Hardcore Feminista

Wednesday, November 10, 2010
Oh, man.. I really can't help myself. I'm obsessed.. These Tsubo shoes are brown so naturally they match everything. They are heeled so they make my legs look longer. They are super comfy because they're Tsubo. They have grommets in the back and lace up to give it that extra bit of rocker-chic vibe without being all "Look at me! I'm a rocker chick wanna-be."

So the bookcase pics are back. I don't like doing these. I have to set the tripod up and run back and forth each time. It's so much easier to wake Chase up and make him get dressed real quick and force him to take my pictures in our magically lit hallway.

This outfit was kind of thrown together last night. It was late and I was tired. I like that I mixed so many elements together: stripes, motorcycle-chic, lace, florals, and grommets. It tells you I'm hardcore but also feminine. Yeah. That's me. (It's not. I'm a huge wimp.)

Guess what.... I made dinner tonight AND did the dishes three times today. Usually we let it pile up for the next day and rock-paper-scissors to try and get out of it. I think the last post made me realize Chase has been too good to me lately. Wait, what am I doing?

After reading your last post, I hope you realize that the whiners are just drinking the "haterade" (to quote my students) and need to get over themelves. :) Your blog is lovely and you are very funny. Thanks for sharing your fabulous- and thrifty!- fashion sense. Keep on rocking!

  19. Actually, I like this location better. The lighting that comes in from behind you in the hallway makes it really hard to see the colors and details of your outfits. Maybe there's a spot that's easier for you but also better for the quality of the photos?

  20. I love your skirt, such pretty florals.

    ReplyDelete

  34. the most perfect ensemble of course! I love alllll the elements. Including the shoesies. I feel like I wear my brown boots every single day of the year...so don't worry bout it. ;) Hey P.S. We were talking about you the other day. We meaning me and Brandilyn and her hubs. He said he knew you from back in the day. His roommate had a creepy crush on you or something. Anyway, I was like "you KNOW her?!" and then I'm like "wow. you're so famous now."

    So yeah. That's all ;)
