Vintage Silk Beads

I found this dress at the thrift store the week I started Weight Watchers but when I tried it on, it wouldn’t fit. Although I was able to put it on, it was totally unwearable.  But how could I possibly pass on a 100% silk, pink, vintage, beaded dress that just so happened to be $4? I’m usually not the type to buy something just to put it in the “when I lose weight” pile, but considering the fact that I had committed to making a lifestyle change by joining the program, I knew this was a realistic goal to set.

Ever since  I started Weight Watchers, I hang my favorite items on my dressing room door as motivation, and this dress hung there for a few months. Forget the numbers on the scale, fitting into this dress was one of the best ways to measure my success. It’s such an incredible piece! I love the broad shoulders and of course, the open back. Next on my goal list: the red sequin dress from last year’s Moroccan Holiday collection; I’m so close!
