I bought clothes today...

but didn't break SYC. I wear Target tank tops (thanks Janet for tipping me off on those) under my scrubs and under my sacroiliac belt, so the belt won't rub against raw skin. I used to have a two week supply when I was working 4-10's, now that I'm doing 5-8's I needed a couple more. I got hot pink and neon orange.
They did have a bunch Prabal Gurung stuff on clearance in my size, but I held fast. Also bought some self-tanner on sale so I don't scare the Austinites with my northwest winter white legs.

    Wow, Anna -- this is impressive. You definitely deserve to buy yourself a treat in Austin! 

    I know what you mean about winter white skin. 
  • Raisin replied 5 years ago
    Good job!  Hold fast!

    I am pasty white too!
  • Nicole D replied 5 years ago
    Utilitarian tanks do not count.  SYC still holds.  Which self tanner do you like? The only one that I found that doesn't streak is Clarins delicious self tanner (in the bronze jar).   I lasered my legs today - can never be too prepared to bare it all!

    Yeah Anna!  Good job!

    So, do you like those Target tanks?  I'm needing some layering tanks and was thinking about trying out Target's myself.

    Be strong! I think there is enough of us to start a fringe trend - winter white legs...
  • Robin M replied 5 years ago
    Good job staying strong.  Gear totally doesn't count in SYC.  
  • annagybe replied 5 years ago
    Marley I got these


    I sized up to large for length. The belt sits around my high hip so I need a long tank top. They've held up pretty well, I wash and dry them after every wear.

    I got the Jergens self tanner, had built in firming stuff. I am genetically blessed and don't have cellulite, so I really don't need the firming aspect. I've heard Jergens is good.

    Good job, Anna! I stocked up on tanks last summer, thanks to Target and Nordstrom's BP line.

    I use that same self tanner, and I really like it. The color is very gradual and subtle, and works well with my fair skin tone. 
  • Nicole D replied 5 years ago
    Jergens is good.  Layering is the key.  Actually, here is a link to my short-lived beauty blog about self tanning.  Enjoy.

    I used the Jergens a few times - just a moisturizer with self-tanner. Really thought it was a nice product. I only didn't keep using it because I'm lazy. :D

    Whoo hoo! Way to stay strong Anna. I'm so impressed :)

    Good job holding firm!  I also wear the Long n Lean tanks (sized up to medium also) and use the Jergen's lotion.  I'm not so blessed with dimple free cheeks, so the firming is a welcome ingredient ;)
  • CocoLion replied 5 years ago
    I am completely proud of you.  For not even being tempted by Prabal stuff on sale.  That one would have been so easy to justify.

    I'm very impressed:)

    Well done!

    Way to stay strong Anna!

    And glad to know I am not alone in the pale legs club  :)

    Technically I think tanks count as either undies or as gear, given how you use them.
