I found this “cute to me” dress at the thrift store a few weeks ago. At first I wasn’t going to buy it because I have another dress that’s similar but with longer sleeves and not that much different color wise + it’s a large and I’m still getting used to that since being on this weight loss/management journey. The cost for the dress was around $6.00 give or take + tax.
I’ve had the high heels (bought from Shoe Dazzle; Robyn Crochet Shootie Stiletto) for years but I think I’ve yet to wear them out because (1), the heel is high as hell and (2), whew lawd the pain I feel in my ankles. I’m more of a tennis shoes, barefoot, flip flops kinda gal but do love wearing high heels. I think if I wore them more often, my fear (busting my ass aka falling) of wear heels like the ones in the picture wouldn’t be that big of an issue. I don’t have a problem wearing high heels that have a chunkier heel.
And since I can be extra asf (as fxck) sometimes, naturally I turned it into a photo shoot. LOL! I need to either buy a new tripod or figure out where the attachment is that holds my phone.
Remember that book we all read, back in the day, when we were expecting our first babies? Well here’s my blog version of that helpful little book, but it’s about the other fun thing that happens to us women. Hello. My name is Andy, and I survived menopause. And so did my husband. I remember when […]
Within the last 3 months or so, I’ve gained at least 20 lbs. It could be a combination of my medical issues – Hypothyroidism. My Hysterectomy – Note to self: Make appointment to have levels checked since I’m on hormonal medication. My not eating healthy which includes my addiction to soda at times. Not exercising…
Previously to my taking note of my weight gain, I was already feeling down in the dumps as I have never been this overweight before. However, I’ve never been one to shy away from taking pictures and posting them (online), regardless as to what I’m wearing. When it comes to wearing certain clothing in public – now. Not happening! No sir reeeee!!!
I’d bought a pretty swimsuit at Wal-Mart awhile back. I wore it to take a picture in and then only wore the top out. I have NEVER worn a bikini (the bottom) before (let alone in public) but I bought this particular swimsuit that has it. I kept telling myself that I was going to step out of my comfort zone (eventually) and wear it in public. That time came over the weekend when the hubster and I went down to the pool to swim.
I recently did a semi-chop to my hair, so excuse the wild hair look *smiling*. Hoping I can stay on this natural hair journey because relaxers seem to be killing my hair.
I’m the 1st to admit that I have no sense of style. I wear what’s comfortable, even if what I’m wearing doesn’t match or make much sense. I absolutely wish I could live in flip flops, shorts, t-shirts, skirts and dresses.
I’m not much into wearing jeans or heels. With heels, I’m scared that I’m going to fall and bust my ass. However, shoes that have a chunkier heel, I’m o.k. with wearing. Or, I’m o.k. with high heels if I know I wont be doing too much walking. With jeans – I’m on the short side, so finding jeans that fit without the need for altering, well – the struggle can be real. But I think I’ve found a store (Ashley Stewart) to solve my dilemma.
Considering I now have an office, I need to start dressing as though I’m going into the office. I came across a page on Facebook (Stylish Eve) a while back and glad that I did because it has made it much easier putting pieces together. I like seeing that jeans can be dressed down or up too, so I will be looking into buying a few pairs and in different colors.
I’m really looking forward to the many changes to come in my “fashion”journey. So far, this is what I’ve come up with…
I was determined to do a 5k and finally completed one. I’ll be doing my 2nd one in Feb/2016. I had a lot of fun and having the proceeds go to a local charity made it that more awesome’r. It may have taken me a hot minute hour to do but I finished….Woohoo!!
I wasn’t too sure about wearing a tutu but did so anyway. Glad I did because I wasn’t the only one who wore one!
