Winner, Beginner, and Slimmer?

Killing my feet for killer shoes
 I won my first blog contest! Candid Classic held a contest for a $25 CSN gift certificate and I won! I will share what I purchase when it arrives. Check out their site because they have this, that, and the other thing. Check out Candid Classic as well!

Today A Taste of T started a new Thursday feature called "Thought Bubble Thursday." Come join, it's fun!

This is a dress that until today I thought was just so-so. I've even thought of donating it. As I studied it more, I realized that the sleeves and skirt give it a little '40s touch. I love that era of style! When I wear it people ask if I've lost weight. I haven't, but I guess the style and placement of the ribbon is deceiving and slimming? I'm not trying to deceive you, my dress is. Bad dress! No, good dress!

Tomorrow: Seven More Random Things and More
