the good, the bad and the ugly. but mostly ugly.

This is a throw away post, I'm just going to say that up front. There is nothing exceptionally fashion'y about it, but I thought the photo sesh was funny enough to share with you. This look I am featuring is me on an extremely plain day. A day where I set my alarm to 6 pm (that's not a typo), my hair had more powder in it than one of George Washington's wigs and I just did not want my picture taken. My husband talked me into shooting these before I headed off to work, and as you will see, he had a bit of fun with them. As he was taking the pictures I was describing to him how so often I think I am looking sexy and hot in my pictures and then I see the film. I feel like one of these memes.....





Okay, so maybe I'm not that bad, but you catch my drift... not all my pictures today are bad, but I hope you get a laugh ;)

I splurged on this palm bracelet. I spent way more than I ever would have considered, but let me tell you why. When I did the Project Style competition a couple weeks ago, Jeannie Mai had one on. I was captivated by it all day because I have never seen an accessory like it. I immediately hopped on the internet to track one down and there are almost none! Seriously, without exaggerating, I found 6, yes SIX palm bracelets in the whole world wide web! Maybe I'm not searching by the right name, but If there are only six styles available, I had to own one.

You might think this sounds superficial or cheesy, but there is a rush of adrenaline I get from owning something before everybody else. Yes, I copied Jeannie Mai, but she's the only person I've ever seen one on. What can I say, I'm a geek that way.



The picture isn't that great, but you can see what I am talking about.

And.. Nicole Scherzinger has one too, which she wore on the X Factor. I'm telling you, these haven't caught on big yet, but I think they're going too!!
