I'm a Mom wanting to stay stylish in Fall Fashions-FTF Friday

Fall Fashion is full of great sweaters, stylish jeans, and sassy boots! I started looking for new sweaters a few weeks ago and found some great ones from Old Navy that were $15 a piece online! I tried them on in the store, then bought them online. When they got here, I thought nothing of them until last night when I was getting ready to go out. I tried a green one on (they say redheads look great in green!) and found it didn't fit as well as I thought...I looked like this:

Damn! I took both sweaters back and would like to find some new ones that hug all of my curves perfectly! Is it even possible? Do I have to spend more money than I have just to find a few nice sweaters for fall and winter? I guess my quest continues.

So what I am saying is I was able to Fight The Frump by Fighting the Muffin Top, and returning those sweaters. I could have kept wearing them, and pretended I didn't even notice the bulges.That was a bit depressing having to take them back but my search for the perfect sweater will well as my mission to stay stylish and un-frumpy!

My brain must really not be working correctly, because until you explained the picture I did not get it. Good luck with the sweater hunt. I love sweaters too bad I won't really be able to wear any early in the winter.

Try Kohls. They always have awesome sales. (They are having a big one this Saturday - maybe you could run over after soccer.)

I'm with Kate. I get most of mine at Kohls. They say that a nice long button cardigan is back in this year! You can wear it with jeans, slacks, skirts or as a dress! I love options! Must get it from my mom.

Ugh. Do not look forward to sweaters and coats and all that stuff! Hang in there - you WILL find that perfect sweater and, when you do, buy one in every color :-).
