Playing dress up

Sunday, September 30, 2012


Twice a year I change the clothes in my wardrobe. This weekend I was putting away summer clothes and getting out fall/winter clothing. Every time I do this, I look at clothes that MIGHT fit me this season. They never do. But this time it was different. I have actually lost enough weight - 20 lbs -to make a difference.

So this time I was able to fit into some of my favourite clothes that I have not worn for years. I realize that this might make them somewhat unfashionable, but I have only kept clothes I really like,and I am so happy to be wearing them again. It really felt like playing dress up. It was fun!

And now that I am wearing them again - it feels like I just got a bunch of new clothes!

These are all tops. But my pants are loose too. So I thought that I should go pant shopping. It turns out, that although I have lost all this weight, I am not quite ready for the next size down of pants. But I WILL lose that weight too - and then I can have another dress up day too!

Anyway, just wanted to share my fun with you. emoticon

    emoticon 20 pounds and fitting into clothes you haven't worn for a long time emoticon

And I wouldn't worry about being fashionable. Classy clothes never go out of style ... just the faddish ones ... and somehow I don't perceive you as faddish.

    Good job! Now get rid of the clothes you have out grown, don't think you are ever going to fit them again.
