    wow, what a day!!!

    have just got back from meadowhall after a 10 hour shopping spree!

    i have eventually got the hang of not taking 16s into the changing room!

    i have bought some much needed new bras - 36DD instead of 38 FF!

    trousers i'm now a 10 petite in NEXT and M&S

    tops all are size 12, bought about 4

    dresses from oasis and warehouse size 10

    and a size 8 skirt from wallis

    as well as 3 pairs of shoes

    and a lovely butterfly necklace ( thank FYM!)

    oh, and some knickers and makeup!!!!

    Its a good job i made all that money on ebay recently ( about £250 now!)

    I'm never going back to anything bigger than a size 12 again
    the feeling of picking up little sizes is soooooooo good, i'm still buzzing!!

    yes there is plenty of room as i have ebayed everything that wasn't nailed down, lol! - i only had a very few things left

    i was trying to get a 'capsule wardrobe' as recommended by Gok last night, but its a bit random really - will need to go again in a couple of months i reckon hopefully!

    i know its mad isn't it!
    i was buying size 20 tops from next in december and now its 12s!

    i'm nowhere near a size 8 in anything else - think it was just a good skirt! - but nice all the same, will have to think of a way of wearing it with the label sticking out lol!

    sounds like a fantastic shopping trip! I need to start working on my summer wardrobe now really. I got to goal mid october so have plenty of winter clothes that fit but nothing for when the sun shines (for all of three days a year)

    I think a trip to the Trafford Centre is in order. What fun!! I'm like you though, always pick out things that are for too big. Or buy shoes and handbags as I don't need to worry about being too big for them to look good!

    I bet you felt like sexiest woman in the world being able to wear what you want.

    Although I am only down to an 18, I still go for the 20/22!!! Looking forward to be able to pick up a 12 though.

    Make sure you put some pics on here of your new clothes, we want to see. :banana dancer:
