This weekend I went with a theme, BLACK AND WHITE.
I'll admit, it didn't just happen that way, nor did I just tell myself wear only black/white schemes this weekend, no...it is mostly out of pure laziness.
Both days I even wore 90% the same accessories or some very close variation of each.
I'll tell you why I'm so lazy about it right now, because I'm not all that happy with the way my wardrobe is fitting these days. So its mostly out of what I can find that actually FITS....yeah, I've got some weight gain going on that I'm not particularly fond of.
It started way back in Oct. when I went on vacation, sure...but I got it back to a suitable spot-THEN STUPID MOTHER NATURE HAD TO GO AND THROW A SNOWSTORM MY WAY, which stranded me in Illinois at xmas time for 4 extra days.
Four extra days means four extra days of lethargy and lots and lots of cookies.
Ever since, things just keep on expanding.
Gah! Hate! Grrrrr!
So what you see below are things I have found that kinda work with my "new" figure-or detract the eyes from areas I'm not happy with (ie: expanding gut! oh we girls and our body issues)

To detour eyes away from my "problem areas", I've taken to wearing things that are a little more revealing, even if I'm covered up...I'm showing you my curves, particularly in the chest area-I figure if anything it'll distract the attention, right?
I've also taken to piling on the accessories, a little flair and bling will definitely help my situation.
And I bough the above purse this weekend which I LOVE...can't tell you how much I've been jealous of all the downtown girls and their awesome rockstar fringe-y bags...for MONTHS NOW!
Finally I just got one, and its from H&M so its not like I broke the bank at all. Yay!
Eh, if anything, least I've still got good hair.
Well hair I adore, as I say that I realize it's not everyone's cup of tea-but it's this girl's "THING"
I also bought the belt the same time I got the purse. The other day on FB I posted a pic of the beautiful Joan Jett because I particularly liked this one outfit she had on. I told myself to start dressing more like that...and this belt will help me on my way.

This time around I opted for a drapy top, showing off the girls without showing off the midriff...diverting attention you see.
Pretty much all the same accessories, necklace-belt-scarf
(although different, but still doing the same thing yesterday's scarf did)
Maybe I could try accessorizing with a smile once in a while?
Why so serious?
I feel silly smiling by myself I guess.
*Black boots-Jessica Simpson
*Black purse and belt-H&M
*Multi print scarf-F21
*Silver necklace-Thrift Store
*White bracelet-Beacon's Closet
Ok kiddies-hope you're weekend went well.
Nevermind my ramblings about my body...clearly its nothing I can't fix with visits to the gym.
I'm out...gotta jet. I'm off to the Lower East Side for about an hour and one drink (or so I hope my willpower will stick with me for this plan).
Boyfriend is deejaying, I should be nice and check it out.
(yes, I said BF...whoops, is that allowed?)
