Last week’s Mr. Intimidation appears to have dropped the course. And I’m a little disappointed, frankly, as I’ve ended up working against my knee-jerk go-conservative response and have opted instead for outfits involving bows and curve-hugginess this week. I don’t generally possess dangerous curves – and things are especially PG this term as, in a strange and unprecedented twist of fate, stress is whittling away at my hips instead of adding padding – but I’ve got some skirts that make the best of what I’ve currently got going on. And so, I’m emphasizing my “womanliness.”
Students who don’t like it can just try to coerce and intimidate me. And then, they can suck it.
Yesterday’s ensemble had puffy sleeves, arm bows, lots of jewellery, and a pencil skirt:
Blouse: Bob Mackie
Necklace: craft show
Bracelet: Hudson’s Bay Co. (sale rack in the old lady jewellery section)
Watch: Timex Indiglo (was my grandmother’s)
And today: a sort of tulip-ish skirt:
I thought about wearing the shoes on the right – the red Fluevogs – but they felt like a little too much shoe for this ensemble. I think th
ey may need more black to ground them. But I’m open to suggestions.
Anyway, I wore the shoes on the left. I wish you could see how deliciously cherry red they are, but I can’t make my camera reproduce the colour.
Sweater: Jacob (it’s navy blue, in case you are wondering about it)
Skirt: Olsen Europe
Hose: Silks (I think the colour’s called Oyster, or Linen; I like it because it’s as pale as I am)
Shoes: Liz Claiborne (Winners, again)
Watch: Timex (remixed)
And here’s what the beautiful Fluevogs look like up close. Drool-worthy, no? And yet, I search (and fail repeatedly in my quest) for the perfect outfit to support their awesomeness.
