I've always liked clothes. I learned to sew because It made it possible for me to have more clothes on my budget ( not something possible these days.) I kind of gave up on being fashionable when I got so overweight and underfunded.
For some reason I became interested in buying some boots and trying the skinny- pants-tucked-in-boots trend. I am concerned that skinny pants on my wide body may be a fashion don't - but I am going to give it a go.
I ordered a couple of tunic tops, some skinny black jeans and then set out to get boots. That's when the trouble started. I went to DSW with my coupon and none of the boots would zip up. I had forgotten about the large calf issue. Even when I was at my slimmest I had narrow feet, small ankles and shapely but muscular calfs. Now they are even larger.
On Friday morning FedEx delivered a huge box with the boots inside. Ally was home and helped me pick the right pair, I returned the others this morning and now I await the rest of the outfits. Hopefully I won't look silly, especially since the boots were quite a bit more money than I would normally spend! That Ally didn't recoil in horror when I tried them on with my stretchy slim leg jeans makes me think I must have looked okay.
I am being taken out for a birthday lunch later this week and I hope to fit in with my stylish sisters for the occasion.
