it's a bird, it's a plane, no it's ... dhoti pants





the look:

top - old gap
infinity cardi - old jacob
jacket - old anthropologie
dhoti pants - lululemon
hat - old nine west
boots - old, from an army surplus store

the tale:

the problem with undertaking a new task and being confident of being successful at it is that, when one is not successful, one finds oneself quite disappointed and even angry at oneself for not being successful. i haven't given up yet, but i have adjusted my expectations. on the plus side of life: i love these new dhoti pants that i got about a month or so ago at lululemon. i turned them into a sort of bubble skirt today. also, i managed to locate a dear creatures dress from last summer's collection that i missed getting last summer ... in an online store that ships to where i live. now begins the long wait for its arrival. i briefly toyed with the idea of getting a dress from dear creatures' current collection, but, in the end, i have decided to wait for the arrival of the fall collection. oh, and it would be remiss of me to fail to mention that some new (fall/winter) fluevogs have arrived in my city's fluevog shop and one pair is a pair that i put on my wish list when i first saw them on the flueblog. you know what that means, don't you? finally, i had the opportunity to wear a couple of different looks today, playing with an infinity cardi and a jacket, thanks to the cooler weather. some might consider having to wear a jacket and a cardi in july not a good thing. but, for me, the outfit with the cardi and jacket is the sort of outfit that i would be content to wear year round.
