Simply Irresistible


Once again, I rocked the manly hairdo. I should just buy red lipstick and become a Robert Palmer video extra.

Hm. Not quite....

I am addicted to the belt... Not love.


dress - TJ Maxx
top - the same!
belt - thrift
tights - probably TJ Maxx, as well
shoes - the Gap Outlet


This isn't my favorite dress in the whole world but it was $7. How could I resist that?

Sometimes, I wear my glasses. Usually, this occurs when my stupid contacts are bothering me. The first day I wore them to work, my boss asked me if they were real. Who wears fake glasses?




Nothing like a weird-smelling wool cape to keep you warm!

weird-smelling wool cape - I got it at a church yard sale.
sweater - TJ Maxx
dress - Kohl's
tights - I think I got them in London, in a shop in a Tube station.
shoes - Mustard Seed Boutique in Cincinnati

Unfortunately a lot of people do. I know someone who wears them sans lenses and proclaims them "scratchless".

I think you look cute with your glasses on. Oh and for 7 bucks that dress is great. I like the colors on you.

Yeah, I have a friend who wears almost-fake glasses. Male, no less, and not generally that fashion-conscious. He just thought they'd make him look cleverer and so pressured the optician into giving him an eye test, and getting him the glasses even though his prescription is so weak they wouldn't normally bother. So they're technically real, but he doesn't actually *need* them.

Wearing glasses when you don't need to seems simply crazy to me. But then again, who am I to be judging anyone?

Jesse - Hah! That's hilarious!

Hurricane - Thanks! I'm still not totally sold on that dress but your kind comment will keep it in rotation.

Anonymous - Perhaps your friend is on to something... I really do think glasses subconsciously register in our minds as "studious."

Great outfits! I especially love the one on 1/12 and your "manly" hair-do. I think you would've rocked bright red lips.
