The must have fashion item of the season and H&M sizing 👗😳. Where is Nordstroms during my fashion 911 or 119 here in 🇨🇳

All my clothes are still in the port of Tianjin at customs. It’s getting colder and I’m getting worried that I just may have to buy new clothes for the cold weather. I’ve been wearing the same 2 pair of jeans 👖 👖and I feel so out of fashion. Unfortunately there is a big gala this weekend  and I don’t have a party dress. So bc of the clothes being locked up and this weekend party I decided to go shopping. In the States I’m about a medium but here I am a size giant. It’s awful. My body type is just alien to all the clothing stores here. Even jewelry! I remember I was looking at gold bangles in HK and the store keeper told me that they only made jewelry to fit Chinese women, so I guess that meant I had thick wrists or something in his opinion. That’s ok though- Chow Tai Fook, liked my wrists and they had the best gold bangles anyway. In Asia, the clothes are just cut very slim. When I was pregnant living in Japan it was the same issue. Buying batik dresses in Jakarta it was also a problem. Today I learned that at China 🇨🇳 H&M I am a size 42 /12US and it’s still very tight. It’s also the largest size they carry in the store. 😳  My love of fashion has just disappeared. I can’t even think about style bc I have to find the right fit first. I also noticed EVERYONE is wearing this brown Burberry-esque trench. I see it on women, men even at my son’s school the little kids wearing this same trench, so popular as if it’s this season’s uniform. I wonder if it’s just a huge trend here or other places as well.  I hope we can get our household shipment soon so I can wear my own winter wear and not need to buy a size 42 H&M trenchcoat. Also just for a comparison, my Chinese size 42 H&M snug 👗 dress is the same as a size 8 🇮🇹 Dolce Gabbana 💃🏻. I wish I had packed that Dolce dress in my checked baggage.

  1. Hey Elisabeth! Took me awhile, but I’m in now! So exciting to see you’re getting your blog going! You doing quite well! 1185 followers! Nice:) How’d you manage that so quickly? I’m glad to see it looks like you’re adjusting and having a fun time in Tianjin. Adjusting to sizes is always difficult when you move abroad. I remember that as well. Your Durian nightmare was funny. Miss you and thinking of you! -Mandy
    P.S. I will send you a link to our travel FB page too so we can share:) Our website is a very slow work in progress but it does exist!
