Passion for Purple

Posted on: December 3, 2013

Like any Girly- Girl,  I have a love of the Color Purple

So I couldn’t resist this wonderful vest at Goodwill for just $4.99


I think my love of vests is finally growing on my husband, as upon seeing this outfit, he immediately complimented the purple vest and embroidery… perhaps this slimmer version is more appealing than the puffer vests…


This white sweater is a belated birthday present from my dear friend and thrifting buddy.., It was only $4.99 at Goodwill and is a brand new with tags priced at $68.00 for this lovely Ralph Lauren cable knit. 


The pants are actually Diane Gilman jeggings that I’ve had and now fit into….I actually measured my hips after seeing these photos and I lost an extra 1/2 and inch from the recent 5lb weight loss… I’ve lost 6 total inches off my hips!

Dear Readers, I am suppose to make Lifetime at my WW meeting Tuesday, but not sure if that will happen. Being sick with that cold for a week and Thanksgiving and no exercize resulted in a wegith gain. Monday morning I was one pound away from goal, so will have to wait to morning to see how I did today!  Those before and after pictures are depending on  my success… 


I am grateful that my youngest did a great job today with meeting the homeschooling goals.

I am grateful that we took a nice break and put the star and lights on the outdoor live tree my husband brought home and put in the front yard… He came home tonight and finished it up with even more lights…(pictures below) 

I am grateful for such beautiful weather today for our lighting fun…

I am grateful that despite awful fog this morning that my teenager made it to school ok and was not involved in the 6 car pile up near his school…

I am grateful that I took a short nap late this afternoon, after waking up too early this morning…

OK, you ladies are making want a vest now. I love this one! I don’t like those big puffer vests (I feel constricted) but this kind is perfect. Love the look.


Love this outfit. It’s very flattering on you. Good luck with WW.

That’s a great vest!

One pound could just be water weight. Hope your weigh in goes well!

Congrats on reaching your weight goal. I am working on losing some body fat and not focus on the weight …it’s always a struggle but I just have to give it a try everyday.

I really like this purple vest with the embroidery – it’s so different and on trend. I was just at Goodwill today and I was way too overwhelmed to buy anything.


Thank you and you are right about the body fat being a good focus. I am just as proud of the 17 lbs lost through exercize as I amd the additional 33 lost through dietary changes…
