Summer Dresses!!! So excited!! :D (Pictures!!)

Sunday, June 06, 2010

As some of you may know, my main goal when first joined SP over a year ago was to lose weight for my July birthday and to be able to wear cute summer dresses with confidence!!! I didn't meet my goal in time for last years birthday, it was in the fall when I finally started to feel more comfortable with my body, so I didn't buy any summer dresses. Well now summer is here again I realized with the 20 lbs I lost last year that I don't have any summer clothes at all!!! I had long ago cleared out my closet of all of the smaller sized items (kicking myself now!) and recently got rid of my bigger clothes because I don't want to allow myself to get there again!! So now that it's heating up I find I don't have a SINGLE thing to wear!!! Just a bunch of cardigans!!! (Always liked to cover up)

Also I realized recently, while talking with one of my best friends, that I have been waiting for the day when I've lost all of my weight to buy any clothes, leaving me with absolutely nothing in my closet!! She said I can't do that to myself and I need clothes that I feel comfortable in and have to dress the body I have now while I'm in the process. She's right, why torture yourself and not reward yourself for every step along the way?

So yesterday, My boyfriend and I we're celebrating our 3 year anniversary and he surprised me saying that for my anniversary gift he wanted to buy me some summer clothes!!! We have been really struggling financially so this was quite a shock!! I argued it at first because I felt guilty spending money on myself while we are struggling but he insisted!!! I decided to go to Ross so I could get more bang for my buck!!! Well I didn't expect to find much since Ross can be so hit and miss, but to my great surprise they were fully stocked with some AMAZING summer dresses!!! I liked so many and had a hard time narrowing it down!!!

Now I may not be exactly where I want to be weight wise but I need to remind myself that I'm 20 lbs lighter than I was!!! I need to enjoy that and not punish myself because I'm not at my end goal yet!!!

So here are some pictures of the dresses!!! I got 5 dresses for about $85 dollars!!! Pretty good!!!

^This one has cute blue pin stripes but it's hard to tell from the picture!^

^This one has pin stripes like the first dress but they are green!!!^ Here's what the dress looks like on (except I'm a little more curvy than that model!! ;D)-

^This Ruby Rox dress I've been eyeing at a boutique shop down town and I found it at Ross!!! I have another cute Ruby Rox dress that I've had for years and I have never found a dress that fits my figure better!!! I want one in every color!!!

And here are my new Tommy Hilfiger plaid shoes that I got at Ross as well!!-

Sorry the pictures aren't very good!! I'll try to do better in the future!!! ;D

    Wow! What an amazing haul :). You look very fetching and those dresses are just so cute. In Canada, I have never seen a Ross store but now I wish we had them too!

    The dresses are too cute and you look so cute in your new dress! I am in love with the plaid shoes. Something about me and plaid lately, if it's a shoe and it's plaid, I have to have them!lol Glad you found some great deals. Can't wait until I have to go buy new clothes (I'm hoping by the time school starts back. You know you gotta have new school clothes! (or at least that's the excuse that I'm going to ) Congratulations again and you look precious!! emoticon
