Looking good being green

I love Sophie Ulianos suggestions on how to live green, yet look fabulous ! My diet has always been a struggle when it comes to maintenance... meaning I love to eat, as long as I don´t have do the cooking myself... Mind you, I love to cook for others ! I´m not a vegetarian, but I only eat fish and fowl and I try to buy as much organic products as I can.

The day before yesterday was spent with my brother and his family. They live out in the countryside and he is a vegetarian chef, although the dinner that was served was done by my delightful sister-in-law. And the food !!! Green, lean and utterly delicious ! 

Even though I am on the track of losing weight ( ah, the lure of those petite vintage dresses ;) I´m afraid I indulged in a rather large portion of French chocolate cake simply because it was made by my sweet niece ! I simply imagined myself being the very pretty Fleur de Guerre eating yet another sumptuous afternoon tea somewhere in Old England. Then again, with a figure like hers she can have all the tea & cakes she wants, no ? ;)

I really enjoy looking at for instance, Immodesty Blaize and her amazingly beautiful full figured burlesque body twisting and turning in my YouTube window, but full figured truly works best when you have a full figured bust to go along with it ( which I do not... ) I´m only 161 cm and currently weigh ... 72 kg ( how did THAT happen ! ;) ...

I figured that losing a few kg would be good for my health, my self esteem, my vintage wardrobe aspirations and that very desired object awaiting me when I have done so - a corset from What Katie did !

PS. To those of you who have added me to you blog list, I feel honored, excited and very inspired that others would find my vintage adventures interesting enough to follow ! Thank you ! :D
