in which dressing is an art

Photobucket

I wish I had known my hair looked like a busted soufflé before I took all of my outfit photos this morning. C'est la vie, I suppose. This outfit came together in a whirlwind this morning (clearly my hair was a victim of said whirlwind), so I am pretty impressed with myself for being inspired enough to tuck the bottom half of this sweater under for the cropped look I so admire. Also, apparently it is "gaze off into the distance" day on the blog:

Last night the girls and I met for Art Club and it was a great success! Fueled by a delicious cheese spread, we discussed our current projects (and our lives, of course...), then shared some of them! We had a very special advanced screening of Elizabeth's documentary short, tried on Sasha's latest sewing project, and read/critiqued some of Megan's poetry. I was the only lame-o who didn't have anything to contribute for critique, but I really don't want to start tearing apart the novel before it's even finished (we'll get there...)! These gals are so talented (and just awesome), I'm so happy to know them!

  3. Oh you look so cute! I love the layered stripes and dots, this doesn't look like a last minute outfit at all, it looks stylish! The scarf is such a nice pop of colour!

  4. Wowza... new layout! When did that happen? Whoops, I guess I've been a poor blog reader the last week or so. Anyway, I love it, it's so nice and bright.

    I took about 400 outfit shots today and not one of them was usable. Lots of staring into the distance and snickering into my collar. I think your hair looks just fine and admire your ability to take pictures every day!

  5. I love the stripes with the polka dots! The cropped sweater effect was pulled off nicely, hmmm...I may need to try this. Also, the colour palette is so wonderful.

  7. The stripes and dots are so cute together! I like how you folded the sweater up to make it cropped too. Also, I always love your hair. I have a great love for big hair.

  8. I have such a love of your bouffant, I have an obsession with big hair like this, you rock it lady.
    Also stripes and dots are the perfect combination and I love the way you're rocking them here. Beautiful!!
