Back from the dead….again!


Yep, time to do this blog thing right, FINALLY. SO, let’s start off with something I have never felt totally comfortable with…an outfit post! Heck, everyone else does it, why not me? Open-mouthed smile


I found this fabulous 40s rayon sarong dress last year at a church sale for a ridiculously small amount of money. It is on the wee side, so I had intentions of selling it right away. And then I tried it on….I shouldn’t do that sometimes, because as you can see, it never left my closet! I wore it once to a party last year and I could BARELY squeeze into it, and then a good friend of mine wore it to a Tiki event and looked darling in it! Then I gained about 15 pounds after I turned 41 last October, and there was NO way I was going to get back into it.

About 2 months ago I got really fed up with this extra around my middle (did I mention I am also going through perimenopause? That is a whole ‘nother post there.) and decided to do something about it. I went on the South Beach diet and worked hard, and lost those pesky 15 pounds. I now eat SO better and feel LOTS better, too! Last night a friend of mine was having a birthday get together and I decided I was going to try to get back into it, and lo and behold…I DID and I managed to be very comfortable in it. I paired it up with orange 50s pumps and matching purse, and a pretty blue and green vintage rhinestone set that was a recent gift from a very dear friend. I felt pretty good, and my sweet fella thought I looked nice too.

I haven’t done many outfit posts on my blog, mostly because my 12 year old son is not a photographer and I just can’t get the hang of self-photography! Hopefully over the next few months that will change, as I do believe this redhead is going to be shackin’ up soon with a certain fella who’s been hangin’ around the last couple years. He is willing to indulge my silly female vanity by taking outfit shots for me!

So till next time, darlings…!
