Fab Finding Follow Up: Losing Weight and Dressing Great

Last week, I shared another fun reader request: this lovely 22-year-old lady lost 20 pounds over the past three months, 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 started 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. To see all the transition phase Fab Finds, go here.

Let's see what you all came up with!

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.

Look #1, created by syako is weight-loss perfect! As she explained, a dress is great for the interim period, because it's not too fitted, so it will still fit when you lose more weight. The tie belt on the coat is ideal for showing off your new figure!

To see a couple more,

Look #2, created by WhiplashGirlchild is so so pretty. I love the bright fuchsia of the top, and she threw in some great accessories to jazz it up. Everything is pretty budget-friendly, so you won't have to spend too much on your transitional duds.

Look #3, created by alillee is easy and cute. The outfit is work-perfect, and the bag and purple pumps add unexpected flair.
