Umm…it’s October…

October 1, 2008

WHY is it 96 degrees today?

I am officially over summer weather in the fall.  It is too damn hot.  I would like to say I’m at home relaxing while I’m writing this, but instead I’m in a state of half-perspiration; you know, that damp feeling you get all over when it’s hot as hell, but you aren’t moving  enough to create actual sweat?

So uncomfortable.

There is some relief because the air is on constantly at work.  I remembered to bring a sweater so I didn’t freeze at my computer.

Cardigan: Forever 21

Tank: Target

Bowtie: vintage via ebay

Jeans: Refuge

Shoes: Bakers

Right now, I’m on a DIY kick.  I just hacked up a long nightgown-ish dress I got at the dollar sale and made a cute and flimsy (and WAY too short for work) shirt.  Now, I’m on a mission to make myself a couple of skirts since I don’t want to give American Apparel anymore money.  Besides, they ran out of the colors I wanted online.  On the menu: this and this.  Hopefully it will go well.  If not, at least I am supporting the Legalize LA movement.

My blog’s new home is up; you should go there.

    @realtalk – Take it! Please!

    @Vanz – Would you believe I got them for $20 at Buffalo Exchange? Good, because it’s true. LOL. One of three pairs of jeans I own that don’t need altering. No, I never had any of them altered, but it’s nice to know I don’t have to do it.

    @Stefania – Sure thing, thanks! =)
