3. To wear nice clothes and shoes and have a closet clear out

Thursday, October 03, 2013

Ooooo this is a biggie for me. Clothes, shoes, looking half decent. Aaaaargghhh! This could be a long blog.

I ALWAYS feel like I just get the clothes and shoes that fit. Which definitely does not always mean the clothes and shoes that look nice. To get the shoes issue out of the way first: I have big feet. I've come to terms with it now, accepted it even haha But I still know I have big feet. Way over average for a girl. I'm size 10 UK (which I think is an American 10.5). Bear in mind that I am almost 5'10, and my dad is 6'4 with size 13 feet, then it's not really surprising LOL! Most shops only go up to a size 8 or 9, so if I'm lucky I can squeeze semi-comfortably into a 9. And I've recently found a few online stores that sell up to size 11 in ladies shoes, but they aren¡¦t always the prettiest shoes. But anyway, I haven¡¦t yet found a tried and tested method for shrinking feet so I guess I should stop moaning about this one and accept that that's my lot in life ƒº

Clothes. Ay, yie yie! Now THIS is something I can do something about. I'm not even talking designer flashy clothes. Do you know what my biggest clothes wish is? To be able to rock some tight-fitting jeans, with a fitted t-shirt, cute blazer and some nice boots. That's it. Pretty simple huh? Until you factor in that I've always had fat thighs, jutting-out hips, and a wobbly fat belly with serious muffin top. Grrrrrr.

I have a million pieces of clothing. Surprised?! Literally my drawers and my wardrobe are overflowing with clothes. Horrible clothes, ugly clothes, a lot of clothes that don¡¦t fit, some that I've never worn before, others that I never wear because they are the 'what were you thinking?' items. A big goal for me on this weight loss journey is to be able to do a full clear out of these clothes and only keep things that I'm actually going to wear again. Give those to charity. Put together some nice outfits that I already have and can fit into, and then go on a lovely shopping spree to get cute work and social clothes so I always feel like a hottie. The times when I dress nicely, do my make-up and hair, are the days when I feel at my best.

I can't wait for this. As a side note, I'm also in the process of buying my first flat (whoop! So exciting!). I'm still looking for 'The One' but I'm really hoping I find it within the next 6 months. I think moving will be a great opportunity to have this clear out. I'm still living in the house I grew up in so I have accumulated a LOT of stuff. I can't wait to see the progress I've made in 6 months! Realistically, I could and should be at goal (or very close to it) by then. Eeeeeeee (that's an excited squeal!)


P.S. Thanks to EVERYONE who has visited my blogs the past few days! I haven't had much time to sit down and respond to them all, but I really appreciate it SO much!

    Girl your feet aren't that big. If you lived over here you would find cute stuff in your size. My issue is my calves! They alway been large & wide calf boots are more expensive so I cant always get them. Never settle on clothes. I mean I do at times b/c I may not have the money but clean out your closet & start fresh little by little. Let's not let old clothing with old memories holding us back.

    Get rid of the old, and make room for the new. !. You'll help a charity, 2. You wont have to pack them when you move and 3. You aren't going to allow yourself to go back to fit into the clothes that are too big, so why keep them around. You'll be in those skinny jeans before you know it. emoticon

    This would be an excellent time to watch reruns of What Not To Wear! Be ruthless getting rid of stuff that doesn't suit you!

    One thing I hate: the clothes that I love don't suit my body type. So. Tailored it is. Whether I like it or not. When I was younger I would have LOVED to wear little frilly frou-frou, but it just looked ridiculous. Crisp and structured is the way to go. Meh. It could be worse!
