Now I have the sleeves cuffed, plus my shoes kick butt.

For those who don't like plaid, I'm sorry for you. ;) I love plaid, dots, and can't see myself ever wearing just plain colors without accents. Professional or not, that just isn't my style.

Must have shoes!!!

And the sleeves look good cuffed.

You could put a little thin patent leather belt around that blazer to make it look like the one you liked the picture of from JCP.

I will have to buy one. I also have no belts that fit at all since my waist is umm almost 2 feet smaller than a few years ago.

I understand that too. I have a belt that was my hubby's that I started wearing not too long after surgery. I was on hole three then, I'm on hole 8 now. I've only got 1 more hole left! I want to find a webbed belt with grommeted holes all around it so I can wear it no matter what size I am.

OK, seriously lovin' the shoes. :) And I certainly like the sleeves cuffed.

You pull off plaid great, its just not MY personal fav. Now, give me dots and we're good to go! :)

I tried on both sizes of this jacket, but decided to go with large. I think a belt over it and the sleeves cuffed will make it look better.

I have a funky dress with dots that I'll have to get a photo of sometime.

Yes. They are the Tux brand. Not very comfortable though (i have the gel inserts) and they run large.

FYI you can smile AND be professional;) The shoes kick as and the jacket looks better cuffed. I agree with others that a thin belt would look good and I'm sure that you could find one for cheap at Ross. Hmmm I have a gift certificate for them and I'd love to shop with you again. Hey, do you want to see Beowulf?

I was cranky. I have a cold. I want to see The Golden Compass really badly, but not so much Beowulf, although, I am desperate to see a movie, so maybe it will do.

I want to go to the Cinderella play with you. What time is it? I have one other plan for that day.

OK, I bought the tickets, I hope you can go! It's a matinee at 2, we need to get there about 1:30 as the tickets are being held at will-call. I'll have Jessica and a friend of hers there because John's a boy and Lan convinced him it was too girly. *rolls eyes* Damn homo-phobic men!

Plaids rock! I went to Catholic school and I think I was one of the only girls that loved the plaids.

You look really good for professional. Where did you get the shoes??? They are gorgeous.

Shoes are from zappos.com. They are the tux brand. I warn you: They are very uncomfortable without arch support. Mine have gel inserts and are still not comfortable. They are hard as a rock. Also, the tux brand runs big.

I'll keep that in mind. I have a higher arch so it's hard to find comfortable heels that look good as well.

Where is that mall or shopping are in Bellevue you told me about? I also need to find a sharper image up there. Do you know if one is in the one in Bellevue?

I'm not sure. The mall I like in Bellevue is called Bellevue Square.

*having serious heart palpitations over shoes*
Would it piss you off if I totally bought those???
I am in striped-love....
though am scared to buy them for fear that they will not fit after surgery...
I'm seriosly suffering from major shoe envy...*sigh*

Recently-parted "friends" I had were/are like that, and I try not to be such a "copycat"! *lol*
But I suppose the mileage between us wouldn't make it such a big deal, eh? *lol*

I love the shoes & the jacket! I like plaid, though it remind me of field hockey in high school :)

Thanks! I feel like I could ref in these shoes, except I'd get run over due to my inability to run in them.

I have the same shoes! I bought them when I saw them at Junkman's Daughter in Atlanta, after I saw you wearing them in a picture!

Tux brand shoes are cute, but not the ultimate in comfort, that's for sure. :)
