Photography: Super Boo & Me
Stats: 5'7" 55-50-64I wore this outfit to work & to garage sales. First of all, I was in love with this top & skirt combination...I felt pretty all day. Then I looked at the photos. Neither Super Boo or I realized that the sun shining in front of me would bounce up to light me from below like a spooky jack-o-lantern. Unflattering. This top was light without being transparent & of course I thought the color was delightful. I had no choice but to tuck this shirt in, however, because it was extremely tight at the bottom.
There are 2 reasons I've been absent from blogging this week, the first is because I wasn't thrilled with posting such hideous photos of myself & the other reason is because I poked myself in the eye with eyeliner & couldn't see so well. Readers who've been following me from the beginning will know...this wasn't the first time. Thanksgiving 2013, I had to go to urgent care before the feast. I am not sure how I went over 3 decades without ever stabbing myself in the eye...especially since for about 15 years...I used a hat pin to separate each individual eyelash after I applied mascara.
Top & Skirt: Lane Bryant
Necklace: Kathy Barrick
Bracelet: VintageI've had both of these items of clothing for a decade or so without ever wearing them...they've been floating around my closet waiting to be dyed a color I actually like...so I thought I'd take it to The Girls of GB when I finally decided to put these on to run some errands. The consensus was...get rid of both items. So out they went! I'm going to try to make this a new feature...Should It Stay or Should It Go? My closet could use some purging.
My garage sale finds include (above)...2 vessels for flowers, a metal toy elephant made in India, an orange pitcher, a green glass, a holy water holder?, a vintage ice crusher, a vintage red covered cooking dish, 2 vintage table clothes for picnic-ing, & an old tin box.
Also, a metal letter L (both Super Boo & my last name begin with this letter) & a lovely Nordic Ware bundt pan.
Scary! The Halloween lighting is much more apparent in my spooky close-up! I was really pleased with my make-up this day too.
My jewelry is staying, but the outfit had to go...
