wrap dresses and jeans
every fashion store in sydney has been bombarded with wrap dresses! At first I was excited by this - most are a decent length and a v-neck line looks great on me. I tried on my first wrap dress this weekend. note to all the 'fat bottom' girls out there - do not do it! major pear alert. my husband, who was dutifully hanging out near the change rooms saw me in the wrap dress and out came 'baby... can I be really honest with you? from your waist up, its great but.... hmm..' The said dress was returned to the rack! I went to another store and tried on a slightly different style, just to be sure, but nope. There will be no wrap dresses for me this year : )
I think I've mentioned it here before - I dont wear pants. With my 5'3" pear shape, a pair of pants makes my ass look like a ball on a stick, or a dumpy clown. So I'm more fond of a skimming a-line skirt. Even in the middle of winter. I just add some tights, a big scarf, coat and I'm fine. This is Sydney after all. But sometimes a girl just wants to wear some jeans! Being a bit of a mental case, occasionally I walk into a shop, grab a random pair of pants and try them on. I did this again on the weekend.. I got The Boy to do the random picking for me (he must think I'm a total nutter sometimes.. but he keeps indulging my whims) He picked out a very nice pair of jeans and I'm pleased to report they were 53% wearable. Front was fantastic! thighs, smooth. belly, flat. Then we spin around to the side. Bum profile, perky, not too bulbous. But the wide load back shot - not too good.
The Boy. once again: 'baby... can I be really honest with you...?'
Chubba: 'oh shut up!'
We then went home and had fabulous sex. Sometimes I really love that man : )
(by the way - my shopping expedition wasnt so bad, I did manage to find two skirts I love - one reduced from $100 to $20. love it! a few beads, a purse and a pair of shoes.. pretty good day I say)
