If I look a little rumpled, especially in the winter when it's rainy/snowy/windy/freakin' cold, it's because this is what I look like mere minutes before:
Ah! It's Crazy Walking Lady! Believe me, no one messes with me when I'm in transit.
Toque to keep my ears warm, hooded child's snowboard parka with kazillions of pockets, lined weatherproof pants to keep the rain off my legs (and absorb splash from the cars), scarf, gloves, and hoodie and t-shirt underneath it all. Plus, my Zen Creative mp3 player for tunes, and of course, my backpack (complete with reflective stickers so I don't get hit by a car when it's dark out.). The strange bulge on my body is the container from my baby carrots - it is not my boob.
This is what's in the backpack (I've removed my Ginormous Lunch Bag):
Bag o' shoes and bag o' clothes:
And here I am, all dressed in today's outfit:
Strangely, my coworker Nicole wore nearly the identical outfit to this yesterday. I don't love this look on me, but I like playing around with the menswear look. Plus, I adore these pants...hmmm, my legs look very muscly in these too.
The accessories & the boot:
I love this necklace, the unevenness of the two sides, the thick chain, the black suede half. I talked a friend into buying it because I loved it so much (and thought it would look great on her), but she never wore it and eventually gave it to me. So nice - thanks, Cindy!
I'm not listing my outerwear brands. If you want to know, ask.
Shirt (Bianca Nygard), vest (Oxmo), pants (Club Monaco, consignment), boots (eh, some cheapy brand), necklace (Nine West, gift from Cindy), crytal stud earrings.
