Witchy Woman

Happy Monday! I hope you had a good weekend. On Friday night I stopped by Old Made Good to pick up my Herb Williams print. It was a screen print of the very deer I'm standing next to in this shoot. Herb was there and even signed it! I'm really excited to see what the ladies from OMG do when they move into their new space behind the fifth HairWorld on Gallatin Rd. to the left. Later that night I went to see Steve's band Scale Model play a show. They are always a fun time!
I was supposed to run a race on Saturday morning but the gross weather decided that shouldn't be the case. But rather than being a bum and going back to bed I cleaned my house like a madwoman. We had lunch with some friends and then spent the rest of the day at the car dealership. Steve got a new car! But the process takes FOREVER. I was able to crochet a few holiday presents while we were hanging around.
Sunday was pretty lazy. We did have to go back to the car dealership to sign papers and take the new baby home, but that didn't take nearly as long as Saturday. We went for a nice run in the park and spent the evening curled up on the couch.
So how amazing are these tights from Drop Dead? I've been lusting after these for a while. I think I even included them in one of my internet round-ups. Steve got me these for Hanukkah and I'm super excited about them. The tights are such good quality- thick and smooth. I wore this outfit to the car dealership on Saturday and a lady that was also waiting said to me, "You know your pants are crazy, right? Like, crazy."  I admit they are not the average car shopping attire but in no way are they CRAZY. I'm NOT CRAZY PANTS LADY.
I'm kind of in love with black lipstick lately. I've seen a few bloggers wearing it and I just love how it works with their style, especially Annika of The Pineneedle Collective (I have a total blogger crush on that girl, BTW). This is my first time wearing black lipstick out during the day, and I really like it. I know it's not an everyday thing but I'll save this baby for the weekends.
I love these earrings. The talented C.B. from The City Bird's Nest made them for me! We did an earring swap (I sent her some mint BombPoms). I love these little kitties. The color is so perfect and they match most of my outfits.
This sweet charm bracelet was another Hanukkah gift from Steve. My dude is so thoughtful that sometimes I can't stand it. I have a fairly unhealthy obsession with Twin Peaks (so much so that I named my cat Special Agent Dale Cooper) and Steve and I just started watching it together. This is my 4th time through and his first! He found this wonderful Twin Peaks charm bracelet on Etsy and it is amazing! I've never owned a charm bracelet and it's something I've always wanted. Now I get to see Laura on my wrist all day!
Oh and the shoes. I got a lot of compliments on them when I wore them for our anniversary photos. This is my second time wearing them out of the house and I'm getting used to them. I'm more steady on my feet and I'm not clumping around like a hippo. I think I'll be wearing them more often!

  1. The Twin Peaks bracelet is out. of. CONTROL. I need one of those in a bad way. Also, re: "crazy pants", What do car dealership waiting room know from cat leggings, anyway?! They're amazing. I always covet the ones on Black Milk but haven't pulled the trigger on any yet. Too cool.

    1. I love Black Milk clothing too! They are totally out of my price range. Perhaps when I'm like, in THE BEST SHAPE EVER I'll bite the bullet and get one of their body suits.

  2. My fella is obsessed with twin peaks so I started watching his DVDs a while back with him. It's so crazy weird, in the most lovable way, but so stressful to watch with a longtime fan bc I'm impatient and want to know everything right away!!!!

    1. Steve asks me tons of questions all the time. I try to be quiet and say nothing. I don't want to give anything away! I don't think I've slipped up too bad yet.

  4. Oh god, just send me this whole outfit please! I freakin love drop dead, I was contemplating buying those leggings and I wish i'd got them now. They're CRAZY AWESOME not crazy!! You should've just started meowing at the lady who said that.

    I had a mini heart attack at those shoes, how can you walk in them?? They look so stunning though.

    & I'm loving the black lipstick! Really suits you and looks perfect with this outfit!

    1. I really wish I had thought to meow! But in situations like that I just clam up. I said (probably mumbled) "but I like them" and walked away.

      You can actually walk in these shoes! You have to be careful but it is doable.

    1. Oh Annika is one of my favorites. I should have told you I was channeling her at lunch :) She is the reason why I bought some wigs and am currently on the hunt for an awesome straw hat.
