Inspired

16 Jan

This outfit is from December, SUPER slacker over here!

I was alerted that I needed to post here by my friend Whitney, the hottest & coolest mommy I know (besides my own of course) who I didn’t even know read my blog! This is all very exciting, you must know!

I haven’t been posting because holy wow, Life has been crazy. I joked about the sitcom thing, but dear lord, my life these days – I can’t even write about half the shit that’s happened. Either it’s traumatic, ridiculous, hilarious, top secret, or gushy, I really don’t have the words or the energy to re-live any of it! I’ve been laughing so hard at my days that I have 4pack abs & I’m sleep deprived!

As for the outfit,

I was definitely looking inspired by Keiko Lynn. Who I have creeped on since she was on LiveJournal. Oh livejournal (reminisces about my teen angst)….

You know I love my black & white!

P.S.

This was deemed my “flight attendant” look at work 🙂

Shenanigans

12 Jan

Oh where to begin with my life these last few snowdays?

I went dumpster diving for a mattress, road bareback through the snow like a warrior princess in narnia, got much too drunk, slapped a hot guy across the face out of reflex for touching my feet, took my mom to the hospital for surgery & lucky me my moms anesthesiologist is my ex boyfriends dad! My mom told the nurse I couldn’t come bck & I threw a raging fit to get back there only to die. She was like “I tried to spare you dumbass”. So now I smell like dead bourbon, my legs are killing me from marching in the snow, & I will soon have a very loopy & sawed into mommy to take care of.

I need my own sitcom.

Speaking of my reunion…

11 Jan

Jessica (twinsie) pretty much opened her closet & dumped sections of it into a bag for me!

All week I pretty much wore SOMETHING of hers.

This outfit I was worried my skirt was too short. No matter if you cant see an INCH of skin, the owner still makes some sort of comment about the length. I went by my moms office & with her ok I went on my way.

[ DRESS AS SHIRT – THRIFTED; BOOTS – TARGET; TIGHTS – GAP THRIFTED (NEW!); SKIRT – STOLEN FROM TWINSIE; BELT – BETSEY JOHNSON :D]

Now the belt, the belt, oh! It’s BetseyJohnson & also given to me from Jess, quite comically & very ceremonial too!

On a complete side note, I’m getting so frustrated with my hair. Love the length, hate how it doesn’t really do ANYTHING. grrr.

I had a very long very fun day in the snow today & I’m wiped without any ability to write.

Business & Pleasure

10 Jan

This post is going to serve 3 purposes…

1) to declare my complete happiness over my reunion with my twinsie!

2) Perfect example of my coworkers & their name the dress game

3) show off my outfit… of course

1) I won’t go into the reasons WHY it’s been months since I’ve talked to the girl who is pretty much my soul mate, I just wanna tell you how happy I am she’s such a badass girl who is a much bigger person than me to clear the air. She’s the only one that understands a lot of things about me, & I her. We both understand the need for entire spare rooms for closets, the joys of thrifting & vintage, cupcakes, tattoos, Sex and The City, & sexy vamp stuff. I literally get giddy when we hang out now because I as much as I missed her at times over the months, I forgot how totally awesome we are together.

Mostly she’s equally as amused as I am by things like this picture showing how this dress rubbed my neck to look like vamp marks 🙂

2) Normally everyone is on the same general page with my outfit themes. Today lots of comments…

Joey – Girl you need a tan!

Alan – Cute ensemb. Tres Audrey Hepburn.

Steve W – Going or coming from the convent?

Moe – Wednesday Adams! (fave)

Jeff – he just went on about how his mom had one back in the day & how I also looked business like. oh Jeff! lol

3) [ DRESS – ANN TAYLOR THRIFTED; TIGHTS – GAP THRIFTED (NEW! $3!); SHOES – PAYLESS ]

Always said I’d raise my kids pseudo amish

9 Jan

I think my blog will quickly become simple pictures & the various themes given to the outfit by my coworkers. It’s almost become a game to who can better title my outfit. They don’t even know I blog them. haha.

This day it was funny because a coworker said “you look amish today!”

Well those socks, I happened to buy at an amish general store somewhere in BFE kentucky. Last year I was driving through with a friend & her family when we saw the store & as I have some strange obsession with the amish I HAD to stop & I HAD to buy something. The only thing that made sense at the time: socks.

So she was right on the money!

[ DRESS – TARGET THRIFTED; SHOES – WALMART; SOCKS – AMISH; SHIRT – WALMART BOYS; BELT – TJ MAXX; HEADBAND – MOMMY’S ]

Honestly, I didn’t much care for the outfit until I took my pictures. It’s funny because it can go either way. Often I love an outfit, & then after pictures I have to change something. This was exactly the opposite!

Monday is the beginning

8 Jan

Had to get my shit together for Monday. First day back to work! Man I missed everybody. I love the people I work with. Lots of hugging & catching up.

but now, I’m posting this on Friday … well Saturday at 12 am. Having closed 5 out of six nights working 12 hour days, I have no words & only bitchy looks & tense muscles.

I leave you with the outfit.

[ SHOES – WALMART; SOCKS & DRESS – TARGET; SWEATER – OLD NAVY; HAIR BOW – MADE BY MOI ]
