I never did get on my blog and gloat about the skirt I got this past weekend. Huh.
Well, here it is: I went to Kohl's on Saturday for a new pair of tennis shoes (which I'm not too fond of, sigh), and ended up in the clearance racks on my way out the door. Well, with 70% off, I just couldn't resist and I found some pretty major deals. First, I grabbed a ton of clothes that were either size 10 or mediums, and found a skirt that was a size 6 and a sweater that was a size small.
On some crazy impulse, I grabbed both of them, even though I was sure neither would fit. Well, here's the amazing part: they both did. Yes, I'm speaking the truth here. The skirt, while I had a hard time getting it up over my thighs (you'd think the number of squats I do would have SOME kind of impact on them), buttoned up just fine and looked wonderful on me. I think my mind shut down right there, I was so amazed. That little voice in the back of my head says that skirt is a fluke, because com'on, I haven't even started to wear the size 8 jeans comfortably yet (and that's a thigh issue too). And no, I do not wear my skirts/pants at the level of the belly button. It either buttons below it or I'm not wearing it. The sweater fit too, although I didn't get it because I decided to get a sun dress instead and I'm on a limited budget (even in the clearance section).
So that's my gloat. Now for those jeans...
