At Allison Gary's recommendation from Wardrobe Oxygen, I'm doing a month's free trial of Gwynnie Bee. Gwynnie Bee is "clothing without commitment" a subscription service where you borrow clothes !
Allison and other fashion bloggers like Sue at The Working Closet have inspired me to look good no matter what my size and to get dressed IN AN OUTFIT (yoga pants and a shirt don't count) every day. There's no doubt that I need to lose weight and exercise regularly, but being overweight is no reason to give up on looking good. I could write about this topic for days and days, but I'll stop here.
I spent some time today on the Gwynnie Bee website picking out some things, and then a stylist contacted me for a phone call where she made some additional suggestions based on things I liked. At this time, Gwynnie Bee only carries sizes 10-26 and the stylist was knowledgeable about the different cuts from the various designers so it took some guesswork out of it for me.
Now I've got to run. I'm headed out to run a few errands and I want to pack a healthy lunch to take with me so I'm not tempted to stop for fast food along the way.
