(skirt: Target, sweater & t-shirt: Old Navy, tights & booties: Kohls)
I don’t look in the mirror before I leave in the morning.
I’m not allowed.
Oh, sure, I get ready in front of a mirror so I can see my hair and makeup just fine. But anything below the belly button is pretty much off limits.
The only full-length mirror we have is in our bedroom where my husband is, more often than not, slumbering away peacefully. So turning the light on for a quick full-body shot is out of the question.
Occasionally this has backfired.
In my head an outfit will look one way and then on, it takes on a whole other look.
This would be one of those outfits. If I had gotten even a glance at myself, I’d have known I needed some jewelry–any jewelry–on. And that this skirt is officially too big and looks more school marm than fashionable at this point.
Instagram friends suggested I get it taken in, but it’s a clearance skirt from Target and I think I’d pay a tailor more than I paid for the skirt. Plus, part of the fun of losing weight is buying new clothes.
So I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it right now.
Except not wear it again, because it is very unflattering.
What do you think? Do you use a tailor often? I’ve had some pants hemmed once or twice, but it’s not something I do often. Am I missing out??
