INDOORS AND LAYERS

WELL, INDOORS IT IS :)
I AM ON THE HUNT FOR THE BEST SPOT SO BEAR WITH ME . THIS OUTFIT KEPT ME SO WARM, I ACTUALLY WORKED UP A SWEAT. I HAVE ON : TIGHTS, OVER-THE-KNEE SOCKS, A THERMAL TOP, A SWEATER, WOOL JACKET, 2 SKIRTS, AND A SCARF. WHEW !
THEN, AS I HAD MY BI-YEARLY CHECK-UP AND A FLU SHOT, I HAD TO UNDRESS AND RE-DRESS MYSELF WITHOUT A MIRROR. ANYTHING FOR FASHION ;)


NOW, ON  A WEIRD  NOTE, I GAINED 15 LBS.......
I WAS SHOCKED, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, ALL MY PANTS WERE GETTING TOO TIGHT. DARNED BAKED BEANS AND CHIPS. WHICH BRINGS ME TO MY BELOVED LEATHER PANTS.
I HEMMED THEM, CALLED A SEAMSTRESS TO REPAIR A MISSING SNAP ( Previous owner must had had similar issues...) I WORE THEM AROUND THE HOUSE FOR 4 DAYS ( on and off ) TO TRY AND MAKE THEM STRETCH, WITH NO LUCK IN THE WAIST AREA. 
MY MUFFIN-TOP IS HIGHER THAN MOST. MY SHAPE IS NO LONGER AND "H", BUT AN "O".
FINALLY, AFTER A STARE-A-THON, AND MUCH SIGHING, I'VE DECIDED TO RETURN THEM. 
LUCKILY OUR GOODWILL TAKES RETURNS UP TO 10 DAYS.  ~  IF ONLY .......

I went to the dr today too and have gained 13 lbs! I about died. I will be doing something about it after Christmas!

You look so pretty in this blue! And the white curtains make it very dramatic. I like it!

Hey, you look great. This outfit is awesome! I didn't know you could make returns to Goodwill -- that's pretty cool.

Amanda said...

I am loving this whole outfit! so cute!

Love all the blues, hey if you love the leather pants and they weren't too pricey, can't you just keep them to look at? That is what I do with most of my vintage stuff and I feel I am too vintage to wear vintage, but it is so very pretty...

I have to go on some kind of a planned diet after Christmas...we can all suffer through together! This is actually one of my favorite outfits that I have seen you put together! I really like so much about it particularly the skirt and the jacket. It has such a chic, cool aesthetic about it! Great job!

Reva--these indoor photos turned out great. The various textures and layers are just beautiful!

Couldn't the 15 pounds be good news?

Love your outfit and your sense of humor. If you can't laugh at yourself, then you may as well just throw in the towel. YOU LOOK WONDERFUL! This blue is perfect for you!

I really like your pictures in front of the window! I struggle with taking pictures indoors in the winter. Finding the right spot is so difficult.

And still you look svelte! SELL your leather pants online!

YOU look so fantastic. Bright not gloomy and so toasty for winter. GREAT ENSEMBLE. Rosebud approved! I thought red was your color until I today. BLUE, that sweet summersky blue looks AMAZING on you!

I truly love this look.
So tell me where one skirt ends and one skirt begins?
Love the blue color on you!

knitwit said...

You look so light and bright. I love it!
How devastating to find such a great deal and then not be able to make it work! I'm crossing my fingers that when you make the return, there'll be something equally fabulous there waiting for you!
