Many Colours and Sick Pants

Today was one of those days. My mojo is missing: I feel blah and dead and tired and completely uninspired. I don't even want to smile. 
A very forced smile
This made it hard to do my job, which is mostly smiling and being upbeat, but I was plagued by work-dreams last night and woke up with just...nuthin'.


  • Jacket - Danier Couture, consignment; last seen here in June with dots and dragons
  • Blouse - Spense, consignment; purchased here for $22.00
  • DIY harem pants, thrifted; first worn here (2nd outfit) in August after I turned them from palazzo pants to harem pants
  • Shoes - Grotesque; last seen here in June with grey lace

"I think I smell your mojo on the carpet."
My coworkers were pretty nice about it. Thanks to Chris for the big bear-hug.

I wanted to wear these pants once more before I pack 'em away, but they didn't ring my bell this time around, although I like the outfit overall. This is also the first wearing of this gloriously bright cobalt blue ruffled blouse, but even the vivid colour and ruffles failed to raise my spirits.

Nothing about the outfit rang my bell - I wanted to be at home in my house stuff.
"Is that your mojo at the door?'
Apparently, my pants are also "sick" which I believe in the current lexicon is a good thing, as in "Yo, those are sick pants."

The stuff:
I love these shoes, but even they did not contain enough oomph to get me out of my bluesy slump.

Minimal bling:
For a maximalist like me, these earrings are practically a crime.

A huge "thank you!" to Shelley at Forest City Fashionista for naming me one of her "8 Coolest Outfits Worn by 40+ Bloggers This Month" for this lavender and dotty outfit from a couple of weeks ago.

I'm sure I'll be mojo-ing again soon - I always bounce back. I'll have to put together something really "ME! for tomorrow to try to jump-start my mood.

  1. There is nothing worse than work taking over your dreams to the point that your mojo has gone missing! Believe me, I know the feeling. I do hope you wake up in a better place tomorrow!

  2. Sorry you're feeling blah. It's going around. Our mojos ran away to Vegas I think. Mine is not out, just on the slow burner. I know you've got it bad when ruffles don't do the trick, nor those sick phat pants - I don't even know what I'm writing! I hope you have good dreams tonight. I've been having terrible ones too. Maybe we'll meet up in Vegas in our dream and drag our mojos home again.

    1. My mojo is probably sulking in the hotel room in Vegas, that's how non-participatory it's feeling. Sick? Phat!? What are these odd words? Bad dreams again last night - what is going on!?

  3. Sorry to hear you've had such a blah day Sheila! We all have days like that sometimes. I hope it gets better and tomorrow is a big improvement for you! :)

    It's good that clothes can do that, we can use them to pick up sup a little when we are down and help us be in a better frame of mind.

  5. You're doing well if this is your "carrying on" look. When are you having the color session on your tattoo? Maybe that's the shot in the arm you need. :-)

    1. Thanks, Velma! I'm getting the colour done on Saturday - maybe you're right! That will be a real, literal shot in the arm - many of them!

    2. Fantastic! I'll think of you. I'm having a session myself on Friday night. Making progress . . .

    3. Nice! Yes, maybe I just need a little concentrated pain. :)

  6. Hope you're feeling better. We all have days like that. Sometimes you just need to crawl into your cocoon for a while to recharge. Kitty therapy also works too. Hope you got lots of purrs and cuddles from your little guy. My two kitties always make feel better when I'm feeling sad.

    1. Thank you, Sandra. I know I really need recharge time - we had a very social weekend, and I didn't get it. Must take care of myself. You're so right - kitty therapy is awesome.

  8. Aw, its awful when we feel like that. When I am Debbie downer I can barely put something together.
    Hope tomorrow your mojo is tripled ;) Hugs.

    1. I know, my inclination is to just throw on a dress and pretend I'm in pajamas. Today was better, thanks, Lorena! Hugs back.

  9. Dearest Sheila, as I'm way behind in my reading I'm pretty sure that all is back on track in your world again. I have great faith in you my lovely. Talking of lovely, I can't decide if the ruffle shirt or those adorable shoes merit the award of most lovely today. Hugs to you anyway x
