It’s not always easy to find pieces that make me feel pretty with a bit of glam, but this dress from Dillards definitely helped me succeed in that this week. It was the first time in years that I was able to walk into that particular department store and find clothes that fit my body.
As a plus-size girl who likes to feel feminine and, dare I say…pretty, I love shopping for clothing that doesn’t look like everything else in my closet so the neck line and sleeves really appealed to me. It’s the first dress I’ve considered wearing sans cardigan in as long as I can remember.
While I was out, I also tried on a pair of Jones New York cropped jeans that made me feel completely stylish and adorable! Now I’m on the search for the perfect swim suit – as perfect as it gets when you’re not satisfied with your body. Hey, I’m a work in progress, remember? 😉
This tankini from Avenue is a few sizes smaller than the last swimsuit I bought last year, and it reminded me that I have come a long way even if I don’t always feel like it. At 50% off, it might just have to be mine soon…
My clothing options have opened up so much since I began losing weight, and it seems to grow a bit more with every pound I lose. Add another one to the list. I lost 0.8 this week! And while I’ve always enjoyed buying new clothes, it’s fun to choose clothes that are flattering for my shape as opposed to buying whatever fits!
Do you enjoy shopping for clothes? Has your view of shopping changed due to weight-loss or weight-gain?
