EEEEEEK! I bought a v. expensive (but in the sale) size 14 Karen Millen dress. And it fits almost perfectly - the dress fits me beautifully, but the strange back-fastening belt needs me to lose another half inch before it will stay done up without unpopping. I wish I had £120 to spend on the pale gold satin skirt I saw there. It's beautiful but I can't justify it. :sigh: - actually - that should really be a :rolleyes: because at least I can actually fit into something that beautiful!

I had never even been in a Karen Millen before! It was always a no-point-in-going-in-there shop before LL!

I also bought a ra-ra skirt! Me? In a ra-ra skirt? It looked cute! I'm eyeing up most of the Gap summer dresses as they appear to be beautifully cut and good value. Somebody stop me before I bankrupt myself!

WooHoooo that sounds gorgeous - well done you :) There are some amazing clothes in that shop, I can't wait to be able to wear something from there .... my daughter bought a dress for her 18th from there and it's stunning.

Love to see a photo of you in the dress --- happy shopping :D

Cerulean,

I loved reading your post. Looking at your tracker you've done so well, you deserve a treat.

At the moment you are fitting a size 14, but remember that you are still not at goal so be prepared that it may not to fit when you get to goal! I know that it is still a dream that you will be a size 10 or 12, but it WILL happen.

I bought a beautiful (expensive) suit when I was size 14. It is far to big now, and, because of the way it is cut, I cannot take it in without spoiling the line. Sigh. Still, it's not all bad, because I've had to buy more clothes in size 12 and 10! No rest for the wicked. Don't tell hubby (What, this old thing? I've had it for AGES).

Three cheers for SHOPPING!

Okay then - photos!

I had to take pictures of my official LL photos as I don't have a scanner - anyway - the photos of me in black trousers are from the 10th January after I had been doing LL for 3 days and had lost 7lbs! - I still have the trousers - my ambition is to get two people into them when I'm done!

The photos of me in the black dress are after 12 weeks of LL - a size 16 and about 4st lighter than in the first pictures.

The blue dress is me today in the size 14 Karen Millen dress. It's a little tight, but I shall wear it to death over the next month (if the weather gets better!)

One of the most exciting things (OK probably THE most exciting thing lol) for me when I first lost the weight was to go mental for designer clothes!!

It's such an amazing thrill after shopping at Evans!!!
