Hot Chicks

Cardigan: Old Navy
Scarf: Borrowed from Suze
Dress: Gap
Gold/silver tights: c/o We Love Colors
Bag: fake Dooney & Bourke, thrifted
T-Strap shoes: Seychelles 'Duchess'
The long weekend is over, and so are these tights. Both sad things, really. The metallic paint flaked off during the day, leaving my knees and thighs completely void of any sparkle. We Love Colors has the best tights around in regards to the quality/price ratio, but this style needs some work. That said, I got a lot of compliments/weird looks today! My sister's chickens were indifferent.

I am writing/erasing/rewriting a body-image post. I really want to it be 'just right' and to correctly convey my thoughts on the subject. It's harder than I thought. I want to be real without creeping you out, if that makes sense. Maybe it's a silly fear of rejection and getting trollish comments hurled at me. My other sister (as in not the one with chickens) has a hilarious theory that there are only 100 internet trolls in the world, and they stalk the web full-time looking for people to target. Luckily, I have the best readers. Not a troll in sight!The sunset tonight as seen from Rowena's car window...
'lovely' wasn't the word for it

  2. I can't wait to read your body image post! Mine is still forthcoming... one day. And I hope nobody trolls you, that would be super lame.

    Your scarf is amazing, btw. As are those chickens. And your tights, if they weren't shedding! Wtf is that all about!

  6. I totally forgot that I sent you that scarf... I can't wait to read your post about body image. I've had some hurtful comments thrown my way, and I think there are people who really do like to purposely hurt others feelings.

    You're beautiful. And, just remember, anyone saying crap about you can also deal with me. I've got your back!!

  7. I keep picking up the same t-shirt at target- a girl's ballet shirt with cool graphics- but it has cheap sparkles glued to it and it wouldn't survive a wash. Either spend money on sequins or lose the sparkle, people!

  8. I think it's wonderful to have you say a little something on body image. We need more positive voices out there. I think it would be unlike you to say something negative about yourself! Can't wait. I've also been cooking up some posts about body image/fitness goals. I want to have a pixie cut next year, but it ain't happenin' unless I get a little more fit!

  18. There are two kinds of people in the world: those who agonize if they hurt someone, and those agonize if they don't.

  19. These pictures are so pretty! The colors and lighting are great, and you're so cute! And the chickens look weirdly chic [no spelling pun intended].

    Trolling seems pretty rare in this blogesphere, fortunately, and I think your sister is totally correct. That would explain a lot.

    P.S. Sean and I are really into The Walking Dead now.

  22. Gorgeous sunset picture. I like how it's framed by the car window, uh, frame ;)

    That's too bad about your sparkly tights. I got a pair last year at TJMaxx (unfortunately I don't remember the brand) that have held up well. The only thing with them is that the metallic color is woven in making them a tad itchy.

  23. That las image is breathtaking! There's something about sunsets that make me feel so nostalgic. Must be the frustrated romantic in me!
