Dress Up, Dress Down

I'm back to work from my break and will be working about 6 days a week and a couple of nights most weeks. Whew! I won't be posting every day as you may have noticed. I'm going to try to be more organized and prepared overall so the hectic schedule doesn't get to me like last time.

One of the nice things about my jobs is that it gives me a reason to dress up for a few hours. Today I taught a History of Costume class at FIDM.
Jacket-(yard sale)

I have no idea what this pose is about. I started getting antsy and silly. I know, what? Me?

This dress is great because it's so incredibly versatile. If you need a dress you can do a lot with, get a sleeveless sheath in a neutral color. I have also worn this dress with a blouse under it which looks great. The jacket is one of my faves. I got it at a yard sale for  $1. Sweet!!!.

When I got home I wanted to be really comfortable so I put this on. The jacket is one of my Goodwill finds from last month but it's been too hot to wear it until now. We actually got some rain which is a freaking miracle out here (I know, it's rude to complain about having sunshine all the time but I love rain)


Why, yes, I went to Harvard. Well, I didn't go there exactly. I did see Good Will Hunting like 30 times if that counts.

My daughter loves taking pictures of the top of my head.

I found this jacket in the men's section at Goodwill and I was so excited. It's exactly what I've been wanting. I looked at the label briefly and I thought it was from Hollister or something like that. Then I got home and looked more closely.

It's the real deal, yo!! Neat, huh? See that little curled up label on the bottom? It says Made In China. Does that seem weird to anyone else?

ps I realized I could link this up at Silverstyle's Trending Through th Decades-Boots Edition so I did. :)

Good Times

I had some good times the past few days. Friday I got to see my BFF who is only back for a few days from New York. I'm still getting used to my new IPhone but loving the Instagram app.

It can even make a new baby look like an old-timey baby. (That's her baby)

Saturday night my stand-up comedy students had their showcase. I went up at the end and did 10 minutes. It was a blast. I haven't performed in like 2 months except on my birthday. I really needed that.

Then I went to the other club (there are two clubs) because a friend was having a birthday show. They gave me 5 minutes there, too, and it was fantastic. I even got some nice compliments from a couple of young girls on my fashion style. I blame it all on my new skinny cargo pants.

This photo is a little fraudulent because I didn't perform in this room. I performed in the other room. (there are two rooms) The stage is a mess because the headliner that night does juggling and has props and things. Ha ha. It looks like my apartment. (That shirt is actually black by the way)

Top-(Nine and Co)
Sweater-(gift but I think from Target originally)
Old Navy pants-(Goodwill)
Sofft shoes-(Marshall's)
Necklaces-(vintage, FIDM Scholarship Store)
BTW Today is Monday and even though these are pics from another day I am going to try to get away with including them on Patti's Visible Monday link up. Check it out.
