Fashion Forum Friday: A Small Feat Accomplished

After tearfully forcing myself to resume and stick with my normal exercise schedule along with buying all of the Walden Farm products that I can find (unless their stuff is melting my insides, I don't want to hear a negative peep about them! And if they are, I'm still not certain that I do), I am officially back down to my pre-Christmas weight!

This is, of course, according to my Lucky Brand Zoe straight jeans. I don't own a scale, but these pants are un-for-giv-ing! They don't lie.

Therefore, my fashion forum Friday item is: JEANS!

Lucky Brand remains my favorite to date because a few of their styles just seem to always fit my particular shape. I more or less went up a size over Christmas break (I blame it on my sister, who had to stay fairly well nourished, as she was nursing a baby. It's not like I wanted her to eat alone. That would be RUDE!), and despite my increased size requirement, the Sweet n' Low style never fails to flatter.

So, if you find that you have more of a defined waist with broader hips and a fuller shapely rear, try Lucky's Sweet n' Low style and a few others as well.

Like many brands, Lucky can get pricey, but the product will last a million years so consider the purchase an investment. They're certainly not throw away jeans.

Here's another trick of mine: If you gain a bit of weight and your jeans are uncomfortable, don't torture yourself. Go buy the appropriate size in your favorite style, and you will feel much better about yourself. Put your smaller jeans in storage. Sure, the weight might come off again, but there's no sense in the smaller jeans hanging around in your closet taunting you. Weight gain happens to the best of us, and there's no sense in walking around beating ourselves up. We need to focus our energy on positive things! God did not intend for us to walk around miserable because we don't meet the world's standards. We are His beautiful creation!

Likewise, if you do lose weight, get the good ol' skinnies out, but do not, by any means, get rid of the larger sizes. Put them in storage as well. Life is unpredictable and often so is weight fluctuation. I'm in my smaller size now, but who knows. I might fall off of my health train, or my metabolism might change as I continue to approach the end of my 20's. I don't plan on emptying my arsenal of Lucky jeans any time soon! My larger *ahem* shapely lower half (regardless of size) shall always remain adorned in Lucky.
