i'm back!

not that i was ever really gone.

i was just wrestling with the awful wireless signal this whole week. stupid internet. it's bad enough that the neighbors don't share. it's okay though because my sister fixed it (thanks!!). i missed it. i felt all disconnected from the world and behind on my blog-reading.

(umm...i might need to get out more)

gosh. i feel like i had a lot to say/post, and now i can't remember what it was. typical. so here's a work outfit.

details: black top (sam & max), black striped skirt (kensiegirl), black crocheted tights (betsey johnson), black patent t-strap mary jane heels (payless).

i never post work outfits because they're usually boring. it's hard to be creative with your outfit when there's a dress code. i mean, i feel like a goth librarian most of the time. a goth victorian librarian. something like that. not that i have anything against goth people or librarians. it's just not quite the look i'm going for.

i posted this one because the people in my office said i looked nice (or rather, "adorable" and "darling". how old am i again? oh, right. 21) and i really like those tights. plus, i wore heels! yes, this is something of a big deal to me because i rarely wear them (but have a tendency to buy them anyway). of course, the day i choose to wear them is one of those super busy days where i spend 90% of my time running around the store, returning merchandise.

betsey johnson tights from tjmaxx for about $7. came with a pink pair.

but i survived. and i didn't get any blisters (for once). those heels are surprisingly pretty comfortable (and i got them for $7.50 on sale at payless! yeah! i happen to pride myself on my cheapy-cheapness sometimes).

i've been working on halloween things for the shop this week (and a headband. random, but oh well): minnie mouse ears, bear ears, and even a snow white costume that i made yesterday. i need to iron it though, so no pictures/listing yet.

did you notice anything different in those last few pictures? mmm probably not. i dyed my hair black. not that it's terribly noticeable (it is, after all, my natural hair color. or close, anyway). the last color i dyed it (dark auburn or something) was starting to look orange-y and weird up close and i was tired of it.

hey, where did the summer go?? i am so not read to go back to school just yet. i just want to lounge and read and sew and walk around the mall and sleep. is that too much to ask?

p.s. did anyone else watch 'degrassi goes hollywood'?? yes, it was predictable. yes, it was cheesy. and yes, me and my sister completely enjoyed every minute of it. i hadn't watched degrassi in a long time and had something of a catch-up week with it and my love for the silly show was suddenly renewed. we saw the new promos for next season, and frankly, i am EXCITED.
