Store Updates; A New Adventure.

I'm the type that thrives on busyness.  It seems the more I have scheduled, the more I get done.  I listed a few new things in the store.  As you'll see, my obsession with adorable, walkable shoes and tiny purses has manifested itself in my latest uploads...






After, I met up with some folks regarding a new venture of mine.  The arts organization that I belong to threw up their hands in blogging despair, so I volunteered to take it on.  Here, we make notes about what I should blog about regarding their annual huuuuge party.  Details to come. 


One of the gals in attendance noted that I had "changed my shoes", as somehow I have became known as the girl with bright gold shoes.  "Do you change your outfits often in one day?"  She asked.  "Sometimes, yes..." Like my childhood heroine, Nancy Drew, I sometimes change outfits during the day, if only to put myself in a new mindset for the next "chapter" in my schedule.  Maybe as my days get busier, I'll put myself through ever-more costume changes.  Here's what I wore to the meeting...

Oxford:  WalMart.  Wrap Skirt:  Mayan Connection.  Shoes:  Steve Madden.  Bag:  thrifted.

My camera has started to take quite pukey pictures lately; I don't have much in the way of explanation of these last couple of pictures.  I'm annoyed because I enjoyed wearing this number.  Simple, and just business-y enough with enough color and pattern to pass for art hag.


My friend E.L. is an avid wearer of blue nail-polish.  I first started admiring it last summer, and no lie, since then, I have test driven about 10 different shades, all unflattering in their own special ways, before finding this one.  I am thrilled with its aquamarine hue and dull sheen.  I only rue that it comes in a half-sized bottle that I found in what must have been a bin of rejects at the Sally Beauty Supply in the less-traveled parts of town.  For reference, it's called Bonita "Blue Savannah". Must... find... more...

The bag is a favorite new thing for me as well, it's a vintage Dooney & Bourke bag and, while I don't really get wild over labels, it is the real deal-- no glued on duck for me!  Although from this photo, it could be a sperm whale for all we know.

Til the next chapter,

Yours,

Elissa.
