It’s been a strange, sticky, frustrating week here at IPF, Northern Division. The project I’m trying to get off my desk hates me and will not let me finish it. Thunder storms the last three nights have kept Fuzzy Roommate freaking out into the wee hours, but the humidity has yet to break. And teaching prep keeps getting in the way of the project-that-will-not-end. And let’s not forget about yet another mix-up with my pay (Why? Why always too low?!). In short and to sum up: it is stupid here.
Sartorially, I’m having issues with photos. “Issues” is code for “I’m positive these outfits are way better than pictures suggest.” This means that instead of changing clothes, there’s been a lot of craning, twisting, and adding of accessories to capture what I’m certain is really going on.
For example, the house-hunting ensemble (note: wear SLIP-ON SHOES next time):
Bag employed to fix (disguise) waist bunching. It’s too hot for a belt.
Red cotton embellished tank: Mexx
Cotton poppy skirt: Mac & Jac
Cotton & Leather bag: Esprit (You don’t want a close-up, do you? It’s a very basic bag.)
Nude platform wedges: Nine West (remixed)
Next up: the balancing series, brought to you by my inane efforts to offer a semi-rear view of the skinny pants without turning all the way around. A full-on rear view seems gauche in skinny pants (but not in an acid wash jean skirt, apparently)
. This series is also brought to you by my refusal to take more than 4 outfit shots in one go.
Embroidered cotton top: Bianca Nygard (via The Bay)
Cotton skinny pants: Mexx (remixed)
Bracelets: The Bay
Sequin espadrille wedges: Roman Tenza (bought with D-Med while visiting IPF, Eastern Division)
Screw it. This pose shall hence forth be known as
the “totally-intentional” (and thus not-at-all ridiculous)
Back Stretch ~
This weekend, I’m working on the project-that-will-not-end.
What up with you? And what are you wearing to do it?
