The Dress and jeans......(pics)

Sunday, April 07, 2013

I did have some non-scale victories as well. A couple of weeks ago we went to Nordstrom’s and just for fun, I tried on some clothes. A goal of mine was to be able to go into there and try on a pair of ridiculously expensive designer jeans and have them fit. I found a pair of size 31 Citizens of Humanity jeans that were $228. I was very nervous but I took them in the dressing room, tried them on and WHOOOHOOO they fit and actually, they were a bit big in the waist. There was NO WAY I would pay that much for a pair of jeans but it was good to know that I could finally get in them. I did go to Macy’s and buy a pair of size 10 jeans. I had told myself that I would not be buying that many new pants until after P3 just in case my body wanted to put back on some weight but a lot of my pants were baggy and just looked sloppy.

This booty shot is all about the angle cause it does NOT look like that....hahaha

Then there was the dress. I saw Ali from the Biggest Loser with this AWESOME black leather dress on and I so wanted to find it. The hubby and SIL said that I would look really good in that style of dress. I was unable to find who the designer was online but when we went to Nordstrom’s, there is was. It was the exact one that she wore and it was a Diane Von Furstenburg leather dress. I grabbed a size 10 and went to the dressing room to try it on praying that it would fit. I almost cried, it did and it did not look too bad. Not like on the model on the website or Ali, but I am not their size so it would not look the same. It was beautiful but it costs….drumroll……………………….$795. There was absolutely no WAY I would pay that much for a dress even if I did have somewhere to wear it too. I would have to wear it at least once a week for a couple of years to justify the cost and there is just no where to wear it to. I know that the hubby would have let me buy it if I really wanted it but still, that’s too much for my taste.

I had a pair of Old Navy white jeans that fit so good in size 14’s but cannot wear those anymore unless I plan on showing everyone a full moon. I found a size 10’s on ebay and I am so happy since they look and fit so good. Did a little happy dance when I put them on.

I am still having a hard time seeing the weight loss and that I am finally fitting into some size 10’s which was my ultimate goal. I am sure that it will take time and hopefully I start seeing it.

    You do look very good. It's time for you to wake up and realize you are where you need to be. If I remember correctly, you're 5'8" or so, right? Getting into a size 10 is AMAZING! I think I'm built similarly to you, but I'm 5'6" and the only time I've been in a size 10 was after being really sick for a very long time. Oh, and about those size 14 jeans? Send 'em my way! They'd be just about right for me now or very soon!

    Nothing like a pair of jeans that fit!

The dress is very sexy! Umm...yeah...only fun to try on, but not to take a second mortgage for!

    You look great! I miss my size 10 jeans, and hopefully will get back in them before the year is over. I cannot stand to wear ON jeans anymore though, they don't fit like they use to when I was in HS (like 10 years ago). I stick to American Eagle or Gap.
