Vintage-Inspired Must Haves!

I have become totally obsessed with Mad Men, and thus I've been itching to get my hands on some lovely vintage pieces so I can rock it like Joan and Peggy. Of course, excellent plus-size vintage can be hard to come by, so I'm thinking of going in a different direction.

The vintage-inspired selection is breath taking. How, after two solid years as a plus-size internet shopping fiend, have I not discovered this website before?

I've got my eye on three, and, while they are pricier, they are simply fantastic. I don't know which one (or two) I'll end up buying this fall, but here are the three I will be drooling over until my October bonus check clears.

These can be paired with sweaters for work or are perfect for going out as-is. They come in sizes up to 3x, but that means different things for different dresses. Fortunately, each dress lists measurements for each sizes. And since I can't afford any of them for two months, I have plenty of time to drool over each dress on the website while I make up my mind.

Drank too much in New York this weekend (and ate too much pizza), but this week was still an awesome week. I've been cooking a lot of new recipes, and I've got photos to share whenever I get the photos uploaded.

To the numbers:

Starting Weight (5/13/09): 320 lbs.
Last Week's Weight: 301.8 lbs.
Current Weight: 299.8 lbs.

Weight lost this week: 2 lbs.
Total Weight Lost: 20.2 lbs.

How stoked am I? Twenty pounds gone and the first digit on the scale was a 2! This has been my favorite weigh-in day by far.
