Royal Hue


________This is what I wore to go grocery shopping, 'cause I'm one of those people who dresses up when they go to fancy places like Walmart. I wasn't entirely sure about this outfit, but when one of the cashiers told me she liked it, I felt like a supermodel. Rock on, cashierlady. Rock on.

________Do you ever feel like you don't remember how to pose? Because that's how I felt today. I felt so unoriginal-- every pose that I made felt the same as the last, kind of like how every tadpole looks the same as other tadpoles. No distinction at all. That was me today: a tadpole, tadding and poling along. Ah, well! At least my photos came out fairly nice (and I did manage to find some distinguishing poses in the lot). I feel like they have been much sharper lately ever since I adventured into using manual mode. But maybe it's just me.

________My parents got me these boots as a giftie for making the President's List my first semester. They combine a crazy 1980's shade of royal blue, a western style, and a metal sliver at the toe. I don't think you can get much more tacky-- err, fashionable, than that. Totally spunkeriffic, yo. They are vintage and were purchased from Etsy, the virtual land of magical things. I'm pretty sure that Etsy is the internet's secret Utopian society; that, and it's probably the only place where you could find a unicorn.

I love that the cardigan looks like a blazer. And it's a great color. Yum. Those boots are...interesting, aren't they? I think I like them, but I had to think about it for a while. At any rate, you pull them off well!

You should always dress up for the supermarket, especially in blue cowboy boots.
