full a' vinegar and glitter

(Hey, she’s a piratey soul)


S’right, I’m a sickpants right now. I don’t know what it was that set it off, but yesterday I ended up extremely ill. Of course I couldn’t find any saltines in a five-block radius, so I’ve been sipping flat ginger ale and contemplating nachos or something. For the salt, right? Whatever – not important!

I’ve already said that there are a lot of things I’m unhappy with lately. How I look and feel is a big one. I’ve already mentioned that I’m unhappy with my weight and fitness level, and it’s going to be slow going. We’re about to start into the busy school photo/Christmas season at the studio, and I’ve been told to expect full-time hours every week. This will be the first time in several years that I’ll be working full-time, and it scares me that I might not be able to cope. Worrying won’t help me, so I’m trying to concentrate on the full-sized pay-cheques that will be rolling in as well. I’m really excited to slowly rebuild my wardrobe. I lost a lot of clothes in the fire, and a couple more items to my moron cats.

So that’s what I’ve been concentrating on while I’m holed up on my couch with ginger ale. I’ve been collecting “inspiration” photos for a while. Mostly from lookbook or the like, so I can really THINK about clothing I’m buying before I go for it. I need basic stuff, and pieces I can mix and match and layer and ahhhh.

For example. I need:

• at least one more pencil skirt – preferably in a bright colour, since I already have a nice gray one;

• a pair of FLAT, plain-coloured, knee-high boots;

• a black cardigan;

• a neutral or dark-coloured belt;

• several pairs of THICK (wool?) tights – black, textured, and a bright but easily matchable colour;

• nice flat shoes that I can both wear to work, and out;

• a dress or two that follow the same rule as the flat shoes;

• a white button-down, long-sleeved top

Plus a sweet pair of red heels, and at least one plaid top. But those are more want than need, ha. There are tons of other things as well… bags, vests, tall socks, basic tops, sweaters, so on. I also need a winter jacket, boo.

So that’s what I’ve done today. That, and drink ginger ale.
