Dress Shopping (pictures)

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

My sister visited NY this weekend and we went dress shopping for her upcoming wedding. I am a bridesmaid with one of her friend's and my other sister. She wants us to wear short purple dresses.

At the mall I discovered that I am now a size 14!!!!!! To clarify, I am a misses size 14. Plus size is no longer necessary for me! Not all the size 14 stuff fit really well and a few items didn't zip up all the way. But I think with the right girdle and a hot pair of shoes, I could rock any number of these dresses!

When I looked at these pictures, my first instinct was to pick myself apart because I'm not happy with the rolls around my waist or my heavy arms. EFF THAT! I look good!

(I apologize in advance for the hiking boots. I really thought we were going hiking that day with my dad but he had a cold.)

This looked great in person but the camera didn't capture it right.

Loved this dress but the jacket was way too tight.

This one is for the ladies:

In conclusion, when I tried on those dresses I felt fantastic. It's been hard for me to "see" my 40 pound weight loss because I'm still mostly wearing my plus size 18/20 clothes. I do my best to belt and cinch where I can, but I think those clothes make me look rather dumpy. I can't really afford a bunch of new stuff right now unfortunately. My birthday is next month and if anyone asks what I want, I will request clothes or gift certificates.
