What a difference half an hour makes. Check it out:
I dragged myself out of bed and went to work - yes, I'm the person who tells people to "GO HOME" when they're sick, but I don't take my own advice. I worked for 5 hours and cleared the decks somewhat; dealt with a lot of things that would have forced me to work late had I shunted them aside for another day. I've been sleeping all afternoon, and have only just come up for air (and food) now.
I felt I needed to distract everyone from the sorryass look on my face with Stripes! and Red Shoes!
here in September 2013, and you can see how I fall back on the same patterns when I'm not putting a lot of effort into my outfits. Same cuff, same belt, mostly same colours. However, when you have a black, red, orange and tan striped cardi, there is only so much you can do with it. At some point when I was feeling useful, I did indeed sew the front button placket shut, so no "hello, here are my boobs!" moments today.
I'm down to $3.00 per wear on the cardigan, since I only paid $6.00 for it. Not bad. I didn't even realize my top and bottom combined were only $13.50 total. Cheapest outfit ever? It just may be.

here in early December 2013 with bright green (rather Christmassy).
When I'm feeling weak, I go for tough accessories:

Sweater (Papell, thrifted), concrete skirt (no label, thrifted), shoes (Marc), belt (Plum), studded cuff (homegrown vintage 80s), leather cuff (Guess, thrifted), ring (Oscar & Libby's), earrings (gift from L).
