Womens Wear Daily: Yesterdaaaaaay

This is yesterday, when life was innocent, before the card reader on my computer went kaput. It was an easier time. A simpler time. It was also my favorite outfit I have worn in a long time. The skirt was the result of my shopping expidition to Forever 21 last weekend, and I found about three more items that I am kicking myself that I didn't get. I will get them. Oh yes, I WILL get them.
Love the combo of the ethnic skirt with the ikat vest. LOVE. I also love that when you look at my photos, you don't get some boooorrrrring backdrop on the streets of New York or L.A. No, MY backdrop is a filthy mirror, a baby gate, and my dining room strewn with dirty toddler clothing and toys. Klassy.

LOVE this with the jacket (gift from Amy Bo Bamy many moons ago). Can't wait to wear this in the fall with tights and my Fryes.



This is one of my faves, TOO. Look at you all Glamouraimixologyist. Loves.

But, what the crap jacket is that? I don't remember that at all.

Then again, in my otherwise stellar bonus review at work the other day my boss said, "Just maybe one tiny's never been an issue or nothing bad has happened b/c of it...but I noticed you tend to forget things recently."

My proof that I should never defend myself in court should the need arise: "Oh, that? Yeah...TOTALLY. Worst. Memory. Ever. Guilty as charged."

So back the Jacket Joyner Kersee...don't recall that at all. Glad I gave it to you though. You're cute.


Dis jacket is part of a suit, with a skirt that is tiiiiighter than tight. I don't remember the label on it, so apparently your memory problem is rubbing off on me. That, and I'm just too lazy to go and look at it at the mo. Danke for gifting and forgetting. I think that's actually the saying - it's not forgive and forget - it's REGIFT and forget. Durrrrrr....
Blah Blah,

I know - I swear, I am going on their website this morning. I may just have to order a few things, because darn it if they don't carry the 12x12 line at mine, and I want one of those tunics that Glamourai had on last week!

You look fantastic!! And I love your backdrop. So what if you've "forgotten" to pick up a toy. Whatevs. That's why you have kids...okay I'm horrible. But I'm honest?
