solutions...

what to do when you are 30 years old,
plump , okay, okay, fat,
but you still like to stay up with the fashions?


you come up with your own solutions!
i have professed my love of all things frilly and floral in fashion here before.
the main problem i tend to encounter is the length of the dresses.
let's just say it,
i don't like my rear end hanging out when the wind slightly blows,
nor, i'm sure, would those around me.

but i found a couple cute dresses at Target the other day.
Way too short.


solution?
no, not sewing.
that would be even scarier :)

layer!

with another skirt underneath,
or,
i even took an old cotton slip out of my daughter's dress up one day
(don't have pictures of that one yet).

you can see how short that adorable blue dress is.
by adding a white linen skirt that's ruffled only on the bottom
(so it doesn't add any more bulk around the torso),
it worked perfectly!



God Bless,
Mandy

You look cute, but where's your other leg?
This is from Aunt Sally who does want to go through the whole profile thingy.
