Disclaimer: I am not a clothes fanatic. I’m really pretty simple when it comes to fashion.
When I moved to North Carolina almost 8 years ago, one of the first things I did was update my wardrobe. I bought a few suits, several shirts, slacks, and shoes. Man, I felt like a million bucks. I remember I was rocking the three-button suits with cuffs on my slacks, and I had a few shirts with a collar bar. Look it up, it’s pretty sweet. Keep in mind, this was 2008, not 1990.
A few years later, I had lost around 25 pounds and couldn’t fit into these clothes anymore. Plus, when I started shopping around again, my eyes were attracted to the slim or tailored style of clothes, two-button suits and colorful socks. That was all good, except I didn’t particularly like the fact that I only got a couple of years out of the stuff I bought in ’08. Nonetheless, because of my weight loss, the wardrobe replacement was necessary – it wasn’t really an option to keep what I had. I would have been swimming in it!
