my Beignet skirt, which still ended up swimming around my hips. I cut a size 0, grading up to a 4 at the waist.

this dress, just because. I have my work Christmas party tonight, so I think I'll wear this. I have so many dressed to wear, but these peeps are used to seeing me wear daggy black pants and a polyester shirt, so I don't want to shock them with too much of a wardrobe change.
