Taking pictures in the AM is hard. I am obviously one of those people who sleeps until the last couple of minutes, throws some slap on my face, brushes (maybe) my hair and gets dressed in 15 minutes. It’s how I do. It just doesn’t go well with AM pictures. But I managed OK today.
I feel like I wore this outfit last week maybe, but I am not going to check my blog before I post. I am becoming more and more aware of how often I choose NOT to wear something because I feel like I “just wore it on the blog”. I don’t really want to censor myself that way. I want the blog to document, not dictate. I want your blogs to inspire not change. So I am going to try and wear what I want to wear, regardless of if I just wore it or not.
I don’t have a slip that works with this tunic, so I go with a black fitted tank and leggings instead. And as a result, I feel as if I could audition for a musical at any moment. Just let me know. *jazz hands*
I’m still loving this handbag, and I still check her store for updates to make sure she is still making it. She is. And if you are looking for a nice everyday type bag, I cannot recommend it enough. I would only say that if she has a waterproof leather option available when you order, go with that. I find myself not carrying this one when there is the slightest chance of rain because I love it so much. Is there a treatment you can put on bags made of uncoated leather? Like the spray they make for suede? I feel like there must be. Maybe even the same spray?
I’ve got my little bag charm on it as well. I suppose I might be a tad too old for this sort of thing, but I suppose I also don’t care.
I’m still wearing my talon and my bat skull on a pretty regular basis.
I had a friend ask me the other day where I got all my little skull jewelry and I was telling her and I said “I find them very wearable for everyday.” And then after I said it I laughed. Because really, a bat skull is not considered “everyday wear” by most people. But most people are not me.
