That jumpsuit makes you look tall! And I envy your itty bitty waist. 💕

I too have been shopping online more than I should. I am going to blame being quarantined with Covid😂

Edited to add: I have heard online shopping debt is a known side effect of Covid infection. 😳

I know it's not sexy but I was feeling pretty skinny in this photo after losing almost 100 lbs. That sweatshirt used to be so tight that I could rival santa :-). I also could lay down easily with my Lolli and hug her feeling 'normal'. I could never do that with her before.

Headed to the seamstress today with a dozen pieces of clothes.

Welcome @ichabodny & @arrington0711. Hope to see you here a lot.

That jumpsuit is lovely MsSss. Super flattering. Have any of your other purchases arrived yet? We need pxts.

Love the green dress bayougirlMrsS. Perfect for Christmas. Did you get the blouse in green too? The pink would be pretty too. Would match my new shoes tee hee.

My mum is buying everyone jeans for Christmas but said she’d give me money to buy my own cause I was too fussy! She says fussy I say exacting standards 😂. I bought these. You know I like a wide leg. They called them barrel legs - no reflection on the shape of my legs I hope. We called them cigar legs back in the day.

I have a dress in that exact shade of green and shiny material as the first link...so thumbs up on the colour, lol. I think it would look great with a some matte bottoms :)

That faux wrap dress is gorgeous! I am now contemplating getting the short-sleeve version in grey! Does it have a back slit?

Pictures with it on PLEASE!

The colour of those shoes make me want to eat them. Love it.

I wanna see you in the jeans too, please! I have tried on many a wide leg jean and I have not yet found one that DOES NOT make me look short. Are those jeans flowy or stiff? Inquiring minds want to know.

P.S. I did get a couple more items delivered (clothing-wise) but they aren't so very flattering and are likely going back (one of my bad habits is not returning mail-delivered stuff that I don't like out of sheer laziness - or distaste for return shipping costs - and I end up giving them away or donating it. sigh.)

But yeah, modelled pictures, please!

Mum told me I have to wrap the jeans up to open them at Christmas with the rest of the family. So not only did I have to buy my Christmas present from her, I have to wrap it too. 😂 We’re supposed to be having a heat wave for the next few days but only about 33 degrees C here (40 an hour away where Mum lives). Don’t think I’ll be wearing jeans soon even with air conditioning. Lol!

Aaah, the annoyance of returning unsuitable online purchases. It’s one of the reasons I don’t but much online. I tried on a couple of 7/8 length pants yesterday but on my short legs they flapped around my ankles looking very unflattering. Too short to be long & too long to be short. But I could just put them back on the rack. Easy.

Usually I hem my pants long so they cover my high heels to pretend my legs are 3 inches longer & more in proportion with the rest of my body. Oh, to be 5’6”. Sigh!

it has no slit at all.... I got the small and think it would fit you perfectly. I wouldn't get the ex small or the med. It is as pictured. I will put it on tonight and send a picture. it's well made and a beautiful shade of emerald green. Tim really liked it.

The pains of online shopping from Canada! Was all set to buy the dress in short sleeve Grey, but the shipping costs and import fees just turned me off. Amazon canada has it too, also with undesirable shipping (i HATE paying shipping costs!!! It’s a matter of principle!!!) and import fees.

Sigh.

So I shall live vicariously through you.

Still waiting for that pic! Hubba hubba...
