My first sweater dress

I know I am late on the ban wagon but I am working with cheap/ free clothes here.  I mean the last thing I bought in a store was two $1 scarves and before that. . . Oh gosh I think a $4 top?  So it takes me a bit longer for some things.  But since I saw a girl rock a sweater dress back in the 90's I determined I would have one of my own... eeek it took a while but here it is.

The gift of individual monotony

I love cardigans... legit.  The best part is when packing for a trip I can literally take one top and pants for a three day trip... just need 3 different cardigans.  No one notices!  I tried it.  I got great compliments on each outfit and no one blinked at the same color top and same pants. . . it weird-ed me out.  Now, I will say I am not a big advocate of reusing tops and pants that often that many days in a row but it is a wonderful gift that the cardigan allows... it is your duty to figure out if that is a gift you want to take advantage of.

I simply remember my favorite things...

One of my favorite things in all the world is being able to see my breath.  I'm not sure if it is the promise of all that cold, the clothes I get to wear or the memories from my childhood pretending I were a king pin and puffing away on my amazing, invisible cigars.

Whatever it is I will be wishing my joy bye for yet another time here soon... 

I can't believe how time flies!

Best couch sitter ever

Do you ever have one of those days where you just don't want to leave the couch?  Today is one of those days.  I try to accomplish something and I am figuratively pushed back down... 

and settle in for a wonderful day on the couch... oh, wait that's not how life works.  But wouldn't it be grand if it were.  I'm pretty sure I would be the best couch sitter in all the world!

Trying to make an illusion of more than two hands I guess.

Don't ask me why

Legitimately I do not know why I decided it was stretch photo time.  I think it just comes down to I feel a little bored of just standing for the shot... so I arch?  Not sure.  Excuse the weird pose or simply enjoy it in humor?

Not sure what the right answer is but this isn't it.

Why yes, this is my sorority girl face?  I do just let myself free and silly in front of the camera.

Splatter of colors

A lot of the time I enjoy the thinning effect black but there are times where the more wild and crazy side of me comes out an a spatter of color.  Today is one of those days.  As I slowly pulled this outfit together with each layer I stopped and thought, "Too much? NAH!"  So you can tell me if I lost my touch but no matter what you say I love my bright and loud outfit.

Residual Flower Child

Growing up with a mother from Lake Tahoe, CA we (my 4 siblings and myself) we were raised in a. . . slightly hippie lifestyle.  I was no stranger to alfalfa sprouts.  I still enjoy a lot of how I was raised, including but not limited to alfalfa sprouts, but there is a residual need to be a little flower child-ish and when these feelings come on it outlets in different ways.

Today it came out in this.

Childhood dreams coming virtually true

I was a weird child.  I mean for so many reasons I was an odd kid but namely I was odd because I desperately wanted braces.  I mean I used to pretend I had braces using my awesome jelly bracelets as pretend bands... I was that kid.  One of the only things I wanted more than braces as a kid was glasses.  A close friend of mine in Elementary school went a way and came back with eyeglasses and that's when I deemed it too awesome and I had to get a part.

My parents were not as understanding of my deep pitted desire to have amazing glasses.  They sat me down and explained that just because you like glasses or think they look cool doesn't mean you get glasses.  They proceeded to crash my dreams, when they took me to the eye doctor and he sided with them.  I was so dishearten that my parents actually popped the lenses out of a really old pair of my mother's glasses.  Though not as awesome as my own they worked for the amazing fashion look I was going for even with the eyeglasses frames being rather too large for my face .

As I got older I realized that glasses aren't the picnic that I thought they were when I was a child.  My mother, father and sister over the years has had to replace their glasses and every time I am surprised at the costs.  So much money.  So to my utter surprise and amazement not a week after my mother had to go through this whole hassle of getting a new pair of glasses and amazing company contacted me about doing a feature on their product.  I looked over site and read the reviews of their many users I was so encouraged by what I saw.  Their willingness to help their clients with their needs and customer service.  So after finding all what their users had to say about their company I agreed to tell you all about them; about a great way to save with buying glasses online.

I finally got to do it: I got to try on as many glasses I wanted. . . even if I don't get to take them home: maybe one day!

GlassesUSA not only do they offer a 110% lowest price guarantee and a 100% satisfaction guarantee along with a generous refer-a-friend program they are giving all you lovely readers 50% of any pair of eyeglasses on all orders over $80 (Code: SPECIAL) and 10% off any order of prescription glasses (Code: Blog10).

This might just be one of them.

Oh, I'm sorry did I not explain?  This might be a new default outfit, I liked it that much... but then again I am always a sucker for vest (check), multi-toned outfits(check) and crop pants (check)... so I didn't have much of an option.

"One of those I need to get dressed and want to feel great but only have 2 minutes" kind of outfits.

Do you have any of those?
