WWD: Too Damn Hot

When the temperature gauge in my car reads 105 degrees almost every afternoon, I cannot be bothered to wear much more than tanks and skirts or pants to work. I knew I wanted to recreate this look from SJP that I saw back in the days of yore (about 2 months ago):

And I think my outfit is a pretty good interpretation:

Alllllso, I have been loving the hot pink lip that I'm seeing all over tarnation, and saw a color that I j'adored right here, so I het up Target and picked up a tube-a-lube.
(nice brawr strap...)

And while I was there, I maaaay have spotted the belt I'm wearing (around my waist, my bracelet is actually a belt wrapped twelvity-five times around my wrist), so I picked that up too.
Funny story. Today at work, I was on my way to the restroom to do a little bathroom dancing (and by "bathroom dancing," I mean exactly that. Sometimes I like to go in the restroom and dance, you know, just to let off a little steam. ANYHOOOOOOZLE, on my way, I ran into a lady who works on the other side of the building, and she said, "You're so short!" and I laughed, because she typically sees me wearing my J Simpson Dany platforms, which are literally 5-inch plats. Today I had on flats (not plats, just flats). And I said, I can always tell a difference when I wear my flats, cuz I have to stand on tiptoe to reach the copier, and when I go across the street to get my afternoon coffee I can't see over the counter. 

Okay, maybe that story isn't FUNNY funny, but just trivial funny. Or maybe it's not funny at all. Whatever. Way to end this post on a bang!

I love the color blocking! And your lip color looks fantastic on you!

GORGEOUS. When I do come to KC, you shall do my make-up. Maybe while we watch Bodyrock? Unless that would be gross???

Gosh - thanks everyone! And thanks Picnik, without whose Airbrush feature I wouldn't look QUITE this radiant.

Emily - I am down with that. Pervy wankers unite!

No flattery here.. just brutal honest truth. You look way better. Way to interpret and top the always radiant fashion sense of SJP.
