Sunglasses

Going Golightly

Today, I channeled my inner Audrey when I chose my daily threads.

Black, classic cut dress. Pearls. Red nails. Red lips. Red heels.

Rocked my purple, leather Nine West purse.

(Because I’ve been too lazy to transfer all my crap)

I also wore my black “old man” sweater to make this more casual for the office. Plus, my office is cold and it was rainy today.

There was no question about whether or not to pile my hair high atop my head in a classic bun, but instead of working to achieve a sleek, polished one, I took the easy road and just bunched my curls and secured my bun with a few bobby-pins. I adorned my power-puff with a pearl clip right in the middle much like Audrey’s hair bling in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

There was no other choice in shades than a pair of my cateyes. I initially grabbed my black pair but opted for the whites to really let them stand out. My other accessories included:

Pearl bracelets, my pearl and onyx ring and my work watch.

But shoes can make an entire outfit and my all black ensemble needed a bold pop.

Enter my deep red Delicious pumps.

I did, however, commit a pretty serious crime of fashion:

I. wore. pantyhose. with. peep-toes!

I KNOOOOW…

Shit happens.

… and I didn’t shave my legs today.

Most days, immediately after taking my photos for my daily post, I change into comfys and lounge about. I don’t exactly feel the need to capture these looks (and I’m, quite frankly, embarrassed by most of them.) but today I figured, “what the hell?”

Hogwarts T, Gym shorts stolen from my ex, flip flops, uncontrollable hair.

Thanks for reading! I’ve been receiving some much appreciated love recently from new readers and I want to sincerely thank all of you. I’m so flattered that anyone actually reads my jibber-jabber and the support I’ve been shown means the world! Thank you.

Love, GK

Arts Supply Shopping Style!

Today, I picked up some art supplies on the cheap by taking advantage of some awesome coupons and sales at Michael’s. Afterwards, I was taken on a sweet and casual FroYo “date”. Here’s what I wore:

 

 

My new favorite (leopard print) shorts. A mint green (very) sheer top from Charlotte Russe. Leopard print sunglasses. Sea green Mystique bag.

 

 

 

Being a huge lingerie lover, I have a bra that matches the top perfectly. I love how I can show a lot by barely showing it. The back is a lot more revealing than the front, which I love because I think backs and shoulders are mucho sexy. The frilling in the front keep with the sheer while covering my girls and tummy.

 

 

 

Various rings and bracelets.

 

 

 

I wore my Tigers Eye in my stone cage necklace.

 

I can’t wait to get to work on my new canvases on my brand new easel!

Floral Print and Rum Runners

Tonight, I shared the evening with my best girlfriend, some of her coworkers, kamikazes and lots of rum runners. Here’s what I wore:

 

 

Floral print dress from Charlotte Russe. Thing braided brown belt. Sea Green Mystique bag. Large, Circular light brown sunglasses. Long Owl necklace. Various other jewelry.

 

 

 

There you have it.

Thanks for reading. Love, GK

 

[yester]Daily Threads :: Damn you, Michael’s.

Today I worked earlier than usual. I’m a total night owl so it’s always weird waking up early and getting out of work before the sun has set. I was excited, though, because my plan had become going to Michael’s afterwards and buying new canvases.

It got even more exciting! I thought, “Hmm.. Maybe I should check their website to see what coupons are in their weekly ad.” So I did. I was beside myself when I spotted not only a coupon for 20% off your entire purchase but a coupon for 40% off (specifically) canvases and easels! “Whaaaaaaat?!” Yes. It was my lucky day.

My manager offered to let me out an hour early and I got even more excited because I was that much closer to my fresh, new, on sale, canvases and thusly, closer to feeding my creating addiction and I’ve been jonesin’ to paint for a few days now…

I kept to the interstate and passed my exit(s) and drove out to Michaels TO FIND THEY WERE CLOSED! … It’s Sunday… bullshit.

So I went next door to TJ Maxx to see if they had the Michael Kors watch I want. They didn’t. So I bought an adorable bright green dress. I can’t wait to wear it!

Anyway, I worked today (as noted above) so I don’t have anything interesting to post for my daily threads. I do however have my daily threads from Saturday and Friday, my last two days off. Here goes:

Friday, July 27, 2012

(Nana’s birthday. I love and miss you, Nana)

I received quite the surprise Friday when one of my old friends gave me a call, out of the blue, to have lunch. We hadn’t seen each other since spring semester 2005 and even then, we had not been close for about a year. She’s lived out of state for the last several years so the opportunity to hang out hasn’t even been there but we’ve kept in touch via facebook and texts. She was one of two girls who really made a huge difference in my life when I was having a tough time. It was really nice to be able to meet up and catch up with her. Here’s what I wore:

Simple. Classic.

Jean Billabong Shorts. Light Blue and White striped button-up from Forever21. Various bracelets. A few rings. My long owl necklace (of course it’s facing the other way here…). Brown circular shades. and (My beloved) Michael Kors Hamilton Tote.

Later that evening, I shot some head shots for a friend of mine. Even later than evening, me and 3 of my friends “played Olympics” in the form of pool volleyball. GO TEAM USA!!!

Saturday, July 28, 2012

Saturday, I spent time watching the Olympics, editing the photos from the day before, watching classic Doctor Who (Baker, baby) and eating far too much pizza. I looked kind of adorable though:

Jean shorts. White tank top. Blue and White polka dots shear top by Lily White. (I love this top!). Various bracelets (the usual suspects mostly). Some rings (including my claddagh: heart out, boys). White cateye shades and the Hamilton Tote again (all my stuff was in it).
