Shopping Stop

I don't know if anyone else does this, but I tend to not trust mirrors in change rooms. You think some pants or blouse make you look awesome, but you get home and you just don't get the same feeling. It could be the lighting or the shopping rush- but you just hate it.

I have taken to photographing myself with my phone to check out outfits that I am not sure if I like or not...

Here is one I tried today- the top

Think I should get it?

I tried on a few things today, but I felt like this top actually made it look like I have lost weight and I could tell. Even though it is not a tight top, it is more flowy- I still felt like I could see the loss, especially in my shoulders/collar bone area for some reason!

I also tried on some short and jeans. Wanted to see what I could fit into. I am just shy of a size 10 jean/short. The 12s will be too big soon (if I even get back on track). At my heaviest I was wearing size 16s. I wore my size 16s this weekend and they were just falling off of me! It looked awful, but they were the only things I had to wear.

Also need a new bra with an underwire. My band size has decreased in this process and now I am either wearing a bra that is too big for me or a sport bra- both of which do not give you the most flattering shape.


  1. I think that's a very cute shirt. And, I always see a lot of change in the upper chest/shoulders/collar bone areas too. I love showing off my collar bone, when you can see it.

  2. You look so cute. Congratulations on fitting into smaller sizes. I seem to lose on my upper body more quickly as well. I bought new bras last fall, but I already need smaller ones. BTW I love your new profile pic.

  3. I think the top makes your legs look longer, too!
