Step into my fashion haus. But this time you won’t have to watch out for the cobwebs and dust bunnies. I may not have been in here since March for a fashion haus post. (That was when I shared my extremely early or somewhat belated Valentine’s Day outfit. Remember this cute little tulle skirt?) But I have been in my fashion haus to do some spring cleaning. Click the link to see some of my fav spring cleaning tools. You can probably smell that sweet lavender essential oil I used, mixed with baking soda, to freshen the mattress.
But wait. Are you scratching your head wondering why in the world there would be a mattress in my fashion haus? Well, sometimes it has to double as a guest bedroom!
Today, however, I bumped the ironing board out of the way, hid the basket of wrinkled clothing just to make room for you. So, welcome!
My Olive Pants Fit!
Girls, I know it’s hard to believe. My olive pants fit. Both pairs. Crazy, huh? Have pinched myself til my arm is bruised over here. But they really, truly fit. Even after a broken foot and two very lazy months. Even after multiple trips out of town. They FIT!!
I bought the first pair as an item on the spring 2017 (yes, a year ago) Get Your Pretty On Style Challenge. They were snug when I bought them. So I hung them in the closet and shut the door, ignoring them. Bought the second pair on sale about a month later. Yes, I remembered the first pair. But hoped this second pair would be more comf til I could squeeze into the first pair. You do that, too, right?
Well, today, I felt very brave and slightly slender. I tell you, that MiraLax is a miracle! Decided to try on the chubby (as in more likely to fit if I’m chubby) pair. They fit! Then decided to step away from the mirror and try on the skinny (as in very doubtful they will ever fit) pair and THEY FIT! It may never happen again so I snapped some pics.
I give you the skinny pair, first. Because I bought them first.
Loft olive cargo pants, Target “A New Day” tee, K-Mart (you read that right) pink loafers, Target sandals, Target “Gilligan & O’Malley” no-show panty, gifted tassle necklace (both from my sister). Included the panties because of the rule…your panties need to match your outfit. Proof positive mine do! And my new fav spring fragrance “In the Sun” by Bath and Body Works.
And now, the chubby pair. Same size, supposedly. Slightly different shade of olive.
Pretty much ‘ditto’ on the outfit. These olive pants are Loft, too. But left off the panties in this pic. 🙂
I could call it a post here but thought you might like to see proof that I actually got these puppies over my hips and behind. Here ya go.
The Proof is in the Pudding or the Pics
I was feeling rather cocky and full of myself, once I realized both olive pants fit. Took so many photos that I was late for my 10:00 am doctor appointment. They do say ‘pride goeth before the fall’.
Took this picture before I finished my make-up, I was that excited! These are the skinny ones even! Looking heavenward in gratitude.
You can see the clothes to be ironed in the background. Didn’t get them moved far enough out of the way.
This is the chubby pair.
Now the ironing is out of the way but the spray starch photo-bombed.
Then I really got out of control and tried my hand at the sloppy tuck or the half tuck. I have created a monster. Be sure to click the pics for the full effect.
Quite obnoxious, huh?
And if that wasn’t enough, I am loving my LipSense. Thank you to my reps, Carrie at A Stylish Fit and my GYPO friend, Wendy. Everyone said, ‘order Bella’. So, I did. And I love it.
They don’t call me Ole Chipmunk Cheeks for nothin’.
If you haven’t tried LipSense, please consider doing so. I am sold.
So, there you have it. The Tale of Two Pairs of Olive Pants…that fit. For now. I was so thrilled, I celebrated with chicken strips, fries, cole slaw from Cane’s. I’ll be right back out of these pants in record time. But that’s half the fun!
For Your Window Shopping Consideration
Have gathered some similar pieces for you to peruse below. By clicking on any or all of the images, I earn a few cents. Thank you for having a quick look!
Do you have anything in your closet that’s been hanging there waiting for a skinny day? Please tell me I am not the only one. Wanna take bets on how long I can wear these before they are retired to the back of the closet again. We are going to a baseball game tomorrow night, out to eat after church on Saturday night and I bought cookie mix and a cheesecake this afternoon at Walmart. I give ’em a good week. If I don’t dry them in the dryer.
Thanks for coming by, girls. I hope you can tell that I don’t take myself seriously when it comes to ‘fashion’ or ‘style’. I just like to have fun.
Hugs and kisses,
