I’ve been putting it off. I usually can make it through a week looking acceptable, but I have a company meeting in a week in Nashville. The event usually turns into a little of a fashion show for the ladies, and I must participate, of course.
New clothes…. that’s what I needed.
So… last night, I decided to go out to see what fits and what I could put on this -30 lbs bod. Well, first stop was New York and Company. I knew I could definitely find some tops here, and was excited that their pants sizes went up to size 18. So, arms filled with clothing (bright springy colors, I might add), I entered the dressing room.
BTW… the lady at NY&C was soooooo pushy toward the credit card. Kinda irritated me. I want a credit card so that I get the coupons, but certainly not from this lady… Hmmpf!
So… the tops looked great, but the pants… hmmmm…. there was a wide leg version that was slightly too tight that I could’ve worn, but it just seemed wrong. Why buy clothes that don’t fit? When I’m that size, there is likely something else I’ll want more. So, I left the tight 18s behind and purchased a bunch of tops + some cute earrings.
I still need pants though, at this point. So…. I decided to go back to my old standby… Lane Bryant. Good news is they had pants that fit. EVEN BETTER news is that my size dropped from a 20 to a 16 over the past few months! BOOYA!
Note the 18s at NY&C wouldn’t fit, but the 16s at LB fit… no clue why, but I don’t care. Will just take it!!!
