I have curves. I've struggled to dress my body to flatter my pear shape. I've finally learned to work with my dangerous curves. I finally accept that this is MY shape; I've made peace with my body. I encourage other pear shaped ladies to accept and love their shape; it is a beautiful, classic womanly shape.
I'm also a ballroom dance lover. I'll share what I've learned about dressing for dance, competition, ballroom glitter, sparkle and glamour.

This will probably be my last post until after the competition on Friday.
I'm pushing through the mountain of homework that was assigned during the first week of class. I need to be well rested and up to date on all of my work and homework.
This weekend blazed by in a flurry of readings, homework, students emailing technical questions regarding a new online Human Development lab, visiting my mom who was hospitalized yesterday, representing the guardianship services organization I volunteer with at a health fair and finalizing some arrangements for one of the clients I guardian for.
I feel just a tiny bit behind and frazzled.
Plus, I needed to find time to practice, practice, practice...oh and be a mom...and babysit my grandson. Sigh...deep breath.
Blogging soothes me...it helps me summarize my week and sharpen my focus on goals for the new week.
Calvin Kline dress; Nine West sandals; Lia Sophia necklace
This is what I wore to practice for the comp. Super hot day, but awesome practice. I feel good, confident, like a contender.
At the health fair.
Dress Barn dress; Adrienne Vittadini scarf; Ann Klein iflex shoes
This is how I dressed to represent the organization.
I stopped by Walgreens to pick up my falsies for the comp. Yep....without them dancer's faces would fade away under the lights and sparkle.
I hope everyone has a great week. I'm looking forward to getting through the week and getting to the comp.
I will be peeking in on everyone and comment on your posts...but I'm getting my work done and getting my head into dance mode...
