Another fashion post? What the what is going on?
It's no secret that I've been a wee bit stressed lately. It took me over a week to find time to pick up my new specs, I've needed a haircut for about a month, keep forgetting to reschedule my dentist appointment that's this week, I'm breaking out, and needed have to get in for a bridesmaid dress fitting about two weeks ago. Oh, and now I average about a 50-60 hour work week.
Not to say I'm not enjoying my new position, I am - very much so. It's challenging for sure, but every now and then I get little successes that remind me how great I could be in the position.
But I really need a haircut.
However, the one thing I can control is how I look and present myself. And lately I've been feeling like if I look put together, people will perceive me as 'put together'. So lately I've been going on shopping sprees on the aforementioned ModCloth.com, picking up new cute outfits. I figured I'd start the week off right and don one of my new dresses.
It's a pretty crappy cell phone self-shot, but the dress is going to be one of my new favorites, and the shoes are my ever-versatile rainbow wedges. Seriously. I love these things, I wear them ALL the time.
I also sported my new geek-chic spectacles. You can't see them very well, so here's a photo I uploaded to Path earlier today.
I love them, and they're surprisingly lightweight considering how thick the plastic is. And, since it is thick plastic, my coke-bottle lenses don't stick out so much.
