For My Fellow Flabby-Armed Friends...

Ladies, are you embarrassed by your "batwings?" When you wave goodbye, do your arms keep waving long after the person is gone? Well, I am happy to tell you that help is on the way...Kohls is now carrying "elbow length sleeves" in many of their tops! We can now contain our upper arms and still look stylish, without sweating to death while wearing a 3/4 sleeve in the middle of summer (please tell me I'm not the only one who has done this)!

Check out these cute tops:

My favorite color!

Love this one, too!

Does this mean that clothing designers have finally realized that not everybody has perfect upper arms anymore? I'm sure that other stores are probably carrying "elbow length sleeves" as well - I just happened to notice these in the Sunday Kohls ad in my newspaper. Any case, I'm glad to see them. Believe me, I need this style! Maybe someday, when I lose all the weight I need, and with the strength-training workouts, my arms might be short-sleeve ready (I don't even dare hope for sleeveless), but in the meantime, woohoo...I'll be checking out Kohls very soon!


  1. oh how exciting!!! I love kohls and both of those tops are adorable!!!

  2. I don't know where my comment went......

    Anyway, I love Kohls! Planning on doing Easter clothes shopping there ;)

  3. Hooray for the 3/4 sleeve!!!!!!!

  4. Yup, I'd be one of those fellow flabby-armed friends! Love the tops - very cute.

    Re your question on my blog . . . I'm 5'8" . . . and thanks for the kind words!

  5. those are CUTECUTE PERIOD.

    love they dont look...matronly? like when I was in highschool and would shop for petite jeans (INSEAM NOT WAIST ETC but thats a blogpost :)) and theyd all be NERDY and pleated etc as if just because I was a tad short & stumpy I didnt wanna be stylin!

    love the shirts.

  6. I don't know... According to Shine/Yahoo!, you can get Michelle Obama-like arms in 5 minutes a day ;)
