Today is my Dad's birthday. He would have been 70 this year - he was 55 when he died. For his birthday most years, we would always meet up after work and go for dinner at a pub, then go to an action movie. He would get Bridge Mix and I got popcorn. He was so embarrassing - he talked to the screen! "Oh, look out!" Hee, I remember "Cliffhanger" and "Judge Dredd." I always like to watch a trashy action movie around his birthday to remember that.
I had to plan my outfit around the new streak in my hair, right?lovely dark green and brown blazer with the copper thread gets a second wearing, my asymmetrical black skirt gets worn for the third time this month, and the very fly Fly Londons are back, last seen at Outfit #1!
This time I wore the blazer done up:
I had a long sleeved layering tee underneath (a green one, in case it peeked out a bit), and a vintage full slip for warmth and non-tight creep. Speaking of tights, these actually had a huge hole on the calf that I didn't notice until I got to work. Dang!
My hair went over well at work today. The women liked it quite a lot; the men mostly either ignored it or made a joke of it.
"Hey, what's that you've got in your hair?"
"Oh, a bird got me on the way to work. A peacock," I said. Har dee har har.
I've had a couple of people ask me how the challenge is going. Well...it's challenging! I will be doing a month-end summary and analyze how things went, and will have a vote for the favourite outfit.
Anyway, I have all these thoughts about it on a short and long-term basis. Should I be planning what month to wear what? What about a colour theme? More shoes? Less shoes? Should I purge now at the end of winter or wait till next year? What if I don't wear all the Smoking Lily I bought this month until next month? I usually wear all my new clothes right away - won't that be weird? Will I lose readers because I don't have as many "new outfits"? Will people complain? What Fluevogs should I buy in March in Vancouver? What am I going to wear out of the 30 items in this capsule wardrobe for next week's 10 item capsule wardrobe??

Vizzini was blocking me from leaving the den this morning:
He sits so funny, like a kangaroo.
