This dress really needs leggings to make it work. When I first brought it home from abroad, it was during the dog days of Summer and I was wearing it on it's own. As you can see in this old post, it is clearly the wrong way to go with this dress. These black leggings are quite an improvement don't you agree?
This is me lazing around the house before work. I later added a yellow sweater and some ankle boots to take this outfit into public.

I'm one of those people who is constantly making notes on small scraps of paper. I have tons of them floating around my house, my purse, my car, etc. There are grocery lists, thesis ideas, books I want to read, quotes, all sorts of random things. Anyway, I've been trying to rein in these little beasts and whilst organizing this week, I came across this:
|["I dare you to go a week w/o jeans" in case you can't read my chicken scratch]|
"Okay" I thought "You're on!" and so we begin a jeans free week today.

earlier this year and had not much to say about it, so I guess this time I should make a bit more of an effort. Okay, so this is a typical work look for me when I can't be bothered. As I have said, I've amassed quite a few statement necklaces since starting my current job at a certain store. The striped top is also from work.

Well . . . sort of . . .
Anyone who's seen my house knows I have a terrible time throwing things away (we're talking useful things here people, there is no rotting food or mummified cats lurking in my cupboards) and this extends to intangibles like ideas. So the fact that I took this picture with the intent to post kept nagging me and holding up the posting of subsequent entries. In the end I have decided to just publish and be damned.
So, shall we talk about the picture in question? Several months ago I bought a series of treatments at a local spa. Most of them have been of the sauna and massage variety, but today's bill of fare was an eyebrow sugaring and mineral makeup application. I told the makeup artist to go wild and here are the results - what I refer to as "drag queen makeup". Of course it is far from that, but as someone who never wears more than some lipstick and possibly a bit of eyeliner, having a full face of powder, blush and what have you is a bit much. She also did a bit of a smoky eye thing on me, a trick I have never mastered and don't really think suites me all that well (I'm much more of a flicked liquid eyeliner sort of gal). Anyway, here I am moments after undergoing the brush.

"Not bad, but a little bleached out - I can do better"
"Much better, but I've cut off my fancy pink shoes. Maybe a different angle"
"I'll just take a picture of the shoes in case I can't crack this thing"
"Ugh, just as bad as the last one"
"Better lighting, but rubbish composition. Once more."
"F*** it! I give up!"

Obviously when one thinks of England and magic, one thinks of Harry Potter, so I amused myself today by telling people a fanciful backstory about the London School of Sorcery - sort of a vocational college for the working class wizard (in other words too cheap to go to Hogwarts).

I call this my "hedgehog love" sweater. I love hedgehogs, most people love this sweater (one coworker said "If I owned that sweater, I'd wear the s*** out of it") and these hedgehogs seem to be feeling the love as well. Therefore a perfect top for the Valentine's season.
