Tuesday's Threads

Hi ya'll! 

So I decided that I am going to try and start doing a few "fashion" posts a week. 

For these five reasons:
  1. To motivate myself to look decent at work every day.
  2. To force myself to come to terms with where I am with my weight - good or bad.
  3. To find "new" outfits in my existing closet.
  4. To show people that you can be fashionable with out giving up your right arm and leg.
  5. To hopefully inspire and give ideas to other working "curvy" girls.
Now, with all that said, let me make it clear, I do not consider myself a "fashionista".  If you would have told me that 10 years ago I would have laughed in your face.  But somewhere between skinny and fat I quit caring.  Granted, I don't walk around in an over sized tweety bird shirt and baggy sweats but I also have found myself in a "rut" of wearing the same 5 things to work every week because they're "easy."  But I refuse to do that any more!  I have discovered that when I dress nice my whole outlook on the day is better. I am a nicer person, I make nicer food choices and I might even re-apply my lipstick more than once! 

Even though I have been in a "rut" my shopping habits haven't slowed down...but they have changed.  They went from "oh, I need those Citizen jeans" and "my work pants must be from Express" to "Have ya'll ever tried Old Navy's skinny jeans?  Man, they are awesome!" or "Ya'll will never believe where I got these work pants, WAL-MART and you can wash and dry them at home!!!"  I'll say, if anything positive has come from me gaining weight it would be that I've learned how to care less about labels and more about saving.  I mean, really, people, who would I be kidding getting out of my Kia Sportage in Seven jeans and a Louis Vuitton purse?  NO. ONE.  It would only scream "bought it on credit!"  So I discovered my favorite store. ever- ROSS!  No, I'm not a "Maxinista", they're too pricey for my taste.  Ross is hands down the greatest store, ever!  I'm warning you now...there will more than likely be something from Ross in every one of my outfit posts.  I suggest you find a good Ross near you, because, ladies, if you haven't, you don't know what you're missing!  NOTE:  I said good Ross.  There are some questionable ones but you find a good one and you're set!

On to today's outfit!

Shirt & Cami: Small Boutique in Frisco - Under $15
 Pants: ROSS - $12
I love this necklace but it always wants to cup one boob. 
Anyone else have this issue?
 Necklace: Sam Moon - Less than $8
(I'll do a post on Sam Moon one day!)
 I'm in major need of a full length mirror! 
I'll be going to Wal-Mart for one tonight!
Shoes: Target - $15

 There's my outfit for today!  So, do ya'll think I should keep it up?  I do!  :)  Be on the lookout for a new "Rossome" look soon!  "ROSSOME=Ross + Awesome" BOOM!  You heard it here first, ladies! Actually, I totaly stole it but I'm going with it for now. 

Enjoy...The Curvy Life!
