. I've never worn it. Help me decide what to do with it!
When I bought the jacket I didn't know that I was newly pregnant. I almost immediately gained ten pounds, and since I could no longer zip it up, the jacket went into the closet, unworn, and has lived there ever since. Now, since I didn't pay +/- 120€ to make the inside of my closet look badass, I want to do something with it. Here are the three options I think I have:
1) Sell the jacket in order to recoup at least some of my lost funds
2) Keep the jacket around for when I lose the rest of the baby weight (could be late this winter, could be next year)
3) Wear the jacket anyway, even though I can't zip it. Probably with a big scarf to keep my midsection warm.
I know that no. 2 may seem overly optimistic, but I have a good metabolism and have never had problems maintaining my weight, aside from the forty pounds
I gained while pregnant (4 months later I'm down to the last 8 pounds). I do know, though, that even if I get back to my normal weight, my hips and/or ribcage may never go back to their original size.
No. 1 is my least favorite option, because I am sure to lose money, and I don't want to put the time and effort into selling it (there is no Craigslist where I live). I am leaning towards no. 3 because I really do love the jacket, but after reading this thread
about cardigans I am afraid that wearing a jacket I cannot zip is a major fashion faux pas.
So, what should I do with this jacket? Feel free to suggest anything I haven't thought of.
