Tiny Dancer

Ode to pictures galore... we are NOT camera virgins.


As the weekend swiftly dwindles away following a saga of dinner parties, Christmas tree mishaps (ornament wars), and that old familiar work hard, play harder mantra… my narcissistic denim tendencies beckoned like the call of the wild.

In the very nearly retirement section of my closet they loitered, brooding in uncharacteristic glamour. But with a downcast feeling that pulls you from reverie… bluntly, I knew nothing else compared to the resurgence of my second-skin blue jean baby.

And about a week (or more) ago, I was pleasantly taken aback when the lovely Carrie over at Bare Style sent an e-mail and subsequently mailed over a bundle of (unexpected) amazing goodies from her store Bare Accessories. Launching a slightly embarrassing (I won’t lie) celebratory dance, it took all of a minute for the clutch, bangle, and AA leggings to baptize themselves among the legion. Obviously fated to join the ranks of my closet, I can’t wait to take them out for a spin.

With a writing project on the forefront (!) and an imminent jaunt to Colorado... I'm wicked spent and have yet to pack.

Be back soon babes...


Betsey Johnson bag. Guess jeans. Miss Me boots + dog collars. BCBG Coat. Eyeshadow cardi.

Ah, baby you look gorgeous! Have you taken some photos of your shoes yet? I would love to see them! This is so well written, I loved "we are NOT camera virgins" haha.

You look great in jeans and congrats on the new project!

I am crazy in love with that bag!

Thanks Bella, for stopping by and having fun with our posts! Doing the shoot was lots of fun indeed. :)

Btw, there is a confidence in your writing that I love. That's one quality that I aspire to have in writing. Keep up with the great posts!
Maddi said…
Thanks. Ahhhhhh Guess jeans, I am jealous. The 'popular' girls at my school have exploited the new Guess bag range that has been released at Farmers (a department store here) to death. Argh, they ruin a lot of things. Ah well, you look awesome in the jeans! So jealous of the accessories you were given, I am accessory-obsessed and my friends have labelled me the Accessory Queen because whenever I buy them presents for birthdays etc. they always end up being accessories.
leflassh. said…
I HAVE JUST TAGGED YOU :)

enjoy.

hrose said…
last again... i really need to get my act together, don't i? your whole post was so true for me, but replace comfort denim with my comfort high waisted skirt. After a weekend of craziness and frivolity i just reach for it like nothing else. freebies too! my my my you are lucky. your writing project and colorado trip are making me jealous. all that's on my horizon is work work work. blah.

And you look fabulous, of course. when have you not?
