Grey Blahs

I'm feeling better, thanks, everyone for your kind words. I'm all happily doped up on antihistamines.

However, this is just not a good outfit:
I loved this dress last time I wore it (very similar outfit), but this time I am just not feeling it. Lack of necklace? The cursed teal tights that photograph blue? The stinky boots that give me calf-down cankles?


I don't know. I hope tomorrow is better. Mom bought me some stuff in Disneyland (yay, Mom! Thanks!), so there's hope.

Dress (Mexx), belt (Jacob), tights (Hue), boots (some cheap brand), triple hoop silver earrings (don't remember).


  1. OK, you're you and entitled to your opinion, but I seriously think you're too hard on yourself, lady. Even if those tights were blue at least you didn't go black or gray ... and those boots do NOT give you cankles!

  2. i love the dress even if you aren't completely feelin' it! it's very flattering on you!

  3. I think the outfit could benefit from a nice chunky necklace. Otherwise, I think it looks great! I don't think you have cankles at all in those boots. :p

  4. AW, you look great! I did like it last time around too. Maybe you would have liked it better with a necklace or a pile of necklaces. I think the boots look great too. Glad the antihistamines are working.

  5. The boots are awesome!
    You are one hot mama, sick or not!

  6. I like the fact that the blue tights stand out. Maybe a scarf or a big necklace would balance the color, but so what -- you still look great! Understated beauty is still beauty at its finest.

    Love the boots!

  7. Personally, I think you are being too critical. You look great. Some long necklaces would be a nice touch, though.

  8. I really like this one actually. It's very runway.


  9. I think you are right about the dress missing something from the neck and maybe the colours are both too cool for your colouring.

  10. Ah, you guys are right - I am being too hard on myself. All right, the boots are fine. :D

    Sal, thanks for the smack, I needed that.

    Eednic, I love the dress too - this just wasn't one of those times. Thanks so much.

    Leigh-Anna - yeah, you're totally right. Gotta add that to my shopping list.

    Alison, thanks, yeah, a necklace or two would be better.

    Erin, thanks!

    MM, you always say such nice things, thank you.

    Tina, hi and welcome! I am a perfectionist and I'm all about the details...and I feel like I missed the mark on this one.

    Aw, thanks, Carollyne!

    Jane, that's a really good point - I've always had trouble with this shade of drey. Maybe a blazer with some colour would have helped.
