fat guy in a little coat.

remember chris farley in tommy boy?
i always think of him in this scene whenever i put on something smallish. i actually gave this shrunken blazer to mini-she to use, but she gave it back, and i'm liking it again. i'm wearing it over one of my favorite dresses. i always feel comfortable when i'm wearing it...it's loose fitting but still has
a shapely bodice, it feels like a slip,
and has just enough lace and frills.

also been looking for an ipad case and can't believe how expensive they are. it's giving me an excuse to use this coach messenger bag that i received years ago to hold my (now outdated) macbook. it's a lot of bag for just the ipad,
but it works for now.

i'm off to mini-she's softball scrimmage, then having wine with the neighborhood ladies. have a wonderful weekend.

(gillie frilly dress via oomph (buy); blazer, max studio (similar);
bag, coach (gift)(similar))

have any ipad case recommendations?
what are you up to this weekend?

  1. I love this look. I don't think the small blazer looks too small at all :( I love the contrast between sweet and tough here.

    Ugh. I know what you mean about these iPad cases being so expensive. Any mac gadget cover costs an arm and a leg these days!

  7. I love the outfit! I think the shorter jacket looks perfect with the length of the dress! I thought the same thing when I got my ipad. I ended up finding an awesome faux leather case on Amazon for only $15, so I would recommend that website!

  8. I love the jacket! The outfit is great too and you have the best shoes. I am jealous.. I don't even have an ipad. I agree with Lisa (above) though-- check Amazon. I love Amazon and they do seem to have the best prices. Have a great weekend, girlie!

  19. I got Apples smart cover(in orange) and a Belkin back shield. Has been a lifesaver,with that combo you can throw the iPad in any case and not worry. I blogged about it last December, for some reason the link won't paste. Grrr. You look amazing!
