Have you ever owned a piece of clothing, be it the little black dress, those skinny jeans, or that fabulous handbag, that made you feel so freakin' good about yourself?
Until today I don't think I have.
Yes, I felt beautiful on my wedding day, and my dress was gorgeous. But my happiness on that day wasn't derived from my fabulous dress.
Yes, I've felt pretty hot when out dancing with my friends in my halter top and stillettos...but I was having fun because I was out with friends, not because my halter made me look hot.
Until today I have never owned a piece of clothing that made me feel so good about myself to the point that I could rival Julie Andrews singing on a mountain top and kick her ass.
Yesterday I went to NY&Co (my new FAVORITE store thank you very much) because I had the day off and was at the mall anyway. To my sheer delight I found that they were having a buy 1 get one free sale on all their pants.
Having had it pointed out to me recently by a co-worker that my pants were currently hanging off of me I thought "why not?" and in I went.
Now these aren't special edition pants. They aren't fancy even. Regular old run of the mill pants.
But they are in a size smaller than I have ever worn in my entire life.
Even high school.
Now I realize that this will make some of you hate me more, but you know what?
I don't care. I feel too good in my pants.
And though I know that this happiness will one day be thwarted by cheesecake and gravity I know deep down that I will cherish these pants and recall them with sweet memories when that day comes.
