My scary Bill Cosby moment

Last night I went shopping at the mall. I realized two things…

1) I can no longer wear juniors fashions. Guess it must have been turning 30 or something. No really, I haven’t been able to wear these styles for a while. They are just not cut out for my curves and an X-Large, usually in a real woman’s size is actually a medium. So even if a friend suggests otherwise, if you are over 30, you should avoid this section at all costs (If you brave though, enter at your own risk)

2) Just because something looks good on the rack, doesn’t means it looks good on…case in point, this:

The pattern on the rack looked kinda 80’s, but cool in a blue and black leopard print sorta way. I put it on and realized that I was wearing a sweater I would have seen on the Cosby Show, Perfect Strangers, or heck, even Too Close for Comfort! Talk about terrorific! Is this not one of the most hideous looks you’ve seen in a while? I didn’t know what to do, so I just stood there making this shocked and stunned face in the mirror. Also, it didn’t help that I had my black, too tight work pants on that aren’t the most flattering. Geez, I know this is pretty darn bad, so don’t go signing me up for What not to Wear, ok?

Well, in other non-fashion faux pas news, I’m going to Keeneland tomorrow and I found an extra cute top that did fit (it was from the women’s section). I’m going to pair that with some heels and new jeans from Old Navy. I wanted to wear a dress, but I couldn’t find anything I just loved at a reasonable price. I will still feel stylin’ though in what I did get.

Hope you guys have a great weekend! Send me your Terrorific Tuesday projects this weekend and Monday by 6 at the latest. I can’t wait to see your wonderful concoctions Swellions! I did want to add that if you don’t have a blog, but have a flickr site, you can send me your link as well. Just as long as I have something to link to and that you can explain your idea/concept, everyone is welcome to participate!

Until next time,
Alexa

so much for the weekend

Well, the weekend is officially over. I had a pretty good one. It was a “country” kinda weekend. I went to Saddle Ridge, Austin City, and Cadillac Ranch. HOOOT! I guess I can relate to each of the places, cause I am a country girl at heart. I was, back in the day, into country music and CMT and yesterday, I flipped on CMT to watch the top 20 video countdown (I actually like Bucky Covington now – go figure). Anyway, when we went to Austin City last night, I was out there dancin’ and havin’ a good ol’ time. My two friends didn’t want to dance with me, so I danced by myself and they stood by the wayside. That’s cool. I have no qualms about doing so. I just like to have a good time, and I don’t think it is weird or odd…it’s just me. Oh, and do I mention, I can do this fueled by coca colas? Yeah, a lot of people think I’m drunk even though I am not.

Other than that, went to Keeneland. Didn’t win anything. We kept throwing in 50ยข for a $2 bet between the four of us. I tell ya…long shots hardly ever work out. I will always go for the 8-1, 10-1 odds horses before I’ll go for a longshot. But what do I know, I don’t know anything about horse racing!

Tonight’s random thought:
I never quite understood the bread in the fridge concept. I hate cold, crusty bread. It just doesn’t go down the right away. Sure, maybe it stays fresh a little longer, but I don’t understand the whole preservation thing, when it only costs a little over a dollar to begin with.
