WWD: Toupee or Not Toupee?

Do you ever see someone with a wig on that is SO BAD you want to ask them, really, dude? Do you think you're fooling anyone? Toupee walked into my office Monday to see my boss (without an appointment), and came back yesterday (without an appointment), and my boss is a busy freakin guy, so natch he was gone both times.

I told Toupee he would be better off just making an appointment so he didn't have to keep popping in and I didn't have to keeping seeing his bad rug. 
Okay, maybe I didn't actually say that last bit, but I thought it fo shizzle. 
I mean, it was the kind of toupee that is SO bad you just can't look away from it, like a car wreck that you don't WANT to see but can't help rubbernecking just a little. The kind of toupee that is so bad that you're pretty sure they're eventually going to notice that you're not actually looking them in the eyes, but rather about 4 inches above their eyeline. 

Then again, Toupee was so busy looking "at my necklace" that perhaps he did not notice me throwing his mop the side-eye.

Ah, we were a pair, Toupee and me, back in the Halcyon days of youth approximately 12 hours ago.

Sadly, I scheduled his appointment with my boss for Thursday, when alas and alack, I will not be in the office. Job-share-partner? This bud's for you.

I LOVE this outfit - that dress is outstanding! Fun fact about moi, I used to have a cat named Toupee - she was a diva with a capital "D". I still have her two other littermates (including her twin brother, they were both solid white with long hair, but had tufts of grey fur on their heads when they were kittens - hence the names Toupee and Wiggy). I know, I have issues....

Now um....I NEED that dress! Loving how you paired it with the tights and the Dany's. Uber chic. xoxo
