Grown Woman in a Playsuit !!!

Oh Yes I Am ! I'm wearing a "playsuit", and I like it !!! During a weak moment while waiting for a new battery to be put in my car, the W place had these Miley / Max jumpers for 5 dollars! I know, I know, I have exploited my no-spending rule twice already ( July is a long way away!) , but I really wanted to see if a "saged" chick could pull it off. I will be wearing these things all summer, in leu of a swim top as they are so easy and comfy. Of course I had to buy more than one. And bonus, they have pockets! This one is the girliest, the others are tribal prints. The cotton is paper thin and they do show a lot of skin, but my neighbor's are used to seeing me tromping around in p.j. shorts and a tank. So really, I did it for them ;). I boho'd it up with a thrifted leather belt, hippy beaded earrings, and the traditional summer floppy hat (K-mart) and some thrifted huraches. The shoes are still a little stiff, but I will place giant sock balls in them to stretch them. Ta, Da ! I still feel all growed up. Darn!

The Deets:

My newest favorite accessory, the thrifted leather belt, One Dollar! Yipee!

 I also have a secret. I edit. I admit it. I have seriously bad vericosities in my legs and rather than showing a giant snake crawling up my leg, I get rid of them. When I sit, they retreat, but when I stand, they fill with blood and get really big and painful. Thus the sitting shots. I also could hide them (kinda) with tights, but as summer is here, and I don't want to sweat to death, I wear longer skirts or just edit them out. I am proud of how I am willing to try new, fun things, but at this point, It is becoming a medical issue. I see my doc. on Thursday and am finally willing to say goodbye to the snake legs. I am vain (vein?) as well, but my health comes first! Whew, what a load off !!! Many people edit, and for some reason, I feel it's not "honest". So here's the last and only time ( I hope), you will get the full monty:
Ouch! I can hardly look! Sad, really :) I guess we all have issues and that's O.K. !

Cheers to Summer, Minimal make-up and lots of Orange Pop !

I am looking forward to a sunny week! How bout you?
Do you ever edit ???

I love your playsuit, what a lovely print.
I think you have a pair of fabulous pins!
Hmm, editing...I do crop some of my pictures & I have been known to crop my face out of the pic if I'm gurning for instance but I don't airbrush myself, too time consuming me thinks!

The playsuit is perfect for you, I love how it looks!! I may have to stop by big W too to check 'em out!! And you poor thing, I'm sorry about the snake. I don't think there is anything wrong with a little edit here and there. We want to show our styles, who cares if we try to make the picture a little more aesthetically appealing. I wish you luck!

If you don't mind me saying- wow you have a rockin bod! You look great in the romper! I actually felt funny buying a romper too this season becasue I was like, what is a old broad like me doing wearing such a thing, but looking at photos of you has really inspired me! said...

Very cute and fun, I love your style.

Oh Reva, you have the most fabulous legs!
What's a little snake between friends?
I love that playsuit on you and how you've accessorised it, too.
Hope the doc sorts the vein out for you soon so's you can wear shorts without a second thought.
If it's any consolation I have a big hip replacement scar running up my left thigh, now that really makes me feel ancient!

I agree with Megan - the focus is supposed to be on the clothes so why not edit your photos if it makes you happier. I'm not good at editing photos so I don't try, aside from adjusting the colors for accuracy, but I crop my head out of my photos, and I also like to crop out my hands when I can because they're so ugly.

You look amazingly cute in this-- it's just adorable on you. I'll admit I envy your looonnnnng legs, didn't even notice the veins on the unedited pic, until you pointed it out^^ hope all goes well w/ the doctor~~


I too purchased a playsuit! I'm still trying to get the nerve to wear it. You look fabulous! Long and Lean. As far as editing, I edit for brightness and some cropping, not too big with other features.

You're so gorgeous! You have some fabulously long legs, lady! I'm sorry your legs are bothering you, but honestly I think you look lovely just the same. But good call on seeing a doctor! You shouldn't have to live with them being sore like that.
