Curvy Style Friday
You know, before I started this series, I was still pretty much stuck in a post-having-babies cycle of rotating the same four dresses over and over, with jandals in summer and tights in winter. It was a conscious decision to start giving more thought to my wardrobe, and to give myself a clothing allowance. It's a really hard thing to do, when you have little kiddos and a single income, but I'm so glad to have done so. And I'm grateful that I have an understanding partner, who mostly gets how important it is for me. Ug, so conscious of how first world I'm sounding right now. Moooooving on.
Alan Gale (I gave it to Zan for one of our anniversaries), Top - Neiel Vintage on Etsy, Singlet - Glassons, Tights - Blackbird Tees, Jandals - Havaianas. I also got these new glasses from Zenni Optical - recommended by Angela of Striking Keys. I don't love these frames as much as my old pair, but really they're pretty much the same.
So I figured that if I'm going to wear tights again this winter, I might as well love them. These were a splurge, but worth it I think. I don't often buy clothing of Etsy. Actually, this is the first time. But I was really pleased with both items - new favourites. I have found some great clothing stores on Etsy, so these won't be my last purchases. I will also be back to Blackbird Tees, I reeeeeally love their designs.
And feel free to laugh at my silly posing. I usually ham it up, what with my photographer mocking me the entire time anyway... ;-)
On a separate note, a couple of people have asked if I would be interested in adding a linky to these posts. I'm not that tech-savvy, but I could try and remember how to set one up, if there's any more interest. I've been joining in each week (belatedly) with Wardrobe Wednesday, but I could definitely be convinced to host a linky here as well. The only thing better than embracing and loving your curves, is convincing your friends to do the same. And meantime, if you do a Curvy Style post, please leave a comment so I can come and visit! x
