Come Fab Finding With Me: Losing Weight & Dressing Great

Come Fab Finding With Me: Losing Weight & Dressing Great

Another fun reader request, coming your way! This lovely 22-year-old lady lost 20 pounds over the past three months (good for you!), and she's planning on losing another 20 pounds by the year's end. In the meanwhile, she's "swimming" in her clothes, and needs to get some new ones, especially for work!

She's from Miami and her office dress code is business casual — any type of shoe goes. At night she moonlights as a student, so she's looking for some pieces that are both stylish and professional.

I know you ladies can take care of that, so I'll start you off with this Deux Lux Perforated Foldover Bag, $68, because it's big enough to tote her things between office and school, but it's got a youthful sheen to it. Come back and tell me when your Fab Finds are up and tag them with transition phase.

Oh! Now, you can build outfits by creating a list of clothing items. We have everything you need to build outfits with and you can use your Fab Find bookmarks too. This is an even better way to put together an entire outfit when you are completing your Fab Finding missions.

Congrats!! This outfit should make the transition, because the dress & coat are not form fitting...

She'll definitly stand out in this, in a good way! And when she's ready, the sweater can come off, showing off her newly fab bod! Congratulations on the weight loss! That isn't easy, and it is so great that you pulled that off! I really hope any of the outfits people post for you will help show off not only your body, but your confidence as well!

First off... CONGRATS! A couple of years ago I lost about 30 pounds total, but it was difficult during that "middle period" because my clothes were all baggy but I still wanted to lose more weight and therefore didn't want to buy new clothes just yet. So this outfit works perfectly for that time. With a dress - unlike pants and a skirt - you can still lose about 10-20 more pounds and it will still (most likely) look good. It's not too too fitted, and if after the loss the dress is too loose you can belt it with a fun black wide belt (or take it to the tailor). I added that beautiful red coat because NOW you WANT attention! Right? :) And the boots, tights, red earrings and bag just round the whole thing out. Enjoy your new found body! I know I am enjoying mine (it's so worth it!).

Here's mine. Make sure the top is tucked in so you can see the buttons on the pants.
