The best laid plans...
Not sure how the saying goes but I can assure you that usually I have laid out some good plans that will most likely go array. I was planning on going to Fashion's Night Out and wearing one of those outfits I put together from Polyvore. I had prepared to show you which one I wore and explain how I purchased the pieces from the local thrift stores. I was going to showcase the Jan Strimple's fashion show at the Galleria and all. I was so excited. BUT, my car decided to break down. Wait, I knew it needed a tune up so I had one done which did not fix my problem. Seems that I need a fuel pump! So I sat here at my house with husband and three children. I cooked, cleaned, and did a load of laundry.
Maybe next year.

Ladies, ladies, ladies we need to get ready for Fall. Although it's still 90 degree weather in Dallas it is time to get ready for the new season. I recently saw a Polyvore board created by the editors at Net-a-porter. And believe me, it was good. However, the items did not come in plus size. So, I decided to create a board especially for the curvy girls of the world.
What do you think?

I am thinking of items that I already have to wear to Fashion Night Out 2012. I know it is a few days away, but it's better to be prepared than not. I just bought an awesome green purse from the thrift store Saturday and I want to wear it on that night. What do you think of this ensemble.

Today was Meet the Teacher day at my son's school. This is his first year of his formal education as a Kindergartener. *Tear*
Although, this polyvore board is what I wish I could have worn my actual outfit came from the wonderful thrift store.
1.Shirt - Lane Bryant $4.99
2. Skirt - Talbots - $3.99
Yes, my outfit was $9. This should be enough reason for everyone to visit their local thrift store.
Lipsy leopard print top, $56 / Plus size skirt / Charles Philip Shanghai leopard shoes / Shoulder handbag / Engagement ring / Kenneth Jay Lane jewelry, $67 / Vintage sunglasses / Sheer scarve / Staedtler Lumograph Drawing and Sketching Pencils - BLICK art...
This is the perfect outfit to wear to start the school year on the right foot. Mixing prints and color blocking is all the rage this year. Today is meet the teacher night and I will be wearing an outfit very similar to the one posted but using thrifted finds, of course.
