What up, StyleNation? I had planned a whole big thing on conference ensembles today, but time got away from me. So I’m doing/wearing this instead with the boots around which I will be building all of this weekend’s conference ensembles:
This skirt became MUCH more wearable after I sewed the button placard shut starting at the last button at the knee and continuing to just around the crotchal region. Prior to this point, it gaped. Also, I’m not usually a fan of the high-neck t-shirt, but this one called out to me and promised not to make my boobs look massive. It appears, thus far, to be honourable and trustworthy. Well, except for the part where it creates the illusion of flatness.
In other news, here’s a tiny glimpse of what’s going on headsuit-wise of late. Except for the single, just-visible triangle of bleach blond on one side, it’s all a darker brown that, in my humble opinion, looks better than the previous goldish blond against my occasionally too-red face. But you’ll have to take my word on this point:
Conference travel brings with it the challenge of the capsule semi-professional wardrobe. I’ve also recently determined that my conference wardrobes must also be comfortable. Like, REALLY comfortable, not just teaching-ensemble comfortable. I’ll let you know how this pans out this time.
I’m hoping to bring ONLY these boots this weekend because big suitcases SUCK to haul all over the damn place, and the conference I’m attending requires this attendee to travel by plane, bus, and train just to get to the hotel. That said, I may also bring a wee pair of flats just in case. I’ve yet to find a pair of flats that walks me around in comfort for days on end, however. (But I’m taking suggestions – as I believe Cynthia was doing earlier this week over at Be Fabulous Daily. Maybe I’ll just pop over and see what she learned. . . Feel free to ring in here if you didn’t get a chance to suggest things to Cynthia.
