Question Do you have a "target outfit"?

Hi all!
There is a thread on 3FC about those of us who have a piece of clothing to "remember" when we were larger.
Which got me to thinking --
Does anyone here have a target outfit? Something they want to fit back into? Or something they have bought with the hopes of fitting into? Or a piece of "dream clothing" that they WILL buy when they reach their goal?

Oh, I so have a target outfit. Loose (yes, loose) blue jeans with a white blouse tucked in (yes, tucked in, not flapping and fooling no one), sandals, and a straw purse. Going to drive up to Point Reyes Station, go to the Station House Cafe, have myself a salad, and then walk in all my glory down Kehoe Beach.

It's not a "final target" outfit, but, I did buy a Size 12 dress that I just had to have. I'm nearly there. And I have a sewing machine so once I get lower I can tailor my clothes.

Old, faded size 34 jeans I wore when I was thin and maybe an awesome stripped XL Bitten sweater I have hanging in my closet. The jeans are men's GAP jeans and I LOVE THEM!

This swimsuit. I am in love with it, and as soon as I have the stomach (and guts) to wear it in public, I will buy it!

I have some clothes that are a size too small for me. They are not necessarily a "target outfit" since I have a far bit more to go, but they act as a motivation piece. Once I fit into those clothes, I think I will keep buying smaller sizes to keep me going.

Yes and no. I bought a skirt on clearance about 5 years ago with the intention of getting into it. It was only 2 sizes lower than I was at the time but dog dang- it's taken me a very long time to finally fit into it. The good news is that it FITS.

I have a series of 'dream outfits' or whatever you want to call them. The first goal I have technically obtained but not quite. My first goal was to get down into a size 16 so I can buy clothes in the REGULAR SIZES dept. again. Farewell 'Women's' section. I went to a store last week that has both regular and womens' departments and discovered I am smack in between. The stuff in Womens is too big and the stuff in the regular department is still too snug. I'll go again when I get off another 6-7 lbs. and see if that does it.

I haven't thought too much about getting lower than that though. Too overwhelming for me. I have to take this one day at a time.

1st goal- ONEDERLAND! Check!
2nd goal- Less than 194 (a number I've been stuck at before) CHECK!
3rd goal- Reach the 180's- haven't been there since 1999. CHECK!
4th goal- 180 which means hitting the 50 lbs. lost mark! Check!
5th goal- Switching to size goals now more than pounds goals. Goal is to make it to size 12, at whatever weight that happens. CHECK!
6th goal- Size 10! (can't even believe this is possible!)
7th goal- Size 8 and MAINTAIN!

I have a few pairs of size 10 capris I bought last summer at the Express on clearance thinking I'd fit into them this year... still a goal with a few months left.

Well, yes, there's a fantasy dress that I wore as a bridesmaid at my friend's wedding back in 1993. It's black crepe, and was fitted like a glove. It was the last time I looked in a mirror and went, "whoa - hot!" It's in the back of my closet. I don't know what's possible yet - I had a 26 inch waist back then.

I bought a dress online that was on super sale and was cute, but it was nonreturnable due to being clearance and I was optimistic and bought a Medium, but it's a little too tight in the boobs. I MAY be able to get away with wearing it with a cute little black cardigan or bolero but I'm holding out on wearing it at all until it really fits and I don't have to worry about my twins getting all squished haha.
