I’ve loved fashion ever since I was a little girl. Dreams of Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Gucci kept me sane through many years of adversity. I never actually expected that I would be able to own such things, but I have been blessed in recent years. However, no matter how great designer accessories can be, there are a few items that I can’t buy because of my weight. My new weight loss journey is feeling very real so I have decided to make a tangible list to work off of. So here it goes.. what I plan to buy when I am skinny!
True Religion Jeans
I can’t tell you for how long I have wanted a pair of black, skinny True Religion jeans. They create a beautiful silhouette and match everything. My designer jeans dream doesn’t stop there, as I can’t wait to own Citizens of Humanity, BB, J Brand, Dsquared2, R13 and more.
Burberyy Trench Coat
I fell in love with this coat years ago but it was my last trip to Italy that sent me over the edge. After visiting countless Burberry outlets, I saw every variation you could imagine and for great prices. They were studded, patterned, lined, even bedazzled! It will certainly be one of my first “skinny” purchases.
I used to want to be a lawyer, so this was at the top of my list. However, those dreams changed and now I am in the PR field. I still will need at least one good suit, right? I’m not sure that I would ever be able to afford a Chanel suit, but a girl can dream. It is one of the few fashion pieces that hasn’t changed over the years. Truly, a classic that I would love to have in my closet.
La Perla Lingerie
As a child, my favourite books were the Gossip Girl series. I could escape away into a world that at the time, I thought I would never be a part of. I remember reading about Blair Waldorf trying to carefully plan the loss of her virginity. For some reason, her stop at the La Perla store stayed in my mind and now I wouldn’t hate to own a beautiful piece of lingerie. It isn’t exactly something most fat girls have worn before so you can imagine how exciting ” being sexy” sounds.
Prada is known for their fun dresses. Every time I am in the store I envision my (skinnier) self in one with opaque black tights and cute flats. It just seems like such a lovely daytime look. Prada’s mix of quirky patterns and feminine lines is just so, me!
Designer Bathing Suit
My dream is pretty much to look like Kim Kardashian in a bathing suit. I don’t care who makes it; Gucci, Burberry, Shoshanna, Emilio Pucci, whatever! As long as I look great in it. If I can ever successfully pull off a bikini, even better. I think I would faint.
Ultimately, when I reach my goal weight I am going to go on the shopping spree of a lifetime. My plan is to head back to Italy and stock up on designer pieces for unbelievably cheap prices. You don’t even know how excited I am just to shop at J. Crew, Forever 21 and Banana Republic. Finally, I will be able to wear clothes because I like them and not just because they fit!
