Cruella De Vil?
Something about the combination of this particular shade of red and the black polka dots on white reminds me of that character...though this really isn't a Cruella outfit, what with the mod-ish flowers and the kitten heels and all.
This outfit was an attempt to fight back against a second full day of heavy rain. VERY gloomy! Of course, this isn't what I looked like when I was outdoors. Add umbrella, jacket, and big navy rainboots. Yes, I packed a change of shoes in my bag to work so I wouldn't have to wear rubber boots all day. Does anyone else do that?
Black top: Ann Taylor, thrifted (dollar-a-pound)
Flowered skirt: Thrifted (dollar-a-pound)
Black shoes: Joy & Peace, thrifted (dollar-a-pound)
Red belt: vintage, Ebay
Black tights: Hue
Today was a fairly basic day. Work, a group meeting, working on a project for a class, writing a bit of the thesis. I figure if I write a few pages a day for the next three weeks, I'll have a draft done in time...right? I hope so. We had a bit of a conversation at the lab today about writing these theses, and I'm glad that I've at least started a decent chunk of mine. It'll still take a lot more time, but I think I have a format and some sections done and a lot of sections begun. I tend to write in chunks and jump around a lot, especially when I'm writing a really long paper...something I'm writing will remind me of something I need to write somewhere else, so I'll go write that bit, then maybe come back to where I was or maybe have jumped somewhere else to another thought. So, keeping writing a bit at a time. Other than that, a quiet day. I've been convinced it's Wednesday all day. I can't wait for the rain to stop...should be tomorrow...
