In a couple weeks, I will be at my goal weight and off on a shopping spree. My mom is going to treat me to a new wardrobe, YEAH! She thinks I will have earned it after losing 80 pounds. I have a little problem, though. I don’t know what types of clothes to buy.
The last time I was at this weight, I was a lot younger. I can’t buy the clothes I bought then, because they are not age appropriate. I’ll let you in on a little secret, I was never really good at picking out clothes for myself back then. I haven’t gotten better in time with it. I’ve focused so much time and energy on my son, that I neglected all things fashion for myself. I pretty much neglected myself completely. My doctor gave me a good wake up call, with my last physical. I’ve completely changed my lifestyle when it comes to eating and exercising. Now, I need a fashion makeover, and I need help.
That’s where my readers come in. I know that some of you are fashion divas. Can you help me out? If you are a blogger, you can blog about. Put together a post with pictures of clothes that are appropriate for my age and body type, and leave a link here for me to go check it out. I’d love to make this a contest, but I don’t have anything to giveaway for it. The only thing I have to offer for the coming up with the look that I like is a year of advertising either here on Carolina Mom Blogger, or over on my Autism Learning Felt blog (it’s a PR3). How does that sound to you? A 125×125 button on the sidebar of whichever one of my blogs you want, for a year.
It would help you to know, that I don’t do tank tops, sleeveless shirts or dresses, and I don’t do shoes with heels. I’m a mom on the go, and my feet have to be comfortable. (Oh, and I guess you want to know my name so that the outfits are age appropriate. Alright, I’m 41. Just don’t tell anyone.)
