Inhale, Exhale


breathe

breathe

There are two kinds of lies people always always commit. Weight and vital statistics. You can lock me up cos am guilty to both charges. hihihhii.

Okay ill come clean. Am 5'2 ( i think?), i weigh 113 lbs ( a week ago), and my waistline depending on the hour of the day i took it, or when am inhaling or exhaling. Okay am dragging you. But like i said ill come clean. My waistline is.. drum roll pls....23 inches when am sucking it all in, and 31 inches when I-don't-care-at-all, and 29 is my REAL measurement. Promise 29 is my final number. Okay now i can breathe. So hard to keep up with lies. hahahahha.

So here's what am wearing, that I got both from thrifting. The top is actually a dress and the skirt has gone some major rework, cos the original owner of this, I believe is a towering woman with a freakishly small waist of 21 inches. Well, to be honest these are some of the few reasons why i sometimes hate fashion, cause of the size issue. Am too short, am too thick, my legs aren't skinny enough. Well you get the picture. But thank God for alteration and thrift stores.

Anyway 4-5 days ago i got 17 new thrifted dresses, all for 24$. New and thrift in one sentence? How did that happen? Irony i know!

Have a great weekend everyone! Enjoy the break!

weight, vital statistics, and i add, age, are not hindrances to looking good. :)

I love the reworked skirt, Denise! And your poses in the pictures. Looks like your dancing. :)

I do love the skirt, its lovely and colourful, it was deffinately worth the alterations.
I tend to alter clothes alot too, whether its the straps or the length, im always doing some type of altering to make it a better fit.
Anyhow I hope you have a lovely weekend it that beautiful place in which you live :)

Samantha said...

I love this outfit!
Its amazing when you find an item of clothing where you love the pattern but it totally doesn't fit but with a little work you can make it fit perfectly :)
Also I can't believe you got that many dresses for that price!

Julls said...

Great job !

You lucky, lucky, woman! Where do you thrift?!

Your colors are lovely. I can relate with the skirt. I mean, I bought a thrifted one years ago and it only fit me once. When I was at the peak of my "thinness". Hee.

Summer is indeed here!
