Variations on a theme

I sense a theme developing this week. I have to confess I stole the hoodie dress thing from beckdress.

Dress Target
Hoodie Target (its brown)
Tights Target (well look at that all Target!)
Flowers H&M
Over knee socks Mark by Avon
Earrings Husband made
Boot Aldo

This top photo that face is me totally getting caught by someone walking by for the first time. So far up here I had avoided someone catching me taking the photo. I have gotten caught setting up but this was mid timer.

I have had these boots since I think 2003. I know I had them in my last apt and I moved 4 years ago. My sister in law and I were both at my in laws (must of been years then!) and when she wasn't looking I tried her boots on and then had to hunt down my own pair. They are a bit too big now. Did you know when you lose weight your feet shrink?? Oddly I wore an 8.5 since high school and I was THIN in high school then in past two years my feet are now a 7. I weigh probably 40 lbs more than in hig school but about 25 less than I did 3 years ago. Weird right? I am keeping the boots I don't care if they are a bit too long now.

I love picnik the photo editing partner of Flickr. While I know photoshop I like the ease of picnik. I made myself vampireish in picnik then brought it into potatoshop for some lomocrossprocessing love.

I think it came out hilarious. I think it needs to be my new icon.

My question to you today is...
What are you currently reading?

I am reading book 6 of the P.C Cast House of Night series. Its fluffy very silly fun. Not highbrow by any means but I love it. I am reading the ebook of it. It is fun just getting a little reading in here and there on the T or waiting in line for dressing rooms. But I am almost done so I need book suggestions!

I'm reading a book my landscape architecture teacher lent me. It's called Living Systems: Innovative Materials and Technologies for Landscape Architecture.

I like the pictures mostly...

I'm reading The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon (but the French version). I started this morning, but so far it looks very good.

I'm also reading some French comics from Manu Larcenet but I don't think they've been translated.

Oh I read that on vacation one year! It is good!

Sal said...

Damn, you are one scary vampire. I'm digging into Daddy Likey's new book, Closet Confidential, and LOVING it.

Chelsea said...

I'm reading Bel Canto by Ann Patchett. I just started it, but I've heard wonderful things from some friends! It's great so far...

ShopKim said...

You look very pretty and I am really liking this look on you!

Currently I'm reading A Reliable Wife that I got from KT.

Kimberly said...

Love the vampy pic!! I am on the 4th book in the same House of Night Series. I almost feel guilty reading right now because I should be reading for my Real Estate Class or another winner of a book called "The Design, Operation and Maintenance of Building Systems, Part 1" which is 600 pages!

I'm always afraid of sounding so elitist when I say it, but I'm reading Jane Eyre and I'm loving it. I'm also reading Feel Good, a self-help cognitive behaviorial book.

Love the details on the dress.

Lisa said...

I'm reading Stranger in a Strange Land right now, but next on my list is Napoleon's Buttons which I've heard a lot of rave reviews about.

For lighter reading over the summer I read The Girl with a Pearl Earring which I thought was pretty good.

Kasmira said...

I'm reading The Kommandant's Girl right now. It is great.

I like those PC Cast books. Definitely mental junk food, but fun! I need to add the latest one to my library hold list.

Erin of WorkWithWhatYou'veGot turned me on to the Uglies series. You might like that.

anna said...

oh gosh this color palette looks fantastic on you.

I'm currently reading The Geography of Bliss. I've got 2 chapters left but stupid work and the kids' boring ass essays are getting in my way. I'm holding off til Thanksgiving to catch up with you and Kimberly for that vamp series- can't wait!

Heather said...

The vampire picture is so good. I'm re-reading The Historian - excellent.

Lorena said...

I SHOULD be reading something, but I am not.
Just any magazine I can get my hands on during flights... if blog reading counts... i am trying to catch up !

hillary said...

chelsea my sil loaned me that book YEARS ago and it has been on my shelf. I think I need to get it down and actually read it finally! I feel bad I still have it!

I am trying to get in all the book reading I can before xmas to show santa how wise an investment the nook is. ha!

kasmira that is exactly what they are. Mental junk food. tasty junk food. I read 27 vampire books this year so far.
