Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

   My name is Mrs.G and I am a fashion- illiterate...

I am not a complete lost cause, I mean I don't see Clinton and Stacy jumping out from behind some bushes to attack me with secret footage.

I always play it safe, I never think to far out of the box for fear of the results. I always justify it as I am not going to spend money on something that may or may not work. I also don't see the point of buying something in an ensemble that only works as the ensemble and with NOTHING else in your closet.

When in all actuality I would kill to have pulled together ensembles instead of mounds of different pieces that may or may not work.

I never put an outfit together, I just throw something on in the morning and rush out the door. I never look polished or finished and that is something that lately I so desperately want.

I guess you could say that I avoid fashion because the fashion for bigger girls is soooooo lack luster. I mean when are designers going to realize:
1. A size 10 is not plus size
2.Just because I am plus size doesn't mean I am 40 years old, I want cute classy pieces people!
3. I am Plus size and do not wish to accentuate that with a HUGE ass print
4.Just like the Skinny Minnys out there we are all not one size fits all, so PLEASE start carrying your plus size line in stores (I am looking at you Old Navy) so I can try things on.
5. Because I am plus size doesn't mean I am rich. I can't afford $70.00 for a pair of jeans and $30.00 for a cotton t-shirt... Ahem... Lane Bryant.

For me being plus sized and summer being right around the corner (maybe, I had to have my heat on last weekend and it is mid may!) means dread every morning when it comes time to getting dressed. When the name of the game for me is to accentuate my assets (boobalas) and hide or mask my trouble areas (everything else) the summer can cause a problem. I can't just throw on a tank top and shorts and be on my way, if I did that I would be on one of those "People of Wal-Mart" emails that get sent around offices for a good laugh (you know what I am talking about). So I am reduced to wearing jeans on a 100 degree day.

Blerg!!! Do you know how much your ass sweats in jeans on a mid summer day in July?!?!?! I will spare you the details.

This summer, although I am working on loosing some ellebees, I am still bigger than I have ever been before. This is a HUGE ego punch to the gut and left me sitting on the floor of my closet one evening, in a bra and underwear, hair disheveled, crying because none of my "summer" clothes fit. Ok, some did but only about a handful. Needless to say husband was a little confused when he walked in on me under a mound of clothes sobbing.

I know I am working on loosing weight so check goal number 1 goal number 2 was going to be focusing on what I DO feel comfortable in and starting from there.

1. Bermuda shorts
2. Short sleeves
4. Gauzy or linen fabrics
5. Bright colors!
5. Wearing white (on of my summer faves)

Thank goodness this summer hippie chic is totally in because everything on my list is euuuurvery where!

With 40% off at my go to store I beefed up my summer wardrobe considerably and even bought a pair of shorts!

Everything arrives tomorrow and I am totally going to do my hair and make up, shave my legs, open a bottle of Skinny Girl Margarita and have a fashion show in my closet. I will post pics of the hits and maybe even some misses

I just hope it all gets here before the apocolypse....


  1. Hahahaha the apocalypse.... You crack me up. yay for shopping!!!

  2. I'm the same way...I had to go shopping last week to revise my wardrobe. Either it was from when I was too skinny or too fat and now I'm stuck in the middle.
