So recently I lost some weight. Which is a good thing. Unfortunately, I have very few clothes that fit me. Pants and skirts keep falling off. My jeans keep falling off and I did not have a belt that could hold them up.
This weekend, I went for clothes shopping. Of course as soon as I told my friend, she wanted to go with me. I told her I needed 2-3 outfits that I could wear in New York. And I did not want expensive clothes since I am planning on losing 10 more pounds.
Since I am planning on going to New York, my theme was black, black, black! Black pants, black dressy shirt and I have a ton of accessories that will go with it.
On the eventful day, I picked up my friend and we went to some inexpensive clothes stores. She has a great fashion sense and picked outfits for me and asked me to try them out. Much to my disappointment, they were grey, grey, grey! All of them! I told her I never wear grey. Perhaps a red dress?
Nope. So I tried the dresses on and they were great! Definitely something I can still wear after I lose some more weight. And she promised me that the construction workers in NY would definitely be whistling at me. Ah OK.
When I came home, I tried the dresses again with tights and boots and accessories. Ha. I have too much time sometimes:) My hubby told me that I was never ever going shopping without my friend A. because the clothes I gravitated towards were "not too trendy". While at first he was surprised that I bought all grey (I don't think I ever wear grey) he loved how I looked in the dresses.
I have to admit, lately, I've been gravitating towards clothes that are shaped like a bag. But... I am ready for a change. A makeover. I am not a granny yet! I am proud of myself regardless of my age and size. I can work it baby!
So... I am thankful for my friends who reintroduced me to fashion. And remind me that you can be beautiful regardless of the size and age.
PS: BG, If you are reading, apparently in NY the trend is to wear simple colors with a ton of accessories. Colorful ones.
Question: Have you ever had a style makeover? Did you like it?
