If You're Stout...

I just love that ad; I love how honest vintage ads were. I have a few vintage patterns that describe themselves as figure flattering for the fuller figured women or as this ad puts it "styled to make you look slimmer."

I have been really anxious to wear my new shoes and my new bag, so I pulled this dress out of the closet and felt that they would coordinate will with one another. My mom and I headed over to JoAnn's for their labor day sale. I wasn't in the mood to mess much with my make-up or my hair, so please pardon both. At JoAnn's, I found some beautiful fabric for only $1 a yard. I also needed to get some chenille to make a replacement sash for a vintage chenille robe I found at the thrift store. I will post more about this later.

Just a short little outfit post today. Hope everyone had great Labor Days!
