shopping has never been so stressful

well, today was the big day. i finally went shopping (with some trusty personal shoppers - thanks, ladies!) for clothes that fit.

it was a very overwhelming experience. now 60 pounds down, it is very hard to see myself in this "new" way. i have a hard time believing smaller sizes fit and that it does not look too tight. luckily, i had two very supportive companions helping me out. i think i got the hang of it by the end of the afternoon.

here is what i got...
white shirt & kelly green pants - gap
 jeans - gap
teal sweater & jeans - nordstrom
 black skirt & purple tank - nordstrom
black blazer - nordstrom
 pink sweater - nordstrom
cream cardigan & denim button-up - nordstrom
black pants - the limited

additionally, i bought a pair of skinny jeans that are being hemmed at nordstrom and hopefully can be picked up before the end of this coming week. 

did i spend a lot of money? yes. much more than i anticipated. i figure, though, that most of the pieces i got can be mixed and matched so i should get a lot of use out of everything. the only purchase i am still debating over is the pink sweater. it was the priciest item AND it is cashmere which means dry clean only - i hate clothes that are dry clean only. then again, the skirt is too so i will see how i feel over the next week.

and, as i promised jacob, i did not buy shoes, purses or jewelry.

sorry about the lighting, the flash on the camera was making my eyes look wonky. : )
