Crazy about Stripes!

I've been seeing a lot of stripes lately and I'm loving them! Stripes are all over the fashion scene. I use to steer clear of stripes before I lost 60lbs. No way on God's green earth was was I interested in drawing any more attention to my large chest, then with horizontal stripes hitting people in the face as I walked in a room!

Now when I see stripes I run...towards them!

I can't say I ever liked Michelle Williams in Dawson's Creek but she sure has become a great actress and is so darling here with her short crop and outfit! She is wearing Jason Wu's collection from Target. I ran to that large red bulls eye but no luck! It was all sold out! It must have been some really good stuff!

I'd like to thank you for all the kind words and prayers regarding the passing of my grandfather. The funeral was very lovely and the time with relatives was priceless!

My condolences on the death of your grandfather. It's wonderful that he lived such a full life to the very end and that you have so many photos and memories to share -- that's what will keep him alive and part of the future.
I've always liked stripes, even when they were not the trend.

Happy Spring!
Your Friend,

Loosing my grandfather was the most painful feeling ever. I'm so sorry.

About my red pants, not jeans, some kind of stretchy material.

(I am sorry to hear about your grandfather).

SO sorry for your loss....Hope your heart is healing.
Curvy gals can wear stripes! It's all about the size and placement of the stripes! That being said....60 pounds! You rock!

I swoon for black and white striped anything. I think I even have that black and white skirt pinned to my board. :D
As for Michelle Williams, I couldn't agree more. She was always detouring Joey's progress and I was team Joey. :D

I've been so bad about reading blogs. Hopefully getting back to some sort of organized.
