Because of this glorious excuse, I am posting an outfit of the day from when we had a few short days of Spring preview weather. I'm quite sick of winter so as soon as it hit the 70's, my House of Holland suspender tights flew onto my legs (Literally, they flew across the room onto my legs. You should've seen it.) and I flew across my living room to set up my new tripod. See? I'm getting better! I finally used a tripod to record an "outfit of the day". *curtsy*
If you follow me on Twitter, you will know that the day I actually wore this outfit I had on my black Theory Gratti blazer which is a cuter, more cropped fit than what I'm wearing in this video but it's currently at the tailors being altered. As I rarely wear any outfit more than once, I wanted to record this outfit concept before it flew (Again? What's with all the flying?) out of my mind completely so please forgive the slouchy boyfriend-ish fit here!

So there's also a bit of a story about this outfit. I was obviously feeling a bit self-conscious because I tend to be pretty conservative and not wear anything this risqué to work although I work in a creative department that can "get away" with wearing more fashiony or casual wear. On my way to lunch, I passed one of the directors who I saw give me an eye and then the Vice President of my department walked past as well while I was going up the stairs. Inside I was like OH NO DID I WEAR THE WRONG THING but shrugged it off and got in line for my food.
A couple minutes later I felt a tap on my shoulder from the VP.
He stopped me and said, "Can I just say--thank you. THANK YOU! You look fabulous today. Thank you. Thank you."
Needless to say, I was thoroughly embarrassed and flustered and flattered and had a big grin on my face for the next two hours. XD He even went to my manager and talked about my outfit and that he probably embarrassed me. Eeeeeeeeeee~
A couple more just 'cause. Here I am showcasing my grump face. I was having camera troubles. Lol.
And an example of why remotes are way better than camera timers, especially when you can only find the 2-second setting. MEGA FAIL!
Anyway, I hope you guys have a lovely day filled with people giving you lots of compliments that you can accept a little more gracefully than I was able to. Hermmm. Ahem. >_<
