FUNNY FACES IS WHAT I DO

Grr... I don't have to work until early afternoon on Thursdays and was soooo looking forward to a few hours this morning to take care of a ton of stuff that I'm behind on. But, I had no internet! Grrrrrrrrrr... Sooooo frustrating, because everything was online!

Whatever, it's back now and I'm off to work in a half hour.

So, I'll leave you with my Wednesday get-up. I kind of like it when my outfit consists of only 2 things: Dress. Boots.

This is the return of what my husband has coined the "prison dress." Actually, the first thing he said when he saw me yesterday morning was, "Yay! Prison dress!" I love you, too.

There's something about black and white that just begs for red. It seems too easy, but I couldn't resist.

Though the photos don't show it too well, I did a new topknot that I'm totally in love with and it attracted many compliments yesterday. In my ten minutes of speed blog-reading yesterday morning before work, I checked out La Rue Nueve's Hair Tutorial. I always wondered how she got her baby fine hair to look like such a lush pile of awesomeness in her topknot. I was under the impression that perhaps is was stuffed with some prosthetic foam or something - I'm not beyond that if it was. Anyway, thanks so much for tips, Christen!

Dress: JCP, $24 - Boots: Alice & Olivia for Payless, Weardrobe Conference swag bag

  8. You're too cute to be a convict...you're more like a sexy pirate!!! ;)

    Is the dress from the American Living line at JCP? I just got a striped t-shirt dress that's AL about a month ago and was amazed at the fit--it had shape, but didn't cling, which is so important in knitwear, don't you think?

  17. Nooooo, not prison, PARISIAN! I love a black and white stripe. You just need to put a white flower in your hair and, voila! Paris, dawling. I love it with the red boots.
