The Golden Girls are my besties.

It’s finally warm, I’m on my computer all day, and I like a bargain.

Obviously, this means I’ve been online shopping for summer clothes.

I’ve been trying to explore new shopping frontiers and break out of my fashion rut. While always serviceable, my Gap t-shirt and 8-year-old skirt combo is going to fail me at some point. I recognize that I need to possibly consider maybe trying some different fashions. Or anything that’s fashionable at all. I should definitely get outfits that can’t be described as “serviceable.”

So, I’m trying to branch out. And I know a 38-year-old woman should know better than to peruse Forever 21. But I did. But I didn’t find anything for myself. But I did find some things my friends would love.

Yes. Thank you for being a friend, Rose, Blanche, Dorothy, and Sophia.

Traveling down the road and back again, I discovered that while Forever 21 caters to the fake-ID crowd, it also offers styles eerily reminiscent of 1989 Miami.

Just try to tell me that Rose Nylund wouldn’t love this sweatshirt.

Sure, the model is clearly embarrassed. But Rose would totally wear this to the Senior Center Rodeo Night!

And Blanche would clearly love this pantsuit. Picture it with kitten heels and a glittery clutch, and Ms. Devereaux is ready for a casual date night!

Seriously – these shoes are orthopedic numbers that even Sophia would abhor.

I found a little something for everyone’s favorite betuniced Golden Girl. Dorothy Zbornak, this long cardi is for you.

Let us be clear: Dorothy would tell this girl she looked like a Tijuana tramp. But the cardigan? Well …

As for Sophia? Well, there was really only 1 choice.

I’m pretty sure this is the only appropriate attire for “accidentally” setting fire to Shady Pines.

Sometimes, it’s just easier to shop for other people.

    It is hard to find clothes for adults, but try actually having a tween and needing to choose things from stores like that! The selection at most of the stores for juniors is jaw-dropping awful!

    My own personal shopping requirements are just that the clothes be comfortable 🙂

    Cracking up here — and missing those Golden Girls.
    I've embraced my middle age (granted, I've got a decade on you) and shop at Dress Barn.
