Now, I should have waited until first thing Saturday morning so my swollen belly wouldn’t have played a part in trying to figure out sizes. Also, I would have been fresh as a daisy, with some energy AND had I waited until, say the end of next month, more pounds would have been shed, plus the swelling issue could have been gone by then. . .BUT I had this coupon for $$$$ off for Ann Taylor Loft. Sure, I know some swear that place is for the not so cool mommies or those who are entering their 40s but their stuff fits me. They have petites and quite frankly, it is not worth buy pants that are too long that I then have to take to hem because that costs more than finding pants that fit properly. And, when I go to buy clothes, I want to wear them NOW.
So off I went to ATL in Green Hills where one of the employees knows me. I have bought so much stuff over the past few years, that she knows I am a regular. I have space saver bags full of size fours that if I can ever get back into them, I will have a large wardrobe that will only need a new thing here and there. I gave all of my fat clothes away when I got thin thinking that would stop me from binge eating and all that got me was a trip back to ATL to get bigger clothes when I got fat, again.
So now my goal is size 8, which in some things I can do. If I can stay in the 8-10 zone, I will be content. I would be thrilled to be in my tiny clothes but I am not going to put that much stress on myself and I don’t know if I can stick to that anyway. Plus, well according to friends and mom; I looked horrible that small. I didn’t think so and quite frankly my butt looked great in my skinny jeans!
Well, it was like Christmas in August because guess what?! My favorite sales person (MFSP) said, “Oh you get 20% off full price through the weekend.” Yeah me but oh, I have this other coupon and it looks to be the better deal. . . So MFSP says, “We can combine them!!!!!!” Seriously? Snoopy dance on deck, ready for lift off. . . and off I went looking at everything, including sweaters that were on special that were still eligible for the percent off.
I hope that works for everyone to see. I love them, they will work for work plus going out (yeah right) and will be a nice transition for fall. Plus I got such a steal, if I had more money I would have bought a couple of dresses that I liked but I will just stalk those until they go on sale.
