Without access to unlimited funds, with a deep, unfeminine hatred of shopping and a need to make my wardrobe work for both work and home?
See, I’ve lost some weight. When I hit that 10% loss where Weight Watchers gives you a nice keychain, I bought three pairs of new pants 2 sizes smaller in celebration. That was about a year ago.
Since then I went off WW (for medical reasons) gained some weight back, righted myself and have been losing steadily, yet in increments too small to measure or notice (Yay me!). Only people did notice. Oh, they don’t notice that I’ve gotten skinnier ('cause, honestly, I’m still BIG girl. Ain’t no skinny over here.) but that my clothes, especially my pants, don’t fit. Not only do they not fit, but they look really bad. Bad enough for me to notice-- and that’s saying something.
It’s my turn for the su-su money. It’s a little over 250$ What I really want to get is a new MP3 player, some PC games and a mess of CDs. I have been literally threatened with bodily harm from both friends and family if I do this. Now I’m asking for help, hints and fashion ideas for a fat, clueless geek on a clothes shopping spree.
