My New Problem With Clothes Shopping
Tuesday, March 30, 2010
...is that almost everything I try on looks great! I'm starting to fit into size 8's, and I've never had so many options before--normally, if I tried something on and it looked good at all, I would buy it, because I could never find much that did look good, and most of the time I would have to settle for something that looked just okay...
But now, I can go into Ross, pick up several different dresses off the rack, and they all end up fitting and looking incredible! Today I found so many things that I ended up having to put most of it back because I couldn't afford all of it...
So now I have to relearn shopping, I guess. It's a totally different game when you actually have to choose between several options based not on which one fits but which one you like the most...I guess I might even have to develop a more defined sense of personal style ^_^
Anyway, today I did buy a top, a dress, sandles, and new sunglasses...the dress is kind of 60's inspired and very close fitting, pair it with the sandles and the sunglasses and I think it makes me look like some sort of 1960's movie starlett...anyway, love it! I think that's what I'm going to wear to my grandmother's Easter brunch...when you're losing weight you've got to love events where you haven't seen people in a while, so everyone can notice how great you look all of the sudden ^_^
I kind of wonder if I'm becoming a little bit vain since I've started losing weight and I got contacts. Oh well...so what if I am? This is the first time I've felt this good about my appearance, and I'm going to enjoy it! My birthday is a week from today, and I'm going to be 25. I'm finally starting to feel like my life is beginning to come together.
I also bought a couple of dresses off the clearance rack at Hot Topic the other day, to wear for this year's anime conventions. I usually sew my own gothic lolita, but these dresses were a lot less expensive than sewing my own and looked a lot better than anything I've ever sewn myself. Honestly, I do need to lose a little bit more weight before they'll fit perfectly (it was clearance, so they didn't really have the right sizes), but I still have 2 months until A-kon and that will give me a goal to work towards.
Of course, what I really love is that a certain girl I used to know that I didn't like too much used to bitch about all the "skinny girls" that buy dresses from Hot Topic instead of sewing their own...I guess now I'm one of them, lol!
