Last Tuesday was errand day. I had to get some recall work done on my car, then stop into the Bon Ton to re-buy a top I just bought the day before... using a coupon given to me that would make it half off! Yep, I do stuff like that... I can make Abe Lincoln's face scream, I pinch so hard!
And least the pillars have mirrors for blog shots. Clever idea!
Does the elastic on the waist emphasize my pooch? I'm still playing around with styling this one... any ideas? I just felt dowdy, which is tragic given the pretty blue of the top.
And that bra is pretty shot... I guess I can only wear it with certain tops. Not including this one!
I'm trying out this pair of pull-on pants that have been sitting in the back of my closet for ages. They are a more tapered leg style than I normally wear, but I thought I would try to treat them like leggings. Since I would not wear actual leggings given my legs' odd shape.
I was in a rush, so I grabbed some inoffensive earrings:
And comfy shoes for walking around:
I tried the pants out again on Friday, when visiting a friend in the hospital. She had her thyroid, nodules, and goiter removed... we are all just hoping that the biopsy gives her the all-clear! I stopped off at Wally World to get flowers and a card, as the gift shop was closed. But the flowers were all ugly, and the card I bought disappeared before I got to the hospital. Weird!
I was dolled up because I expected to go to karaoke with friends afterward... but I was too exhausted, so I went straight home and to bed once I left the hospital.
I call this my "princess top", probably because I feel a little like I'm at a Renaissance Faire while wearing it. It's not "polished" or "professional", though. I'm torn whether it should still have a place in my closet... I love it, but I'm not sure where it's really appropriate for me to wear... or what I should pair it with.
And I'm really not liking the tapered leg look on me. It's been so long since I'd worn it... I think I forgot that it makes me look like an ice cream cone!
I still need to figure out how to wear this with something I could wear to court:
The earrings are nothing special... but the shape echoes the pendant, and the color is a dead-on match:
Have I mentioned how much I love my purple flats? Ally from Shybiker actually met up with me in Queens when I happened to be in the City... and we had a nice chat while getting in a shopping-and-lunch girly day.
Note to self: stop buying cheap black knee-highs. They are just ugly!
Sunday, I took Bugalug for a playdate with Peanut... they had a ball!
I, of course, wore the finest in "playdate chauffeur" fashion:
Yep. I really hate tapered legs... even for gym-type pants. But these are still better than those black ones!

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.
