Elation in the Banana Republic dressing room
This photo was taken from my camera phone in the Banana Republic outlet dressing room this weekend. I wanted to document the elation on my face when i realized i fit into a size SMALL shirt. And not “sort of” or “i hope it still fits after washing” but ACTUALLY FITS!
I had similar happiness in the J.Crew outlet dressing room when I had to go from a size 8 shirt to a size 6… and was able to strut around in the size 8 halter dress without a problem (when before I’d be teetering between the size 8 and 10).
I had been measured the week before, but the numbers didn’t translate to real world elation until after I had tried on new clothes. Here’s my progress so far: (you’ll notice the biggest improvement is in my waist! Perhaps that’s why I can manage a SMALL now!) :-)
