I signed up to the challenge 'Say Yes to the Dress, Jeans etc' planning to slim into a skirt which I've never worn, but is too small. Today I panicked.
We've been to a family Christening, but as usual, the best laid plans went belly up when the sunny weather turned wintery instead. What can I wear?
I rooted out the planned dress but the weather was too cold to wear without some form of cover up, so decided that I could wear the jacket from my 'interview suit'. Didn't fit well at all and on closer investigation realised it was two sizes too big?? I tried the skirt I was planning to slim into hoping that maybe, this would sort of fit. Shock, horror - that's too big as well (either that or the elastic in the waistline has perished...
Now what do you do? I ended up having to wear an outfit which I've worn to work a few times instead. Not exactly glamorous, but needs must.
Now I'm back, I've now got the dilemma of trying to find a new suit - the old one was lovely and really flattering, but not any more. I've also got the issue of whether to try and put new elastic into the waist band of the skirt.
I shouldn't complain really, as dropping 3 dress sizes since starting my weight loss journey (albeit a bit up and down) is a real plus.
I still want to get back into the flying jacket, but now I've got to find another item of clothing to slim into. I suppose I'll just have to go shopping now?! Happy Days.
