rosie the riveter, day 1




 wearing:
 striped/boatneck/buttoned blouse - American Eagle sale, $10
my most favorite jeans in the world/high waisted jeans - F21 via Rumors, $10
red patterned silk scarf - liberated from my mother's closet

makeup:
Rimmel London lipstick in Bordeaux (on sale for $1.50 at CVS!)
Smashbox foundation and concealer in Fair/Light
Clinique blush in Smoldering Plum
Revlon Colorstay eyeliner pen in Black


This outfit, however simple, makes me feel like i belong at a 40's factory somewhere, putting planes together and melting down bullet shells. Which, for me, is like my dream job. To be a riveter in the 40's. Yes.

Today is my first day on Kendi's 30 for 30: Winter Edition! She even put me on the list of bloggers doing it, i almost went to tears when i saw it. I feel like i'm getting more dedicated to this, it's just a lovely pastime.
I have all my items picked out and ready, and since all of my photos are taken inside in front of a sheet in front of my closet in my room with a tripod, i didn't bother including shoes. Is that cheating?
I have....

7 blouses
3 pairs of jeans
5 skirts
5 dresses
1 button up
3 tanks/camis
3 cardigans
1 faux leather moto jacket
2 vests

Which add up to thirty garments! I think..

Just so you know, an old pull up bar in the doorframe is easily converted to clothing storage. At least until you need to close the door.

My outfits are never going to be as amazingly effortlessly grand as Kendi's though. I'm not going to even try to one-up her.

See, here she's using 4 of her thirty. I used two.

I apologize yet again for the obnoxious and angry post. I'm not removing it, because i don't believe in such a thing, considering it truly is how i feel and what i would say to you if we were conversing in person, so NO, i'm not removing my thoughts. Just know that it's a passionate post, and spur of the moment. The mood is gone, the thoughts far from my mind. Don't worry.

  6. You look gorgeous! I love your headband. Thanks for the lovely comment on my post sweet. I have something called Crohn's Disease. It basically means i've got an inflammation in my bowel. I'll need an op at some point or something. Oh well, I have to look at it with optimism otherwise I'd cry.
