Magenta Joseph A. sweater purchased from Foley's....$45.

Magenta and Black Embroidered Notations skirt purchased from Foley's...$59.

Gianni Bini flats from Dillard's...$89 (but got them on sale for $12)

Wearing an outfit long since forgotten, shoved away in a drawer because you gained many, many, many, pound and everytime you wore the outfit the seams resembled that of David Banner transforming into the Incredible Hulk...PRICELESS!

I purchased this skirt and shirt about four years ago during one of my many WW stints. I think I wore this outfit a couple of time before it started bursting at the seams. Not wanting to part with this jazzy ensemble, I packed the skirt away in the back of a drawer to be worn after I lost weight. WELL... today people, that day finally ARRIVED!

As usual, I woke up this morning disoriented and wondered what to wear. I opened my armoire and the color of the shirt caught me eye. I thought to myself....Self, I wonder if THAT skirt fits. I flew off the bed, rifled through the drawer, and tried on the skirt. BAM...IT FIT!!! With a little help from my slimming garment, I rocked this bad boy at work today and received a couple of comments.
O...FYI...the jewelry you see...made by yours truly.

Many moons ago I decided to start making my own jewelry, and like every other hobby I started, I quit. I recently diagnosed my self with H.A.D.D., Hobby Attention Deficit Disorder. Case in point, my scrapbook blog...yeah only 2 or three entries.


  1. Since I'm new to the whole fitness blogging thing, I'm just learning the lingo, but I think fitting into that outfit is considered a NSV. Am I right?

  2. WHOO HOO! You look so good in that outfit!!! :) Love the jewelry too! From one crafter to another-you got talent! :)

  3. By the way, You can totally rock this skirt with your Button down collared shirts, that pink Snake Skin Belt and these pink flats or throw on your black boots....Pop the collar, then bam! New outfit!

    Excuse me fellow bloggers...I'm her personal stylist...LOL

  4. And I thought I was the only one with HADD! Whew, I feel better now!
