Excerpts from Schlopping

Chapt2-791x1024

“I was a 32 B by the time I bought my first bra and probably needed one much earlier, but I didn’t want to go bra-schlopping with my mom or even tell her about it.”

“We as mother and daughter are completely opposite in our self-mirror-monologues; one avoids looking at herself naked in the mirror and the other loves and thrives on it. We both experienced different dressing room talk with our mothers and received opposing messages about the validity of feeling beautiful.”

“Often people lose weight due to illnesses… so if we tell somebody that she looks fabulous because she lost weight, are we basically telling that person that she is much prettier as a sick woman than as a healthy woman?”

“There seems to be a universal ritual that after buying clothes one comes home and ‘does a fashion show’… the ritual of what you do and with whom you do it, is one that should be cherished and nourished.”

“Going shopping with my grandchildren is not only a way for me to spend time with them but also a way to give them something that they can hold on to and remember me by.”

“Here my father was gravely ill on the other side of the ocean and all I wanted to do was to shop. Somehow it helped alleviate the fears, the terror that I was feeling”

“Am I crazy, I get shopping withdrawal if I don’t buy something or go into a store? There is something about walking the aisles and looking, even if I don’t buy…Perhaps it takes me back to my childhood.”

baglogo

“I felt such a sense of déjà vu, but this time I was not the one trying on clothes, I was the parent gazing at my son in the mirror in clothes that didn’t fit him properly. I think it was the first time I realized how difficult it was for him, in the same way it is for me, to find clothes that fit.”

“When she started to try on a pair…she said “mommy, they don’t feel good.” When the salesman heard this, his comment was, “what does a child this age know, they look nice.”

“When we went wedding dress schlopping I felt a bitter-sweet sensation. On the one hand, it was exciting to see my daughter try on wedding dresses. But on the other hand, I knew that this schlopping trip meant she would not wear The Dress and not continue a family tradition that I had so yearned for her to fulfill.”

“The sewing of the veil was the first creation I made with my hands for my daughter, and I wanted something special from me to her that will stay with her for the rest of her life…yet I felt, true or false, that my Mom would want to take part in it. The conflict was not only about my Mom’s wishes and feelings versus my own, but also what would my daughter want?”
