I had a somewhat hectic day yesterday, but accomplished a LOT! Most important order of business was finding some shoes to go with my dress for Ande’s wedding:
In conversation on Monday my sister steered me towards a hidden trove of treasures – a shoe store that I’d never been to because from the outside it looked like they only sold work boots, CAT boots and tree hugger sandals. Wow, was I impressed! Instead of having to make do with less-than-wonderful shoes, I had a tough time choosing from four contenders. I got these purple ones. They are insanely comfortable to wear.
Next order of bid’ness was the hair:
I am sooooooo happy with this cut and colour. Ideally it needs a couple of months to grow out into the style that I want, but it will look fabulous in the mean time (and most importantly for my Vancouver trip).
The colour’s weird on that – I had the white balance set to ‘tungsten’ and forgot to turn it back, so the outdoors photos have a weird blue cast to them that I tried to edit out. You can see the true colour of the shoes here at the company website.
And in other news, when I finally got a chance last night to sit down with my measuring tape and calculator, I think the ruffles sweater is going to be all right. So I am proceeding with the reverse waist shaping now working my way down to the hem. Cool!
