So I bought this dress

Sunday, September 15, 2013

I love going into secondhand shops, you never know what you're gonna find! Yesterday I went to a few with my mom, and we found this dress. It's so simple, and pretty, and I think I'm going to get married in it. As long as nothing goes wrong with the dry-cleaning.
Behold, my $12 wedding dress

It is a size or 2 too small, so I have a new source of motivation as I get myself back on track! It's so flattering, I love the way it looks already and I can't even zip it up! Haha that's why the photo is taken from the side, the other side has the zipper.

I'm estimating I need to lose about 30 pounds before it will fit. Given the craziness that goes along with planning a wedding, and my habits of inconsistent progress, I'm thinking this is completely realistic.

So this is a new starting point, I could quit weighing and just gauge my progress by how the dress fits! Haha monthly dress pics, in which the zipper goes up one fine day!
