Stats: 5'7" 55-50-64I wore this ensemble on 3 different days...for Super Boo's birthday, to work & errand, & to vote. This vibrant blue frock from Kiyonna was a delight to wear. It has a subtle textured print & I am growing to love this trend...I like the feel of it. Also, I was smitten with the peek-a-boo lace inset...that & the revealing neckline turn this otherwise conservative dress into elegant event wear...add a camisole & button up the sweater & it's perfect for work. My only issue with this dress was that I *had* to pin it...it wanted me to have 5x the boobs, so without a pin...it sloppily gaped. This is an outfit that would have NEVER happened pre-GB. I hated pink & blue...now look at me.
This would have been the perfect dress to try out some shapewear with for before & after photos as it is clinging to my rolls. I bought some high-waisted Spanx-like panties back in December, but the tags are still on them. Someday. Maybe. I like comfort.
L is for Love.
For David's birthday...we ate out...a lot. In the morning we went to SWAP (where UW gets rid of things & we got multiple book ends, paper sorters, & the BEST find...a big metal divided shelving thing that I'm going to use for organizing crafty supplies) & then had lunch at Jordandal Cookhouse (we buy most of our meat from them at farmers' market)...we shared sweet potato salad, red potato salad, & corn muffins...then pork tacos, a Cubano, & a Banh Mi. I also had a Wisco Pop ginger soda...it was all delicious!! Yum from Chocolatarian, & Sal's pizza for dinner. We tried a new to us pizza...C3PO...chicken, prosciutto, pesto, garlic, feta, mozzarella, red peppers, & caramelized onions. It is our new fav...so much tastiness.
A surprise came in the mail...David got me 2 pairs of the new teggings color, peacock! And a few others...just because. He's the sweetest.
My make-up with this outfit included...Kat von D eyeshadow in Synth, Dark Wave, & Echo...layered as eyeliner; Urban Decay eyeshadow in Junkshow, Provocateur, & Last Sin; a mixture of Bite Beauty's Quince & Aubergine on my lips; & OPI nail polish in You're A Pisa Work.
