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.
I loved #3 the purple with the ruffled neck. Also 4,5, 6 are they the same dress, different colors? or the same dress, same color (Blue) but some underexposed? I couldn't tell but they all look great. Love your hiking boots too - I need to get me some soon!!
DAAAANG GIRLFRIEND! You are ROCKIN those size 14s!! You are so great and inspirational! You really give me strength to keep kickin ze butt even when I am really discouraged. You look so BEE-YOO-TEE-FULL!!!! 3466 days ago
