work thought I was pregnant. That was last December. Today, somebody else at work thought I was pregnant too. I'm starting to really hate this fashion trend!
When has it become OK for people at work to congratulate you on being pregnant, when you're not!, before you make any kind of announcement? I mean it has happened twice to me and twice when I wore tops that were a bit loose towards the bottom. Am I just not allowed to wear these kinds of clothes? Can only size 2's wear these and not be asked when they are expecting?? This is seriously not fair.
I'd never thought I'd say this but I totally feel for celebs. Every time these women are bloated and wearing either a really loose top, or even a really tight one, there are headlines the next day: Expecting?! Bun in the oven?! Grrrrrr. Not fair. I want my Thanksgiving pants! I want my loose fitting clothes. Why do only thin people get to wear it and not be asked if they're pregnant?!
I hate my job. Thank god I'm leaving!!!
