Here are some pictures of me and hubs at the Halloween party we went to this weekend. I had so much fun wearing this outfit because I normally look like...well, a teacher!
Here's a normal picture for comparison...
And my Halloween get-up
There is a great weight loss story behind this too.........when my husband and I were searching for pants for me to complete the look, I had something very specific in mind. I wanted some kind of black polyester with chrome details...studs, chains, etc. I confidently went to Value village (where I buy most of my clothes anyway) We searched up and down the racks, I was even heading into the 16-18 range out of desperation. (I'm a 12) I had been feeling really fat too, so I kept thinking big.
Anyway, we were just about to give up or compromise for plain black when I started moving down the rack in the other direction. THEN, I found the PERFECT pair of pants. They were/are epic and perfectly suited.
Sadly, I realized that they were size 9! grrr, why do the little girls always get the best outfits?!?! I decided that they were too perfect to pass up, so I'd try them on in hopes that I could modify them somehow (aka, not button them up and hide the mess with a baggy shirt)
to my jaw-dropping shock, they did right up! How did I just put on a pair of size 9s!?!? I have one 9 in my closet and they are my skinny, not lately, don't leave the house in them pants.
The look on my face must have been awesome. Even my husband (who always seems to guess correctly what would fit or not, was surprised!) They are obviously a generous size nine, I can tell they have a little bit of stretch in them, but still, I was so pleased.
So I bought the pants and they suited the costume perfectly....and now I own an epic pair of pants!
