Do you remember me? It's been so long. A full week since my last post. Normally I have to restrain myself from posting too often, so this lengthy absence is a break from routine and may have prompted some of you to check local hospitals and the morgue...
The explanation is simple -- work is crushing me. Absorbing all my time and energy, it has prevented me from blogging. And that has me feeling B.A.D. -- which is a medical acronym for "Blogging Absence Depression." Do you ever feel B.A.D.?
To cure this affliction, I vowed to blog today no matter what. I played with some gifts generously given me by Selina, paired with a new blouse I found at Forever 21.
When people give me women's clothes, I become overwhelmed with emotion. Up until now, I never believed I'd be allowed to wear pretty clothes, so to receive them as gifts is oneiric encouragement. A dream come true. Receiving gifts makes me cry with joy.
Selina is an attractive young woman living in London. She recently started following my blog and I started reading hers. It's fun to meet people who are different from you 'cause you can learn from each other. Selina fascinates me in several ways. She also introduced me to Lookbook.
Without any reason, Selina sent me a box of cute clothes and nice jewelry. I'm wearing them in this outfit, with a cute blouse I just ran across. Before last week, I'd never visited a Forever 21 so, walking past one in a mall, I couldn't resist entering. The color and print of this blouse hollered for my attention. "Ally! Take me home!" I stood in the checkout line, a fifty-year old guy in biker-gear, surrounded by young girls who wondered why I was there. My life is stranger than you imagine.
What do you think of the clothes? Two technical points. 1. Selina included fishnet stockings which I don't normally wear but like a lot especially in this outfit. 2. I've learned -- from you guys! -- that it's okay to re-purpose clothes (e.g., wearing a dress as a skirt). My "skirt" here is actually a halter-top. I like it both ways so now it has dual-purpose.
Thank you, Selina!
