"I'm wearing my new dress tonight...Where have all the cowboy's gone?" - Paula Cole
Well, check me out! My whole damn outfit is new and from Anthropologie, and I'm loving it! I really needed a little pick me up today because it has been a horrendous week at work. As a Database Analyst/Information Reporter, the first of the year is the busiest time for me. People be trippin' for their reports! I know what you're going to say. I'm suppose to find fulfillment within myself and not use clothing as a crutch during the bad times. Yeah, you're right, but screw it, maybe some other time. For now, I'll just be shallow and enjoy my new outfit.
I'm wearing three of my new items. I originally planned to wear the belt over the sweater, but I found this sweater a little too bulky to belt, so I opted to wear it over the dress instead. I also intended to wear my saddle colored Frye boots, but at the last second I changed my mind and went with tights and booties. I'm really happy with how this outfit turned out, and I love that I can mix and match these three items with many different things in my closet. My only fear was the metallic threads in the sweater would be too shiny in the light of day, but they turned out to be just the right amount of shiny.
I've introduced Jerry to another one of my favorite TV shows this week: Deadwood. I love me a good Western, and Deadwood is so endearing with all that violence, whoring, and cussing. We were watching the second episode last night and one particular scene really struck a chord with me. A lady came down for breakfast in a hotel, and all the men stood up and removed their hats when she walked into the room. I looked at Jerry and said, "Wow, that's pretty cool." Call me old fashioned, but I really like that sort of thing. You know, chivalry and all. I know what you're going to say again. If women want equal rights then chivalry must die. Yeah, I guess you're right again, but screw it, I want to have my cake and eat it too. Hell, the way work has been going lately, I'd be cool with being a homemaker. Well, on second thought, that wouldn't bode too well for my Anthro addiction. Never mind.
