What are you all up to this weekend?
Friday, July 20, 2012
So this is random, but have you ever had a super awkward conversation with a semi-stranger? I had a doozy of one ther other day and this is how it went. Bear with me on this one.
Lady: "I think I know you from somewhere"
Me: "Oh really (thinking in my head, I do not even know who you are, lady) from where?"
Lady: "You went to _____ High School"
Me: "Yep, I sure did"
Lady: "You were a varsity cheerleader there"
Me: "Yes, I was" (thinking she just recognized me from football games or competitive cheer meets)
Lady: "You cheered with my daughter, 'Sally'"
Me: "I don't think so, there was no one on my team by that name"
Lady: "Yes you did, you used to come over and pick 'Sally' up for cheer practice all the time!"
Me: "Uhhh I really don't think so, you must have me confused with someone else"
Lady: (Getting irritated with the fact I don't know what she is talking about)
"Yes, you did. You just don't remember. I used to run a daycare and you would come over all the time and hang out with Sally"
Me: "I have never been to your house and I don't know your daughter" (At this point I am fearing for any children left in this woman's care)
Lady: "Yes you did, You just don't remember You and Sally were like best friends. She was a freshman when you were a senior"
Lady: "You just don't remember"
....And that is how we left it. She was totally convinced that I somehow in the years I've been out of high school have totally forgotten friends I had or things I did. She was totally out of her tree, but I had no idea what to do in that situation.
Anyhow, that is my random story of the day.
What do you think of this outfit and my random story?

When I think of having tea, I think of dignified ladies wearing hats and gloves. One out of two isn't bad, right? I broke out a Jason Wu for Target dress that has been hanging in my closet with the tags on it for way too long, belted it with a striped belts and finished the look with some red peep-toe pumps. I thought the overall look was tea house appropriate and the meal was absolutely delicious.
How do you like my tea-time outfit?

So, I went a little bit rock n' roll, okay, maybe a lot bit rock n' roll with today's outfit. I look like Brett Michaels and a biker chick's love child, and I'm okay with this. We got this skull and crown adorned turband at work the other day and I was instantly in love. How could I not love something that gets me out of making my hair look decent? Besides, the print is very Alexander McQueen-ish which makes me love it even more.
Nikki from the blog Mascara and Building Blocks was in the store today and said this "I thought you were going to cut me." That's absolutely what I was going for: nailed it. I broke out some studded denim shorts, a black tank, black lace back vest and my combat boots that I haven't worn since I went as Lara Croft: Tomb Raider for Halloween. A multi-strand studded necklace and huge metal bracelet completed my tough girl look.
Shorts: JC Penney, Tank: K-Mart, Vest: Mom gave to me, Combat Boots: Steve Madden
Necklace and Bracelet: The Wild Iris, Turband: maurices

It came with a matching belt, but that was a bit boring, so I punched it up a bit with a lime green belt, bow earrings and navy flats. The best part was that this was a $280 BCBG dress that I got for $24.99. I honestly couldn't pass it up.
Dress: BCBG via TJ Maxx, Belt: Salvation Army,
Earrings: Closet Overload, Shoes: Boutique de Joie

|A little bit Rock N' Roll|
The one above was actually a last minute, throw it together kind of outfit that features a matte sequined top, faux leather shorts, chunky jewelry and leopard wedges. Super comfy with a little bit of edge.
In this outfit I am wearing some robin's egg blue skinny pants that I got for $8, a black and white striped trapeze top, cut-out wedges and a chunky statement bracelet.
Which look is your favorite?
