Now Trending in Francieland

Have to dress up for a wedding.  It was maddening.  I hope it's maddeningly funny:

And while I'm naming names, I want to say I adore the clothes  Mod Cloth.  Everything Joe Browns and AX Paris on Simply Be. When Torrid plays retro rather than idiotically juvenile, it can't be beat.  Someone asked if I'd ever looked at Lee Lee's Valise, but when I did, I found the clothes too much alike and kind of trying too hard.

The summer dresses in my closet, some of which I'll wear this summer and some of which I won't come from Torrid, Coldwater Creek, eShakti, Joe Browns from Simply Be and Monroe and Main.

My fun purchases of the summer were Joe Browns from Simply Be.

I'm planning for a September wedding, so I have purchased a few new things, as well. I am always thrilled when I can find something that fits and makes me look better. It's not always easy, but worth it in the end.

It was funny, I smiled all the way through it.

Post pictures when you are home again please.

My advice to newbie weight loss people - try it in at least three sizes. Sometimes this is the size you think you are and one and two sizes smaller, sometimes it is size you are plus one up and one down. I also suggest trying on styles you do not think you can wear to see how they fit a new body. I went on a LOT of trying on expeditions with my purse locked in the trunk of my car - no purchases, pure science experiment.

I followed Vickie's advice and I was amazed at how inconsistent the sizes can be. The size I ended up buying was the smaller one, because it fit. I would have never picked it first!
