So, what I will be doing here is making a daily commitment to post a photo (or two) a day – of my outfit and progress – as well as exercise habits/routines. Unlike Julie – who wears 100% vintage, everyday! (Im so jealous), I tend to wear vintage mixed in with my modern clothing. And sometimes, Im 100% modern too. Hell, this might even give me more willpower to dress up even more everyday! Im not sure I want to post my weight, because thats very personal to me – but I will for sure post my measurements.
Starting today – my measurements are:
Bust 46″ (wearing a 40DDD bra)
(Im sure Im ready to disclose my weight, its extremely private to me – but really – the weight is just a number, its the inches I care about most!)
Currently, I fit into a size 14 jeans/pants and 14 dress. I often have a hard time finding clothing that fits my body proportionally because of my ample bust. Can you believe that I was a 34B for the most part of my adult life?! I hope to be able to fit into this dress, Im in LOVE with it. But most of all, Im in love that its a good healthy size 10 – Betty, my oldest dress form, encompasses the shape I long to be. Shes curvy but healthy and if I may say so, quite sexy! I love Betty, she looks awesome in everything I put on her! – Here is a quick photo of Betty wearing the dress Im dying to get into.
So, today’s outfit is one of my favorites. The 60s dress I purchased from Bohemian Bisoux Vintage. I love Lauren and all of her pretty pieces. This one was a bit big for me when I purchased it (I knew it would be) but I had a seamstress friend alter it. Its still a little big, which is fine with me!
60s Dress – Bohemian Bisoux Vintage
60s Rhinestone Earrings – Gift from my Mother-in-Law
60s Black Pumps – Thrifted
(Sorry about the lackluster hair, its a really rainy humid day here in New Hampshire!)
Here’s a bonus shot of me, proud of the fact that I may be a larger size, but I still have skinny ankles! – Its the little things…. 😉 – Wish me luck!
