I'm sporting the other cowl I made- this one has a few holes and dropped stitches in it but you only know this because I told you just now :)
Hope you're having a great day! What was the highlight of your day today?

Seriously, I've always got some rant about pants, me n pants just don't mix all that well. So these ones. YES they are one of the most expensive pairs I have ever bought. Got talked into it yes I did even though I know Jodi's fashions rules say "don't wear pants with front pleats" but I bought them anyway. Why? Well, long legs, not floods. High waisted, slimming for the waistline. Dutch-made- high quality and very stylish. All this and more.
So when I wear them I am too hot, itchy, all wrinkled looking and look like I have a puffed out stomach. WTF. Can you say sucker? I know I should just stick to skirts but I keep trying...
How was YOUR Tuesday:) ??

Happy Super Duper Weekend to all of you!! Hope its a great one.
QUESTION: Any recommendations for good camera remote controls? I keep breaking mine!! The one I have communicates with the camera but then is fiddly to actually tell it to take the photo! URGH why do I have such bad luck with these stupid remotes (roll eyes!!).

Who do you want to be today?" and its fun because it gives you ideas for how to dress in certain styles. For example they give ideas for : Sexy Bombshell (inspired by Marilyn Monroe or Scarlett Johansson) ...Ice Queen (cool perfection like Nicole Kidman or Grace Kelly) ...Rock Chick (wild and strong like Debbie Harry or Amy Winehouse) ...Sultry Diva (think Ava Gardner or Jerry Hall) ...Stylish Sophisticate (Coco Chanel or Anna Wintour) ...Androgyne boy-girl (Hillary Swank or Grace Jones) ...Boho (a la Kate Moss or Sienna Miller) ...High Maintenance (Victoria Beckham or Eva Longoria) (taken from review on amazon :)
If you are looking for ideas to switch up your wardrobe this book is kind of fun for that. I particularly like the BOMBSHELL section :)
What was your dressing style today?

AND check out my burgundy cowl. I made this myself. My second knit job. Well, I should say its the second cowl I have made. The other thing I learned how to knit is those cotton dishrags. Yes, I am just so crafty. Step back Martha Stewart. I'm here :)
What are you crafty at making?

On another note I don't think I'll pair these boots with this skirt again, I think they're too clunky for a pencil skirt, probably would have been better with tighter fitting boots or some nice shoes. Oh well. Note to self for next time.
What is your favorite way of getting to work (walk, bus, car, bike, etc??).

As for this weekend I'm painting the living room and even just doing the first coat on the walls the cats have walked through the paint and made paint paw prints ALL over the living room. When I tried to grab them to wash the paint off so they wouldn't try to lick it off and get sick, they ran faster and made even more (and even some skid marks) prints everywhere.
Note to self. Lock up cats before painting :( hah hah its all good fun though. Chat later!

Here's some examples of the kind of Ralph Lauren-ish stuff I like. Maybe I should try to recreate a few more of these looks:
I don't think I'd hang around with my friends like this but I would weather that skirt and leather jacket :)
How bout you, any designers or style type that naturally attracts you (whether you wear it or not is another question?)
