Wear it: July 6, 2010

I have been having some wardrobe issues of late because I have decided (was bribed) to lose some weight. I promise not to unload too much of that drama on you but it will affect my fast. Because I was so efficient during my wardrobe purge I don't have a lot of clothing left from the old days. Since I have a lot of weight to lose I will need to be very selective in making the bare minimum of purchases until I get back to my old size.

One solution to my dilemma. Dresses. I haven't worn a lot of dresses since I got fat but luckily I had 2 or 3 in my closet that survived the purge. What I like about dresses is that a belt can make a too big dress fit (or look not so bad) where as my pants just look stupid when they are too big.

This black and white shirt dress is going to get a lot of wear this summer. Sure it is polyester and was bought at the fat girl section of J.C. Penny's for $15 but it fits, is dressy enough for "light" court days (not a trial but a status conference perhaps), and can be accessorized to look (I hope) like I am not wearing it all the time (which I will be).

I think I own the same dress. I feel the same way about it too. It's cheap and polyester but so easy to wear!

My absolute favorite maternity dress was a black-and-white polyester number from J.C. Penney. I miss it. I'd easily buy another in non-maternity form; it was just so easy to pop that thing on in the morning and go.
