It all started a few weeks ago when I spied a very nice pair of Liz Claiborne jeans. They have beautiful embroidery that I just fell in love with.
I bought them for $3 at my favorite Goodwill store and took them home.
Now I have a “thing “ about wearing thrift shore clothes before they are washed, which is not going to happen so I buy anything I like and bring them home to try on. Then I rush to the shower and wash off anything that might have been using the pants as transportation to it’s next home.
Our Goodwill locations gives you 7 days to return any purchase. If the item fits I run to the laundry room to immediately sanitize my new find. If the item doesn’t work it goes directly back into the bag. While I am not totally freaked out by purchasing thrift clothes, I do it all the time, I take precautions against any unseen critters invading my closet.
So now you know how much I paid for the pants, how nice they are, and that they have been completely sanitized, I bet you are asking your self, “What is she prattling on about?”
Well the pants didn’t fit and in that moment when I realized they were not going to slide over my ample hips I felt defeated. And so the Pants Project was born.
Each Sunday I will try on this pair of Liz Claiborne jeans and see how they fit.
WHY? you ask. Well I have lost 11 lbs. thanks to Weight Watchers and I am ready to shed 11 more so I have decided to up my game and give myself a little extra motivation.
No, I have not lost my mind.
Yes, I am actually going to post pictures of myself trying on a pair to jeans that are too small for me.
And Yes, you can join me in this project if you want. Just let me know how you are doing by posting a comment.
Here goes nothing.
