I'm gonna get dressed for success
Shaping me up for the big time, baby
Get dressed for success
Shaping it up for your love
The above lyrics are by Roxette, a band I've liked since I first saw the movie "Pretty Woman" with Richard Geré and Julia Roberts. The song isn't featured in the movie but most of the time when I discover a "new" artist I search for more of their songs to get a feel for the kind of music they make.
I'm not here to talk about music though, I do that every Sunday at 2pm in my music class which is generally a big success with my students. They really enjoy the class as it's something different and I never do the same thing twice in a row.
Today I want to talk about clothes... You know girls' talk and all. I went shopping on Friday and fell in love with a gorgeous cream-coloured wool dress and a fabulously sylish black wool skirt. Despite the extravagant price tag on both items I threw caution into the wind and handed over my bank card after my fish told me twice: 喜欢就买啊 (If you like it just buy it)！Both pieces fit me like a glove and made me feel super-awesome. For the first time in like EVER I got the chance to ask my friend to get me a SMALLER size because the one I chose was TOO BIG for me.
I'm reaping the pleasures of having lost more than 35kg...I actually enjoy shopping a lot more now. I don't go crazy buying new clothes but when I see something I really like that also looks good on me I do treat myself...even if it's a little pricey. Sometimes you just have to splurge a little. Especially when you know that you deserve it. I can actually wear some figure-hugging clothes now and it doesn't make me look like a sausage. I think I'm starting to enjoy my body a lot more and it does help that I keep getting loads of lovely comments from friends and colleagues. That's the best kind of encouragement I could ask for.
The fish also likes what he sees for he can't take his eyes (or hands) off me whenever we are together. Every guy loves having a sexy girlfriend to show off and my fish hit the double jackpot. Not only does he have a foreign girl to show off he also has a sexy girl to show off (his words, not mine, I'm not that vain).
