She also caught me doing THIS lovely pose when they asked which shoes I was wearing.  But I'll sacrifice my pride to show off my boots.   >_<;;;


I love scarves (something I have in common with Audrey Hepburn, my style idol).  I enjoy tying them differently.

Since the pattern on this one is of leaves (and it's an exceptionally fall-like day), I wanted to tie it in a way that reminded me of leaves too...I think I actually succeeded.   :)   (And the long dangle-y part blows around dramatically in the crisp breeze, too.)

I never do brooches, and I figured, why not do two things I never do in the same day: so LOOK: a brooch and an animal print!!!  Go big, or go home.

Though for me it was risky, it was one of the comparatively "tamest" (rrowr) outfits I've worn in awhile.  To the outsider, it was just a cardigan with a flower on it and some jeans.
