I may have done something silly yesterday so I hope you guys can offer me confirmation that what I did was not totally whackadoodley dumb. I bought this little gem of a dress online because I was taking advantage of a HUGE Anthropologie sale. I got this $198 dollar dress for $29. Complete steal, right?!
The problem is that I have not been buying clothes since I am actively loosing weight. However, with this being a dress I have been drooling over for two months combined with an unbelievable price, I made the crazy decision to buy the dress in a size 8 which is my goal size. I am currently a 12 and hoping to get into a size 8. Which may seem big to some of you out there but to this gal who was once a 24, this single digit seems dreamy. I just hope this dress will not be hanging in the closet and putting additional pressure on myself. I know I can always return it which is probably why I allowed myself to buy it in the first place...however, I just keep playing the scenario in my head of wearing a size 8 dress that I got on sale for less than $30 bucks, total superhero moment. The idea of it knocks my socks off, even more than being served chocolate cake by John Cena.
So is this idea of buying small and hoping to get there crazy or smart? I need your advice ladies before I get it in the mail, open it up and drool all over it.
