A favour please...

It's gotten to the point where I have to buy more clothes. I'm not at my final weight yet, but there is no way the clothes I have now are going to be able to be worn as I loose more weight.

I'm right for casual stuff though. I've been going through boxes of clothes that I had stored and a lot of them are stuff that fits me now, so they have been going into the wardrobe. Some of the stuff is now too big for me, so that lot has been going into the pile I'm donating to Lifeline.

The problem is the dressier clothes. I've never been much for dressing up, mainly because I've never been comfortable enough with the way I look to make the effort, but now I'm getting to the stage where I am comfortable with my appearance. So, a little bit of an investment in some good clothes (not too much at the moment, I'll do the big shop when I reach my target) sounds like a good idea.

Then it hit me. Why should I buy new clothes here? I'm about to spend two weeks in Melbourne, and Melbourne is the place for clothes in Australia.

So, I'd like to ask a favour of the Melbourne readers (and other people who are going to be down there while I'm there). Can you take me clothes shopping? I don't know where to go, and I don't know what's good and what isn't, so help from natives and/or people who know clothes would be good.

Please?

Plus I value your opinions, so that would help me get used to the fact I'm not as ugly as I seem to think.

I'm not really good with clothes...sorry!

Could take you to Chadstone Shopping Centre or the Discount Factory Outlet in Moorabbin. Not sure on CBD places or other good clothes nexii.

If you have no better offers I'm probably good on Friday evening following ConQuest (but would have to check).

But again, I'm not good with clothes...just ask arienmir

I'd be happy to take you shopping :) We can go to all the direct factory outlets. That way you get some nice clothes without the huge price tag.

Yay!

I arrive the afternoon of Wednesday the 23rd, and leave again on Wednesday the 6th of April. I'm sure we can work out a time in there.

*hugs*

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
