Back in April I purchased this suit in anticipation of a job interview. The company had a hiring freeze and the interview was ultimately rescheduled for today. When the original interview was set, it was a balmy 80 degrees outside. Today was 105- quite a big difference!
Also, the pants appeared to have shrunk, much to my surprise this morning. They were very snug around the hips. I would like to blame the sea air or maybe I'm retaining water (yeah, if I were the Titanic maybe). But I'm guessing this has more to do with the fact that some nights at dinner while on vacation, I actually helped myself to (gulp) three rolls. With butter… Before the appetizer, dinner, and then desert…and somewhere between a glass of wine or two. Of course I would still like to think that it had something to do with the suit being part linen and maybe the dry cleaner shrunk it. It can happen, right?
I sat through a couple hours of interviews trying to ignore the fact that my lower half felt like it was going to burst right out of them. Luckily I got a lot of comments on how nice the suit looked. It will now be going into the closet until I can get in a few sessions at the gym, and until I get out of the habit of eating 4 to 6 meals a day! Such is life while on vacation.
