And I really, really liked them, so I feel kind of out of it...
That said, I will post the Polyvores, then the outfits on me, and list any pertinent info. I want to write more but I am kind of tapped out. (That said, I always end up writing more than I think I will...you know what's weird, I am a way bigger conversationalist in writing than I am in real life.)
So if you have specific questions, I promise, if you comment your question, I will write back with a response (either in this post or its comment section). As you all know, it may take me a few days, but I will. :)
Here is outfit #1's Polyvore:
Here it is on me. I feel very Trinny of the British version of What Not To Wear. She was ALWAYS running around wearing a long tunic or dress and jeans or trousers. I have actually never done this look, but I must say, it was fun. I wore the flip-flops as a nod to summer, even though the day I wore this outfit it was kind of cold outside (Friday, June 5, 2009).
My co-worker says I should wear it with no jeans the next time. He is a man, though, and maybe he doesn't get the whole "jeans with what really is basically a dress" look. Or he is really disgusted with me that I would be doing a style that was popular in 2003.
Oh, and if you want to buy this top...it is LARGE. I have on a UK size 10 regular, which equates to a 4 or 6 US size. And it looks a bit big on me. It isn't too big, but if I lose anymore weight it might be too big. So you very petite ladies out there may be out of luck. The smallest size they have is a UK size 8.
Here is Outfit #2's Polyvore:
I wore this on Saturday, June 6, 2009. I LOVE this outfit. A LOT. The top is a bit big (UK size 12--US size 8), but I bet a bit of time in Dina's dryer will help with that...
The shorts are from 2006 and I can WEAR THEM AGAIN! YAY! And they are kind of loose. :) SMILE! (I am only 8 pounds away from my goal weight...)
Here is a close-up of the print, oh, and my very pretty daughter, too.
Have a nice day...more to come tomorrow. (Including a review of the Double-Serge Cotton Pencil Skirt--in short--LOVE!)
