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.

Feeling lavender and girly!
I feel so girly in lavender.
I have posted this cardigan in the past and I really love wearing it...its as if the color has 'color therapy' powers..it makes me feel instantly fresh and pretty and happy.
The cardigan is Eddie Bauer and was thrifted. The hat, purchased at The Closet Exchange. Pants, New York and Company, top...very old boyfriend sweater. Necklace.........
....you got it....Lia Sophia. Its a retired piece. A former advisor had some supplies and jewelry to sell and I purchased some of her things...I wanted to have a few retired pieces as booking gifts, but I had to keep this one!
....I didn't post the outfit that I wore with these boots because it really didn't look very flattering, but I had to share the boots with you. These are Frey boots. I had a pair this color when when I was a teen and loved them. I wore them everywhere and thought I was really cool. And then I got rid of them. A few days ago, I found this pair..with metal studs on the shaft at T.J. Maxx and fell in love. Its funny; my cousin Rhonda had a pair just like my old pair!!! Rhonda and I did have similar interests as teenagers...we both liked David Cassidy and Bobby Sherman, but not Donny Osmond.
We both read Tiger Beat and FaVE magazines as teens...and had our celebrity husbands chosen. (David Cassidy all the way).
We swooned over the boys. Now I swoon over things like this:
and this pretty Art Deco necklace by Lia Sophia. Can't wait to wear it!! Yep, I ordered it.
oh.....and I swoon over this beautiful bedroom!
See, the girlie theme reigns!
Good night, my friends...tonight its early bed time for me. I'm wishing you all sweet dreams in your own version of the swoon worthy dream bed!
