My first sweater dress ever

and no spandex, just fleece-lined tights underneath.

So funny, I just bought my first sweater dress.

It looks great on you! I think you could size down, and it would be even more flattering, emphasizing your hour glass figure :)

Thank you for the inspiration, Silly Kitty! It is truly one of my favorite outfits that make me feel 10 feet tall! ;]

Absolutely, the fashionista twins! Have you been wearing your pants suit lately? Really versatile. Here's a close up of the seamstress magic. She took the fabric belt and added a more structured, better laying collar. Then, to my surprise - matched up the crane necks which I thought gave it a neat finished look. If you do wear it again... take another picture.

That looks fantastic. I agree, that is better use for the fabric belt.

I have actually not worn mine yet, outside of trying it on and posting pics on here :blush: I'm a semi clothes hoarder, I have more far clothes than I actually need :unsure:

@FluffyChix you take off the belt, sling it over your shoulder like a WWE belt. You shimmy out of the top. So you're squatting over the toilet in your bra with the rest of your outfit gathered around your knees. It looks totally dignified, I promise :lol:

Love the entire outfit! That color is the bomb dot com on you!!!

@Sheribear68 Love the dress! (I also think you could use a smaller size...)

@sillykitty I feared that would be the case! LOL. Or else it would be like Something About Mary where he totally took off all his clothes to go potty. LOL. Hahaha at the "dignified" part!

@KaysMommy Agreed! Wanna see pics of the formal event!!!!

@MIZ60 I want all your boots!!! Will you 'dopt me? :D

@GreenTealael You, Lancelot and I will build a giant wooden badger...

then we'll loot everyone's closet! :) Love everyone's fashion sense!!!

I still just have one burning question for you and @sillykitty...

How do you pee in public while wearing this outfit? :D

popcorneatingemoji.jpg.771b4530ff45cf41decb55d41fba0a7e.jpg

A good question! Not sure I have totally figured that one out yet. Asked hubby if he'd wait outside the powder room to help me with the very long back zipper and/or assist with any other unforeseen mechanical problems. True to He Man form, it appeared more interesting from his vantage point to go back into powder room together vs. returning to the cocktail party! Haha. ;]

I had several jumpsuits that I wore going out in the 70's-----it was a huge PITA to have to use a public restroom especially because I always wore pantyhose underneath them to avoid VPLs. So much to hold on to, pull down and keep from touching the floor. And, of course, you have to go more often when you are out dancing and drinking....I think they are cute now but not for me.

I just ordered my first jumpsuit. One I’ve been eyeing from the Gap went on sale for over 1/2 off, so I pulled the trigger. I may have regrets when I have to pee!

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Anyone else wake up to a nice freezing slap from Mother Nature this morning?

Okay so I’m working all late shifts this week, but no excuse not to head off to morning Pilates.

Oh and FYI guys.... that sweater dress is a size medium. Can’t even imagine myself in a small???

      I am OFFICIALLY SLEEVED! (surgery was Dec 9th, 2019)
      It was an easy procedure for me and I am not having complications. If you want to see part one of my journey go here: https://sabrinagoddess.com/life-on-the-other-side-post-op-wls
      I will be making new posts during this whole process!

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

      3. Arabesque

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      2. Arabesque

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

      3. Arabesque

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho
