Good-bye fat clothes

I took three large garbage bags full of clothes to Goodwill this morning. As I threw things in the bag I realized the things sized 20 and 18 were mostly bought from Goodwill only a few months ago... seems more like clothes rental. There was one skirt I have had for several years that I loved-loved-loved when I bought it but only wore it twice. Since I don't (or really can't) dress up for work I seldom get a chance to wear dress clothes. So instead of ending up in the Goodwill bag I used it to recover my office chair (see photo below).

What do you think?

Inside the store I found a pair of size 14 Levi jeans that fit but are still a little tight around the waist and pair of size 12 jeans that I just thought were too cute to pass up. I will get into them some day. I also found a pair of pj pants and a pair of running pants.

I probably won't post again until after the Holiday. Have a wonderful day!


  1. OMG! That chair is freaking adorable. LOVE IT!

  2. LOVE the chair!

    I'm wearing my 12s now. I never thought I'd get there either.

  3. What a freakin' awesome idea - I love your chair! I can see why you didn't want to let that skirt go - the pattern is so cute! Great idea!

    Glad you found some jeans - they will be fitting just fine soon with the way you are losing! Last time I was at our resale shop I bought a Banana Republic jacket that was too tight in the sleeves (they are short) but was too cute to pass up, so it's hanging in my closet, waiting for my arms to thin down. You'll be in those 12's before you know it!

    Hope you have a great Turkey Day!

  4. Great idea on the chair! And I am glad you properly disposed of some of your large clothes.
