Don't run screaming out of the fitting room!

After trying to talk myself out of shopping a million times in the last 2 weeks, I gave in. There was a good side and a bad side. The good side is that there are a lot of great sales right now. (Tip of the week: sign up for the email list of your favorite stores. You will get coupons and notices with every sale!)

I had major success at DOTS--- I LOVE DOTS! If you have a DOTS near you, YOU MUST check it out! They have all sizes and they are so inexpensive! I bought a black suit for $38 and this adorable dress (that I can wear with the suit jacket) for $18. They have crazy clearance all the time and casual clothes too.

I just need to vent about a few things. First, THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH HAVING CURVES. I am trying to eat healthy and monitor the number of calories that I am eating on a daily basis but I am starting to drive myself crazy because according to the BMI index, I am overweight. I am a size 12. I love my curves! In the spirit of the sexy ladies of the 50's like Marilyn Monroe-- rock those curves! Whether you are a size 1 or a size 21 you are beautiful! Everyone can make their size and look work. You just need to find what works for you.

My best friend and I have been complaining for years that women do not wear clothes that are flattering! Either they are wearing clothes that are not meant for their size or they hide their curves with "tent-like" shirts and pants. What is up with that? Use models like Emme to get inspiration. Stores like DOTS and Avenue are great stores to get your outfits because not only do they have everything from shoes, hose, outfits, they have a well-dressed staff to walk you through it! Say it with me "No more Winnie the Pooh sweats!"

My last vent of the night is again, the "tight are not pants" rule! My friend Cara and I were out shopping and saw a poor girl wearing tights as pants. These were not the tights that could easily be mistaken for leggings. They had a seam, you could see the poor girl's behind! And to make matters worse, they had lace trim throughout. Why did her friend let her leave the house like that? This is my challenge to you: if you know someone who is wearing tights as pants, lets have a nationwide intervention!!!!

That is it for now! Thanks for tuning in. Feel free to comment on anything you want me to talk about next time!

  1. I agree about Dots, I hadn't been there in a million years, but it's changed and it is a fun affordable way to fill the need for shopping!
