Floofy and Poofy

Gotta be quick today - I haven't eaten dinner yet, and I have to get up really early tomorrow morning to travel to go to L's grandma's memorial.

I wasn't pleased with this outfit - both pieces are too floofy and poofy. I should have had a slim bottom (like here) or a more fitted top (like here). Ah well, live and learn.
I got my hair cut after work - pow!
Sorry about the weird light - it's later on than I usually take my pictures.

The hair:
My ultra super-power cuff!

The stuff:
Colour for my blah mood today.

Close-up:
Yellow is my happy colour.


Be back on Wednesday night!
Blouse (Nine West), skirt (Club Monaco), shoes (Tsubos), cuff (thrifted), earrings (Le Chateau).

  1. Super happy colors. I agree the proportions are a bit off, but the colors against the silvery is pretty cool and I can see why you paired them. I love the print on the top.

  3. I actually love this outfit. It's so fun and colorful! I wouldn't have even noticed the poofy problems if you hadn't mentioned them. I'm sorry the outfit wasn't a complete success.

    Beautiful colors.
    I know what you say about the floofy but you know maybe if you belt it ?

  6. Hey, do you like those Tsubos? I heard they were kind of uncomfy ...

  7. Love your hair!

    And yellow is such a happy color. The bold bracelet and snazzy slingbacks are super-fun items.

  8. i like the silhouette a lot! top and bottom both have the same amount of 'ploofi-ness' so it looks on purpose. and you have a lot of arm and leg showing so it's not overwhelming. the only tweak i think mite be fun is a thin, drapey (chain?) belt along the bottom of the skirt waistband. to me, it's a chic and relaxed look - brava!

    i hope things go well at the memorial. best wishes to you & your family. steph

  11. That's why I like your blog so much, because you explain why things do and don't work out. :) Yellow is my happy color too!

  12. I love the gray/yellow combination. You're lucky you can wear yellow. I like it, but it makes me look like death warmed over. Great haircut!

    Thanks, SU!

    LaHdm, aw, thank you.

    Thank you, Lorena, I would have liked a belt.

    ShyGirl, thanks!

    Sal, yes, I find them very comfy. I have no rubbing or anything. They're great all day shoes.

    shybiker, thanks! Yeah, yellow is awesome.

    Steph, thank you - of course, I meant to say, "it's supposed to look like this!", haha! I like the idea of a belt - I have one that would have looked great. This is my downfall with not trying on outfits before I wear them! Thanks.

    Thanks, KayeStar! Ha, yes, a star would be perfect.

    A-Dubs, thanks!

    freeda, thank you - that's so nice of you to say.

    Jodi, thanks! Try yellow away from your face? Like...boots?

    Iris, thanks!

    Thanks, Heather! You can do lots of colours besides black, I know you can!
