Those of you who are already following me on my Social Media channels (Facebook page and Instagram account) you probably know how much I've evolved with My Body Journey (more than I imagined I would succeed, to be honest to the end) and you noticed how much my body has changed.
I can honestly tell you that until recently, mentally, I didn't even keep up with the changes in my body. For example, last summer I was on holiday in Greece and at one point I thought I deserved a two-piece swimsuit. I went into a large lingerie store and started looking directly for the large-sized district. After about two minutes of searching, with a slight hint of frustration, I asked for the help of a saleswoman because I could not find measures larger than XL. I didn't even look at the patterns or prints. She was very nice and guided me quickly, and the moment I arrived in front of that shelf I realized that in fact I don't need such a big measure anymore. It was a moment of awakening to reality when I realized that I wasn't really keeping up with my body changes.. Have you ever had a distorted image of yourself?
And because we keep talking about changes, the beautiful part of this journey is to notice how beautiful my body is being reshaped. The less beautiful part is that I have to change my wardrobe very often. Not that this would be unpleasant for a woman who is passionate about fashion, but it is quite expensive for the pocket. In these conditions I was forced to adapt and look for the best offers. I did not turn into a hunter of discounts and offers, but I have a few online stores that I subscribed to and whose offers I consult constantly, but also a few stores in the mall that you visit regularly. But you also know that stores only have a few discounts per year, so I go to online ones more often.
My advice is to take action and not be guided by the number you normally wear. You also know that the measurements differ from brand to brand, and the fact that you know how much you have in your waist, thighs and bust will help you a lot to take clothes that will fit you perfectly at any time.
This helped me a lot when I chose this white dress (which reminds me of tennis players' skirts) and which I honestly tell you that if I didn't measure myself I wouldn't have put it in my shopping cart for that I knew that Desigual's measures were a little smaller. Desigual is one of my favorite brands, but sometimes the prices seem a bit high. So imagine how happy I am when I find offers for my pocket, as it was with the dress, sweater and bag below.
On this occasion, I also present this cheerful outfit, which I wore the other day during a visit to the salon. The dress, sweater, bag and sports shoes are purchased from Bibloo.ro, my latest discovery. A new online store that entered the Romanian market this year and has a generous offer of luxury brands such as USPolo Assn, Armani Jeans, Hugo Boss and Tommy Hilfiger (and others) at affordable prices. In fact, what attracted me were the constant offers I receive in the mail and which help me make smart purchases for my wardrobe.
I advise you not to miss the section bags and footwear because you find very good pieces of material, from brands that are harder to reach in terms of price to some irrefutable offers.
E.g, Sketchers Equalizer Expect Miracles sneakers with memory foam sole that has Dual-Lite technology are the most comfortable and soft sneakers I've ever tried. I can't wait to wear them to training and I'm convinced they will improve my style and running time. Besides the fact that now you can find them reduced to 50%, know that they also have half numbers.
I also advise you to sign up for VIP program and benefit from VIP status. At first I opted for the free version and then I upgraded to the VIP Silver package. After placing the first order, I am sure that you will do the same.
The products come from the Czech Republic and arrive in 3 days.
