In other news, Hell just froze over...

So something very strange happened to me today. I was at the mall returning something when I decided to pop in to American Eagle, because I've been on the hunt for a jean jacket. When I walked in, they had these white capris on sale for 19.99 from 55, so I decided to give them a try.


(sorry for the black bra in mirror... i promise i make better undergarment choices in public!)

They were boyfriend fit. The girl asked me what size and I said I wasn't sure, maybe an 8 or a 10. She said she thought I looked smaller and that they fit a size or two big. She gave me a six and an eight. They were huge. I asked for the four (!!) and she came back saying they were out, but to try the two (!!) I did, and they fit. Amazingly. Not boyfriendy at all, tight but that's better on us ass-less wonders anyways. But how freaking crazy is that? I really have been pretty much over specific sizing - I try on things ranging from small to xl most times I go shopping? But a two- that's crazy! I won't expect it to happen again soon, but if anyone needs a confidence boost get to American Eagle!

Wow - totally exciting! When you started this journey did you ever imagine yourself in a size 2?
Ans those are totally awesome capris - When you get to a size zero can I have those for my goal pants? Ha HA

I would either never take that sticker off, or I'd wear them inside out so everyone could see! I'm actually not above wearing a sign taped to me saying "my skinny ass fits into a size 2!!!!" Too much? :)

Lynda said...

I agree with Gilly...I would never take the sticker off. Walk around proudly! You look super duper cute in the them. I like Maria would have picked up one in every colour!

TracyZ said...

OMFG!!! I would do what everyone else said, but all together...

Buy every color they had and would never take the sticker off. Ever. And I would point it out to every person I see while wearing the pants.
