Friends and Fashion

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?

Which one is you in that picture? I have not had a style makeover but I could sure use one!

Of course I am reading...and like Midwest Mommy...which one is you in the picture? My guess is the girl in the middle...
anyways, I need a makeover too. London did it for me...I need some greys and blacks myself...
I can't wait to get back to the US at Christmastime and do some major shopping! (well, don't tell my hubby I just said that, hahaha!)

Thanks for thinking of me....boy, I'd like to go shopping with you too!
I know, let's get a few black/grey outfits and meet in London sometime soon :)

BG: Our comments crossed:) I was on your blog. Makeovers are fun! I feel like I had let myself "go". Of course I will be shopping for clothes in NY and keep you posted. The wonderful thing about NY is that you can find clothes there that you can never ever find anywhere. And I always buy inexpensive clothes. You can get gorgeous dresses and dress shirts for about 10-20 dollars. It is really great! I'll post some photos:)

1) So good to see you!

2) Congratulations on the weight loss!

3) I only had a makeover once in my life because I wear very little in the way of cosmetics.

I from time to time buy stuff I usually never would wear.
And it feels good.
I am not very stylish, but sometimes I land a hit ;)

Glad for you that you lost all that weight!
And glad you feel good about yourself!
