The accidental capsule wardrobe
|Heyday Judy dress - my old faithful! - and |
I did buy a lot before my holiday. This is more brand-new clothing than I’ve bought at once in years. My reasoning was simple: I’m fed up of looking like a sack o’ crap, and half the reason I look so awful is that very little of what I own fits well. It was time to bite the bullet, accept the gym hadn’t made enough difference in time, and buy stuff that fitted. As well as what’s listed below, I bought new, properly-fitting bras, which make a massive difference.
Anyway, let’s look at the externals – I’ve marked off the brand-new things.

choice, but we did some serious walking
that day and they were comfy.
