My rash of bad luck continued today. We had some snow last night -- not a lot, but it made a mess of the roads. And what made a bigger mess was the wind. I drove to work, and I was fine -- but then I pulled into the business park. There is an area on the drive where you go downhill and around a curve to the right. Well, instead of going to the right, my car kept going straight. Great. So I hit the curb -- shouldn't be that big a deal. It wasn't like I was driving very fast. Except now my wheel is wobbling. So then it became an ordeal. Call the insurance company: get a rental car. And my poor lil tank is still sitting in the parking lot at work. I hope it's ok tonight.
So, here is today's outfit:
should my vest be zipped up?
or left open? Should my pants be tucked into my boots? or should my pants go over my boots?
t-shirt, Basic Editions (Kmart)
vest, G.H. Bass & Co.
pants, Victoria Secrets
boots, thrifted (no brand, but I love them :-) I always wanted a pair like them, and they were a steal!)
Esprit Cabane makes a lot of ornaments that I have seen before from different materials, so they have a completely different look to them. These very simple, but sweet, heart ornaments are made out of cardboard. You can find the directions here.I think they would be pretty if you used leftover red ribbon from Christmas.
They also make these stars out of plastic water bottles.
And I've seen these ornaments made from old Christmas cards, but not aluminum cans -- I bet they look nice.
Today was the office Christmas / potluck lunch. Lots of good food! Too much good food. I wanted to dress up a little since it was Christmas, and this is what I was able to pull together. Not bad considering I had a late night last night, and then had to get up early and cook this morning.
I really liked this outfit. I have had the skirt for ages, but I have never worn it this way before, and I was really experimenting with my jewelery. I wasn't too keen on the boots -- I need taller ones.
t-shirt -- Liz Claiborne (Lizsport)
cardigan sweater -- thrifted (no tag, very soft :-)
skirt -- Briggs
boots -- Vaneli

I have to say that this is one of the best pictures so far! I thought that I was going to hate it, and ...
Just saw the cutest necklace on Ecouterre, they called it a trashion statement. How cool of a word is that?! I'm really inspired to do something with my pile of bottle caps now, especially now that I have a friend at work saving them for me.
This necklace is part of a collection created by Vicki Sarge, and is made from recycled bottle caps on leather cord. You can get yours here.
