I know I've blogged about this before but this is slightly different as it's not about clothes I've parted with but clothes I can't even get my big toe in right now!
I'm overweight, it's true, I've always struggled to a degree with my weight all my life, in fact I was always known as voluptuous, curvy or whatever. So it was almost inevitable that when life slowed down a bit, I wasn't dancing as much, I wasn't out and about as I used to be that I would gain weight. I have to try SUPER hard to keep my weight under any type of control whatsoever. Though of course it IS within my control and so clearly I haven't been trying as hard as I could, in fact, drowning my sorrows in a wine bottle has certainly not helped!!!
ANYWAY, the one thing that does keep me focussed on trying to get control of my weight is that I do own some lovely clothes and I would love to get back into them. I did lose weight on Weightwatchers a few years ago and started wearing them again, but went through a super stressed time & sadly but it on and more, uuurgh. I keep these clothes because if I got rid of them all I would never try again!
So here are a couple of dresses I would LOVE to get back into. I think the first one is fantasy territory for me now, in fact I don't remember ever having that size waist!!
And here's a close up
Yeah fabulous huh? And no it's not even vintage! It was custom made for me for stagewear, it is STUNNING! And ok shoe ladies I didn't take a photo but I will at some point I have a pair of matching satin springolators with a rhinestone heel, oh yes you heard!! Loads of the rhinestones are missing and I need to replace them before they can be seen in public again!
I was going to sell it and took it to the doomed Twinwood, but people who had seen me onstage in it howled with horror at the thought of me selling it, with cries of 'but i have pictures of you in this & do you still have the shoes' so yes you can imagine the impression it made. But I honestly could fit my arm in it right now and that's it, the other problem though is there are not many people out there with a 26 inch waist and a 34G bust so not sure who it would fit anyway!!
Second up is this lovely thing, now I'm not sure it photographs well but take a look at the neckline close up, it is stunning!
So pretty!! I wanna wear it again.
I have many dresses I can't get into and just can't part with, am I kidding myself? Or will I do it in the new year? I'm not going to kid myself and start keeping an eye on my weight now, I could, but I know with the next few weeks I have and then with Christmas coming, the reality will be far from that!
New Year here I come and hopefully I'll be posting pictures of me in cute dresses next year!
Oh and by the way, sorry about absence, you know the situation, I'm working hard to catch up with everything so that it all goes smooth up with Mum and then at the Rhythm Riot next week.
