Betty or Wilma?

I can't help but feel like Wilma or Betty from the Flintstones in this dress...which means I LOVE IT! I always loved how chic and form fitting their outfits were. Is it just me? I got this dress from the ASOS Africa line. I usually am attracted to ethnic prints and this was right up my alley. It's ethnic with a modern silhouette. I've had it for a minute. I'll be honest. It was a little snug on the jelly but I recently lost 10 lbs so I decided to see if the jelly was ready! It's ready! I love it!
I'm wearing it with Aldo Shoes and a F21 necklace/earrings. I've had that orange bag for years. I got it at a boutique in Philly when I went to visit my cousin. I am pretty sure this dress will be in heavy rotation this summer. I'm wearing heels here but I can easily take off the jewelry, throw on a belt and sandals and go to a festival or something.
It's a little on the short side but a little leg never killed anybody:)
In other news, for some reason I am thrown off this week. All day yesterday, I thought it was today. (Did I confuse you yet). I thought yesterday was Wednesday when it really was Tuesday. I even missed my favorite Tuesday shows!!! UGH!!!! I was so mad at myself! Then fast forward to today and I did the same thing. Really Reiko? Really?


So who do you think? Am I more like Wilma or Betty?



And for further randomness...You should know that I am obsessed with the song Soul Sista by Train. I sing it really loud every single time I hear it!



If you are wondering how I am losing the weight...I joined Weight Watchers and I work out whenever I can. But mostly it's due to this class. This is my actual Zumba teacher and those are the actual songs and dances we do:) I'm not in the video...trust me that would be a travesty...but I love my ZUMBA CLASS and teacher!




Yes, I get down like that!
And trust me, we get alot more grimey than this. Karen has us working it out! She has this same level of energy every single time. The above video is my favorite routine cause I get to wind it like that long hair Asian woman on Soul Train:) My buddy Ro usually has to convince me not to jump off the roof before the class is over!

You are much jazzier than Betty or Wilma. That dress is all that and then when you turn around - bam, back out. Subtle surprises are so nice.

I LOVE this dress! I never would have thought of the Flinstones if you hadn't mentioned it, maybe next time you should wear a bone in your hair ala Pebbles! Congrats on the 10 lb weight loss! Keep posting about it, it will keep the rest of us motivated too!

Fantastic dress! You look great, I love the cut out in the back. I went to the website and checked out their stuff, really nice. I especially love the bikini, maybe by summer 2011 my body will be ready for that.

As for Wilma or Betty, I always thought Wilma wasabit boring so BETTY all the way!

MissHaneefa said...

P.S. Who takes all the pics?

Cograts on the weight loss!! I just loss like 12 myself and am so happy! I do have a few more to go though. Anywho, I'm not really into prints, but I really like this one. I love the fit on you and I love the back!! SEXY!! I say Betty!!!

Marsha (BrownFace) said...

Ummmm, I meant to say I'm not really attracted to ethnic prints...lol For my clothing, that is. I LOVE colors, plaids, florals, anything multi-colored.

Ro said...

Hey there - thanks for your sweet comment! I think I have only mentioned in bits and pieces how I ended up in Greece ... basically at 30 I quit my job (2008), when to Greece for a few weeks that summer to decompress before I returned to home to start my new career .. then I met my husband ... I ended up staying to be with him for about four months, finally went back to the states to pack and say goodbyes and them moved to Greece that March (in 2009). We were married in July of last year. It all happened SO FAST!
