This is just my beginning

So far it seems like the cheat day on Nutrisystem worked! Surprise. I never weigh 134 in the middle of the day but today I did. I hope I can get down to 130…without having another cheat day. EDIT: I now weigh 133!!!!!!!111!!!! The cheat day totally worked. Yay! I have lost 9 pounds on NS. 3 more to go? I’m quitting the program in the end of July and doing the same thing on my own.

“NEW” CLOTHES ALERT. I have a brand new wardrobe. Coats, pants, skirt suits, blouses, etc. The only downside is that all of these clothes have to be dry cleaned. I even have a 100% cashmere coat. I kid you not!!! (O god, how much will that cost to dry clean?)  Some of the blouses I’m wearing without dry cleaning. There is no shame in my game.

(Btw, I got these clothes from a well off couple at an estate sale)

So yeah, I got about $3000 worth of clothes for $25. No biggie. That is not the norm. I just got lucky with this lot of clothes. The other clothes were worth about $5000 and went for $200. That is more the norm for estate sales.

This dress by Nina Ricci will probably be my go to interview outfit. I dunno. I have 3 to choose from. I just love purple so this is a front runner:

Here is the vintage bag from Monsac. It came with a dust bag. I will probably try to sell it on Etsy. It is too white and small for me.

I love, love, love this skirt. It is in the bottom of my “to be dry cleaned” box and I’m too lazy to go find out the designer.

This isn’t everything. I would be here all night if I took pics of everything. I have 2 Chanel pants that I love but are underwhelming in photos. I’m selling 5 of the items out of about 25.

I know it isn’t cool to blog about what designer clothes you have. But:

  1. I brought these used.
  2. I got picked on daily for my clothes all throughout regular school and college….and occasionally by “grown ups” in the workplace!

So I don’t feel at all bad about posting this. YAY, new clothes. I love clothes. 🙂 🙂 I know I’m going to freak when I see how much these clothes cost to dry clean. lol.
