But she lived!

I was devastated to hear of Elizabeth Taylor’s passing yesterday. On the radio this morning, they played a clip of her response to the question, “what would you have your tombstone say?” At first she replied “Here lies Liz, who lived.” But then she changed her mind, purring "actually, I hate the nickname Liz. Have it say “here lies Elizabeth. She hated being called Liz, but she lived!” Awesome. She’ll be missed!

This outfit is almost entirely un-thrifted! Very unusual for me. I got this dress recently at H&M. I’m glad they were out of my size in the black and white version, because it made me try on this nude and black or navy (it’s really hard to tell) one! I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this guy a lot. I bought these red tights on the same shopping trip. I’m so glad to have finally found some! I’ve been wanting red tights since Autumn :D

I threw on my black cardi because it wasn’t quite warm enough for just the jacket, and then added my red wooden beads as an afterthought (they’re the thrifted part, haha)! 

 I wore my trusty black booties. Or shooties? I’m not sure how I feel about that mishmash word of “bootie” and “shoe.” Hmm. What do you think?

Tonight after work I'm going to the airport to pick up my dad! He was in Ontario for the past week visiting family. It was my Grandma's 85th birthday! Wow! I'm glad he's coming home, I've been buying coffee in the morning because I get up too late to make it myself. I know, so lazy. But I can't make it through the day without my coffee! Haha ;)
I felt kind of beatnik-y in this outfit! Yay. I would have driven it home with a beret, but sometimes they need to rest! Poor guys, I never let them rest ;) And yes, I do personify all my clothing and accessories! I used to do the same thing with my toys when I was little. I felt bad if some didn't get played with enough, and sometimes I'd get mad at my favourite ones for hogging all of my attention! Haha, I was a complicated child.

Oooh tomorrow I'm going to start on a skirt with my sewing teacher! Ahhhh I am so excited. Can't wait to show it to you guys! It won't be for a few weeks at least, haha. Now a shoulder-vogue pose to send you off:
