this is the face i make when i think i'm going to act like a fashion blogger. not that i think fashion bloggers are like, weird faced or anything. they usually look pretty hot. but to give you an idea of my over-expressive facial activity, this is my hot fashion blogger face.
it's a problem, really, ruggy will ask me something completely mundane like why don't you carry your cell phone charger in your purse today and, in thinking of my response (but there's already SO MUCH STUFF IN MY PURSE) my face will contort into such drastic proportions, you'd think he'd asked me to go on an all tofu alcohol free diet.
speaking of diet, we kicked off the weekend at quality meats with parental balloonas. i daresay we were the most entertaining and entertained table there. and WELL FED, YO. steak tartare. beef cheeks. hanger steak with brandied cherry sauce. big daddy may have licked the bowl. i like to wear me mades to these outings, and ran outside at the end of our luncheon adventure to snap some pics in some seriously frigid air. blogger photo tip: if you are of drinking age, you don't need a coat to get good shots in winter.
oh yeah hey guess what! i made this skirt. it's not a circle skirt. it was meant to be. somewhere along the way, my math was reaaaaaalllllly off, well, just looky here, i snapped a picture while i was cutting, thinking my pattern weights looked pretty frigging cool:
THAT'S NOT A CIRCLE SKIRT OONA.
i was too enamored of this print to leave it be, so i swung the skirt around till it behaved. seems the side seam zipper wants to sit just off center front. see that pink highway just under the belt buckle? OKAY BY ME. especially since i went to the trouble to actually line this baby in burgundy georgette from paron's. the lining is a far, far better fabric than the the print, some mystery grab from 21st century fabrics...you see, i bought myself a new pair of boots, and every fabric i held up to myself that day seemed to go with my new kicks.
shoe shopping is hard. especially when daffy's goes bankrupt and your source for four dollar shoes goes poof. another reason i could not be a fashion blogger.
