...I'm VOLUNTARILY wearing a dress! It was sitting in my closet, taunting me. Because I've owned it for several years, and this is my first time actually wearing it. I've considered cutting it to shirt-length, so I would get more wear out of it, but every woman needs a 3-season dark dress.
Those things below my legs... um... they're not boots:
That's what my legs actually look like. Hence, no dresses or skirts since August, when I had to wear some to a wedding. So with Baby Sis's credo "F the cankles" in mind... I actually left the house with lower legs exposed!
I started off the day with what were supposed to be opaque tights. Instead, I had issues with the color pooling around the mutant lumps and bumps, as seen above. A quick stop at Fashion Bug on my way back to the office from court, and I replaced the tights with leggings and knee socks (inspired by Freeda):
No more pooling, and my thighs aren't chafing anymore. Much better... this is why I wear pants! I do really like this print, though:
My attempt at a pseudo-obi look. I tied the wrap ties in place (with help from safety pins), the belt then put between two ties. Did I get the desired effect?
And I wore my fluffy ruffle tee underneath for warmth and texture:
Of course, no time for a blowdry:
But there's always time for earrings:
Top: VanHusen outlet
Dress: Alfani Woman from Macy's
Belt: DKNY via TJ Maxx
Leggings and socks: Fashion Bug
Earrings: Lia Sophia
FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.
DJ/Radio Producer-turned-Lawyer attempts to dress like a grown-up. Sometimes I comically fail. And I occasionally post fun stuff, like music videos, book-club reviews, or photos of beauty or oddity.
