Lace Curtain Top


This is a spur of the moment outfit - I wanted to wear the skirt - it's from Sears and I got it on sale last year I think but haven't worn it yet.  And I had a lace top found on the same trip as yesterday's disk necklace.  Big J hates it, but I am already thinking it will go with lots of stuff.

I call it my lace curtain top because the material looks like something you would find on a curtain, only grey. It has an elastic waist and I think it might've been lovingly home-made since there are no tags.

The scarf was a last minute addition - I was on the train and my neck was cold and it just happened to be the scarf that was in my purse.  I think it turned out quite well - adds some colour to an otherwise monochrome outfit.  Had I styled it myself, conservative-dresser me would've done the matchy-matchy same colour thing and it would've looked less interesting.

For a couple of days now, I've been putting milk in my tea (instead of drinking it asian style with nothing) and I think it's causing me to bloat up.  I felt very tummy conscious today and am not sure if it was the skirt I wore or the tea.

Although I actually feel heavier than a few days ago, the good news is, due to the tummy bloat I weighed myself and am now down to 155 and a half pounds!  Yay!

    1. Thanks Sandi! You know, I was just noticing when reviewing the pics that the print almost looks like abstract roses.

  2. Milk WILL do that to you. I too have been trying to lose and WAS down to 154 before I fell off the wagon last week and am already back up to 158. :-( Congratulations on YOUR success however!

    1. Hey Susan, Don't you hate that? When your weight goes down and then back up again? With me, it's usually weeks and weeks and weeks on a plateau before going down 1 or 2 pounds.

  3. Oh, i like the top. I almost never drink milk--have had a sensitivity to it most of my life, though I do eat yogurt and cheese. And yes, to the color.

    1. Hi Terri: I hardly ever drink milk either, but for some reason got a hankering for chai and have been hooked for a few days - bloatness and all.
