I am going to Sedona the first weekend in November - I am meeting up with friends from the internet whose wedding I am performing next year! \o/ I have literally never taken a trip like this - not for a conference or training or something like that, or a music festival or camp. Other than cake and wine tastings, I…
I need a few new tanks to wear under things for work. I had a baby 6 weeks ago and my boobs have finally gotten down to a normal size again (6 weeks is apparently when they mostly stabilize). I never really wore maternity tops because I lost so much weight in pregnancy, I never much needed to. However, now I have…
This is so serious you guys.
I just finished the first series (thank you, Netflix!) and plan to keep plowing ahead through all 34 available episodes.
As I headed off to a funeral today, I was thinking about the outfits that women wear to funerals. I've seen some strange things that people thought were appropriate, and I thought this might be a good day to spread some unsolicited advice. :-)
You guiz!! It arrived!!
I wasn't very good at it. I've never been dainty or pretty.
The briefest promise of spring (i.e. the first sunny afternoon in like 6 months) plus tax returns naturally means clothes shopping! Let me share with you some of the lovelies I have purchased in the last 48 hours:
Got a favorite pair of jeans that have seen better days? You don't have to ditch them or turn those worn out jeans into ones you only use for painting. A simple dye job can bring them back from the dead.
I'm trying to crowdsource the going rate for putting in kick pleats and recommendations for seamstresses/tailors. Silhouettes and Profiles wants $50 for two skirts (one requires putting in a slit first) and so I'm hoping somebody knows somebody cheaper.
So, Eloquii is back. The store is open. I've only browsed very quickly, but I like what I see. The prices seem high, but I usually bought when there was a sale (which was all the time), so I'm sure the prices will be "adjusted" soon enough.
I stopped wearing pants in May all together.
Not one itsy bitsy teeny weenie bit.
Okay, wrote this last year, but I didn't have authorship privileges.
I didn't hate it a week ago when I last wore it. NOW I HATE IT WITH ALL OF MY BEING. Every time I've seen myself in the mirror today, I've had to stifle a groan at how much I hate this shirt. IT WAS FINE LAST WEEK. I'm over it! I'm over this shirt and when I get home I might set it on fire.
So, I mentioned a while back that I won a Hackathon and my reward is going with my team to Plano, Texas to meet some AT&T executives. I emailed the only other woman going asking what she thought appropriate attire was and I'm still confused. Clothes are confusing you guys.
Be prepared for bad pictures!
Boyfriend made a reservation at a new prix fixe restaurant in our city. Great, right? Except the Yelp doesn't have attire and he's AFK on Gchat.
Soooo I got some stuff from Eshakti a couple days ago and they sent me a code for my fraaaaaands to get $30 off for their first order. I'm pretty sure they also have Buy 2 get 1 Free right now as well so it's a pretty good deal. I get $15 for every person who uses it so go buy things people! They carry sizes 0-36W and…
Ladies of GroupThink, where should I shop if I want to look more professional, but still a bit fun, and not have to pay $500 a shirt?
