I Don't Play The Ukulele

this shot was almost too lame NOT to share!

I can't play the ukulele... but I can use one as a prop in a fashion post like nobody's business!

This particular ukulele was gifted to my husband from his boss... it's a vintage Silvertone, circa the early 50's.  It's pretty special.  Even if I can't play it.

As I mentioned last week, I'm thinking of hosting a weekly (or bi-weekly) linkup that will revolve around ''celebrating our size.''  So far, what I'm thinking... is that we link up any fashion-related post, and share our sizes, share what works best on our sizes and where we can shop for the clothes that fit our bodies best... whether you're a size 2 or 22... it will be a fun place for women to celebrate the bodies they were given!   Sound fun?  Still working on the kinks, so keep your eyes peeled!!

I threw this outfit together in a bit of a mad dash, but I like it!
The lace top is Joe Fresh (clearance, $5) and is an XL.
The bright pink corduroy skirt & polka dot tights are both from Old Navy, size L.
The shoes are my favorite black pumps, Steve Madden.
I managed to find some cute pink studs that matched, but looking back at these photos, I wish I would have had time to grab a ring or a cute necklace too!  Oh well, maybe next time!

Be sure to come back tomorrow, I'm going to be answering YOUR questions!
