You guessed it: I complained about the long winter and the slow start to summer, and now I’m complaining about the heat! I should have actually complained about the total lack of a spring, as that is my favorite season and what we were deprived of this year. Basically we went straight from bitter cold wind to 105.
This is my best effort to survive in such conditions. Wearing as little as is decent and becoming on a woman of my age. The strapless top is from Forever 21. Of course, they called it a corset due to its styling, but we all know it’s just a strapless top with corset styling. Two strips of plastic boning and some hooks in the front do not comprise the real thing. But it is a wonderful little top for hot days.
The skirt is from a random mall store. I think. I honestly don’t remember on this one. But it is sheer, has three tiers and drapes lower in the back (my favorite!). I usually wear pettipants instead of slips, as they are a safer choice when the wind is blowing. I even went without stockings of any kind due to the heat. That is very rare for me… The hair today is just two side buns.
Lately I’ve been noticing that Owl Mania has hit. It seems like the accessory department of just about every store currently has at least one specimen on display. I never thought I would fall victim to this trend, until this little guy begged me to take him home. What’s his great appeal, above all other owls? Simple: he looks like Prometheus. Fluffy and grey, with big eyes and stripes on his forehead. Yep, just like Prometheus!
Do you ever see things that remind you of your pets in silly ways?
