How I Spent My Christmas Vacation

I hope everyone had a great Christmas!  I sure did.  Lots of family, board games, movies, and of course: food!  I'm not keeping up with my outfit posts while I'm home because I'm busy spending time with family and friends.  I'll get back to the grind later this week.

I just wanted to share an email I got from a new reader this week.  It made me smile!  I started this blog for fun, but it has turned into a lot more.   

OMG, I just stumbled across your blog (thank HEAVENS)!!!!! Let me say how completely elated and inspired I am that finally a woman with REAL style, REAL curves, and a REALISTIC budget has a blog! I am a 12 (which is new for me since an 8 is what I've always been) and I could never find anything that fit without looking frumpy. You have renewed my faith in fashion!!! I love that you show brands I love (Banana Republic, Jessica Simpson, LOFT, etc...) and how the clothes fit and different ways they can be pieced together. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!! It may not seem like a lot but trust me when I say you have changed my views on fashion!!

A big thank you to all the In Kinsey's Closet readers!  You all mean so much, and I am happy that you take time out of your day to drop in!

What an awesome email! I agree though it's great to be able to relate to other women who have a realistic view on everything...body, budget and style.

I totally agree with the reader that sent that email! I'm about a size 8 or 10 (sometimes a 12!) and with a larger chest I can't always pull off the trends that itty, bitty woman can. I really love to see the classy looks you put together!
