I got sucked into a banner ad offering 30% off at Old Navy last week and went to town. When I shop on-line I’m of the “I’ll just try it on, you can always return it mentality”. When I was 23, I spent a million dollars at Banana Republic one year buying work clothes and became a Luxe member for life so I always get free shipping which makes it worth it.
Below is all the stuff I bought, tried on, and promptly put back in the bag to be returned. I’m not sure what sort of body I thought I had while I was perusing the clothes, but I purchased a ton of spaghetti strap dresses. Seriously? Like my nursing boobs could ever handle that.
The jersey dress below had potential, and I liked the pattern, but it ruched funny around my waist. I’m sure it would look adorable on some of you.
Then I bought a romper. A ROMPER. I’m pretty sure there is an age cutoff for that, but if there isn’t, there is definitely a body cut off and I have missed the mark. I also need to learn that those elastic waistbands just look hideous on me.
I did buy (and keep) the below wrap dress. I’m struggling a bit with finding work clothes that don’t require me to get fully undressed to pump and this fits the bill. Plus it was under $30. I wore it to the office with a white blazer and nude heels. I meant to take photo in the huge mirror in the bathroom at work, but I forgot. Would you guys like to see how things looks on a regular lumpy body as opposed to the one below?
