Faux Snakeskin for Paperwork

The weather today is intense, like orange sky, rolling thunder storms, tornado warnings intense. It’s a good thing I’m in the work groove and won’t be wandering around the city in search of excitement this eve. Instead, FR and I went to my office to deal with one final grade change from the winter term. This one for a student who missed the final exam due to “illness,” then skipped the deferred exam and emailed me two days later, begging for mercy, claiming to have “written the date down wrong.” As she hadn’t actually shown up on said wrong date, I ignored her last request and left her to the (lack of) mercy of the university.

Anyway, here’s what I wore to do that paperwork and to write up the minutes from Monday’s meeting (I REALLY hope I’ve not inherited the latter job indefinitely).

Faux snakeskin polyester/spandex jersey dress: Chapter One (via Winners)

Black cotton blend tank dress: Le Chateau

Jean jacket: Smart Set (remixed)

Black microfibre capri-leggings: ?? (via Winners)

Black & silver patent leather slingbacks: Un Tour en Ville: Chaussures

Moonstone pendant: gifted

The faux-snakeskin dress was an impulse purchase inspired by Style Underdog’s edgy-and-freaking-awesome pleather snakeskin leggings. And much thanks to Sal of Already Pretty for the tank-dress layering idea.

  1. @Liz: Thanks for the link. That hot pink animal print is really great, and your consideration of over and under-styling is fascinating. Also, I humbly suggest that you wear that baby out with ridiculously high shoes (spikey black or silver gladiators would be awesome) and all of your gorgeous hair piled into a messy big bun on the top of your head. Then dance the night away, take photos (of the non-naughty parts), and report back!@SU: Really!? I'm so glad you like! And I'll totally check out Shoe A Day tomorrow. Are you doing a guest post?

  2. Dude, the shoes! The provenance of the shoes! Are they Crocs and you just don't want to admit it?Also, SU, newly-minted whoo girl, our work is done. Go forth to Vegas and yell "whoo" intermittently. Bonus points if a security guard tells you to settle down.
