Cool beans! That's awesome when folks can benefit one another...Getting nice clothes at a time of transition, a time you really don't want to go and buy a whole wardrobe, is definitely a hand up from a friend.
I know what you mean about saggy butt jeans - I've gone from a 26/28 to a 22 jeans, but I've lost in my butt and hips. Relaxed-fit jeans with tapered legs now make me look like I'm in a big ice cream cone, all hips.
At the advise of Clinton and Stacey on "What Not to Wear", I tried some boot cut jeans on and love them. Even found a pair of medium-rise boot cut jeans at The Salvation Army Thrift Store for $2.99 -- gotta love 'em! I was surprised how many plus-sizes they had there.
I'm babbling. Just happy for you, because I know how much better I felt when I got some clothes that FIT again. It's a problem, losing a wardrobe to weight loss --- WAIT, no, it's not! It's a happy problem to have. Kiss those old clothes goodbye, 'cause this is a one-way journey, right?
