It's cute right? Black with black lace overlay, lace sleeves and just enough shape that I don't look like I'm wearing a black potato sack.
It's got a 60's Mad Men feel that I can't wait to accessorize up for the DIVAS concert this Saturday.
Wait... you don't know what DIVAS is? Go here and buy a ticket: H.O.P.E.
Now... back to the dress. It fits, could be a bit looser and my legs could be a bit more toned to make the mini-aspect of it look better. So I'm giving myself a project. Let's put all those "Lose Weight Fast" articles to the test and see if I can look a little sleeker while schmoozing.
So I read up and these are the general notes on dropping a few pounds quickly...
1- cut carbs: recommended for a short time, not a lifestyle change. I'm already off white flour and bread... so no rice or quinoa pasta this week.
2- Limit salt... I should probably be doing this all the time. I don't know if I eat lots of salty foods or my body is just sensitive to it, but I can feel the salt bloat as soon as I eat something salty.
3- No Soda- Been there, done that
4- Up the cardio. Hit the gym today for 45 on the elliptical... treadmill tomorrow... basically I'm planning at least 45 of cardio every day till show time.
Let's see if I can get model-hot by Saturday.
Also, who knows what kind of shoes I wear with my Joan Holloway dress?
