We know you’re out of school, but we have a fun assignment for you. Using the examples from Geri, Melissa, La Toya and Annette–send us side-by-side photos of you, from “then” and “now.”
Tell us what’s changed and what hasn’t. Or just send photos and captions. Whatever suits your FOFancy!
We want to know about YOU.
We’ll post Then & Nows on our site! Stop reading and get to work! Completed assignments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Then @ 41
“I had recently lost 50 pounds—went from 177 to 127—and just loved my svelte new body. So everything I bought was form fitting. Notice the slim skirt and spandex like top. I also wore heels, even though my feet were killing me. Needed to show off those legs. The wide belt was a Donna Karan from Barney’s (before it moved uptown and became ridiculously pretentious.) I still have the belt, in red, too. It now fits around half my waist. I remember everything about the belts because I bought them when my father was dying.”
Now @ 66
“I won’t tell you what I weigh, but suffice it to say, it’s more than 127. So I now cover my bigger tummy and thighs with ample tops. I love leggings because they’re slimming and cover the cellulite, too. I never wear heels. I think flats are sexy, and I don’t risk toppling over and killing myself, which is something to consider at FOF. My curls are gone and so is my thick hair, which I now cover with a marvelous piece from LeMetric, which is owned by my dear friend, Elline. I’m forever trying to lose 20 pounds but I refuse to stop eating certain foods I enjoy. Nevertheless, I like my style—and myself—more than I ever have.”
