C'mon Ride It Train

Music Playlist at

I should just let Bob (attorney in the office and the coolest older gentleman you'll ever meet) pick the titles of my posts from now on.  He always has an instant commentary about my outfit.  Today I was a conductor.

So, today is the last day of the Fashion Challenge.  The challenge for today was to take a summer top and make it into a fall ensemble.  I chose this cute little halter top and used it as a vest.  

I really liked the way this turned out actually.  Since it was Friday, I got away with wearing my hat at work for most of the day.  I was told by everyone to keep it on and that it was really cute, but I felt a bit . . . unprofessional.  So when clients came in, I took it off.  

So I finally got the juevos to take my pictures somewhere I'd always wanted to take my pictures.  Longmont has a really cute little downtown.  Since most of the authors of my daily reads are off enjoying the big city for NYFW (oh no, I'm not jealous at all . . .) I wanted to pretend I was wandering around downtown New York for my pictures.  

Well, I almost got ballsy.  I got close.  I found this pretty little alley way to unleash my inner city gal to take my pics.  I'm still a baby at taking outfit photos in front of a lot of people.  

Everything was going well for me here, but as all fashion bloggers know, there are four types of people that you encounter when taking your OOTD pics outside of the comfort of your home . . . 

#1-the best kinds of spectators.  These are the people who just mind their own damn business and leave you alone completely.  Sure, they might look over with interest, but their mouth stays shut.  #2-second best kinds of people who give a polite smile or comment.  #3-creepy.  ass.  older.  nasty.  men.  GROSS!  

#4-the worst.  Jealous.  Women.  I had such an encounter with this shoot.  Here I was, feeling like a rock star.  Looking totally cute.  Found the perfect OOTD photo shoot location.  Minding my own business.  This homely looking woman walks IN FRONT OF MY PICTURE.  I thought maybe she just didn't see me.  She started out innocently enough.  "Oh, what a fun hobby," then, in a snide tone walks by with this little number, "A HOBBY ABOUT NOTHING BUT YOURSELF!!!!!!!!"  Mind you, I have said nothing to this woman during this transaction.  So, the above picture is me giving this woman what my bestie and I like to call the "blank stare."  Had I not gotten my heel caught in the cobblestone turning to say something, I would have turned to that woman and given her the old "well eff you lady!"  But I didn't.  Because I'm a lady, that's why.

  1. Oh I adore this outfit especially the blouse and the hat and I love how you took the halter and remixed it into a vest! You're definitely the most stylish conductor I've ever seen!

  2. Ohmygod, please don't let the rude lady get you down! You look adorable, and I love the idea of using a halter as a vest. Very creative. I've had the -laugh softly and look away embarrassed- people or -sit back and shut up- people, but I think I usually get extremely luck and no one has "caught" me. It helps I have a photog though.

    Thanks again for joining the challenge week this time around! Hope you stick around for Fall Trends coming up next month.

  3. Your shoes are so adorable. They fit well with this creative way of styling a outfit. Have a nice weekend.

  4. Okay...girl, i would have pulled my weave off at that bitch! I am glad I was not there. PS.....The bag and shoes were meant to be together, I love that effing bag on you!

  5. Hello! Such a cute look on you & I love that blouse the pattern is super pretty and it looks really versatile. Happy weekend hun! xo veronika

  6. What? How rude! I usually tell anyone who opens their mouth that I'm working on a project for school or something. I can't imagine anyone saying something like that though!

  7. Aw that is so sweet! Thank you for your kind comment!

  8. LOL don't worry Megan. It takes more than a mean ole lady to ruin my day (or a good outfit!). I shook it off. Let her be miserable. I don't care. Thank YOU for hosting the challenge. They are always so much fun and I can't wait for the next one!

  9. Thank you my love! She better be glad you and me were not there together! She'd be in for a major queen show down! Love you!

  10. I know right?!?!?! Who does that?!?!? I didn't even have time to respond! What a bitch! Anyway, thanks for the sympathy! LOL

  11. I would have told old Scunty Mcgee to GFY. Whatevs, you look amazeballs. You are really pulling out all the stops lately. Love the halter as a vest.




You call it your two cents, I call it priceless. Thank you so much for visiting! I read and cherish every single comment.
