Remember that package that I received the other day on my doorstep? Well, let's just say the Weardrobe Closet was good to me. Trust me, the selection process was not easy, especially trying to narrow it down to three items. Tears were shed and blood, probably spilled, but in the end, I gave one of my roses to this BDG Convertible Skirt from Urban Outfitters.
The skirt itself is awesome. Fun pattern, great feel to it and deceivingly comfortable. After some inspiration from JoyfullyStyled.com, I decided this is a definite for the list of my fave summer outfits. The only problem that I encountered was that I wish it was an eensie, weensie, teensie bit longer. I'm all for mini skirts, even with my somewhat stumpy legs, but if I have to spend most of the day trying to shimmy the thing down to sorta cover my bum, well, Houston, we have an outfit problem.
Don't get me wrong though, still love this skirt. I'm contemplating holding it hostage, but I don't think the Weardrobe karma gods will appreciate that.
In completely unrelated but still exciting news, I was tagged by the incredibly stylish Liz over at Late Afternoon to let you, oh devoted readers, in on ten things that you may or may not or just may not want to know about little ol' me. So let the creative and oh so insightful listing of things begin:
1.) I'm a vegetarian. Unfortunately, I'm a vegetarian with no admirable reasons and have been known to wear some fur on occasion. I know, I know, send PETA out to get me.
2.) My claim to writing fame (thus far) was when I wrote an Onion-esque column for my college newspaper about Lady Gaga and Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons. Huffington Post picked it up, reported it as true and someone even included it on Lady Gaga's Wiki page.
3.) I love satire anything.
4.) My nickname at my last job was Chubby since I'm always eating something. In fact, I'm 99 percent sure they installed the new vending machine just for me.
5.) I ran a marathon once and lost my two big toe nails because of ill-fitting shoes that began to hurt around mile 5. After this incident, it may be best for me to find women's narrow fitting shoes, so I know that the shoes will fit properly for next time.
6.) I have broken the hanging rack in my closet due to excessive weight from clothes far more times than I would like to admit.
7.) I wish I could have lived in Paris and been one of Hemingway's fellow expatriates.
8.) Pssst...I have a confession. I don't think the world is going to end in 2012.
9.) I studied abroad in Italy for a semester in college during the 2006 Winter Olympics. I met Shaun White while I was there. His red hair is not that red. Disappointing.
10.) Making fun of Sarah Palin is a pastime for me. She's like a bad car crash. Horrible but hard to turn away from.
And now I am tagging the following lovely people:
Happy Monday everyone!
