It would not be the first time. I kid, because I don't think I've ever flashed my Slimpressions on TV before.
What does one do in situations like this? I mean, I got the itinerary yesterday. MM get in a car and go to the airport and meet your driver and OMG. WHAT DO I DO? First! RAISE $3900 for the OAC! THEN!
SHOP. I had about two minutes to find something to wear, and zero clue of how to dress for such an occasion.
If you ever want to get advice from everyone -- mention that you might be on national TV.
Add other people's idea of What Works On TV Because We Know these things to my own clothing quirks, and that rules out nearly everything you find in a store. I had one afternoon (about two hours with two very tired and children, one who cried the whole time...) to find an outfit, and little funds.
I stopped just short of crying in the middle of Macy's. I DID GOOD, I didn't lose my composure!
You see, my local mall has very few shopping options, and I have many clothing quirks.
This might turn out being part of the interview -- the trouble with EXCESS SKIN AND ALL THAT IS LEFT AND THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO LIVE IN YOUR SKIN, FOR-EVER. Let it be known, not everybody gets to have plastic surgery. Sometimes you have to keep your extra bits. This was only solidified in my afternoon shopping trip that left me with yet another black dress.
Forgive me, fashionable women of the internets, I can't handle colors, short sleeves, short dresses or anything that allows the non-use of Slimpressions because I. will. be. wearing. them. I will be wearing a black 3/4 length sleeved belted dress with a Slimpressions The-Have-Nots and Slimpressions bottoms with Spanx tights. Because I can. And, given the state of my post weight loss and post baby body at 8 years and 1 month post weight loss surgery, I need to.
And if the Slimpressions don't make me feel super, the shoes might help -
