I Can't Help Drink You Up Cause You're My Happy Hour.

I know it’s slightly off topic, but my copy of Cheryl Cole’s (Girls Aloud) solos CD “3 Words” finally came last week, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I love it. I had read mixed reviews and the glowing reviews were mostly from hard core Aloud fans. But I really love it.

It’s a really solid album. Not quite R&B, not quite pop. It’s Pop & B. ha!~

Anywhoodle. I got dressed. Again.

I like this outfit a LOT, but I would (will) like it better if (when) I had my grey jacket. I ordered this same jacket in grey from Target.com about 2 weeks ago, but it’s on backordered. I cannot wait to get it. I had Pilalex get the same jacket and my hope is that we will show up in them on the same day soon. Because that always amuses me.

I still fold the waist band of this skirt over pretty much every time I wear it to shorten it several inches, but it works so well, and is so easy I am not going to bother having it tailored for now. I’ve been saying “for now” for about a year, by the way, so I’m pretty sure “by now” means “ever”.

The wearing the belt backwards for more impact was a trick that a couple of the girls at the swap showed me. I was trying to make a too-sweet for me dress work (it just really didn’t) and they had me try this. It may not have worked for that dress, but I did tuck the trick away for later use. And it looked great in pictures, and would have worked for a club, but I have to admit that I changed belts before I left. These looked good but felt restrictive when I sat down, and I sit pretty much all day, so I changed into something with elastic.

I put my little bat skull on a longer chain last night, so it is almost the same length as the bird skull. I love having a jewelry kit and the skills to make changes, because I get bored pretty fast. And because change is fun! And I can always change it back.

I *really* have to remember to look for that jacket at Target. What size did you get it in?

That is a great outfit... too bad about the belts being uncomfortable because I love them!

I am tempted to buy those same booties, but am worried that because they hit above the ankle they won't be as easy to wear. You seem to quietly disagree with my concerns! You always find great ways to dress those up! Do you have any complaints on the shoes?

Kayla,

Mine are too high and they KILL by 3 PM. HOWEVER the version in stores now is a lower heel and more comfy. I say do it!~
