I’ve been putting off buying new clothes for a while – a combination of not knowing if I’ll be losing much more weight, and wanting to be able to go new-wardrobe-crazy in the States next month.
But enough was enough. I really needed a new skirt that I could wear to a client meeting without hanging my head in shame. My previous favourite high-waisted skirt is a little, erm, loose.
(Excuse the bra – changing room self-takes aren’t as easy as they look…)
Turns out trying to find a nice, professional, fitted skirt when you’re between sizes and only have half an hour left on your lunch break isn’t easy. Put simply, it’s freakin’ hard.
Three shops and six skirts later, I found one. Still a little tight across the top of the thighs, it feels comfortable. And it fits well enough around the waist and hips. WIN!
The shopping itch has been satisfied for now, and I can head into work tomorrow with a well-hugged (albeit professional) butt.
Credit card’s next stop: New York.
