I hit my weight loss goal. Twenty pounds down since the beginning of September and not a lick of exercise was involved; I simply counted every single calorie I put into my body, started eating breakfast, drank a ton of water and cut down immensely on ordering out. We haven’t used GrubHub since the fall (we were averaging three delivered meals a week), and instead only eat high calorie meals when we’re with friends or for celebratory occasions. That equals about two or three cheat meals every seven days and we still hit our goals earlier than expected. Proud.
The weight loss means that we’ve both been walking around in too-big clothes. I’ve got a dozen pairs of jeans sitting in the guest room for my next trip to Goodwill (if you’re a size 8 to 12, I may have some for you!). It was time to shop.
Disclosure: I didn’t truly thrift for my new threads. Still keeping it secondhand, I got lazy and hit up Buffalo Exchange, the used clothing chain near our apartment instead of one of my tried and true resale haunts. I spent a little more than I would have liked because of this but the prices were nowhere near what they would have been with new clothes. This dress: $27. It has a slip underneath and is a heavy-weight fabric: perfect for winter and spring.
I’ve never browsed Topshop but have seen it mentioned on various fashion blogs. Imagine my surprise at the price for this insanely soft sweater dress: $10.
Free People sweater. $21.
I did a little research and found out that this Sparrow brand comfy sweater is from Anthropologie. $14. God, I love a deal.
I didn’t go thrifting this weekend which means I’ll have to do some shopping during the week. On the hunt for bookshelves, dish towels and fabric.
PS More outfit posts are coming. I like the challenge of making myself presentable enough to photograph. I will always include a “more” line in future outfit/fashiony posts so you can skim past and ignore them if you
choose think they’re lame.
PPS I realize my baseboards look filthy in these pics. They’re not. This is a crappy old building. You probably already know that.
