This is what I wore today. Obviously, I'm a cardigan fool and will soon end up with one in every color. The printed top is the mesh knit shell I picked up at Bealls. The pin is my mom's, circa 1975.
This shows both the HP Pussycat Blouse on me, as well as what I have to put up with during my tripod self-photo shoots. Do you think he wants ALL the attention? (Answer: Yes!)
My bow, if you could see it better, looks perfect only because it's not actually tied. I used a hair elastic to cinch the ties together in a faux-bow. Hah! FoBo, cute. You have to get REALLY close to me to see the hair elastic, so I'm going with it. Far easier than wrestling with tying a stupid bow a million times to get the ends even.
Rear view. Note to self: Don't stand like this in real life cuz you're pulling the skirt up. Waist, it's nice to see you again. ;-)
These are my latest new shoes. I suck at shoe-in-the-mirror shots. I need more light in the bedroom.
Here's the Zappos pic, so you can actually see the shoes.
I really, REALLY wanted these first. Until I remembered I don't actually wear silver. Of course, last week I didn't wear black either. ;-)
I need to be sewing the cammie purses, but instead tonight I'm going to be re-sewing a couple of pleats on some skirts so I can wear one tomorrow. They haven't ripped, but I can tell I need to secure the stress area better before the stitches do work loose. Tomorrow when I get home from the office, I'll work on the purses for a couple of hours.I want to have them done by the end of the weekend so I can cross that project off my list and shop for a coat.
In work related news, I was invited to a sit-down meeting this afternoon with my boss and my boss' boss, where they proceeded to tell me that the person I'm filling in for will be returning from her maternity leave in 2 weeks (which is about 6 weeks earlier than expected), because she's out of paid time off and needs her paychecks. Don't panic. Without missing a beat, they also told me that they will definitely be keeping me on in my current status until at least mid-January while working hard to get me in the budget for a permanent position because THEY LOVE ME. Yay, they like me — they really, really like me. ;-) (The feeling is mutual.) So while I have a bit of time before I know anything for sure, all signs are pointing in the right direction and I'm thrilled! 2012 is looking to be a goodie, even if I don't recognize THAT birthday.
