hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. i'm currently recovering from an eight-mile run i did yesterday, but i'll share more about that later this week. with mini-she busy with school play rehearsals and track meets, i got to spend some QT with mini-he. we saw the movie the nut job, spent some time at the beach house, and watched a chinese lion dance at my friend's shop.
i usually steer clear of body conscious clothing or reserve them for days when i'm feeling "skinny" in the mid-section. but here's a few things that help me feel more comfortable in bodycons:
- big hair. the fullness balances out the skinniness
and draws attention upward.
- prints. busy patterns camouflage unsightly bulges. designs that give the illusion of skinny, like the triangular print
on this aztec bodycon, also help.
- a long necklace. helps to break-up all that material and draw some attention away from the mid-section.
how was your weekend?
feeding the lion dollar bills.
about the chinese lion dance: lion dance troupes visit shops of the chinese community and perform a traditional dance that is believed to bring good luck and fortune to the businesses. auspicious green vegetables are hung with a red envelope containing money, and in the traditional cai qing [literally meaning 'plucking the greens'], the lion eats the greens and spits it out, keeping the red envelope as a reward.
mini-he got to try on the lion's head!
dim sum for lunch after...
a few to try:
