If The Shoe Fits…

If the shoe fits…wear it!

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure whoever came up with that saying was skinny.  Because let’s face it, there are lots of times in my life when the only thing I can find that fits are my shoes.

If I had written that saying, it would be something like “If the pants fit (even if you have to lay on the bed holding your breath while wearing 2 pairs of Spanx), wear them….especially if they make your butt look smaller.”

This weekend I’m at the Killer Tribes Conference in Nashville.  And since I’ve gained 52 pounds since the beginning of December, I can honestly say, my shoes are just about the only things that fit.

There’s something about conferences that makes me want to look my best.  I only get 1 chance to make a first impression, but when I could only come up with 5 spring/summer outfits that fit (besides workout clothes) and 2 of those were dirty, I had to improvise.

Although my outfits aren’t super impressive in and of themselves, I do have cute shoes.  At least I know I’m putting my best foot forward. (Pun intended!)

So if you’re at Killer Tribes this weekend, I’ll be the girl in either red high heels or lime green snakeskin ballet flats. I’d love to meet you.

For everyone else who I won’t get to meet this weekend, I’d love to hear from you too.

Tell me how you spice up a wardrobe of ill fitting clothes in a size you’re not happy about!

    I hear you completely, but there is no magic wand. Our bodies change and it really stinks! I used to be a “string bean” most my life, then went through Menopause at 45 yrs old. it’s been attack of the fat since.
    Of course, if we could afford it, like Dr. Phil’s wife, we could go to a very expensive Health clinic that takes Blood tests to figure exactly what you need to balance your system. I am sure someone making your meals would be helpful too!
    I do not have an answer for you, but I can feel your discomfort in this situation Spandex and a smile:)
