A Bit Of An Update

So I debated and debated and debated posting these pictures. I have been asked over and over to post action shots of my dresses. I was very hesitant to do so for a few reasons. Ok. One reason. I hate the way I look! I am a perfect size 6 from the waste up. And I am a perfect size 10 from the hips down! I HATE IT!!! I am so disproportionate I feel no matter what I wear I look like I have the largest hips and butt in the universe. Whether that is correct of not! Also, the fact that I am only 5'3 doesnt help me in any way shape or form. But I have been asked one too many times, so here are some photos from some of the past weeks events. 

This is outfit one. I don't know if you remember my boxing day post. The pepper spray I wont soon forget! But in it I posted a picture of the new ESPRIT dress I bought then. Here it is in action! The dress was 140 dollars retail. I got it for 59.99 and 50% off making it only 30.00! The blazer is Body By Victoria and I found it brand new at a Salvation Army for 3.30 and 60% off so it was 1.32! And the shoes are Sam Edelman snakeskin flats I got on clearance at Winners (TJ Maxx) for 17.00!!

And here is the manicure that started out MAC and got saved by Deborah Lippmann!

Here is the next outfit! This skirt was NOT a bargain. BUT....... I got it for a cousins wedding in 1998. I have worn it so many times the fact that it was many hundreds of dollars (500.00 I think) is almost negated by the fact that I have worn it so much and for so long! The jacket retailed for 150.00 and I got it on clearance for 19.00 at Winners (TJ Maxx). The shoes are bronze Nine West heels I got for 60% off of 2.20 at Goodwill so they were under a dollar.

And while the manicure did not show up at all, its a black crème with a Finger Paints flakie polish on top!

And the third outfit to show you today is the dress that I got from Value Village for 5.00 along with black heels that were $1.00 at a Goodwill sale where all clothing and shoes were a dollar!

Most of my jewellery was off in these pics as NONE of it was in any way a steal or a splurge!
