What I DO know is clothes I would love to wear when I see them. And since I am embarking on a major (with a big M) weight loss journey, I will eventually be able to wear clothes like these without worrying that although I may be the best dressed person in the room, I'll also be the largest.
"One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn't belong" ...
I've been such a large size for so many years that I am reaaaallly looking forward to fitting into cute clothes again. It's been too many years since I could shop sizes that didn't have an X after the number. And the choices in that range, trust me, are very rarely flattering.
So for what it's worth, this post will be a running one. I'll be adding to it, occasionally subtracting from it (when I look back and think "where was my head?") The only requirement? These clothes, jewelry and accessories have to SING to me. I have to be able to envision myself in them, feeling and looking fabbity-fabulous and self-assured, whether they're casual or dressy.
This is where I'm going to post a whole lot of inspiration for myself. Losing all this weight is going to be hard, and as much as I know I've got to lose it for health reasons, I've got to admit that the prospect of post-fat shopping is going to be like a birthday party.
A truly great birthday party!
p.s. Because I love gowns so much (and hope to somebody have a reason to wear (a non-bridal) one, I am going to keep them off of this post. Otherwise they'd crowd pretty much everything else out. I'll likely start a completely new post for those.

(The two above remind me of Sharon Stone showing up at the Oscars in a Gap shirt and long, full skirt. So gamine-meets-glamour, loved it on sight).
(I will never get over my 80's obsession with the ballet flat).
(A touch of military makes this jacket sheer perfection).
