Dress - thrifted
Yes, I'm wearing under-armor fit for a fat girl under this dress. Not just to hold in my lumps, although that is a good reason. Those undies that "go all the way up" also act as an unseen back brace. It kept my back from spasming all through church, and I was able to stand and sit without lurching or gasping. That would have been inappropriate, even for a frump.
Bracelet - thrifted
This bracelet was missing a ring for the clasp to grasp, so I added one this morning. Made it much easier to put the bracelet on with one hand!
Born BOC sandals - Vanderbuilt's
Born makes the very best footwear for people with plantar fasciitis, I'm telling you! These cute little strappy sandals are so very comfortable, I could wear them all day long and be nearly pain-free. Whenever Vanderbuilt's has a half-off sale, my shoe collection grows by at least one pair! (Oh, my, there was the MOST ADORABLE pair of cowgirl boots marked down to $49. Sadly, the heel was too high and made my stupid feet feel like they were embedded with glass, so I had to leave them at the store. I would LOVE to have purchased those beauties, though! And they had a wonderful pair of cognac colored Born riding boots for $49, too, that were nice and flat heeled....but too tall and narrow for my short and chubby self. Such great bargains on boots - but none to go home with me! Sad, sad, truly sad...)
Handmade Dachshund purse - eBay
Last Sunday, I wore my Dachshund earrings in memory of my Little Old Lady Dog, Abby; this week, I carried my Dachshund purse. I told Some Postman that if it had been possible, I'd have had Abby stuffed and mounted so I could carry her taxidermied puppy body with me everywhere. Yeah, that would throw me completely into the creepy lady section of the bargain bin! I do miss my long little doggie, but she is with me in spirit. And Etta Pooka stays nearby all the time, which is a great comfort. Stay tuned to see what Dachshund-themed clothing item I purchased via Amazon will be featured in next Sunday's outfit, assuming it arrives in time.
