“That’s a Cute Outfit”

As I was leaving my husband said “That’s a cute outfit”. My husband makes a point of telling me that I look pretty every time I get dressed. And I love him for it. But when he switches it up, I know it must be true.

Last week at work our AC was broken, so it was really pretty nice in the AM, since Texas tends to over chill our indoor air all summer. But by afternoon it was super hot and we were all very cranky. And we took to wearing little summery things like this with no cardigans.

Well, the AC worked today. Really well. And it was freezing. I ended up wearing the trench coat I keep at work as well as draping a sweatshirt over my legs. I mean it was Arctic up in there.

I got this dress off the clearance rack ages ago. I had no idea at the time I’d get so much use out of it. It works all 4 seasons depending on the layers and it’s held up really well.

“It’s funny. Because it’s a razor blade…and it’s on your wrist, see?” I was well and truly amused with myself for coming up with this one, just so you know. I know it’s a bit dark, but I also think it’s adorable. I can’t wait to add a couple to the shop.

My new polish is Urban Decay’s Bruise. It’s a fabulous purple with green shimmer.

My nude polish for those that asked, is two Sally Hansen colors.

I adore that dress. So pretty. I will be taking one of those razor blade bracelets when they show up in your store!

I wish my husband cared about fashion, just a little bit. At least he's complimentary anyway!

WendyB said...

Yep, your husband was right!

I hope you tell your husband how handsome he looks, too. I try to remember to do that for mine!

If it wasn't a little dark, it wouldn't be nearly as cool. That's part of it's charm. I LOVE IT!!!!!

The dress is cute - the bracelet won't be for everyone - I like it though!

The razor blade bracelet reminds of me of a shaving accident I had when I was 15 or 16: I was shaving in the bathtub, set the razor on the edge of the tub because I needed to grab something that was outside the tub, and in reaching out, rested my wrist right on the face-up razor. You can guess the results. Dumb, dumb, dumb. It wasn't as bad as it could have been, but very embarrassing...

"What's with the bandage?"
"Um, I accidentally slit my wrist in the bathtub."

I absolutely LOVE that razorblade bracelet.It is really cheeky and dark,which makes it perfect in my books.

I've wanted to ask you if you could possibly sometime do a post about your different tattoos.Like why you chose them,what they mean to you,etc.I'm really interested in that.

PS.the dark nailpolish is to die for!
