Haven't been weighing myself lately. Will start doing that next week. Also, I'll post some progress photos. Going to bed now to nurse my cold.

T-Shirts for Sale!

I mentioned before that I was working on silk screening t-shirts by hand as my summer project. I really enjoy doing it. It's relaxing, and I get to work with inks.

I put some of the shirts for sale in my Etsy store. I have sizes S-XXL available. If someone would like a larger shirt or custom color combination, hit me up on twitter.

I'm going to make another design this weekend, and I'll put them up when they're finished.

Size Chart:

S: Chest 34"-36" Waist 30"-32"

M: Chest 38"-40" Waist 32"-33"

Plus Size Fashion Review: Odelia Dress

I blogged about my shopping planning, but never reported back what I got and what I liked. So I thought I'd pick an item that I thought was kind of a gamble and share my shopping experienced.

One of my friends got married yesterday, and the wedding was picnic casual. After getting inspired by this post from The Pretty Pear, I ordered the Odelia Dress in black and white from B & Lu:

Here's me wearing it at the wedding:

I love it so much. It's light and airy, and has a great shape. I'm 5'10" so I knew it would be shorter on me. Leggings did the trick. I felt stylish, but not fussy.

Cost: $54
Fit: True to the size chart
Shipping: $9 Came a few days earlier than expected.
Compliments: Felt comfortable all day long, even on a very long day with a 2 hour car ride, a wedding reception and picnic, and to a club. Stayed cute and didn't lose it's shape by the end of the day. Lightweight material is sturdy.
Complaints: threads are pulling through the button holes. I will need to push them through and cut them off.
