Errand Girl

August 18, 2009

Just a casual look for today, inspired by my endless list of errands at the moment.  When a huge list of run-here-do-that presents itself on a nice summer day which would be better spent at the beach, I can tend to get a bit cranky.  The only antidote, really, is to be sure that I procrastinate the errands as much as possible by choosing a cool outfit I will enjoy wearing.  Hence– today’s look.  I wish I had this ensemble in a RL version, for sure!

huh

The top is a great tee I picked up at Pink, and it is really fun!  The pink and green color combo drew me in immediately. And did you get a good look at the design?  *sigh*

I paired it with a skirt that is actually part of a dress, and part of a FREE dress I got from Elate through the DSN group.  It is a great dress, but the part I really fell in love with was this skirt.  It is high waisted, which… SQUEE.  The layers are lovely.  And… (look!  look below!)

There is a mini bustle going on in the back!  How cute is that?  (Answer… impossibly cute.)

I also decided to bring out a favorite new bag of mine, from Gbberish.  This is such a cool texture, and it is fashioned like some sort of kerchief that is folded expertly… the kind that you could put on a long stick and carry on your shoulder if you were a hobo.  Cool, right?

I treated myself to some new hair, too, and this is from lamb.  I heart lamb!  The color is so sassy, fulfilling my urge for carroty redness in a still-wearable color.  Like, hyper Irish.  And the smooth, lush texture.  Mmmmm. Put that together with my beloved Miel Jane shoes and some ruffly socks, because… well, comfort doesn’t have to be ugly!

skin detail

Speaking of ugly– or not… I am also trying out my newest skin splurge, from My Ugly Dorothy.  The detail is uniquely lovely: the slightly chapped lips are executed so perfectly, the little beauty mark on the lip… yay!  I think the best part is that I can wear this skin when I do not want to look like I had 4 hours to do my makeup, when I just want to look like a girl who rolled out of bed, had a bowl of cereal, and is now on her way to the dry cleaners.  It is beautiful in the most raw way.   (Well, as raw as a gorgeous, glowing complexion can look.  :))

OK… in case you hadn’t guessed, this post was MY way of procrastinating a few errands.  Time to face RL, the supermarket, the drug store, the post office, and the DMV.  Must… motivate…

In the meantime– happy shopping!!
