Middle-age spread is a terrible thing! All of my life I have been able to eat what I like and stay the same size. Not any more!! :( This weekend we will be helping my parents to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary and although I had been casually looking for a new dress, I fully expected to wear one I have had for a couple of years and hardly worn. Sadly, when I tried it on it was too tight around the ribs! Okay, not worried yet, I have a back-up dress. Too tight on the bust!!! My wardrobe and I are no longer on speaking terms! Hence the dash into town late yesterday. I don't buy many new clothes, as I can never seem to find anything suitable in the shops. I tend to hang onto my existing outfits for a long while; which is why I am blogging about this shopping trip - it is so unusual for me to find one dress that fits, let alone three and there was 20% off. :)
This is the dress that I will be wearing to my parents' do.
That ruching is very forgiving! ;)
I also bought these two to wear for less formal occasions
and maybe for work.
I was on a roll - I also found a new swimming costume.
Mine only last a year as I go swimming three times a week.
Some pretty pink pearls to go with the dress.
I also bought some underwear, but I'm not showing you those!
I will show you these though.
You know it's bad when you stop buying stockings and reach for the support tights!! :)
