In the great big football field of fashion, I'm on the sidelines. I don't play ball and I'm not a cheerleader either. I care how I dress, but I'm not part of the action. I don't subscribe to fashion magazines and you'll never see me in Manolo Blahniks. I'm a Crocs girl. I'd don't care if they're not sexy nor that they're no longer in style. Crocs are mega comfortable and that's all that matters to me.
Trends take a l-o-n-g time to trickle down to the plus-size market - if they ever get there at all. That's why I buy classics that last well after the trend train has left the station. But once in a while, I do wish I could be on the front of the Style Express.
Imagine my surprise then when I found this advertisement in our local newspaper. Paula's Boutique, a local shop that offers the latest in fashion, is selling my Ditto sweater. I can't believe that I'm in the cab of the fashion train and in a sweater I made all by myself!
Another stop along this fashion route: a radial yoke shirt on UllaPopken.com - and in my size, too. (I'm passing this one by though since I like the color nor the placket tie.)
So as my girlfriend Theresa so often says, "Check me out!" I'm a hip chick today... and here I thought I was just a hippy chick - and not in a late 1960s way either. I guess that makes me a hip hippy chick! That's fine with me.
