Not Your G-Ma’s Wardrobe

You missed these soulful pictures of me gazing at nothing while pushing the

little camera remote in my hand didn’t you….. ;-)

I knew it!

So I thought I would pop in for another extended facebook status..

Just because I miss you guys.. so much!

I thought you might enjoy some Not Your G-Ma’s Wardrobe shots this week.

This is what I wore this Sunday.

I don’t always wear a dress on Sunday anymore – although growing up I

wore a dress to church without fail. Because I was a good little girl. ;-)

Now I am a big girl, and I know that what you wear isn’t who you are..

Wow – I should put that on a pillow huh!!

Enough deep thoughts for this post…

Yes, those are plain white flip flops I am wearing.

Bunions and all.. (I am being quite rebellious)

I got this dress at TJ Maxx a couple of years ago, and I love it.

I believe it was all of $15.

The sweater was $10 from Ross.

But the exciting thing I want to point out about this look

is the fact that my legs do not have their usual.. what should I call it..

Mind blowing zombie-like glaring whiteness – ess

It  remains true that my skin still cannot abide the sun.

And, in an oh-so-funny twist of fate, I break out in hives from self-tanners.

And yet my normally alabaster limbs have an almost human tone in these pictures..

It is because of a discovery I have made that I am most excited about.

It is called Air Silk.

That’s right.. they call it spray on hosiery.

Yes, I have reached a whole new low of vanity..

I admit that freely, and am learning to accept it.

In the meantime, air traffic controllers no longer have to name my

legs as a potential glare hazard to their pilots..

So there you go..or as the new online lingo goes..

YOLO..

I am so cool and savvy it is almost painful..

Look at me and my wild spray on legs..

Next week I am trying out a set of spray on abs..

And you know the rub-on tattoo’s can’t be far behind ;-)

Love you guys – I am taking this blogging thing slowly and

one week at a time.. it just keeps calling to me..

    I almost cried when I saw this post. I’ve missed your wardrobe posts so, so much! You look beautiful as always. Love that dress on you (and maybe on me if I can find one!). I’ve never heard of spray on hosiery, but may have to give it a shot during the long winter months of ghostly white skin. Thanks again for being my trailblazer! And thanks even more for coming back to your blog. I haven’t give up on you yet! Take it as slow as you need to. We’ll be here.

    I was so happy when I saw your post. I’ve always looked forward to seeing what cute outfits you would wear each week. Even more than the outfits I like hearing about you and your honesty about not being perfect. I will patiently wait until you feel the call to post again. It’s kinda like ice cream, if you have ice cream everyday it’s not special.

    Great to see your post again! You do have a sense of humor G-ma (although I still have a hard time believing you are a G-ma!). Love that aqua outfit, great color on you. Tallulah Eulallie definitely said it best. What/where is Ross please? Online perhaps? Do share if you don’t mind :)
