In the middle of taking these photos, I realized this was totally something Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw would wear. All I needed was big, teased hair or a big bun piled on top of my head. Unfortunately, this was the day after NYE, so I wasn't exactly thinking straight. In fact, I think my hair was still a little sticky from the champagne I'd spilled on it the night before. I guess I should have also tied up my shirt and shown a little midriff a la Carrie, but you get the idea.
These fabulous pants are the most important part of my outfit and I was so excited to find them at the Goodwill Blue Hanger outlet. I didn't think they'd fit, especially all the eating and drinking (and not working out) I've been doing, but they do! Getting back into yoga is on my new year to-do list, but I haven't done much of anything since I came down with a terrible cold Sunday evening. I'm still battling it now, but I'm hoping the worst will be over by the end of the week. This is not how I wanted to start my new year!
On a more interesting note, I thrifted a bunch of awesome stuff last week that will be going up on my Etsy store in the next few days. My best friend, Jackie, came over yesterday (even though I warned here I might be contagious) to model some of the stuff I'm going to sell. She's pretty tiny, so she made the perfect model for the amazing vintage pieces I found. I'm still not sure how this happened, but while I was steaming one of the skirts for her to model, I burnt my hand right in between my middle and ring finger. Why do these things happen to me?! Now, I'm sick with a stuffy nose and a burnt hand. Oh, what a life I lead.
At least I'm unemployed. I thought that was a bad thing, but with the way my life has been going, I'm actually glad I don't have anywhere to be. But I dare you to ask me if I feel the same way in a few weeks.
