The struggle’s been real over the past months. Will be honest and real with you in terms of the body kind of topic as it’s really been a battle for me over the past year or so. I still will touch upon my weight and body transformations theme in a couple of my upcoming ‘Living with Insulin Resistance’ series, but I think that my latest picture show more and more of my change.
So to cut a long story short, over the past 2 years I gained more than 20kg, which is absolutely surreal. And, yes, I’ve been trying to hide this fact by means of a more loose kind of trousers, sweaters and dresses. But this trick didn’t seem to work as I didn’t feel myself wearing most of such clothes. That is why I decided to have a comeback to my favourite style direction, which is all about eye-catchy, sensual and daring pieces and outfits.
Speaking of the struggle, it’s more about the fact that local stores out here in Riga more often don’t have the sizes of the pieces I like, and I’m currently around size UK 12 and 14 – this depends on tops and bottoms. Though, the brand that’s been saving me in this situation is my beloved Femme Luxe. Thankfully, their online store has a big variety of sizes – including UK 14 – and a big variety of pieces in that exact style that I like.
By the way, this little black dress was found by me at Femme Luxe back in December. Though the delivery took more time than I expected, so it arrived just last week and not for the New Years Eve. But, hey, the Old New Year is almost here! Shall we celebrate it once again?
