For those of you who thrift, do you ever buy things without trying them on at the thrift store? Erm, I tend to not try things on and sometimes regret it A thrifting friend (ahhh… I accidentally typed ‘thrifted’ friend!) of mine and I have a little saying: “Don’t shed a thread for the Goodwill.” You know, it just feels … a little shady in the Goodwill sometimes. It’s not really the kind of place in which I want to remove my clothing.
So. This button-up is one of the many items that I’ve purchased without trying it on. I brought it home, pulled it out of the bag, put it on, and … couldn’t button it. Literally. Couldn’t button it. I was still in the midst of losing some baby weight and really, really felt like I would be able to lose it, so I saved this shirt. Last week, I pulled it back out to see if I can wear it now. And, well, as you can see above, I can button it now! I’m not entirely sure what I did right as I don’t diet or exercise, but yay!
