I admit that I did need encouragement from mom to follow through on our planned trip last Saturday, but we got the job done. I found a couple of pairs of jeans and some unmentionables, but found that my favorite store has totally changed their supplier and so the styles aren’t quite the same, the fit/cut isn’t right, the quality isn’t as good, and the sizes are a mess. I should have been able to pick up at least 2-3 blouses, but oh well!
I’ve lost 31 lbs and it felt instead like I was 60 lbs heavier by the way the clothes fit. That was a huge disappointment. I had to come home and check the scale to be sure I hand’t lost my mind, lol!
In the end, I went to my mom’s favorte shop and I’m grateful that I found another one of the things I needed. Basic elements are crucial. I went to their online store and found more of the essential stuff for the same price, so I’ve got a good foundation of clothes for a while. I can always add a blouse or tunic in the next few months and I’ll be set.
