Today was an awesome day. We got to 60 degrees here, and everyone was out saying "hello" to each-other again. I celebrated by taking a couple of new things out for a spin...
Jacket: American Rag. Tshirt: F21. Jeans: NY&Co. Shoes: JCPenney. Earrings: Aldo.
One of my new things includes a pyramid-studded t-shirt found in the "Gaga" section of Forever 21. I don't normally go for things that are punky-- I spent so much time in them as a teenager that it's like going back to wearing diapers. But this t-shirt is heathered and the studs are bronze, so it has a femininity and quietness to it that can't be found in black leather and silver hardware.
On the opposite end of the quitness spectrum, I dove back into the sparkly nail-polish pond. I think my first bottles of nail polish were opaque white and silver glitter, and try as I might to kick this childish habit, I think I'll always be a sucker for glitter. I applied it as I got my hair did today--
The girl that did it said that she thought my earrings looked like little golden records-- I dig the comparison. She also told me that she was pregnant, and I said, "Congratulations! Are you excited?" and she said, "Not really, it isn't mine," she paused, "I'm a surrogate." I really wanted to learn more about it, but I didn't want to pry, either. What a thing to do! I can't say that I can wrap my mind around it but I'm glad the option is out there for people. Who knows, maybe I'll give her a call sometime for services other than a cut and color...
