|Silk blouse: Thrifted and chopped off the arms, Skirt: Thrifted, Shoes: Lela Rose for Payless via eBay|
I found this skirt at a new favorite local thrift store. I saw it on the racks on a couple of visits and finally decided to just get it to sell because it has such great details....side zips that go all the way up the thigh, a great stretchy fabric and tailored seams. It's a size 2, so as much as I loved it, I was fixated on the size. But as I was in the dressing room trying on some other things, I eye balled the skirt laying in my cart and thought, "MAN! I swear that looks like it would fit me!" and so I went for it and braced myself for a few moments of sweating, pulling, grunting and possible tears!
But guess what!? BAM! FABULOUSNESS was born!!! It fit so great that I knew it was meant to be
AND an object lesson was learned.....
FORGET ABOUT SIZES.....THEY MEAN NOTHING
Perusing my closet, you'd find everything from 2 to 16 and everything in between! That size 2 no more makes me tiny than the size 16 makes me full figured! I'm just me and those sizes just don't mean a thing! Makes you wonder why we put so much significance on a number, eh?
