Giving up my happy blue dress

This was once my favourite sunner dress. It’s short and bright and makes me smile. I wore it when I was a skinny binny 8 stone and it looked fab. It is more than a little bit tight these days and it is, very sadly. time to wave it goodbye.

Me and this dress went to Rome together, camped together with my husband on our first ever holiday. We went to a festival together and had a yearly strawberries and cream party. I have had it almost 10 years. Now it squashes and squeezes just too much as you can see in the photo. It needs a new home.

Yes I could hold on to it and hope one day I get thinner but this month we are being asked to Give up clothes for good  We are being asked to take quality, unwanted items of clothing to a TK Maxx store. The clothes will be sorted, bagged, labelled and sent to Cancer Research shops around the UK to be sold. All proceeds from the clothing sales will be funnelled into research into beating childhood cancers. Take a look at this

So you see I am actually happy to give up my happy blue dress to a new home. Could you pass something on today?

    I too have a skinny binny blouse. Sigh. Perhaps it’s time to let it go…
