    I buy a variety of sizes at the thrifts, and donate them as my body changes, so I usually have a backlog of wearable pieces.

    Speaking of current fashion, I know I've expressed my admiration for loose, layered clothing before, so it's no surprise I drool over these offerings from the Chinese site Buykud: www.buykud.com

    I have lost 72 lbs in the past 18 months. My rule was to purchase clothing only if what I owned truely doesn't fit. As in it is baggy and doesn't hang well. A little loose is ok but too loose and you no longer are motivated by how different your clothing fits. I have gone from an 18/20 pant to a size 10. Size 2x shirt to a large. So as you can imagine I have gone through quite a bit of clothing purchase trips in the last year. I never buy more than a handful of clothes, just enough to get me to wash day with an outfit to spare. Just yesterday I purchased three pairs of jeans in a size 10 because all I owned were capris for the summer and it's starting to get too chilly with daytime temps in the 60's.

    That's an amazing weight loss, artist! I can understand not wanting to buy clothing for the "intermediate" weights.
