Where to buy Long shirts or tunics?


Recommended Posts

My first 10 pound weight loss is coming up and I'd promised myself a new shirt. I want one long enough to cover my bottom or at least half of my bottom. I want it washable - no dry clean or special handling. And I want it nice casual - ie. I can wear it with jeans but still feel like I'm not being dumpy. Any good brands or stores that carry shirts like this? (I hate to clothes shop since I always feel so depressed about my weight when I do, so I don't really know where to look for things.) I saw a really nice one on a Muslim woman the other day but was too embarrassed to run after her to ask her where she got it.

I find tunics at Kohls and buy tall shirts from Old Navy or Gap. I'm only 5'7", but I find that most regular shirts expose my back if I raise my arms. Really, if you buy anything called a tunic it should be the length you need. :) I bought some cute ones at Kohls last week that can be dressed up or down.

I wish you could go with me.:)

 

Awwww, thanks! I wish I could go with you too! I am sure that your dh is happy I am not going with you.;)

 

A month or so ago, I took dd11 to Plato's Closet (consignment shop) to get her 'a couple of pair of shorts for day camp.' Well, $600+ later, we were finished shopping. Do you know how much you can get at Plato's Closet with $600? ALOT!!!!! I mean, Banana Republic shorts for her for $2.00!!!!!!!! Well, I mean, how can you not buy EVERY.SINGLE.PAIR.THAT.THEY.HAVE?

 

My dh has learned that whatever he thinks something would reasonably cost, he needs to add at least two zeros to it.:lol::lol:

Who wouldn't be flattered to be asked where she got something? I say, next time, JUST DO IT and ask her! :)

 

I like longer shirts too, but they go in and out of style. A few years back, Indian style stuff was "in" and I found a few great ones at Macy's.

 

p.s. I just got tons of kids' clothes at JCPenney for $1.50 each.
