Warts And All

Okay, I don't actually have warts.  But I do have a big, adolescent-esque zit on my nose.  And yet?  Here's what I wore on the warmest day of the week:

Notice the shoes.  Those shoes are a boy-repellent.  I actually had a date ask me if I was wearing slippers.  Um no:

Those are definitely shoes.  Worn with the only pair of short pants/capris/cropped pants that fit me right now.  As - another wart - I've gained 9 pounds, and they do not want to leave my ass.  Sigh.  You know what I say to that zit and flab?

What.  Ever.  I gotta be me!

Lace top, thrifted Target
Brown cropped cardigan, random teeny-bopper store
Brown tank, NY & Co. from a thousand years ago
Cropped pants, um.  I don't remember!!!
Fuzzy leopard print shoes, Target.

And look!  I even took a close-up picture:

But not of my zit.  THAT is scary.

A Large Untruth

This outfit is a lie, the sun is a lie and my happy face in this photo is the biggest lie of all...

Don't I look all cheerful and healthy and put together?  And doesn't that lovely sunlight make you think it's warm and lovely where I live?  LIES.  Because this is how I've really felt this week: 

This is how I really feel.  I have a massive head cold AGAIN, and I have NO TIME TO BE SICK.  I have work to work on, costumes to sew on, and chores to chore on.  At least I look okay, right?  And I looked nice for the full 4 hours I wore this, before stripping down to my jammies and hopping back in bed.

Outfit of Untruths:
Navy blue cardigan and tank top, Ann Taylor via a gift from my StepMom
White jeans, Tommy Bahama
Tan shoes, Stuart Weisman (sp?) via Optiz Outlet.
Silver cuff, one of those pop-up accessory shopping events

And just for you?  A "stuff shot", ala Sheila :)

Still Truckin'

On Tuesday, I wore a skirt, a closet orphan (to quote a Sally McGraw term), and a different pair of boots than what I wore on Monday.  What I didn't do?  Take a dang picture.  However, I wore that gear on TV.  Roll video!

And no, that was not a shameless plug to get you to watch my Cheap Chick segments... ;)

What I Wore On TV:
Red cowl-neck sweater, Express
Black ribbed cardigan, The Gap (on clearance)
Corset belt (aka, the closet orphan), Target
Charcoal grey pin-striped skirt, Issac Mizrahi for Target (god I miss his stuff)
Black sheer tights, Marshalls
Black boots, Circa Joan & David from Macy's (?).  That's their last wearing until I take them to George's Shoes for cobbling.

Yesterday, on Wednesday, I wore my third pair of boots, but no skirt.  We had a Snow My God day, and I needed to dress weather-appropriate.

Yesterday's closet orphan is that cream sweater/coat.  It's soooooooo warm, often TOO warm.  However, it was perfect for sitting in the freezing studio at my other job (yes, all my jobs involve studios, it's true).

The scarf, boots and jeggings are far from being orphans.  In fact, I wear them a wee bit too much, if you ask me...

The other orphan is the navy T-shirt.  It's flattering and a good layering piece and yet... I almost never wear it.  Bad me!  Time to put that baby on heavy rotation!

Wednesday's Winter Wear:
Cream sweater/coat, gift from my bestie Cindy
Grey fringed scarf, gift from my SIL
Navy T-shirt, Target clearance rack
Jeggings, Target
Black OTK boots, Payless
