My New Problem With Clothes Shopping

Tuesday, March 30, 2010 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 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!

    I will be 25 this April as well. That is an awesome problem you have, finding too many clothes that look awesome on you! emoticon You'll have to post pix of the rockin' 60s outfit. My mom always says I was born in the wrong generation...that I am a hippie at heart...which I agree with other than the drugs and promiscuity, hehe! I love 60s stuff! emoticon

    Keep on rockin' this girl!!! emoticon
