Wednesday

Picture 016Picture 018Very warm day here in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States! Opened the window last night. Still raining, but I am not complaining considering how very dar it has been here and further south the past couple of months.

Today I woke up on time, didn't spend forever fiddling on the computer and had time to look cute and be to work on time. I feel that I am in my last week here, should go out with a bang style-wise. I thought this was a good start for a balmy November day…

Black cotton wrap top from Ann Taylor, black stretch poplin trousers from Caslon, leopard peeptoe heels from BCBGirls, faux tortoise and gold necklaces from a beach boutique, gold hoops from Claire's, gold bangles from Ralph Lauren.

Hair is day 2.5, I brushed it out, turned the ends under wiht the curling iron and then mussed it up to it's current look. I am hoping it's more sultry (hence the wanna-be sultryish face), and less bedhead.

Makeup is L'Oreal True Match foundation in C3 – the thicker stuff on the cap used as concealer, then philosophy's The Supernatural in Beige as the actual foundation. Nars blush in Orgasm, Revlon Super Lustrous lip gloss in Pink Afterglow, Body Shop shadow in Slate on lid, Soft Black in crease and along lash lines. Lashes curled, two coats of SiorShow and then a very very thin line of black Maybelline UltraLiner on top lash line.

    I don’t wear a lot of prints for a few reasons:

    1. Prints are more memorable, therefore cannot be worn as regularly.

    2. Prints become dated our out of style faster than solids, which means more spending.

    3. Prints often make body parts look bigger than solids – prints are not flattering to my broad shouldered/busty/heavy armed self or my bootlicious/sturdy legged bottom half.

    4. Prints are harder to mix and match.

    5. I don’t like most prints in truth. I don’t like them much on others and I hate them on me. Solids make me happy, make me feel chic, they are simple and elegant and fit my personality. If there is a print in my wardrobe, it is a very special piece worthy of such a situation.

    Often I buy a printed item and tire of it after two wearings. I talk to many women, they also find that they tire of, donate and get rid of printed garments much faster than solids. An interesting experiment to do with your own wardrobe…

    I love your blog!
    What a fabulous idea of documenting what you wear!
    However, I do have one question….and please don’t think me rude and uncivil when I ask this question…..but are all your pieces of clothing a monotone color? Which isn’t bad…but how ’bout throwing a print in a lil more often? ūüôā
    Just like you did above with the animal print…:)

    Oooh, I like the pouty look you are sporting today! Congrats on the new job! I wish you luck! i recently took a new position in the field I’ve been in for a while, but a totally different aspect of it. I wish I had thought of some of your questions! I will eventually have my own office….but they loosely define office…..think glorified cubicle. But its ok, I love the job so I can deal with a cube. I wont be in it much anyway.

    You’re definitely rockin’ the sultry today!

    Inspired by you owning your waves so often, I’m wearing mine au natural today, for the first time in months. Its pretty cute, actually!

    Congrats on your new job. I’m sure suburbia will miss your style, but how fun to be downtown and near lunch-y friends!
