New Year's Eve Day


    I had to run some errands earlier today and of course I wanted to wear some of the things I bought yesterday.  Oh yea, forgot to tell you all, I went shopping yesterday.  I bought 5 dresses and 2 cardigans for about $100.  Yes, 7 lovely items for about $100 when at full price everything would have been about $375.  I kid you not.  I got very lucky in that I was able to find very cute stuff on super duper final sale.  I'll make sure to show you what I got soon, but I may not be wearing any of it for a while since next week I plan on staying in my pjs and not leaving my house.  I LOVE vacation!
    So this dress I got at a Hanes outlet.  There happens to be a Hanes outlet across the street from where I work.  Unfortunately they don't carry my bra size, but they do carry the "Just My Size" brand.  This is meant for plus size women.  For the most part, the clothes doesn't work for me because designers tend to believe that women with big boobs also are also large everywhere else.  As a result plus size clothing is built like tents that fit at the boobs and then go out from there.  That does not work for me.  I have a waist and plan on showing it.  Surprisingly, I was able to find this dress that fit me and showed that I have a waist.  I liked it so much that I got it in heather red and black.  My favorite part is that its not plain, but has a flower garden at the bottom of the skirt.  SO cute.  The astonishing part is the price.  It was $5.  Not a typo, yes FIVE DOLLARS.  It was on sale for $9.99 and they were running a special so that everything was an additional 50% off making it $5.  See what I mean about being lucky?  How have you done with post-Christmas/year-end sales?

Red Dress: Hanes

I do! and it is! :) (although The Fiance told me I look a bit pregnant in it :/ )

That's just the empire waist effect. You definitely don't look pregnant in the pictures.

That's good to know. I have a slight phobia of empire waists as both my parents and my younger sister have ganged up on me in the past laughing at my supposed baby-bump when wearing an empire waist shirt or dress.

But thanks for letting me know I don't actually look preggers. :)
