Today's verification gem comes from the smashingly leggy Gracey, of Fashion for Giants (a serious contender for best blog name ever, am I right?). Not only is she an awesome foot taller than I am, she's an Oregon girl, too! Yay! Oregonians should have some sort of collective state nickname, don't you think? Oregonians is just plain boring. I'm talking something with a little pep. Something we can shout out in bars when the Ducks or the Beavers win, or when some girl from Oregon gets crowned Miss America. Hey, it happened once. I'm taking suggestions. Be nice. Nothing about meth labs or dampness or organic free range chickens, if you please.
So, you may have noticed in my last few posts that there was something living on my head that very closely resembled a baby Cthulhu. I'm glad you didn't say anything. It might have heard you, and then we all would have been doomed. Just kidding. That was my hair. I'm growing out my natural color, and it has gotten very big and very unruly. But! Last night I had something done about it, by a genius friend who KNOWS hair. Seriously, she felt my skull up, told me exactly where my silver was gonna come in (Is it weird that I'm super excited to have my grey hair back? Wheee!), and then razored my hair to give me more control, without sacrificing length, and camouflage that weird little flat place on the back of my head. So. Exciting. I could not be happier. And then we went to Shari's and reminisced about high school crushes and I ate food that is definitely not on my super-specialized holistic diet list of beneficial foods. Whoops! I'm making up for it by going out for sushi and miso soup and wakame salad and all kinds of Japanese goodness tonight, followed by the Valentine's Day Heavy Metal Lady's Night at East End, with my bfffffff (Sorry kids, this was supposed to post yesterday, but....my internet was down. Again. Dear Frontier Wireless, can we get on that? Anyway, we had a wickedly good time, as you can imagine!).
I decided that nothing says "saucy Valentine's Day getup" like leopard on leopard on leopard, with BOOTS. Can you believe, this serendipitously matchy-matchy trench and dress are by two different labels, and I found them on different thrifting expeditions? Ha!
