Caralyn has an ongoing dilemma about covering her neked toes on her leg with the cast on it. In order to ease the pain/swelling she often elevates her leg up on to a chair… this also means that whoever’s sitting with her gets the privilege to sit next to a foot. Now, here’s the dilemma. Which is more appropriate? Leaving her toes out or covering it with a sock? She seems to think it looks mighty ghetto with a sock and it’s not quite the same as leaving your toes out in sandals, because they tend to stare her mates in the face. Seeing that I am a genius expert in fashion (not), especially when it comes to socks (haha…I am. Seriously), I advised her it’s not as sketchy if she covers her toes with socks that aren’t pilling and balling as much. Cq: “Which one of my socks are the ballingest?!?!!?”. We had a good laugh. That’s when these “ellestrations” came to be! Cq, I say we stick to making a Papier Mâché toe cap! Oh!!! And insulate it so your toes stay cozy! Craft time : )
Class got cancelled today, so I thought I’d use my day off wisely and go on a mission to find some clothes well suited for a foot cast for the bestie. Question. Why is it that when you’re looking for a decent dress everything is so long or slutty short? You know you’re getting old when knee high skirts and dresses are too short. I understand that it’s chillier out now but c’mon…no one looks good in a sweater, shin-length dress. MaybeAlexa Chung ’cause her gams have game but that’s it. PS. Her IT book is awesome sauce. Ok, FOCUS!
THE PLAN: I wasn’t overly successful at Old Navy, Gap and Forever(never)21 the other day. Everything I liked was over budget or one teenie tiny thing was wrong with it. I hate that. Today’s hopeful cheap (and I mean cheap) finds will consist of JoeFresh, H&M, Winners and Target. I’m rocking my leopard kicks and my new fave grey wool cap for shopping luck and comfort.
Things to keep in mind: Work attire, things to wear with leggings and tights, more colour, pref long sleeve dresses, tights on sale that could afford a clipping in one leg, no more stripes…unless…no. No more. Can we (speaking to cq seeing that we have zero audience) agree we need to take a break from stripes? Polka dots? Meh. Another obsession of mine is animal print. A girl can never have too many animal print… well, in absolutely everything. Meow!
THE RESULT: Found a handful of stuff on the sale racks; not one piece of clothing cost more than 20 bucks. I’m up for any cheap deal challenges if anyone dares to ask…Just thought I’d put it out there. My main motive was to try and find versatile pieces, so that Cq could wear more than once without her office folks judging her outfits. I came across some skirts, one wool with super cute zipper and leather detailing and two others with a generous amount of stretch yet still warm enough for winter. Who doesn’t want a over sized knitted sweater, right? Bought one of ‘em too. Grabbed a silky animal print dress that could be dressed up or down, a dolla fiddy belt at H&M and THE blue nail polish Cq’s been on a quest to find in years. I even managed to slip in a pair of sparkly silver ballet flats for yours truly. Seeing the compadre genuinely smiling at her new found goodies assured me I was quite successful!…until next time.
THE REWARD: Winded down with several glasses of red from Cq’s seemingly never ending stash which went hand in hand with Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Hot Rod (Holy Sh!t, it’s so effing hilarious). We cried a couple tears watching Master Chef Kids…Never have I ever seen such incredibly talented, unnecessarily stressed out kids and the cutest little human that looked like Al Pacino. Wow. Speaking of chefs, Andy made us pancakes and bacon for din din :). What can I say? Life is Good.
How’s that for a first blog post? Minimal sequence and flow with a touch of randomness haha! Whutevuuur..
