I'm beginning with a creation of my own, the neatest part of which is... I match my new car! Yes, my black outfit with red accents is the perfect companion for my new Abarth. Coincidence? I think not. :-)
Speaking of which, the Abarth is molding around me and becoming part of me. Its seat and cockpit fit me like a tony Italian glove. The shape of the leather steering wheel sits in my hands like an extension of my body. The car's responsiveness to shifting and acceleration feel as natural as any I've ever experienced. What a wonderful choice! I think you should get one. Okay?
stripes are everywhere these days too.. everyone is wearing them.. cute sweater!!! love your shoe-booties too!!! am busy baking and cleaning to day so this is my quick break and visit!! hope you are having a great weekend so far!! xo jReplyDelete
I would have never thought to style that top this way - I love it! This outfit makes me want to go shopping for cardigans + boots. :)ReplyDelete
Nice first outfit... i need a cardi like that.ReplyDelete
The red and black is so kick-ass! Congrats on the new addition to your family. :)ReplyDelete
Totally excellent look! You and your car look good enough to film a commercial together.ReplyDelete
Admittedly I've never found such a connection with anything on wheels (be it bike, car, or rollerskates) - I envy those who have such passion!
My head is spinning from all the fabulousness I missed on your blog recently. OMG.ReplyDelete
As for this post, your outfit is fantastic. I love that sweater on you. It fits you like a glove.
And as for your new car, congratulations! It looks ridiculously awesome. You're such a bad a$$. ;)
Nice job, Ally!! This looks great. This would make a perfect "Miss Ally the Sexy Teacher" outfit.ReplyDelete
I hadn't thought of that but you're perfectly right, Lisa. Thanks for the idea.Delete
Okay, I'll get one of those cars too!ReplyDelete
That's a practical way to wear your red bra thingy. I bet it feels sexy to you underneath it all. Knowing it's there makes all the difference.
I'd heard women wear sexy lingerie, hidden beneath their clothing, to feel good and I never believed that -- until now!Delete
You are very beautiful! you look amazing!ReplyDelete
I have a request - write about your makeup?
Sure, buddy. I hesitate about doing so because my makeup is always so primitive. The average girl knows volumes more than me.Delete
I don't always wear foundation but love to. I find it very hard to locate one that matches my skin-color because I'm furtively applying some to my wrist in the store instead of openly asking a saleswoman for assistance. Life would be so much easier if I could do things like that.
Two things I always do are darken my eyebrows with brown powder (smart readers corrected my prior use of black) and apply lipstick. Even though I can't wear makeup in public, I still own 16 different colors. How is that possible?!
I enjoy adding eyeshadow. I learned, through hard experience, that eyeshadow-primer is essential for me: otherwise, the shadow doesn't stick. My application of shadow has slowly gotten better; I'm learning how to shape and blend it on my lids.
I like adding false eyelashes for the femininity they create but they are tricky little buggers to apply. As a result, I use them only for special occasions.
Thanks for asking!
Oh I love this Ally! You know I adore patterns, so I love the striped sweater with the patterned skirt! I'd say it definitely matches your new car! Wish I could go for a ride!ReplyDelete
I love seeing real-time Ally, you'd fit in at any workplace or casual gathering here. You're really a pretty woman, and I'm so glad you're embracing that and gaining confidence.ReplyDelete
The closest I might get to a car like that is a ride in yours sometime :P Keep your fingers crossed for oldest getting confirmation on an apt in NYC Monday - she's been subletting and is ready to have a permanent residence :)
Funny story, I had packaged your belated bday present to send, but when I went to mail it, Sasha Jane, the kitten I share with Megan Mae, had left the outside packing full of kitty teeth marks and claw marks :o I of course repackaged it and just want you to know that I think the contents are kitty proof but I don't know if she punctured the card...
Your legs look great!!!
Very appealing take on this beautiful, glittering little top. I like the fact that overall it's a somewhat conservative outfit (usually my fave kind), but we who follow your blog know the sparkly secret that's lurking under that cozy cardigan.ReplyDelete
Excellent excellent excellent! I love stripes, and yours are awesome. :-) I love how you used your new little top thing- it looks so cute peeking out.ReplyDelete
Absolutely stunning, great photos!ReplyDelete
Great outfit! This looks like something I'd wear to work. Love that sweater!ReplyDelete
LOVE your outfit--I would totally wear it (with a longer skirt--I ENVY your gorgeous gams!!)ReplyDelete
this is greatReplyDelete

Excellent outfit, Ally - so nice to see you looking so happy, as well as lovely and elegant.ReplyDelete
Red/Black is one of my favorite color combos, Ally and you look stunning in it. Love that cardi!ReplyDelete
This is one of my favourite outfits of yours. It is so well put together and I love the cardigan...and how exciting, you posted it on the day I got married.ReplyDelete
