Have you ever sold something on Ebay or given something away to Goodwill and then found a picture and asked yourself WTH why did I give this away? I an the opposite of a hoarder, I go through these crazy cleaning streaks and sell or throw everything away. I just let this cute little cardi go, and now I'm asking WHY???
They are selling cute, cool dresses at target for $19.99 The only problem is that after a wash they a little above my knee and I'm 5'2"
This is n't the most flattering pic of the faux wrap, but they are nice because they are high enough that you don't have worry about flashing someone
The whitest woman in South Florida and I even have a pool
Red flower from Etsy (don't you hate them now that you can't pounce anymore?) I barely buy anything there because of that Pounce let me have my spur of the momet midnight purchases
As I said in my last post I have gained even more weight. I have no one to blame but myself. But then when O go out I have such low self esteem. I really want to at least thin my arms down (is this easy) because all of the dressed I bought so far are sleeveless. It is ungodly hot in Ft. Lauderdale in June. So far I have bought 5 dresses, however I did take 3 back, so I haven't gone completely mad. Now am going to narrow it down between the last two and not look at anything else until June.
Today I went to get my twins prom dresses altered, so I got dressed! I thought this would be a nice mother daughter bonding experience. Ummmm....not so much. It got so bad I made my husband come and pick them.
1. We bought the dresses last prom season to insure that no one else would have the same dress. Well my daughter Anna's dress was front and center as you walk into David's Bridal. 2. Both daughters dresses were cloned and hanging in the alterations department. 3. My daughter Anna has this gorgeous, smoky gray dress with a few silver bugle beads on the bodice. She has a temper tantrum in the store when 4 of us told her that her bright silver Tom's shoes would look hideous with the dress. And beside that, if they had to alter the bottom of her dress, the alterations would cost $30 less then the whole dress itself.($120 for alterations!) She didn't think that was unreasonable. (At this point I called my husband) 4. Then off to the shoe store, already a source o f contention because of the Tom's The big girls eventually found shoes. I saw a really cute pair of flat gladiator sandals that I wanted, they had the exact same pair for my little one. I said "wouldn't t be so cool to have shoes just like Mom?" she said "No" and walked away. That was my cue to head to Barnes and Noble and leave my husband to fix the damages. I've been crying over graduation every day anyway. Yesterday it seemed as though they plotted to make me feel as terrible as possible, while spending all of my money. Props to my daughter Katie who wast the peacemaker, joined me at Barnes and Noble and made dinner when we got home. What does this have to do with what I'm wearing? Nothing except for the fact that this is what I had on for this perfect day.
I feel like I have been on a see-saw and I recently took this blog down as I felt I had nothing more to offer. Also, I was (and still am) feeling very sorry for myself as I have gained weight, my twins, who i consider my best friends are graduating in June and going off to college, and my Agorophobia has hit me like a ton of bricks. Because of these issues I felt I had nothing to bring to the table, then I started missing you guys, the friends I can have without leaving the house. So please join me again.
Ok, so i bought 3 things from Eshakti, had to return 2 because of size/style. Told them I wanted to exchange, not money back, very vague, not sure if they understood ( irealiz I was speaking to someone in India) Has anyone else done this? How did they handle the transaction? did they refund your bank account or give you store credit?
Have any of you shopped this site? I just purchased the dress I think I want to wear to my daughters' graduation in June (i know it is early, but they are going to be so expensive with all of their prom and grad things around that time. I love the neckline of this dress, and of course I am going to lose 50 pounds and tone up my arms by then--ha!
What do you think about the dress and the company?
I'll admit it, I am an Etsy-holic. I buy A LOT of things on this site. They have recently done away with their POUNCE function, which allowed you to see what others bought and other things that seller had to offer. It was fun to POUNCE and get ideas for gifts for me (lol) and others. Did you POUNCE? Do you miss it?
I am the mother of 3 girls who are the lights of my life, my twins are in 12th grade and my little one is 8 yrs old. All of them are adopted. We took the trip of a lifetime to pick up little Jia-Li in China. I have been married to my husband for the past 17 years. I am a disabled teacher, so I wear a lot of jeans. I love to read and curl up with my chihuahuas.I have been taking medicine that has made me gain a lot of weight
and that has made me very worried about the way I look. I have a deep and abiding belief in our Lord.
