the march bed and then I realized I never posted photos of the february bed. It seems I really have lost my blogging mojo (other than the capsule wardrobe which I am just finding really embarrassing right now). So here ya go, the march bed with garlands made for another march bed back in 2013. The last two pics taken with the camera phone...february bed photos coming as soon as I am able to find them.

black is on sale!), not as wide as their mary-janes or oxfords but still wide enough for my feet. These have a very slight cloggish heel and there is sparkle in the shoe. Probably not the best footwear for a 44 year old but they will be great for my punk-rock red hat days, don't ya think?

Alegria that are usually priced over $150. I found this pair on ebay at auction for $35 with shipping. They are too big and they squeak when I walk but I still love them and know that the next pair I order (they come in pink!) will be one size smaller. Experiment, search, and shop without breaking the bank, your feet, or back!

The skirt? I love the skirt. It is mostly super comfy but it is also slightly see-through. I love the fit, flair and length of the skirt but the lining of the skirt is micro mini and I swear if I bend over it just waddles up to my waist. Sadly, as much as I love it, I fret when I wear it so I am adding it to the donation bin. Wearing clothing well for a larger frame is all about balance and comfort. If you are tugging at this and pulling at that don't wear it. I don't care how cute it looks on the hanger or on someone else or how pretty it is or if it is the perfect shade of blue, just don't do it. Let it go and move on, I speak from experience (have I mentioned peasant blouses yet?) Balancing out your shape can make or break an outfit and can make you feel all sorts of spiffy or like running home to don pajamas and weep. The skirt here is fitting enough at the hips making a slender shape. The weight of the skirt keeps the flair at the hem from trumpeting and making me look like this.
In a nutshell, think balance and comfort. You should not hanker for p.j.s and a bowl of lucky charms (I love lucky charms) as you are out and about. You should be out and about and so comfortable you are not worried about looking like a sad raccoon.

Old Focals! This pair is a blueish slate color...a bit marbled and a smidge larger than my brown frames. I will still wear my brown frames but I felt a need for some new frames and it being my birthday and all...
