Luckily for me, I was keeping an eye on the 511 website, and I chilled out in East Bay all day and went to dinner. But I look forward to blogging all week long long long long long, so here are two blurry photos of me after I drove home at 11pm.
That's right, I found a jacket with sleeves the correct length that doesn't garrote me under the arms! My secret? Husky kid clothes.
The best fit for adult me off the rack has always been XXL boys' clothing. Jackets and trousers, both. I'm going to use the line "I have the physical dimensions of a fat male child" to make someone go away someday, just you wait.*
It looks like a bustier, but it's actually a stretchy tank top! The extra seams give it a little reinforcement, and it's form-fitting, but there's no boning/underwire, and it's smocked in the back, so super stretchy and flexible. AND there are built in pads in the bust. So comfortable! I love it so much.
The description called it leopard print. I never thought I'd own anything leopard print before, but it is a blue-grey and very subtle, I think. So this is subtle blue leopard, coincidentally the name of my new fictional band. I think we'll play lounge music covers of trance songs and have a rivalry with my other fictional band, Husky Boy Dimensions.
* This is not me body-slamming, this is me thinking this is a fantastic line.
