Wore this outfit to a poetry reading at the Carnegie Library Sunday Reading Series. The work of my good friend and poet Christina Murdock was featured. Christina passed in April of 2010 and myself and several other poets read from her book "Burying the Body" which has almost sold out of the first run and doesn't appear to be available online after a quick search.
At any rate my friend Christina LOVED shoes, so I wore the puppies in her honor and I know she would have rocked a bow tie with the best of them. These pants have been seen before here and here, and I'm pleasantly surprised about how versatile they've become. The print of this blouse is so trippy and the fact that it was original $158 and I got it on sale for $29.99!!! made me squeal a bit. But regardless of the squeal effect I can see this blouse livening up the standard office outfit. I mean its a button-up shirt, which is totally appropriate with a suit/trousers and cardigan combo. The print though is so much fun and turns the standard office uniform on its a head a bit. Like I said...trippy.....
