After losing 45lbs, I'm discovering old outfits that I haven't worn in ages. It's a lot of fun - especially when they are clothes I wore in Japan. Fond memories of teaching! However, this has also caused me to create a self-imposed ban on buying any new outfits because why buy more clothes if I'm *hopefully* going to keep losing weight?

Having said that, I made a few exceptions yesterday. If there's one thing that's hard for a plus size girl to find, it's suit pieces. For those of you taller and thinner folk, consider yourselves especially lucky when it comes to professional wear. Most suits are made for people of a certain height and frame. Anything outside of that shape just looks odd and box-y. =/ So when I saw Lane Bryant had light-weight spring jackets on sale, I snatched two up; one in white and one in black:

The camisoles underneath were suggested by the shop's staff, and I really like them. The jackets are amazing because they completely fit without any tailoring whatsoever. Do you know how hard that is for hippy, slope-shouldered, 5'2" me??! I'm super excited to finally have decent fitting jackets for potential job interviews. Ones made out of BREATHABLE materials so I won't roast in the summer sun.

The other thing I picked up was a pure indulgence. I certainly don't need one more top, but this was too cute to pass up:

These shirts were really popular in Japan when I was living there, but the style hadn't come stateside yet, so I was always disappointed that I couldn't find similar clothes to match the Japanese girls'. I'm sure even their styles have moved on from this point. Leave it to the U.S. to be behind the times. :(
