Fashion ... on my mind ...

While I love my chocolates as much as the next girl, the only thing stopping me from gobbling them down are my clothes. I love my clothes. It would break my heart if I could not fit into them and had to give them away to some other skinny bitch! I have collected them over the years and each piece is an extension of my personality. So while, health and tiny waist, are one of 'my motivators' dragging me to the gym, clothes are by far the greatest reason today for me to stay in shape (no matter what!). 

So since I love my clothes so much (regardless of what others might think of my fashion sense) I am thoroughly enjoying wearing them and celebrating them on my blog! Although, in my previous fashion blogs I have received a few 'yawns' but it's not stopping me from continuing with my fashion journal. From what I understand blogs are a venue to express yourself and not what others want you to express!? Am I right? So 'yawn away' my critics, you ain't stopping me (rebel within me is wide awake, today, it seems)

    Looking nice! Love the skirt in the first pic and the fuschianess in the second!! And obviously the closeups! :-P By the way, come soon so you can be my photography muse too!!!

    I remember that grey jacket from London!! We so need to go back! It's overdue! Actually I will use that as a motivator also along with the birthday goal :-)

    Eat chocolate- in limited portions ONLY :-) (did you EVER imagine me saying that!) Well the day had come when I realized my clothes don't fit!!!!
