Ensemble du Jour

The Outfit
Friday's outfit may be one more reason why I need to buy a full length mirror. I know. I know. I can’t believe I don’t have one either, especially since my favorite part of my day is staring at the reflections of my shoes wherever I can. And you can't do that in a bathroom medicine cabinet mirror.

Regardless, I need a full length mirror and I’m going to try and get one or make one before the month is out. Not just because last week I wore a tunic length sweater to work as a dress. I’m short but, I guess I’m not THAT short. In my defense, I did wear tights with it, but I was wearing heels too. I seriously didn't think it was that short, but I guess I should have gotten a clue when the husband said “Hey sexy” right as I was walking out of the house.

Anyhoo, coming back to Friday's outfit. The elements themselves seem tame enough - my Gap jeans, the Libertine skull v-neck sweater vest and a Libertine cardigan in navy and green, neutralized somewhat with tan Mizrahi driving moccasins.

All in all it doesn't seem to bad, right?

Yeah. Wrong.

These colors were totally out of control against my newly brighter hair. I felt like Jack Nicholson as the Joker in Batman. I really need to start giving myself more time to thing about my outfits and get ready in the morning. I got to work an when I saw myself in Ladies' Room mirror I was like "Holy Crap! I look like a demented clown dressed me today!"

Yeah, that sweater is going right in the Goodwill pile. It's cute enough, but on me look horrendous! I promise I won't be wearing that combo again.

Hey, send me the sweater if you don't want it! I'm not sure if you're talking about the vest or the cardigan, but I love them both!
