    So - we've had bad news...a friends daughter has died and we are going to the funeral in a few days (so sad - but not asking for prayers or sympathy here). So, since it's been 6 yrs since I retired and got rid of work clothes AND lost 53 lbs........I have NOTHING to wear other than jeans!!!!! Yip --- had to go to town today. #1) Price of slacks is OUTRAGEOUS!!!! and 2) After buying myself slacks and DH slacks and a shirt all I could think of was "man, $147.00 -- how much fabric would that have bought"!!!!!! I'm SICK!!!!!!! :shock: :shock:

    Okay -- now I got it out of my system. :)

    A lot to be said for a black skirt with an elastic waistband.

    oops, misread - you LOST weight - then you could pin it. A tunic top to cover all.

    Have you thought about thrift stores? I am transitioning in sizes myself and refuse to buy anything new until I am down a couple of more sizes. (Sorry about the loss)

    Been thinking thrift stores for a long time....around here all I could find were flannel shirts. LOL As for expensive...yes, 2 pairs of slacks and a shirt --- the clothes for hubby cost more and they were ALL on sale!!! we didn't go to Walmart! I'd been doing the cheaper way for a long time...been at this weight for 3 yrs so thought I could splurge...especially since I only pay $16.00 for my jeans!!!!

    Although I sympathize with you for having to go out an purchase some new clothes -- you needed them. And you can always find more fabric but the friend will forever remember your attendance at her daughter's service. The gift of friendship and being there for your friend can not be replaced.
