The best thing about inspiration or ‘thinspiration’ it’s random, motivational and most times a savior. I’ve been in a fashion/weight rut for a while now, I’ve become tired with my workout routine, I don’t feel like I’m loosing weight which, snowballs into me not wanting to workout out. Not to mention I feel like a hefty hog nor do I have the urge to put on decent attire, cut to me in fat people clothing a la (chino, sweats, and cargo pants). As always Skinny-Jesus gave me a reason to put down the salt and vinegar potato chips and sweat.
A follower on Instagram suggested I download the Nike+ running app, I must say, I love it! It give me goals, progress reports and rewards that motivate me to workout more, and keep tabs on my slacker friends. While attempting to earn a new badge on the app during a 11 mile run I passed by the Exploration Place science museum. I jog pass this building weekly and somehow today it really caught my eye. I don’t know if it was how the sunlight was hitting the building or reflecting off the water and windows however, I had to stop take a snapshot to send to my site photographer Mike Saisi to see if he could shoot me there for my next post.
Only thing, I had nothing in mind to wear. That was until I was getting ready for a job interview. I was going though my site for thinspiration and I came across a post I did back in February where I use a picture from Vogue Homme Japan summer/13 issue of a model dressed in Dior Homme, I decided to recreate this look.
Instead of blue and red I went with black red, and white. I got this striped boat sweater from JC Penny’s, Pant’s from Express and oxford from Tommy Hilfiger. After my interview (that went well) I met up with my photographer to snap a few pics. Pleased with this look I feel like I’ve got my skinny back, minus these clothes looking a tad bit large but I did buy these garments a year ago when I weighed more.
Moral of the story… Don’t Be Fat!
