i think it’s a day worth mentioning when the weight on your driver’s license is no longer a lie…and may even, in fact, be a bit of an exaggeration. amazing stuff, really.
for those of you on new year’s resolution diets, i don’t recommend my method of weight loss (nor do i think it would be possible unless you were lucky enough to contract some sort of rare south american tapeworm), but there is definitely some excitement involved in going down a size (or two…). at this rate, i might even be able to wear mcqueen by the end of the year. because, you know, size is the only thing standing between me and a $2,000 blazer.
in more realistic retail therapy news (see? you said you wanted more frugal finds – it’s like ‘i dream of jeannie’ in blogland), i happened on the rodarte for target collection on last sunday’s target trip, and ended up bringing their navy lace tee home with me:
(hmm, maybe my new hobby should be learning to take photos that don’t suck…) it’s sold out online, but if you happen to spot one in the store, it’s a worthy buy, which is saying something, as i’d more or less given up hope on the entire target/designer collab thing after so many misses of late.
but lacy lingerie is everywhere for spring, and if i can nail the look for $16.99, i’m a happy shopper. the layering options are endless – over a dark tank and under a cardi, under a summer dress, peeking out under a v-neck sweater or a menswear vest…you get the idea. (i actually did take a photo of the layered look, but it makes the first one look like ansel adams.) sizing was a little on the narrow side…buy like you’re buying juniors, and you’ll be safe.
with that, i’m off to take a few highly invasive medical tests. but i have brownies waiting for me when i get home. so that’s something.
