Playing a bit of catch up.
On Tuesday I had meetings all day long. I dressed for cold conference rooms.
I liked my bracelet combo a lot that day.
Wednesday I wore pants that look like crap in photos. So instead you get a swatch. I hope they don't look as bad in person as in the photos. Gingham doesn't like to be photographed at any sort of distance. Either way they went into the donate pile mentally.
Again meetings all day so I went with warmer layers.
I wore my favorite bracelets. I love this set so much.
I felt like some weird combo of what my warped mental image of a 1950's waitress/librarian/teenager would look like with the crochet necklace, vintage dress and glasses. More on the glasses below.
I wanted a eyewing to go with my new glasses, I did black and I hated how it looked so I washed it off and started over in dark plum and plum mascara and I liked the result. It appears black in photos but isn't so OMG TOO DARK for first thing in the morning.
I have been wanting a second pair of glasses as long as I have worn glasses. With only 4 months left in the year I have to spend down my medical account so I took the plunge. I wanted a "funky" pair but subtle funky because I am UBER self conscious one of my lenses magnifies one eye so I can't draw too much attention to it. (That is why I take pics at angles. You know my secret. Le Shock!)
I pinned this image of Grace Kelly because it was my ULTIMATE in looking good in glasses. I have absolutely no delusions that I will ever been like her in any way shape or form but STILL LOOK AT HER. So damn chic. Finding a pair I liked as much and fit my face was harder than you'd think. This is what I ended up with.
(if you think I look weird, Dave in particular, I flipped the photo to match the Grace one)
I complained to the glasses guy that glasses never sit on my face the way they do on others and I feel I push them up for photos and all day. He said that I have a "narrow bridge and unfortunately that is what is going to always happen to you with plastic glasses. Your bridge is too narrow for the width of nose pieces"
I frowned but said I was glad that SOMETHING on me was narrow. oy. (Keep in mind I pushed them up for the photos)
I got them at Lens Crafters and they have a 100% guarantee for 90 days so we shall see how I feel. I feel a bit too uberlibrariannerd and I am not sure I am totally ok with that yet.
and since people like kitten photos.
I got my new purse in the mail last night and she was all up in my piece the second it came in the door.
I laid the dust bag down for a minute to open the other box and she so her body is touching the INSIDE of the bag. Dust bags are meant to keep kitten hair OFF the purse, brat. She also was trying to take my skin care samples. My skin has been a total asshole lately since I changed up my meds. Just yesterday Dave suggested I try a "system" again then 24 hours later a package arrives I had totally forgot about from a skin care company for me to review. DUDE! I've had it less than 24 hours but I like it already. More later on it in detail, once I can fully test it all out.
