So in honor of the brand new plus size online retailer Eliza Parker, I am choosing items from their website for my Tuesday Temptations. There are lots of great pieces, but I managed to whittle my choices down to these few:
Today was my youngest nephew's third birthday party, so we went over to my sis-in-laws for a cookout and cake.
The birthday boy, Alex. He got so excited when he opened this toy!
Time for presents! (That's my almost five-year old nephew on the far left)
Jimmy acting silly with a creepy toy frog.
This was the gift Alex got from his parents. This thing is so cool. It has a real radio in it!
And now onto the outfit! It wasn't anything fancy.
I don't know why I look so stumpy in this picture. It might be because my husband is 6'1'' and I'm 5'4'', so the angle is a little skewed. Really this shirt isn't quite this long, and my legs aren't quite this short. : )
I don't know if you can tell (I couldn't seem to get any good pictures!), but my hair is auburn now with coppery highlights. I had JeriLe cut it straight across instead of in my typical angled bob as well. Not very dramatic, but a nice change.
I got into a conversation about hairstyles and color today, and now I'm curious; Do you tend to change your hair based on the seasons? I know a lot of women go shorter and lighter in the summer, but I've never really been one to do so.
I just wanted to let you all know that I appreciate you reading my blabbering! I am so grateful to have met so many great people, and to have made some wonderful friends. So to show my appreciation, I will be having a giveaway once I reach 50 followers! I'll be dropping hints about what I'm going to give away, so stay tuned!
I received my Fashion to Figure order the other day, and thought I should break out my new duds! I ordered the nautical bolero from last Tuesday's post, and a crochet back shrug. I wore the shrug today with my new black maxi dress from Fashion Bug. It was super comfy and cute (comfy being key as I had a 9am-4pm class today).
Jimmy thought it would be funny to get the dog in the background of my picture doing her "business". This is my "No, Honey!" pose.Outfit Details: Black Maxi Dress: Fashion Bug ( I think I got the last one or something. It was the last one in the store, and I don't even see it online.) Lace top camisole: Lane Bryant Cream crochet back shrug: Fashion to Figure Silver gladiators: Torrid Awesome dangly earrings: Forever 21
I hope everyone else had a great day! Are you rocking the maxi trend? Do you love it/hate it?
So I've decided to take the easy way out with my "Tuesday Temptations" post and use polyvore to make my posts. This way all the items I've used are viewable and clickable without me having to spend time copying and pasting links.
The gorgeous and wonderful Gabi over at Young, Fat, & Fabulous made a very exciting announcement via her blog today. She is one of 20 finalists in the running to become the very first ever MTV Twitter Jockey! She needs lots of support and Twitter followers people (username @gabifresh). Wouldn't it be awesome to have one of our own curvy fashionistas on MTV?!
Today Jimmy and I went out to lunch with my sis-in-law, bro-in-law, and nephews, at one of my favorite restaurants. This place has the best fish and chips! I forgot to take my camera with us to lunch (boo), but I did get Jimmy to take a picture of my outfit when we got back home.
Outfit Details: Tank: Torrid (purchased during one of their awesome clearance sales) Coral Cardi: Old Navy Jeans: Avenue Sandals: TorridSuper Sparkly Necklace: Forever 21 Knotted Earrings: Forever 21
We were driving home from lunch today and my husband said "Your necklace is like a disco ball!" and pointed at the ceiling in the car. Of course, I had to take a picture.
When we got home we turned on the sprinkler, and the dog kept trying to drink from it. I found it hilarious. And here's my new nailpolish (and sausage fingers). It's called "For Audrey" by China Glaze. It's a Tiffany blue color. Loving it!
I am a twenty-something registered nurse. I've been married since June of 2008 to my wonderful husband, with whom I live in an Ohio suburb in our own little house with our two kitties and our puppy. I am a shopaholic and I love to "window shop" online. I get a kick out of trying to recreate outfits I see on "straight sized" women and "plus sized" women alike using items from my own closet.
My hope is that this blog will be an outlet for me to share my experiences of being plus sized woman, and a shopping addict!
