I don't know how many of you out there are on Pinterest I know for sure that Drazil and Sheniqua is not (click on her name for a very funny blog post). One of the things I find myself 'pinning' a lot are clothes. I've never considered myself a fashionista. I've stayed a bit away from that as a silent and silly rebellion against my mother -- background here, on my wedding day she told me how happy she was. I replied with, "yes, Jason is such a wonderful man" and she said - and.I.kid.you.not - "no, it's because you're wearing make up". How can you NOT want to rebel? I don't wear make up, as a matter of fact we go out so rarely that when I do need to wear some I have to buy all new stuff.
But being on Pinterest and pinning some really cute outfits has made me realize that I do care a bit. It's hard being the weight I am now for a various amount of reasons. one is no cute clothes. If you can find cute clothes they really don't look right, because frankly, my body doesn't look right. And what is it with designers thinking that if you are overweight your arms must have also gotten much longer. I'm not a freakin' orangutan -- just fat. So normally I buy t-shirts, long sleeve shirts and a lot of kakis. But when I lose this weight....I think I might have some fun.....
Here's a smattering of what I've been pinning lately (well in the fashion department at least). I'm kind of excited about the whole clothes thing.
Everyone needs a little black dress.
Love the comfy looking jeans, the loose peasant blouse. As a matter of fact, my closet will be full of artsy peasant blouses. Jeans...can't wait, the last time I wore jeans the waist was above the naval.
My wardrobe, like my house, will be super eclectic. How fun would it be to go to a business party in something like this?
Toile bathing suit...need I say more?
As a child of the 80's (when the Preppy Handbook first came out) it would be de rigueur to have this outfit.
