Emily called me the other day...yes, she called me!
She wanted to know what I had been up to since I haven't updated my blog.
It had only been five days since she left.
Made me feel special.
So this is what I've been doing...
Visits from ugly birds
|This one was damn ugly|
Had Dining Room painted.
Was enticed by all the Fall e-mails, catalogs, blogs, etc. So I bit.
If you have never visited The Vivienne Files, she did a lovely series on how to "Start from Scratch" this summer. Something like a twelve step process. I found it very helpful paring down my closet and also figuring out what, if anything, was missing. The plan was to go into fall with A PLAN. I will post on that later.
Anyhoo, Emerson Fry came out with their Fall Collection. It always looks so good and so me. Looky...
It's beautiful and one of my core colors...Grey (the other is navy in case anyone was wondering).
I did want a nice pair of casual grey pants (I just have cords) and the sweater coat would be perfect in Tennessee.
EF Frenchie Pant - Iron, size 30
Was I bloated? Bad Posture? Preggers?
The material has stretch and the pants are comfortable.
Tushy doesn't look bad but again with the pot belly! Me thinks the rise is too low.
I am 5'6 and I had these rolled under at least two inches.
Oh but look closer...
Did I order the men's? Nope. Obviously if I were a man I'd hang to the left. Ugh.
Now for the sweater coat...
This is more coat than sweater. I started perspiring just looking at it.
Is not lined.
It has two snaps at the neck and a snap right below the chest. Heavy duty snaps.
I can not put my arms by my sides...so thick.
It was awful!
And so, back it all goes.
Well, I decided to recreate the original look with items I currently own or are thinking of purchasing...
I still want to get some animal print flats and a teal/petrol bag appeals to me this fall.
Patience, patience, patience.
