Like O, Like H

My apologies if this blog post sounds off...While taking pictures of my shoes, I placed the camera on the ground, set the timer, and swiftly wacked my head on the underside of my bathroom sink as I was rushing up to pose. Everything's a little fuzzy now. Good going, Jacobs.

Can you tell how excited I am about spring? Oh, you can! You say I went a bit over board? And what's that? Oh, come on, I do not look like the Philadelphia Ballet Company crashed into the floral convention in a massive accident that's being described on the evening news as "tragically delicate"! Yeah, ok, maybe. Whatever.

Little do you know, this skirt is actually a dress. I absolutely adore getting multiple functions out of garments. I actually hardly ever wear this as a dress though because, to put it bluntly, I look like a ballerina. Not like the dress is ballet inspired. It honest to god looks like a tutu, backless and all. Now the question is why I was so attracted to this tutu. I'm not really sure, but I've had it for about four years now and have only worn it two times other today. And one was as a Halloween costume. Guess what I was. I'm feeling this look is a bit more street appropriate, as I'll need to traverse Passyunk Ave tonight to achieve my goal of getting loaded on margaritas at Cantina Los Caballitos. Happy cinco de Mayo!
