Right now it's a pair of black shorts and a polo shirt.

I'm sure the other ladies here will agree, three piece suits are damn fine.
That's a new one to me too, I must admit. I do agree with the statement though.

I also recall that the last time I wore a full Highland outfit in public (it was at a work leaving ceilidh), this one very cute young woman openly and literally squeeeeed before me. At the time I had no idea what she meant - I mean everyone wears a kilt in those parts - but later I understood. We even shared a slow dance together. I never saw her again.

You can't beat a nice bit of tailoring/schmutter. Male or female. I love my suits. Yamamoto, Adolfo Dominguez.

tsq, I may have a further excuse to run up to Lynnwood! Is the store closer to I-5 or the offramp to the Alderwood Mall?

Hmmm

A shirt with one of my favourite mathematical conundrums on it



And my 'fat pants' pair of jeans.

I do need to update my wardrobe one day. It's hard to commit to fine clothing though when you're not sure whether your mass is going to increase, decrease or stay the same.

Has anyone else ever had to deal with this problem? I don't want to spend $500 and then discover that my body's changed shape in six months.

They are. Though I care more about the suit being well-tailored and on a fit body than I do about the vest.

I've been anywhere from 140 to 220 (up and down and up and down again over the past 15 years) and now I'm pregnant and have to get yet another entire wardrobe for that. Two actually, one for work and one for weekends. Don't even ask me what I've spent in bras over the years. But I feel better when my clothes fit properly and complement whatever shape I am at the moment, so it's worth it to me. Shop sales, or thrift or consignment stores. There's always a way to stretch your dollars. (I also trade clothes with my sister, who always seems to be at the opposite point from me in her weight swings, but I'm lucky in that.)

OT, today I am wearing NOT a pregnancy top, but an empire-style top that might as well be a pregnancy top... purple and red tie-dye-ish pattern, 3/4 sleeves and I think the collar situation counts as a boat neck. Dark grey pants, black socks and the same clogs as ever.

I just want to re-state my love for empire-style tunics and shirts.

Today, one of my favourite outfits: All Blue (no, I don't have names for all of my outfits... well, not all of them ).

Dark blue jeans, dark blue jacket, electric blue shirt, dark blue tie, blue sneakers. If only I still had my hair dyed in blue, it would be quite an ensemble.

Exceptionally crappy pic today.

^ All Blue is excellent. One of my favorite color combinations.

I haven't felt great today, so I never bothered changing out of my bathrobe and socks. And then, since my legs were cold, I added a pair of leggings.

Thanks! I love wearing variations of the same colour together. Beside All Blue (actually, there are a couple of All Blues, and I can switch items among them), I have a few All Dark Greys, and since this summer an All Off-White for warmer weather.

Unfortunately, I don't think I have one. It was many years ago when I was in university, before the ubiquitousness of digital cameras. It was a very dark blue: you could only see a hint of the hue. But it contrasted nicely with the blond-reddish highlights in my beard (now lost to grey, sad to say).
