And while other bloggers are yakking it up about how a great outfit can turn a bad day around, the opposite has been true for me lately. It kills my day when I wake up and can't put an acceptable ensemble together... so I snap some photos and end up changing into something completely different or an extreme variation of the original. I think the black tights are the biggest problem here. If I knew how to work Photoshop I might be able to turn them flesh-colored, but that wouldn't be very honest, now would it? Anyway, after taking these, I scrapped the hat, threw on a navy cardigan and swapped out the shoes to my suede-y blues.
And then a very bad (or good) thing happened...
...I shopped Ruche:
(even though this might mean that I can't afford to get my car inspected, by which I mean that I have to get my car inspected so I have to have the winshield replaced and I have to buy a new gas cap and I may have to have something done to my catalytic converter but I know nothing about cars so yikes, who knows? so I guess I probably can't afford groceries but this is kind of more satisfying than food, if you ask me)
And then a good thing happened :)
I stalk Ruche and ModCloth like it's my job. And Etsy, too, but that's different. I actually buy things on Etsy occasionally. Although I drool all over my keyboard every time something new pops up on ModCloth I have never purchased anything. This makes me very sad, but the prices are just this much too high for me and by the time I decide I must buckle down and finally just drop the dollars on this or that particular dress... it's sold out. The same thing happens with Ruche but the sell-outs on that site aren't quite as devastating because I've only discovered it in depth fairly recently. ModCloth and I have had a long, drawn out love-hate relationship that will probably go on until the end of time.
It's been an off week. I'll try to do better, I promise.
