Usually I wear quite casual to work, jeans most of the time. Since I'm work in IT company, and I don't have to go out to meet client, so our dress code is smart casual. But this year, the HR & Admin lady encourages us to wear more formal to work. So for a change, I started to dig back those pants and shirts, that I used to wear more than 10 years ago in my previous jobs. Surprisingly I still can fit in most of them! Hahaha! I am so happy. Most are long sleeves shirt and black pant, which will never outdated as office wear. Even though they are getting a bit tighter to wear now, but I'm happy able to fit in those clothes and wear them to work. Many thanks to breastfeeding. :)
Early of the week, my mom gave me some of the clothes that she cannot fit into them now despite she just bought them last year. So they are still pretty new as she hardly wear them. Few are even still the new one! (She just found out that she cannot fit into them when she wants to wear them.) My mom is still working. And she works inside a shopping center. So you can imagine that she get lots of chance to shop and buy clothes. And she got pretty good taste too. These clothes are not the aunty look type! (Else I won't take them. Hahaha!) I got 5 pair of jeans, 2 halter tops, 3 one piece dress and 1 very good quality cheong sum that she bought from her China trip. There were few others that are not so suitable to me so I did not take. The timing is just good. As I was thinking of getting some new jeans as those that I am wearing now are getting very old. :)
Yeah, I and my mom are about same size. She probably just 1-2 sizes bigger than me. And we are about same height. So it is very easy for us to share the clothes. Whatever she cannot fit, most of the time I can just fit to them nicely. :) I still can remember in the past, whenever I need to go for any dinner or function, since I don't have lots of nice dresses, I will borrow them from my mom. So the same group of people will not see me always wearing that same dress. We can even share the shoes! Yes, we have same shoe size. Very good for me, isn't it? Hahaha! You see, I got a mom who likes to shop, and she got a daughter (me) who seldom shops! We are just complementing each other. LOL! Since after giving birth to kids, whenever we go out do shopping, most of the time we shop for the kids. It has been very long time ago since me and hubby shop for ourselves. And if I go shop alone, most of the time I will come home with empty hand. But if I go shopping with my mom, I will come home with lots of bags! Hehehe! Luckily this happens only once in a while. Seldom get a chance to shop with mom anymore since we both have different timing now. And also I still have lots of clothes inside my wardrobe as I did not change much after giving birth. :)
It's fun to be able to share so much with my own mom. Also because she keeps herself up-to-date. Or even better than me since I don't really go shopping that much. Hehehe! I hope, next time when Lynn grows up, I will be able to do the same with her. It will bring us closer, more like friend or sister rather than mom and daughter. :)
