There are a few things I’m struggling with though other than not being able to shove a whole cake in my face, consequence free, and it mostly focuses around what to wear! I have a very small waist and a very generous backside so buying jeans is nearly impossible! Finding shirts which fit my waist but also button over my boobs is another shopping nightmare! Most of all though, I am so upset to have to say goodbye to my size 8 clothes. I have spent years experimenting with my style and have built up a collection of clothes that I love, however with no hope of fitting into them again (and with no real desire to as I am happy enough in my more womanly body), I am having to let them go.
Over the weekend I started to sell some of the 3 bin bags full of size 8 clothes that I’ve been dreading letting go on ebay. The upside though is that I am very excited to go shopping with the money I’ll earn by selling clothes which won’t ever fit me again. I am letting go of my size 8 teenage self and embracing the woman I’ve become.
Here are some of the items I’m selling. If your lucky enough to be a size 8 then please bid if anything takes your fancy here.
1. White All Saints dress 2. Leopard print Miss Selfridges dress 3. Floral Topshop Dress 4. Square print Monsoon dress. 5. Topshop floral skirt.
Have you ever had to give up clothes you loved? Or do you just hoard them even if your never going to wear them again?
