Fashion Faux Pas

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

fashion faux pas....the unsuccessful attempts so many of us have made
trying to copy a current style with the stuff the plus size stores throw at us.
And so many times I've ended up feeling like the dog in the picture.
Thankfully...not so much anymore.

I managed to organize a closet I use for storing out of season clothes
and the stuff I haven't worn in a while.
It's my time capsule... I have suits that are classic and fitted
and used to fit a slimmer me
{...35 pounds lighter...and the one I am going to be again...}.
I am never getting rid of them...they are like medals of honor.
In fact...if I ever fit into them again..I'll start a new trend....
I'll wear them inside out, so the tag with the size shows on the outside emoticon

My back is almost normal again...and I read that ALEVE may be even safer than NSADs (I think that's aspirin). Happy to say...that is what I've been taking.

once again...good news for me....Maybe it's a new streak

ciao emoticon

    Ha! Love your sense of humor. emoticon Wish I would've kept my suits and dresses from the late '80's (1980's, not 1880's) My 6's were my fat clothes LOL.

    Poor pup - wonder what the story is on that! Many years ago, while active duty Army Nurse Corps, I sprained my wrist really badly. I went thru numerous NSAIDS from aspirin to indocin to ibuprofen, before settling on ibuprofen. Now, they have the Cox 2 inhibiters and even more varieties, but I'm sticking with the ibuprofen for now. Glad your back is getting better!

Glad to hear that you are feeling progressively better! You crack me up! I love that you said you would wear your clothes inside out so the size tags can be viewed by all!! emoticon

Have a wonderful Friday!

    Technically NSAIDS are all anti-inflammatories , trust me on that one I had a close encounter with a truck (yes ,the truck won .) I kept my skinny clothes till my husband pulled the rug out from under me he said and I quote " You are getting older now ,perhaps your wild European fashions are best left in the closet" Ouch.Licence to shop though !!!!

    I am glad that you are feeling better. I pain in the back is as bad as a pain in the arse.
I kept one pair of jeans from when I was thin before. When I reached my goal weight, I went shopping for new clothes. I love to shop, shop to I drop, just wish I had the money to do it. emoticon It is therapy and exercise. That is my story and I am sticking to it.

    Woo hoo for your back. Hope it keeps getting better.

Why are the plus size fashions so plain to downright ugly? Most of the fashions don't matter about the size, so why do they insist on only doing them for the smaller sizes? It is infuriating.

Thanks for the laugh! Happy Sparking!

    The older I get, the less I care about "fashion". I mostly care about comfort.

And I agree, hang on to the stuff. You WILL be able to wear the slim clothes again.

    Just hang onto the stuff - it'll come back in style before you know it. (Not the "fat clothes", but the suits - with or without shoulder pads - and the other fashions.) I distinctly remember garments that I gave away a couple years ago in a cleaning frenzy that, if I had them today, would be worth money. *sigh* See where tidy gets ya? emoticon

    Great idea. Why not wear them upside down too. You can wear the shirt on your booty and the pants on your torso. I'm looking forward to seeing you in your Nehru suit.

    Ha ha!

Yes, Aleve is a safer NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory) because it is a Cox-2 selective inhibitor, while something like Aspirin inhibits both Cox-1 and Cox-2 irreversibly. Something like Ibuprofen inhibits both as well (I think), but does so reversibly. All very fascinating :) In any case, Aleve should cause fewer gastrointestinal side effects!

    I'm so glad your back is getting better! Gee, I wish that article discussed whether naproxen is safe for people with high blood pressure and those on blood thinners. Oh, well.

Had to laugh at the dog. Some outfits make me feel as though I should be under the big top at the circus! Woo Hoo for us that it's not so much anymore. Hopefully, you'll be in those suits soon. Fashion statement, indeed!
