I've been spending money on things that size cannot affect--earrings and shoes. Yesterday, I received a new pair of Birkenstocks in the mail. They are black suede and look a little like Mary Janes. I have an average sized foot (7.5) but in Birkenstocks, I wear a 37, which translates to a size 6! I've also bought about six pairs of earrings in the past two months, too--I really like how larger earrings look good now that my face has slimmed down. Still...I hadn't purchased the things I need the most--until last night.
I ordered two new pair of pants online. I bought two pair--one navy and one black--for school. I also bought two different sizes--but both pair have the best feature of all: a functional drawstring waist! I don't want to invest a lot of money in slacks that I'm only going to wear a month or two, so this seemed the logical choice!
It's funny how reluctant I was to push the "Confirm Purchase" button when I bought the slacks. Part of me worries that they'll be too small--which is a foolish worry, I know. Anything that doesn't fit today will fit next week--or next month. It's an odd and comforting thought--and yet I was reluctant to spend the money on the slacks. Ultimately I did, though--and I have to admit that it'll be nice to have some pants that fit!!
