Frock on Friday- A Weighty Matter



This is not a vintage dress I'm showing you today.

But it is one of my old favourites from the 90s, and I'm very excited to be able to show it to you....simply because I now fit into it again.

I didn't really 'announce it' here on the blog, (you know, in case it didn't work) but over the past few months I've been on a diet.

Yes it's such a little word, isn't it, but oh what power it has! Cruel, evil, and alcohol-and-chocolate free....serves me right for eating too much in the first place, eh?


While I do believe that the inside of a person is far more important than the outside, and I certainly don't dislike people based on their appearance, for me my weight has always had a HUGE bearing on my confidence and it matters a lot. Not to mention that I could hardly fit into any of my stock.

I'm not quite where I want to be yet, still a few kilos to go...I'm not sure if you can tell but I'm sucking in my stomach for all I'm worth in these pics!


I've been very a bit naughty since I had my teeth op but I'll be back on the wagon as of Monday, sipping 'delicious' mineral water and scoffing 'yummy' fat-free casseroles. This is what I'll be telling myself, anyway.


Self-satisfied? Yes, thanks for asking

And for my Favourite thing on a Friday, how gorgeous are these hand-beaten copper earrings?! They would match this dress so perfectly...sigh!




Pop on over to Mimi & Tilly to see more Friday faves.

Your diet was clearly a success... you have an absolute killer figure! Very femme fatale! :)

Wowie Wow Wow! Of course what's inside a person is the most important (i know many people I can't even tolerate unless one of us has a stiff drink inside us) but your outsides are looking amazing. Lovely dress, too.

Tomye said...

Congratulations! It is such a good feeling to fit into an old favourite. You look like a pin-up model! -T

Holy catfish Momma....your a hottie!
Look out they are going to be following you everywhere!

Elegancemaison said...

Wow - you look stunning in these pics! I was about to ask for your dieting tips then read on to see, " no alcohol or chocolate", and now admire your effort even more. Well done you! ( BTW how lucky to retain your magnificent bosom throughout. When I diet the fat immediately goes from there whilst sticking stubbornly in my thighs...)

Coedith said...

You look great. It is hard work but it is worth it. (so I tell myself)

Vintage Coconut said...

Oh Kitty you look absolutely gorgeous!!
Smokin hot if I do say so myself.
Your determination pulled off.
Now don't lose too much more as you look really great. Cause I would still like to be able to SEE you on future Frock on Fridays. *lol* =D (I don't want to mistake you for a tree branch wrapped in some vintage fabric) *heheheh*
That dress is very nice vintage or not.
If you went saling I hope you found some good stuff!

You look fabulous, but then I thought you looked fabulous before. It's not a diet, they never work, it's a lifestyle baby.

Zootsuitmama said...

You look really pretty in that pink! And congrats! how did you do it?

Miss Emmi said...

Congratulations! I'd love to hear a few tips about self-control, I can feel myself putting on a few and am on the verge of not being able to put on my favourite pieces anymore, but even so I can't seem to put down the chocolate and macarons! Help!

Mimi and Tilly said...

You look ruddy amazing in that dress! Well done you for all your hard dieting work. I've been on a health kick and since March 22nd this year have lost 24lbs (it was 28 but I went on holiday and the wheels fell off my diet wagon a bit!) I've decided I want to lose 12 more lbs to hit my target weight. Onwards and upwards. You look fab. Thanks for the link-up and for posting the pic of my earrings. Em xx

pastcaring said...

LOOK AT THAT BOD!
Oh my word, Kitty, you look completely amazing!
You are right, the inside is of course more important than the outside, but clearly all of us here have SOME interest in the outside or we wouldn't be bothered about clothes!
You look about right to me, don't lose too much more, you don't want to forfeit your magnificent boobage!
Pink looks fabulous with your hair.
And you have every right to look self-satified, after all that self-denial!! xxxx

HI Kitty, you have every right to feel smug, you look amazing in that dress. Well done on the self-control I could do with a bit of that. Love those earrings and yes, they would go so well with that dress.

sacramento said...

I couldn´t agree more with you, more than beauty is a matter of a weight I feel agile and right in.
You look fabulous in that dress, Kitty.
it took me a morning of sewing, fiddly more than hard work.
besos, GUAPA.
