Fabulously Out There

Putting the Fabulous in East Boston since 2005 -I have written about my life, my dog(s), my sex life, my my love life, my dating, my non-dating, my job searches and my soul searches since 2005. This is my space and my opinions. I use my space freely and voice my opinions freely. I call my readers possums, cause it's a cute word, not because they aren't fabulous and stunningly handsome and beautiful. :)

And it goes on… September 28, 2009

Last night I went to Ecco’s for a few copas de vino tinto and found a new wine I adore. Who would have thought. I thought I was forever in Malbec territory, but I was proven wrong. The Italians do make good red wine and this red is competing with my Argentinian wine.

As I was getting ready debating what to wear, I pulled out a pair of Banana Republic jeans that I hadn’t touched for 3 months or so. I figured that it would be  a disaster putting them on since I had been wearing my fat jeans for, uhm, 3 months?

Voila. Fit perfectly with a bit room to spare.

WTF, body image. Seriously. The Banana jeans aren’t my skinny jeans. My skinny jeans are my leather pants and frankly, I am getting to the point to retire them. I mean, they were bought in the “I am getting a divorce and working out cause that’s the only way I can keep sane and I am not really eating so fuck it all” phase. Not sure why in my mind I have the expectation to properly wear them again. But it seems once a year a do put them on and they fit – for a few weeks. Clearly not my “happy weight”. More of my “stressed out” weight leather pants.

Anyway. So I am totally wearing my Banana Republic Jeans to work today with a funky colorful coat.

It’s a grey and a bit of a rain stormy day in Boston. I got up this morning, walked out of my building, looked at the skyline and the skyline of Boston looked like painted in watercolors. Kind of beautiful.  I don’t think I am always open to see that type of beauty. Thanks, Universe for reminding me ;)

I have one more car load of stuff at the old place. Soon I will take some great photos of my new space and show it off. :) I am so proud. This feels so much like home already.

    Wow, jeans to work! So proud of you! Glad you feel that, at this stage of your life, you can leave the leather pants behind.
