What I'm Wearing #9

So I'm a little behind on blog posting, but here's what I wore on christmas day.

A gorgeous dress from Dotti. Mumma Bear bought this dress for me and I love it- it has my favourite colour in it (that's purple if you didn't know by now). I usually like to dress up a bit for christmas and this was the only dress in my wardrobe left that fits me nowadays.

Originally I had a stunning green maxi dress planned, but on christmas morning I discovered the damage that Prednisolone (and now Humira) has done. My goodness have I put on so much weight! You don't realise how much weight medication makes you gain until you try on clothes that you haven't worn in a while (and see photos of yourself!).

Okay, so I'm still slim but the remaining oh so gorgeous dresses I have in my wardrobe no longer fit me, which is a shame and it makes me a little sad. I can't even get them over my shoulders or thighs {gasp}. The joy of weight gain as a side effect. Oh well, I guess it's time to buy some new dresses!

Unfortunately, I don't know where I got those shoes. They've been in my wardrobe for years. I got brave the other day and chucked them out as they were just too darn uncomfortable. I used to wear them to work all the time, during the good ole pre-arthritis days.

Dress: Dotti
Earrings: Diva
