With great weight loss, comes an intense interest in fashion. Hell, I just purchased my first Vogue – ever. What’s happening to me?
Simple: It’s the first time I can actually picture myself wearing outfits that don’t come from Lane Bryant. Not that I’m knocking LB. It’s treated me amazingly well all these years. It just would be nice to walk into a department store *cough* Macy’s *cough* and be able to try something on. Well that day is coming.
Right now I just window shop as I’m keeping a very lean closet. I’ve got 113 lbs. to go before I invest in a full wardrobe so no need to go crazy shopping…yet.
During my adventure in Texas, I splurged a little on some accessories. My sister introduced me to the Sam Moon, an amazing store that is impossible to leave without buying something. Purses, jewelry, hats, scarfs, and flip-flops – they have it all.
I ended up buying 4 pairs of flip-flops and had to ship them back to Virginia. Well they arrived and look more fabulous than I remember.
OK, Confession Time
I picked up some purses too. This is huge for me as I’ve never owned more than one purse at a time. Sigh…yes, I’m lame. It just seemed like a pain to move things from one purse to another. Well it is, but now I know looking fabulous makes up for the hassle.
