Outfit the First:
This is what I wore yesterday when no one was home to take a picture of me. The Boyf said, "Have Etta take a picture of you!" Silly Boyf. Doesn't he know that pookumses don't have opposable thumbs?
I think it's official; those are my favorite tights. I have been coveting everything lace lately. Especially black lace. I'm just a little irritated that the picture didn't adequately show of the ruched texture of my black top. I was so impressed with myself for combining two so different textures in one outfit. So you'll just have to take my word for it.
Dad really hates the first picture of Etta because he says the way she's showing off her pink belly is "so unladylike. Can we get some makeup to cover that up?" And then my mother says, "Gregory we are not buying makeup for a dog." And then Dad says, "But, Meg! What about her dignity?" And then I say, "Guys, can we please just take this picture so I can go blog it because I am obsessed with my blog? Kthx."
Outfit the Second
top- the gap
I love this outfit. Love love love. I had no idea what to wear today. I thought of what I haven't worn much yet and pulled out this purple tee. Then I combined it with the red mini, because I love red and purple together. I'm like one of those hat ladies. I can't wait to get old. I'll be able to mix my fave color combo all the time and wear obnoxious accessories and say whatever I want and no one will be able to tell me not to because I'll whack them with my cane. Yes.
Anyway, I instantly went for these tights because I thought, "What matches with red and purple?" and the answer of course was Big bright flowers on a white field! So, wham. And then I added boots to toughen it up slightly because my gold flats would have been too girly.
I didn't even look in the mirror to see if this looked okay. I usually don't. I come up with something that executes well in my head and then I put it on and take it on faith that it looks totally killer. Call it supreme confidence, call it silliness, I call it dumb luck, especially today. There are so many ways this could have gone wrong.
The second picture is me saying, "I don't know how to pose next!" In response to that, Dad got down on the ground and took a weird angle shot. He's fantastic.
My mom is making pulled pork for dinner. With chocolate cake. Excuse me while I go salivate for the next six hours. I have a day off today. I got all my Christmas shopping done last night. I have twenty-five days before I get to quit my job. Life is pretty freaking fantastic.
PS- TOMORROW IS MY LAST OUTFIT.
