Project Ramona: $1 Skirt
Posted 9/12/2012 2:49:00 PM

What size do you wear?  If you ask my aunties they'll say "fit `ems."  We'll wear any size that fits.  Some folks get turned off by the number sewn into the collar, but I'll try on anything on the clearance rack that looks like it'll work.  Heck, it's probably ON the clearance rack because the sizing is off.   My fit `ems usually come with large sizes.  Most folks who wear an 18 will avoid a dress or shirt with a 3X label, but not me.  My new size has opened up a whole new world of fit `ems.  The $6.99 dress I wore today from Ross Dress for Less was a size 4 (I'm really an 8).  The $1 striped skirt I found on the clearance rack at a JCP store in Philly is an extra-small.  I've become the chick picking from the 4-12 section of the rack instead of the 14-24 section.
Since my gastric bypass surgery at Catawba Valley Medical Center, I've had to adjust my bargain hunting a bit.  Some stores wind up with lots of XL and plus size clearance items while others have more Small and XS sizes to offer.  Here's a tip, shoppers.  Looking for bargains in smaller sizes?  I find the best deals in Gastonia and North Charlotte.  Need XL or higher? South Charlotte has more to offer.   SHOP ON!!!!!

    The movement of the LM1 is where MB&F wants you to focus most of your attention. The design of the movement was conceived by master watch movement architect Jean-François Mojon and his team panerai replica watches . He worked closely with MB&F to bring to life the idea of having a large prominent balance wheel inspired by the golden-age of pocket watches. The balance wheel not only looks unique but is large being 14mm wide and running at the hypnotic rate of 18,000 bph replica omega watches uk . This slower rate allows you to really see it moving more clearly and appreciate the movement of the wheel on your wrist at all time. The balance wheel and escapement mechanism are mounted on two arches and use a Breguet overcoil and special regulation screws unique to the LM1 watch. replica tag heuer watches replica rolex watches While a different concept all together, the case and balance wheel design of the LM1 remind me of Bernhard Lederer's Gagarin Tourbillon watch. The movement itself is very interesting and actually produced and finished by another very admired watch industry talent: Kari Voutilainen.
