I was preparing a post for tonight and realized what time it was and rather than rushing through it, I thought it best to wait until tomorrow when I'll actually have some time to figure out what I'm trying to do. 

Today was a good day though.  I wore a really nice long black skirt (almost to my ankles ... rather different from my usual attire) which I haven't been able to get into for the past 2 or 3 years and a yellow, black, white and tan coloured top.  The top is actually really nice except for one thing.  I bought it at Addition Elle 'cause they seem to be the only ones who make an empire waisted top that fits me properly because of the girls.  The problem is they seem to think that if you're plus size and big busted, your midriff/tummy area is going to be bigger than your bust.   I know there are woman who have that problem but they usually have smaller bustlines.  The back of my top was shorter than the front 'casue they built in the extra fabric to allow for a much bigger belly.  The top is starting to look a little worn anyway but it's just to darned pretty.

Ooo!  It looks like a girlfriend of mine and I are going shopping on Saturday for a bit.  Look our Spring (shoes).  I LOVE THEIR SHOES!!!!  And I think I might actually break down and buy a pair of Spanx.  I'm still not convinced.  My girlfriend did (I'm not sure about now) wear them and swears by them.  I'll try them on and see what I think.  I mean hell, if I can pay $180 for a bra, I think $50 for my lower half is ok.

You know, women really are all about illusion ... between the makeup, hair, undergarments, outer garments, shoes, jewellery, etc.  I sometimes wonder who we do all this for ... ourselves, men or other women.  I guess it depends on the day.

Anyway, I'm about to nod off so I shall bid you all adieu for tonight.  Stay tuned for the Story of Belle, coming to a computer near you in the next couple of days.  Yes, I'm tired.  Night, night.


  1. Oh I hear ya on the being tired. I'm exhausted today. hehe. Congrats on fitting into your skirt!! I love fitting into things that didn't fit the same. It definitely depends on the day how I do my illusion. hehe. Have fun shopping!! If you buy a spanx let me know, I'd really like a your opinion. =) Sleep good! Nighty!

  2. Totally fine with your late reply/comment. It's cool. It's really great that I see you there on my blog. Awesome place you got here. Keep it up and have fun!

    Cheers to you! :)

  3. Yay! Shoe shopping! Lucky, lucky! I have to save up a few more paychecks before I can do any shopping. But suddenly that doesn't seem so far away now. :)

    That's funny (and so true) about women working so hard to be illusions. I always wonder what guys think when they meet a girl with long hair, perfect skin, and big boobs, only to wake up the next morning to realize she had hair extensions, tons of make up on, and a giant padded push up bra! Haha!

  4. So true about illusion, darling!


  5. Ooh, $230 for undergarments sounds like a lot to me, but then again, they do say you have to get the foundation right before anything else will work. Have a fun shopping trip!

  6. I've been on the computer sidelines while my 14 year old teenzilla stepdaughter stayed with us. She is now back at her mom's and I get to check in with everyone and actually do a post on my own blog!

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
