Another double bill

So Monday's outfit - althought in my head at the time of putting it together I thought would look much better than it did in reality - sadly - but this happens and I tried it, now I know ... but Monday I felt fat - oh boy, of course you ladies know what that means is heading your way!  lol

Not thrilled
Details : Shirt - Woolworths (its a man's shirt) | Skirt : the Hub | Shoes : Truworths |
 Along came Tuesday and I quite enjoyed this - but as you can see, I've been lazy about taking my 'baby' out to do the photos and hauling it upstairs, so I've been doin the lazy kitchen area photos on the little camera - anyways, the dress is a summer dress and the VERY low cut one I wore to my nephews engagement part last year.  I put a long sleeved top underneath (never shown on the blog before from what I can remember and a purchase from Germany, so its about 6 -7 years old) with a snood. I like it and the colour and design, it is so pretty.

... and no, thats not a cigarette in my hand, it's a sucker stick ;-)


The shoes Miz T hates ... and I love

So it's Wednesday, and tomorrow will be Thursday and I am writing an exam and look at how hard I'm studying ... so now I'm off to do the right thing - read through some more of the work and make notes and hope that something sticks in my brain :-).  I don't know where my daughter got her brain from - but boy, she wrote 4 papers last week and got three A's and a B!! Sigh, it's stressful having bright kids ;-)

Hope you had a happy voting day.

  5. I like Monday's outfit? Maybe just the neck needed to be open. But i think you look good and not fat!

    And i can't really see the top under the dress on Tues, looks like one item. But you looked great. How you walk in those heals all day amazes me! Stunning tho.

    Love the snood. Need to find me one of those.

  6. I think you looked lovely on Monday - not fat at all...My husband answered a "Does my bum look big in this" kind of question this morning and of course he got it totally wrong - so he got the cold shoulder for his efforts...Normally he is very sensitive to that type of question and if there is the slightest concern that he is going to get it wrong, he takes very effective evasive action - Guess he wished that that is what he had done this morning - I also love Tuesday's shoes by the way..Lots of love

  7. I love the second outfit! I love exactly where it hits you on your knees. :) Very flattering.

  8. Thanks everyone for the sweet comments. I think you're right about the shirt Shayne - it may have looked better with a few more buttons undone and maybe a little cami under would have worked better. I was using an inspiration I saw, but next time, will definitely 'feminine' it up a bit more.

    I can't express how much I love Tuesday's shoes. On my radar now though is a leopard print pair of shoes ... I'm just itching for them, but not this month - however, maybe I can get my g-man to indulge me - I've made the men in the house feel really bad for neglecting to spoil me rotten on mother's day :-) Oh, I'm so evil.
