Fat and bloated; but with great jewelry
We all have those days (PERIOD DAYS) when we're bloated, ladies. Handy hint: wearing jeggings MAKES YOU FEEL VERY VERY FAT on one of those days. Like everyone but me hadn't figured this out! Luckily, my outfit concealed my bloated tummy, but I still felt all icky. Luckily my chest looked great!! And so did this necklace, another find at the flea market ($3!!!), on a costume jewelry table.
All the fashion mags keep talking about (that I want to wear) are tunics. "They're so flattering, so versatile..." So freaking UNAVAILABLE at any shop I go to! All I want is a tunic that comes down past my butt and DOESN'T have an elastic band around the bottom. Is that so hard? If I did have such a tunic I could wear it with leggings or my jeggings. The few "tunics" I can find (and I'm using the term loosely) have the dreaded elastic around the bottom. Because all plus-size girls like to draw attention to the wideness of their hips! So, I've just been buying mini-dresses. Or in this case, using a super-soft nightgown! With the cardigan on, it's not readily apparent that it's a nightie. The jersey fabric helps disguise it, too. In case you haven't noticed, Gilligan and O'Malley has become one of my favorite new brands. I would gladly be a shill for them....(crickets chirping in the dead silence). Oh, well. I'll just keep wearing their sleepwear out in public.
