After a few attempts and a YouTube video later, I was able to master the bandana in my own hair. Even better, I mastered it for wear in public, not just around the house to cover up my frinkly morning just-liked-by-a-ninja-cow ‘do. If you are wondering why this was such a victory, hair is one area I lack talent. My poor kidlets are screwed if they ever want more than a basic braid, piggys, or a ponytail. Now, if they want to learn how to do a cat-eye or smokey eye? That I can do.
So this morning while getting ready for work, I was feeling spicy and anxious to try out my new (borrowed) idea. I was feeling like a bad ass Rosie the Riveter all day long. Of course, no day is complete at work with out new clothes coming in for me to drool over and be inspired by. You can imagine, today was no exception. When a new striped jacket appeared at the store, I was absolutely in love. I quickly shed my green Prairie Underground hoodie (for those who know me and my love of my Prairies, this is not something easy for me to do) and donned the new jacket, making the old outfit look kind of sad. Sorry ‘bout it, Prairie. I still love you though. The fit of the ponte jacket was amaze-balls, giving my shapeless waist a shape! Who would have thought it was possible? Plus, I was loving the fun vintage feel to the outfit, the hair and the makeup.
Now if only Hubby would take me off the spending hiatus. I think I have been good long enough!
