Ugh, looking at these pictures I'm a little self conscious of how skinny my lower arms and hands are getting. They look a tiny bit freakish to me, but I don't think anyone will notice. When I bought this sweater it would stay up at 3/4 length without my pushing it up so high, but now my arms are smaller. Other than that, I like this outfit. The pants fit well, the shoes match. I think the jewelry is subtle and professional. I think it is plain enough that the focus will be on my face and the presentation, which is the plan. Nothing that distracts from the topic.

Thank you! I must remember to smile (even if nerves take over).

Thank you! It was very affordable. In fact, the most expensive thing I have on is the bra, which is only because I'm in a hard to find size.

Nice outfit -it's a great color. Have you considered adding a jacket maybe? I'm a huge fan of them. A jacket makes me feel instantly competent. I have this one from Chicos that I love. I should phost that one myself.

If you don't have a black jacket - no worries, E&Y is UBER professional so I think in those terms. Any time I have an important meeting or something, I almost always wear a skirt or a dress with a jacket. I feel like I'm putting on my armor and preparing for battle. Think I'm going to start doing the hair up thing too and I absolutely MUST get new glasses next week. I've been driving blind for far too long.

I did consider wearing a jacket, but it's a more casual conference as guys wear khaki's and button down and never suits or jackets.

That is a very nice business outfit. You look good. Your arms do not look freakish.

Back in the 80's we had these little stretchy braclet like things that you used to keep your shirt sleeves pushed up. I can't seem to find them nowadays.

Thank you! I think I'll be comfortable enough in this sweater. I need to not obsess about my arms. Yes, they are a bit small, but so is the rest of me. Besides, I'm lifting weights, there isn't anything else I can do about it.

Very cute! If it was me I'd add a skinny black patent belt at the natural waist because I like to be dripping in as many accessories as possible at all times. Sure you might point and laugh and say I look like a gypsy, but if I were ever forced to play a game of strip poker, I would win even if I lost!

I have that belt, but you can't see it under the sweater. Are you thinking tuck IN the sweater?

No, I'd put it over the sweater since you can't really see the waist of the pants anyway.

Ahhh! I'll try that! Sounds good. Plus the silver buckle on it is a brushed chrome, so it would look good depending on if the sweater lies relatively flat.

Hehe, now we just need to talk about adding some scarves and bangle bracelets...

Ha! Well, I don't have an appropriate silver bangle bracelet, but if I did I'd be on it.

That's the beauty of being a gypsy - just steal it.

The gypsies I knew in real life didn't steal, but they did keep sweaty dollar bills in their bra which they would grope themselves and pull out in public. It was sort of awesome. Nice wallet, ladies.

Maybe if the belt doesn't work a spiffy brooch or something?

My wrist is 5-7/8" around (2" wide when look down on it.)

I still weigh 188 pounds. I don't know how much smaller than they will get!

Just makes me realize that I am PETITE in there. I never thought I was a tiny person under my fat, but I AM.

I didn't think I was at all tiny, but at 5'8" and 135ish I'm a size 4 pants and only a size 4 ring. That is small framed. I always thought I was a "bigger framed person". Totally not true.

OMG, I just measured and my wrist is 4.5 inches around.

WOW... that *is* tiny. I don't think mine will get all that much smaller. I think 5.25 at the smallest, but I might not loose any more at all there, since the wrist doesn't usually fluctuate all that dramatically (usually) with weight changes. I think I was 6.5 or 6.75 at nearly 400 lbs.

I didn't think so either, but I used to need plus-sized bracelets!

This is a very lovely outfit- so professional and pretty! Perfect choice :)

I also vote for a phost of the Halloween costume!

ha! Thanks. I'm thinking about getting some sort of nude body suit or fake boobie costume thing so it isn't the "real me" showing out the front of that top. Maybe then a phost? It's still pretty stitch poppingly painted on looking. My sister is bringing me a red feather boa to make it MORE classy. That's how indecent it is. I think Craig will have to take a photo. :)

The dry run was awesome yesterday. People loved it and told me they were proud but they gave me a few fun ideas to polish it even more.

Thanks! The outfit is more simple than I usually wear, but I think that adding more color would be distracting on the video since they are broadcasting it.

You look great! So professional.

Your arms look fine, I think you are seeing things we would never look at.

As a former certified fit specialist in lingerie, I want to take you bra shopping!!!! 8 out of 10 women wear the wrong size bra.

You are beautiful, Lanette.

Thanks! I did get a bra fitting from Victoria's Secret. The issue isn't the bra, it's the quad boob due to loose skin?
