tights- we love colors
top- charlotte russe
Not my birthday, it's Girl Roomie's! I'm excited anyway. We celebrated by getting brunch earlier today and then Coldstone just now. Her boyfriend, Boy Roomie, had the day off from work, too, so we all went out on these little excursions together and it was like a little family holiday. Aw.
Before anyone asks, yes, I am wearing both the same socks and shorts from yesterday. However, I would like to make the argument that two entirely different pairs of tights stood between them and my body on each occasion, and so it's practically as if I never wore them at all.
I finally spotlighted my fabulous fur. It was $15 at the thrift store in my hometown. My dad and his friends were doing some handyman-type stuff in there (fixing a sink, actually), and his freind spotted this coat and said, "Hey, Elle's Dad, wouldn't Elle love this?" So Dad bought it for me. I'm obsessed. It's so soft and honestly I think it's the warmest thing I own.
(I don't want to beat a dead horse, but I know that fur is a controversial issue and all I am going to say is this: I would never buy new fur. But this fur is vintage, so I feel as if it was acceptable for me to buy. My mother was worried that I would attract hordes of people flinging red paint everywhere I went, but as of yet I seem to be safe. Knock on wood.)
The only problem with the coat is some tears in the shoulders. A good furrier ought to be able to sort that out, but I think I need to worry about finding a job before I can focus on finding a furrier. Also, the cut of the coat makes it a little hard to lift my arms, which makes tasks such as driving, scraping off my car, etc., kind of difficult. My bestie Cait says that this is because chicks with fur coats usually have minions to lift their arms for them.
PS- Boyf had a lot of coffee today. He has a lot of coffee every day, but tonight when he was taking my picture he kept shouting commands at me. Commands like, "Show me bewildered fishwife! Anxious bank teller! Now you're a patient longshoreman! Show me aircraft controller with a head cold!" So excuse me if I look a little bewildered, anxious, patient, fluey, etc. I was only following orders.
