New Jeans

As my weight loss continues I’m finding myself looking at more figure hugging clothing, in particular slimmer fit.

At one time I would have seen slim fit light coloured clothes and shuddered.

Now I own some! Matched with a purple shirt and my Burgundy pattern waistcoat they look rather stunning! Perfect for Ethryll stage wear, but also good for general summer wear.

The clincher though? Cotton Traders, £18!

At one time I went down the route of 501’s only at £80+ a pair because I thought the brand made me look good. It’s not that way round though, it’s all about you making the clothes look good no matter what the brand.

My Blue Suit

I recently shared a photo of my blue suit on Instagram (@nomenloony) and I’ve received quite a few nice comments about it.

The suit is one I’ve been looking for the perfect version of for years, but I’ve never found one with quite the right fabric or cut. Often the ones you see people wearing to parties are not good quality, or the fabric is not nice to touch.

It came out of a total accident though – a trip to Meadowhall, or more specifically Next, to buy a new suit after my weigh loss had left me with hardly any that fit. Next proved to be fruitless – all the nice suits were skinny fit.

I then tried M&S and found the cut and styling to be drab, and the prices ridiculous for what you were getting (especially considering they were made overseas using cheap labour).

Whilst walking past Burton I just decided to pop in. I wasn’t optimistic.

Turns out I was wrong! Their range was nice and my sizes were available.

I bought two suits. The bright blue one, and one with a lot more teal in it (that’s for a separate post).
