I donated my cute work-function cocktail dresses to charity.
I gave away my wedding dress to a friend in need and insisted she just keep it.
Yet there's one dress I can't give up:
I wore this little paisley number for an entire summer back in 2000. I was living downtown, single, and having the time of my life. I also was broke, walked everywhere with my friends, and survived on about 800 calories a day...mostly coming from Corn Flakes.
I came across this dress as I was preparing some bags for Goodwill last night. I checked the size. It's a junior dress. Big ole six-foot Marianne used to fit into junior sizes? WTF.
Which brings me to my Weight Watchers update. I am down six pounds and I can almost fit one leg into Purple Paisley.
Thanks, by the way, to Julie over at Feeding the Cat for the paisley inspiration. For you and you alone, I have also included a close-up of the dress that symbolizes my lost youth and intact stomach:
|Listen. Can you hear them crying? I can.|
