I confound people who judge me quickly, assume they know who I am, and are later shocked to discover sides and depth to me beyond their hasty assessment. I have many levels beneath the surface. Still waters run deep. :)
This occurs in fashion, too. While I often dress demurely, I have a quiet penchant for being wild and brassy with my style. As you'll see in a moment, I can switch from middle-aged matron to young rocker-chick in a heartbeat.
Here's my new mini-skirt with glittery animal-print. Not what you expected from me? That's your fault, buddy, not mine! :)
I WANT that fur collar. What a steal!ReplyDelete
Dressing up is all about defying expectations!
I love the skirt--where did you find it?! :)ReplyDelete
It's unfortunate that we're programmed to make judgment on appearance so quickly. It's even more unfortunate that a lot of people stop at the first judgment since there is so much more to a person than what meets the eye.
I always saw a little rocker in you though :) love love love it!
Here's where I got the skirt, Bri:ReplyDelete
I was buying two DVD's from Amazon and, if I spent another $5, I'd get shipping for free (which was costing $6). So I searched their site and found the skirt for $9. Which, with the saved shipping-cost, was then only... um... can someone here do math??
Killer skirt! I love the little bit of flare it's got going on, it makes a really nice proportion for you. And paired with the boots it's definitely rocker chick.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Alya. Coming from a fashion-expert like you, that really counts.ReplyDelete
You are, seriously, one of my primary fashion role-models. I've learned a lot from watching you not only put together outfits but also wear them with brio.
You have amazing legs!!! also, great taste in the leopard skirt! I was went from Doe Deere's Blog, if you were wondering. hehe. Have a great day. xD - Susana L.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Susana. That's a sweet thing to say.ReplyDelete
Ohhh! That's definitely something wild! Rawr ;)ReplyDelete
Looks lovely on you, and thumbs up for trying something new ^^.
I absolutely love the skirt, It's something I'd wear too. Maybe paired with boots and a casual black shirt.
And thank you for stopping by my blog. I was shocked since today I just discovered yours. ;)
When I discover something wonderful like your blog, I don't waste time!ReplyDelete
I see lots and lots of interesting stuff on your blog; I can't wait to read it.
The bottom look is my favorite of the three. Wild, but classy. The vest with the matching collar is borderline too much, but if you're feeling wild it can be pulled off. Ditch the belt over the vest, but it could be good with the bottom outfit.ReplyDelete
I almost forgot- the shape of this skirt is so much better on you than those short, clingy ones. Good job!ReplyDelete
Rawr! :) Amen, buddy. None of us are unidimensional!ReplyDelete
I recently got some leopard print flats... perhaps they'll need to make an appearance next week!
Oh wow. This is a lovely outfit, please do keep posting pretty fashion. I love it.ReplyDelete
Thanks guys! I appreciate your support and advice.ReplyDelete
Lawyerdoll: You're right about the shape of the skirt. Freeda taught me to get skirts and dresses that flare out to create a better silhouette. That works.
Freeda: We want to see those flats. Time for you to come out of the cage and roar!
Shayla: You're so sweet!
