Casual Capsule Collection

this is my new casual capsule for fall/winter 2009/2010.
hopefully i'll finish it before the end of winter.

i have been living off the same 2 pairs of jeans and over-sized t-shirts since losing about 15lbs. this is what i tell everyone, just in case they are wondering why a design student is dressed so shabbily.

actually, no one cares i've got no clothes to wear. all they want to know is: how did i lose all that weight? *sigh*

anyway, here's my formula:

1. go vegetarian. especially if you hate vegetables. that way, you are never in danger of over-eating
2. keep off the carbo.......resist, resist, resist. biscuits, cakes, crisps etc
3. no fats.......no fried food, no cream cakes, ice-cream etc. use low fat milk.
4. eat only during the 3 meals. in my case, i skipped breakfast which is NOT a good thing at all! that's because i can't wake up in time to get ready AND eat.
btw, some experts say it's better to eat smaller portions 5 times a day.
5. go walking, preferably where the landscape undulates wildly. great for a good sweat.
6. stop eating after 9pm.

one last word: i still have the dreaded jelly-belly.
the only thing that works for that (i've been told) is the equally dreaded crunches and it takes at least 3 months to see the slightest improvement.

i've decided it's easier to hide it.
so the capsule consists of baggy drawstring pants, drawstring skirt, a dress and overshirts that skimp past the waist and tum.

i think i'll use a linen/silk combination, which would be nice and cool in this hot, humid climate.
