Tape is sticky

Just in case you didn’t know.

Moustache Man and I have been revamping the site.  It’s probably past due and I’m happy with the results.  Still, it’s surprising that I was open to the change because I like familiarity.  Ordering chicken mole at every Mexican restaurant, listening to Al Green for months and sleeping in my homely, tattered night dress (MM is not a fan) are just a few of these tendencies.

What really sparked the site change was a project I’ve been working on for the next post.  It requires more width than my format originally allowed, so MM messed with the html and voilà, a brand new layout.  Now that I’ve picked up blogging again, I appreciate how much freedom it allows.  It’s a totalitarian rule and what I say goes.  Awesome.

Sewer Rat

Are you a night owl or an early bird?  I go back and forth, as you can see.  Moustache (pronounced Moooostache) Man and me sneaked around the alleyway again like a couple of sewer rats.  We had another discussion about available light, but I wasn’t listening.  I was thinking about nail polish.  I’ve recently become obsessed with painting my nails in colorful hues.  So while he was talking about shutter speed and ISO, I was thinking: “Which should I use first, China Glaze Recycle (an elephant grey) or OPI Need Sunglasses (a mid-life-crisis car yellow)?”  Opinions, please.

Out of the Office

I’ve been “out of the office” so to speak, distracted by various developments (including a new internship!), but it’s good to be back.  The kitchen cupboard is where I keep items I’ve lost interest in or don’t wear very often.  I found this Club Monaco skirt out of that pile and set up a challenge to create a business versus casual look. The skirt is a sleek, but overtly professional piece only needing a crisp white shirt and structured bag to give corporate appeal.  With the casual outfit, I perpetrated a realistic situation using the items actually worn to “the office”.  The result was a change of pumps to sandals and an unbuttoned shirt worn in cardigan fashion.  I see myself more in the laid back look.  What about you?

Canary Song

Why not add a bit of testosterone to your feminine style?  Rough up a dainty bow-tied top by pairing it with slacks and somber hues.  These black pants are perfect boot stuffers, with enough slouch to give the overall look a military effect.  The obvious star piece is the Opening Ceremony cardigan.  It’s seasons old, but the brand’s current fall/winter fare is worthy of noting.  One of my favorites, the Moto Flare Coat was recently worn by a certain southern belle who had Four Christmases.
