Happy Friday! What a week friends...work continues to be incredibly busy and I'm definitely feeling the stress. I've been looking for lots of ways to stay balanced - I started a new sewing project, I'm reading before bed, cooking comfort food and trying to get lots of sleep. How do you handle excessive stress?
Speaking of stressful, I was really nervous about posting The Coveter, but I really want to thank you for your overwhelmingly positive response. Your comments were so insightful and I really enjoyed reading them. We're all a work in progress, aren't we? Also to clarify, the post was really about me and my own insecurities and jealousies, not the email I received. It was about me giving a lot of thought to the fact that I often wish for things that other's have, when in fact, I have it pretty darn good. I hope you feel that too for yourself.
So true story about this dress - I often go the mall for work and everytime I enter through the Bay. For months, I've been eyeballing this adorable bohemian dress by Jessica Simpson and being sad everytime I check and they don't have my size. I'm a HUGE print gal and I was really drawn to the cream background, since so many dresses I own are anchored in black. Well....last week I walk in and took one more fruitless glance at the sizes and what do you know?? Jessica Simpson actually carries a lot of her collection in plus size and I had no idea. (I don't love the Above Average section at the Bay but check once in a while - you never know when you'll spot a gem.) So one of my dream dresses had wandered over and put itself in my path...at 50% off! Yes, I know what I said - but I couldn't resist. Forgive me. (I've already worn it 4 times...that's gotta count for something right??)
