I hate to say it but it’s basically the middle of August. Does this give anyone besides me a bit of anxiety!?! So many plans, so much good intention, so much yet undone! Then I look back on summer so far and realize my family and I have had great BIG summer fun! We are working our way through our summer fun list and will be lucky enough to do most if not all of our fun activities! A couple weeks ago, we hit the zoo and I had two good reasons to wear something besides a maxi dress:
- The weather was iffy. Windy, cloudy, sunny, rainy. Make up your mind, Alberta.
- I wanted to style up my Flatter Me belt in preparation for … wait for it because this is supremely exciting for me … my guest appearance on the Flatter Me Belt blog!!!!!
I’m sure my reader(s) have my every word memorized therefore you know that I adore my Flatter Me belt. I have posted about it many times and worn it regularly since I got it a little over a year ago. I can safely say that it is my favourite belt of all time, and the fact that it was designed by an Edmontonian AND is manufactured ethically in China just makes it all the more amazing! Claire, *the* designer, got wind of my Uber Fan status and as it turns out, she is a fellow thrift enthusiast! So now she is my official transcontinental BFF. She doesn’t know that, but that’s what
stalkers uber fans do; we make declarations.
I was beyond flattered when Claire invited me to be featured on her blog! I immediately wanted to go shopping for something new from VV Boutique for this awesome experience, and when I finally managed to
ditch the kids get some time to myself to shop, I found the perfect piece and came up with one of my favourite thrifted outfits of all time…
I’m telling you, Flatter Me makes everything fit! Pants gape at the back? Belt it! Shirt a bit too blousy? Belt it. Gain 10 lbs from ice cream and blended drinks? Loosen it up then belt it! I should say (again) that I’m not being paid to exhort here, I just can’t help myself.
I heart you, Outfit.
