Life's a bitch!!!

So this blogging thing isn't as easy as I thought and takes  up too much time.  My writing skills have not improved as I hoped it would. Plus, my fashion ideas have ran out.  I guess it has to do with that time of year when the weather is changing and confusion begins as to what time of clothing to wear.

I got a chance to return a dress I hat gotten from Anthropologie which was one size too big, but luckily I had found a size smaller on Ebay.  This is the lucky dress (Polynesian Maeve dress):

Some other items that I tried on didn't look as good as I thought it would. For example, the Candied Dot blouse was a colorful dress, but seemed to want to pucker on my waste.  Maybe it was because it was too big or NOT petite.  I wanted to like it but it didn't work for me.

Another item that I really wanted to like was the Twinkle, Twinkle Dress.

I liked the color and the concept of the stars, but the neckline didn't do it for me.  It just cut my neck off and for someone short like me, I want to elongate everything, including my neck. :)

The 3d outfit (Manor Gates dress):

This dress is so beautiful in person that my IPhone did not do it justice.  Unfortunately, I did not do it justice either because I felt like the waist was much lower then it should be, maybe more of an empire.  I'l have to think about this one for a while and see if I can lose a bit more before my soon to be sister-in-laws wedding in January in Jamaica.

4th outfit - I call it the clock skirt (forgot the name as it is no longer online).  Why didn't I buy this when I had the chance?  The waist was a little tight for a size 6 and usually I'm between a size 4 or 6.  Oh well, I'll wait for ebay.

5th outfit - Pilcroe Slouchy Roll Straight Leg pants. These pants were one size too small. Too bad because I've been waiting all summer to get these and now summer is over and they don't have my size anymore.  Ebay?  Anyone?

6th outfit -  scattered clouds t-shirt. The color was nice, but again, what's up with high neck line?

7th outfit - IKat top.  I don't think this is the same IKat top that I wanted online. it's cute though!!

  1. I really like the dress in the third picture. Such a gorgeous silhouette! There are so many times where I want to like something, but it just doesn't meet expectations. Like the shirt in the first picture. I love that style and they always look so pretty on the hanger, and then I put it on and it adds so much width to my frame! I think they work best on women with real long, straight torsos, since they accentuate, and add on, curves.

    I need to start brainstorming ideas for my blog. Most of my posts are just me rambling, lol.
