Hey, Look at This!
So who will be first to link to the new site?
My Wardrobe Improvement Goals for 2007
to fill in my wardrobe of accent tops (basic tee-shirts, dress shirts, etc.)
Mentally my wardrobe exists in three building-block-type components:
- Bottoms. Skirts and trousers. Most often, I think of shoes and socks in conjunction with these.
- Top Layers. Jackets and sweaters, blazers and sweatshirts. Thinking of these sometimes leads to considerations of outerwear, as well.
- Accent Tops. The mortar that holds outfit together. Necessarily flattering to the face, I am missing some of these bread-and-butter basics (like a white dress shirt). I guess that makes sense that my challenge would lie in this arena, since this category of clothing is considered an accessory by some.
May I suggest a goal, if you don't have one already? Invite a friend over to help you organize your closet and advise you on what to biff. Tessa is willing to come and do it for free if you pay her travel expenses, as am I.
But here's the catch: what you commit to get rid of leaves with me. No changing your mind later.
I'm the Winner!
What I won: a copy from Amazon of each of the 10 books that Darren rated as having the biggest impact upon his blogging last year. How I won: I commented on his post What's the Weirdest Thing You've Sold on Amazon? It was just a random thing that I happened to know the answer, Aura Cacia Peppermint Oil.
Now, if you were a person who attempted to look to God for direction in every aspect of your life, how would you take this development as it relates to the blog?
BTW, here's the beautiful item my hero got for me. It's frugal too!

BTW, this shirt and sweater combo is the same one I wore
Christmas Eve, with jeans and my birthday belt.
But will I wear it again tonight? Attending a game night, with the same group we were with for the Thanksgiving Leftovers Party, the big question mark is temperature. How many layers will I need? At the previous event, the wife of the pastor in charge runs just a little colder than I do. Perfect. But I don't think they will be there tonight.
My first choice is actually the outfit pictured back here. And since my hero just informed me that he knows how to work the heat in the fellowship hall, I guess I will wear what I want.
Update: What I want will be the sweater I wore this morning, topped by the jacket pictured here, which my hero just bought for me. We only paid $35 American, though. Washable suede, the XS fits (!), and it's my signature color. Yay!
This random post comes to you simply because I set my alarm clock this morning, and then actually got up. I have washed and dried my hair, made and drank my coffee, started dinner, and I'm sitting here eating my breakfast, blogging, with time to spare.
Crockpots and alarm clocks. Fabulous inventions.
