Been cutting back on various commitments, per doctor's orders.

Haven't been sick for a whole 5 days.  :)  Let's hope I get a bit more of a run going, but I'll take 5 days at this point.  (Serial colds alternating with stomach flus almost continually since November.)

Found a dress for my cousin's wedding,

(Please excuse the messy bathroom--I'm reorganizing it--and the dumb hand thing.  I do that when having pictures taken.).

And yes, I do look a little like a celebration of Truffula trees.

The fascinator (hat) is my favorite bit.  We've all been encouraged to wear hats, and my cousin is an Aussie on her mom's side--royal wedding hats a big plus!  Only problem with it is it cost more than the dress!  LOL

I have champagne shoes and a camel trench (for the rooftop drinks reception, in case of cold or wind).

(The wedding is in Louisville in April, and I'm so excited to see my family.)

I had 6 other options before this and trust me when I say it's the best of the lot, and that the whole ensemble cost less than 2 of the other dresses, by a lot in one case.

That said, I need to go on WW again. Or cut out sugar.  Or something.  Because a.) my blood sugar was a bit high and b.) my weight is not where I like it.

Finished one small work project today, and worked about 5 hours on another.  Design takes a lot longer than production on the web for me these days.  Should just get all "back end" jobs.

Sorry for the ramble.  Told you it would be a little bit of everything.

Super cute outfit, especially the fascinator, which matches the dress so well! You look great!

And so glad the changes in what you take on seem to be helping how you feel. Hope it keeps up!

Thanks! I'm so chuffed about the fascinator. Did I mention that the dress and sweater AND the trench coat by itself each cost less than the fascinator? And the whole thing together was about as much as the dress only I had bought at Nordies, so I felt like it was an all around big win. ;)

The outfit looks great!

There's another wedding coming up in my family in September, so I'm on the lookout for clothes again. Right now I'm tending towards a dirndl (and I never thought I'd say such a thing, lol).

5 days of feeling well is good. Here's hoping you'll get a lot more of those!

Thanks. Yes, feeling good feels good. More, please!


And I am surprised. How cool, though, that you have a flattering to you national dress! Are you going for the real wool kind or something dirndl-ish?

If I do buy a dirndl I'd go for something dirndl-ish, since I already have the traditional one. :) I'd still go for something in the traditional colours, though. Can't stand the green / purple / pink matches they have on some.

You look great, girl! The fascinator's seriously awesome! (of course, in true Royal Wedding style, you could always have gone for the York girl's antlers ;-) )

Yay for feeling better! Here's hoping your good days continue!

Thank you! I am going to lend Eugenie my fascinator when I'm done because she has no taste!


Feeling better is so nice. Long may it continue.

I do love the fascinator! I had no idea those were even purchaseable in the US, and I'm proud of you for (1) having found one! that (2) matches your dress so well. It's a fab ensemble.

Found it at Nordstrom, where I never shop. But I suspected they would havsomethibg fabulous.

On phone! Sorry for text errors!

Ironically, they had two choices in this in melon and one in magenta, either would have gone. They had about 50 hat and fascinator options

My phone is so horrid, but only on LJ replies. It won't let me see the sentence I'm typing. I have to wait until later, and then if I make edits, it flips up again and I'm editing blind.

You look gorgeous in that dress, which is gorgeous in and of itself. I adore the fascinator, too. WIN!

Thanks! I decided against the sophisticated champagne dress with sequin cap sleeves in favor of some color and cheapitude!

You look great! Glad to hear you have had five whole days of feeling better, too.
