.: And the Oscar goes to... :.

Someday someone may ask me what I'm wearing and I will shout out a major designer name. But that day is just a fantasy and in reality here's what I'm wearing for Oscar-watching dinner. I haven't worn a pair of jeans for 2 years because it only leads to heartbreak. I finally found a good pair on sale at the ever-so-reliable American Eagle and learning to love jeans again.
I got the fun Oscar ballot from Jessica Jones' blog. She's been so sweet and sharing the ballots for a couple of years now.

.: round and round :.

I learned that you can't take something at face value. Like this top. The bow was supposed to be in the back, gracefully plunging and decently show some skin. But it's so sheer and I'm not too keen on not wearing anything underneath. All my tanks are way too high on the back, and the plunging-bow-skin-showcase-effect was not happening. So I turned the blouse around and problem solved. One top, two styles.

.: dots :.

They said full-figured gals are not supposed to wear polka dots. They said silky dress will clung to your body and highlights your flaws. I said throw a denim jacket over silky polka dots dress and be done with it.

.: borderline :.

Last Saturday we played tourist and went down to San Diego. It was a lovely day to be out, but it got colder towards the afternoon. Good thing I came prepared!
