and perspective kicks me in the ass again

Whenever you have a fat day, invite your "skinny" friend (aka: jammer) over to try on your goal dress (try to imagine it without Syd Vicious hiding most of it). Now Jammer needs a dress for a wedding this weekend, which we had gone on a shopping adventure for a couple of weeks ago.I thought we had found it, but apparently she never bought it. *sigh* I told her I had said kickass dress sitting in my closet collecting dust but it might be a bit big on her. She tells me to try it on the other night when we were talking about it because we're "the same size" according to her, so I did. It was a teeny bit loose now when it was snug when I bought it (YAY ME!). I sooooo wish I had another occasion to wear that puppy to! Or to buy that other one I spied a couple of weeks ago!! So I told her that, but she was still sold on the dress and wanted to come try it herself. I envisaged her with the dress slipping off her body and was petrified. Apparently, not. Just a teeny bit loose on her too (although she has no li'l belly bulge a la moi), but the ruffles and the way the material gathers at the seams hides it pretty well. HURRAH! Now if I could only get her away from convincing me to eat out every time I see her....

I gotta pull out my pre-ww jeans again - always inspirational the way they literally fall off of me...

cool experience with the dress..... it puts it into perspective when you can't tell what size you are compared to others, eh?

I am ALL about inventing excuses to wear pretty dresses. Just do it, girl! :) Or put something on top of it to make it a little more casual -- that would work too!

Anyway, there is officially no denying that you are skiiiiiin-y! You go girl! :)
