Everyday Paradise Shopping SWAP

What is it with the shoes?

Am I that skinny? I stepped on the scale after dinner, 110 lbs. My lowest is 109 (in the last 20 years) and that was last month. But that still doesn’t explain how an 8N from three years ago in my collection fits fine, but an 8N now is swimmingly wide! The cork wedges are going back….sigh, my fourth pair back. Hubs didn’t understand “why not go try them on at the store?” because no one carries 8N in the store!! Anyway, it is a drag. I did put cute pink SummerSoles suede insoles in my white sandals in my collection. They’ll be great with the HotPatterns Sugar Babe pants in linen this summer. And they didn’t cost me a dime (this year anyway.)

I also bought some thread and the steam a seam that I needed to finish the Hot Patterns Sugar Babe tube top from my MINI SWAP for this spring. We have til July, but it’s halfway to June now. And I still have the Burda shirtdress in denim to tackle (slooowly, see my previous post.)

I’m itching for a new handbag for summer. I’ve got to go stash diving and see what I have. I think I’ll make a commercial pattern – sometimes that’s easier and gets me over the hump of having to design something. Right now, I need easy.
