Thursday doesn't even start


My boss is out of town. You know what that means? I can wear Orange and Black without the dreaded Halloween comments. (EVERYTIME) I actually told her once that I save it for when she isn't there because of that. heee. It's also a secret spicy outfit because I have my I<3 Norwegian Wood harness on! But most people will only think it is a belt. See below for what coworkers will see. Dave took my pics this morning before he left because my situation has been lately that I just don't have a spot at work. So I had to make a compromise and I took it pre makeup and accessories because he leaves before I do. I added additional makeup and accessories pics below.

Skirt American Apparel
Tights Ann Taylor
Harness I <3 Norwegian Wood
Turtleneck H&M
Sweater NY and Co
Shabooties Nine West
Earrings gift
Bracelet Gap
Its like a secret surprise. Because this is what people will see at work all day.

Thanks for your kind words on yesterdays mad woman rantings post. I feel much better. MUCH. At this very moment my dad is in surgery so please pray to who ever you pray to that he comes through quick and painless and has a speedy recovery.

What are you wearing today? What are you having for lunch? Dinner?

Oooh your belt/harness is very bustier-esque! Hot-to-trot! I'm wearing another "blah" outfit today. We'll see if I put it up on the blog. I'll be having a pb&j sammich for lunch, and dinner is to be determined. Great nail color!

Thats the cardi I got at NY&CO!!! They are on sale for 19.99. I bought the charteuse-y/yellowy one but I'm thinking of going back for the royal blue one as well. I was so excited because there was a similar chartreuse cardi at JCrew last season (sans the flowers) that I waited till it was on sale and then of course there were no more in my size. And I swear when I walked into NY&Co I thought "Hillary would approve". I wonder if I subliminally remembered you had it? :P

I am wearing a slouchy super deep v neck grey sweater (thrifted, but it's from JC Penney) with a black gap perfect t under it, my Hillary trouser jeans (also thrifted, also from JC Penney), and grey and black plaid ballet flats (I think they are rocket dogs, too lazy to take my damn shoe off and look).

Will keep your pa in my thoughts today!

p.s.
I probably won't eat lunch, if I do it will be a protein bar. I just got asked to dinner with some friends at this amazing restaurant down the street so I will probably have a whiskey burger with fries.

Sal said...

Every time? For really? One Halloween joke is more than enough.

That harness is super sassy, doll!

Suz said...

This is an incredible outfit. And let's be honest, you don't look Halloween-y at all, you look super chic. I think your nails add a nice contrasting color.

Chelsea said...

you are totally a redhead/clothed version of betty page today! I am LOVING your hair, and that harness is spicy, indeed! and I'm loving the fresh faced look... it's fun to see before and after makeup looks (even if the before was only circumstantial!). oh, and your outfit is lovely... the shabooties are the perfect footwear for it!

hillary said...

chelsea. honest truth? I photoshopped the hell out of my before face. I used the healing brush heavily.

TexNYQueen said...

Lemondrop Marie said...

Clare said...

Orange and black is actually one of my favorite color combos, but I rarely wear it because of the "halloweeny" implications. I do love it, though.

hillary said...

See this photo. it is the middle one

The three of them are all essie and
The teal is
Greenport

the blue is
Shelter Isalnd

The mint green is
mint candy apple


Kelly Well I can't give it all away right. ha. I doubt anyone noticed it all day.

Lemondrop and Sal she says it EVERYSINGLETIME seriously. So annoying.

Thanks everyone. You all so made my day. It was a rough rough day especially since I couldn't be there for my mom who is all alone while he is in hospital.

Kasmira said...

Oh, I LOVE that first pose. So sassy! You should add it to your regular rotation. :)
