I love to get to know more about the bloggers I follow and who follow me so I’m going to ask a question:
What is your favourite item of clothing?
It can be something old, something new, something you wear or you keep just because, it can be an item of someone else’s that you can’t bear to let go.
Give us a back story on it, I’m interested to see how much importance we place on clothing… those who don’t know as I shrink out of my favourite go to pieces we’re turning them into a patchwork so that at the end of my weight loss journey I have a reminder of how far I went, the steps along the way and something to help me make sure I don’t go back again. I’ve got to the point where I can finally discard some items and my most favourite that I can’t bear to get rid of is:
my beige and white stripey three quarter sleeved top. This was the first time I felt I looked OK in horizontal stripes. I loved that it covered up my flabby upper arms and that it looked smart enough with a black suit for work yet doubled up for casual wear with jeans. I’m sad that it’s way too big now, it was over sized to start with so after 18lbs weightloss it’s looking decidedly loose and has to go. It has a scooped neckline and if I continue to wear it I am definitely going to flash some boob at some point to an unsuspecting witness.
I wore it as a PJ top for the past couple of weeks as it is definitely the first thing I have become too small for but I can’t do that even anymore, it has to go and I’m sad about that, much sadder than I am about the black and grey flecked skirt which I’ve lived and died in for months. I’ve had my top for 2 years so it’s sad to see it go.
Over to you… what’s your favourite item and why.. come on humour me and I’ll accept footwear too 😀
