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,
