I've been watching "What Not to Wear" this week since one season came out on Netflix, plus there's a game on facebook, "Sorority Life" which is like playing paper dolls and I make my little woman fashionable.
This makes me think about my wardrobe. I had some great clothes when I was on the top of my weight. I was there long enough to gain enough pieces to look good in, even though that is harder when one is fat, I just clearance shopped the "fat girl" stores for long enough to have enough nice clothes that I actually got compliments on. I was really sad when I had to get rid of a great bright top that fit me well at the time I purchased it and was fun.
I've been working on "transitional" clothes for so long that I figured I'd be in medium by now, instead of stuck in large for so long. I have one pair of decent fitting jeans and a lot of plain t-shirts. Not so fashionable as I used to be and the things I do have that are decent looking are in fabrics that don't breathe, so I'm less likely to wear them.
So I don't feel as sexy as I used to in the clothes I have. How much plainer can I get in just some t-shirts? I feel like I'm the gawky teenager working through growth spurts and not fitting right into anything.
I've been stuck in this range for so long that I actually have a completely new wardrobe, but not necessarily a flattering one. I need to work on always buying things that work well for my body and flatter my assets whenever I get new pieces. No more plain t-shirts should jump in my cart. I've been going to Target for too many pieces and since they only have style for teenagers, I'll never find things for my body. It's time to start looking into clothes stores again.
No matter what size we're in, we should always look good in our clothes. Make sure to pick out pieces that flatter your body. Try things on, if it doesn't look good on you at the store, it won't flatter you out in full light either. Some stores you'll only find one item and as long as you have your basics set up, you should be able to throw together a whole wardrobe by the time you've gotten home.
It's time to look hot again!
