Meditating Monday

Dress - All Saints, ebay
Tights - Target
Boots - Eject

Boots weather is setting in. I've got class tonight, so I picked a nice jersey dress, tights and my favorite purple boots. This outfit also finally gave me the opportunity to pull out the tie belt I kept for myself. I knew when I pulled this purple striped tie out, it would be staying with me. Probably a good thing too since the belt came out really short.

This is the other 'mullet' dress I bought over the summer. I got the graphic one from the same seller. Somehow despite being of very similar fabric, exact same cut, exact same size - this one was made like it was for someone 4 inches taller. I wound up creating seams at the shoulder to take up both the neckline (way too plunging) and make it actually fit.

These two dresses are going to be prime layering pieces. I wore the tights because after wearing the graphic dress, I realized mini-mullets are a great design idea, but wind blows! Good thing I wore a slip then. The tights keep the jersey material 'stuck down' a bit better. These tights are on their last wear. After pulling them on they now have three runs, one big snag in the knee. Need more sock dreams!

I start my meditation today. The weather is really nice, so I think I'll do it outside. Yay! And other fun downtime stuff - Some awesome person put up clips to Shortland Street (A New Zealand Soap... I'm not a soap opera person, but I love hospital shows so I've gotten sucked into this one!) that I've been watching when I've got 5 minutes here and there.

  6. I agree with Fannie those are kick ass boots. I like how your tights echo your glasses color. I think I may have to try tights this year. I think my problem with them is that I remember them as a kid when the crotch seemed like it was always half way to my knees and drove me crazy.
