Late with the Layers

Mimi with Aesthetic Lounge started a feature called Many Layers Monday (see her button on my sidebar).


Dusty rose tank, BP. (Nordstrom) - Sheer black floral ruffle blouse, Romy - Coral ruffle jacket, Caslon (Nordstrom Rack) - Black skirt, Nine West (Nordstrom) - black zipper-bow ruffle flats, Report (Norfstrom Rack)

I wore this today so I could link up with Many Layers Monday. Yes, I know it's Tuesday but remember I run on (everyone together now) Filipino time. I wonder if "time" should be capitalized since it is a documented phenomena and quite possibly an official name. Happy Hour is capitalized. I suppose Filipino Time should be. I'm not saying they are one and the same. I'm not saying they're not.

The Desi. I'm quite sure I'm saying, "Whatever, who cares?" regarding whether or not any pictures would be worth posting. I'm also saying that because it's quite possible our neighbors across the street viewed our photo session.

The Desi in its truest form. Yes, his finger is in both pics.

Fallback Girl



Petite Fashion Challenge #8 is here! Gracie with Radiator Sessions has graciously offered to host, and her challenge is "Spinning The Favorite."

Here is a snippet of the challenge requirements:
"Thus, the challenge will be to take a "go-to" outfit, put a spin on it by styling it in a different way but still keeping a couple of essential components."

To read more, visit her blog!

(Disclaimer: I wrote the following part of my post before I discovered that an Executive VP with my company has seen my blog. Why the disclaimer? You'll see!)

I was making this harder than need be because I couldn't think of my fallback outfit. Then I realized what I would wear everyday if I could--jeans! Well, I can wear them everyday to work but for the last year we've been on the same floor as many company "big wigs"* so I try to dress up more. The most I'll wear 'fashion denim' is twice per week.

I also fall back to my ankle boots when I wear jeans because I feel more secure in them, more balanced. So, that's what I changed up for this challenge.

I haven't worn these platform stilettos since the last time I featured them on this blog.

I don't know if I executed this challenge correctly, but I had fun anyway! I suppose my different expressions also changed up my look.

*Do you think higher ups mind being called "big wigs"? Perhaps they prefer "higher ups"? Or, maybe they just prefer being called by their names? I don't know if the same EVP will look at my blog again or even this post, but if he does perhaps he will let me know.

And now for "The Desi"

What's Up, Pussy Cat?

I passed on this top when I saw it the first time. I had opted to get the love birds top that I wore a few weeks back and figured that I had satisfied my print of animals 'want'.

My little Augie chopped off my head

Then I saw this when we were at the Portland Nordstrom Rack. How could I pass up 50% off $24.97 and no sales tax?


The kitty cats are upside down. I thought cats always land on their feet? Maybe these ones have toast strapped to their backs, buttered side up? Get it? Anyone? Anyone? Purrfect!

Breaking Things

Notice anything missing behind me? Just look at pics from the post before last.


Our neighbors decided to take down the hedge separating their front yard from ours. Lovely. Would have been nice to know their plans.


The posts behind me just went up today. If they had communicated to us, maybe we would offer to put up the fence since my hubsters is putting up a whole new fence in back. He just hasn't gotten to their side yet. We'll probably still offer since they are older. Just would have been nice to have had advanced notice. I'm pretty sure the hedge was fully on our property. Whatev.


Now that I've got on my shades, I'm gonna rock out. (Dude, I look pregos but I'm not)


Return of "The Desi"

The Desi again

So glad Desi brought his air-filled guitar to the photo shoot. Sure beats air guitar.

Now I shall break things. Just like the poor broken hedge.
