the book you didnt know you needed

literary greats paper dolls.  bought for me by my mom from the library book sale.  why would you get rid of this book??  it is full of amazing.  most of the authors on the front are recognizable by a non-english major [aka moi] but the very first as it turns out, is ernest hemingway - the old man and the sea.


i ventured into goodwill yesterday.  in search of nothing in particular.  yet i made quite the haul.   and the nice lady at the checkout [after it was decided lines were subject to impatient anarchy.  ie line jumping.  assholes.  i waited my turn.]  offered me a goodwill discount card.  $10 for 10% off for a year.  it already paid for itself so you can do the math on how much i spent. 
jackets and blazers and tigers oh my.  no really.  clockwise from top left: denim blazer, faux velour LLbean blazer, nautical striped blazer, cape-like cropped apartment 9 jacket, and slightly ridonculous cropped tiger jacket.

sooo cute and innocent when he sleeps.  nose buried in his tail, all fluffed out.  ITS A LIE.  apparently it is "rip apart anything liz wants to eat in a terrible slashing massacre" month.  a red bean bun, a sweet coconut roll, and a half bag of baked cheetos have succumbed to the wrath of angry kitty.

liz's laundry

aka polka dot week.  and/or "is this too short to wear to work?" week
  • sweater, new rain coat, ridic feather earrings: target
  • dress: thrifted
  • belt: h&m
my dress kept getting riding up under my coat.  fortunately the garage is less than a block away from the building i work in.  and um.. since the bottom hem of the dress has the dark ombre you couldnt tell that it was rather wet by the time i made it inside. 
an arm party decided to make an appearance

liz's laundry

a random woman [i'm sure we've been introduced 2-3 times] at work stopped me and said "that is a very good color on you"  i thanked her and scampered off for more anti-pasto skewers.  apparently there was a dual-office-happy-hour-celebration announcing expansion of the company.  [i think they video-ed in the charlotte office] and there were snacks leftover.  but frankly i'm still a little iffy on red.  its so bright.  and red.  and bright.
  • top: tj maxx
  • tank: f21
  • skirt: thrifted

liz's laundry

the new office i'm temping at has some hvac problems.  basically the building is 100+ years old, the a/c broke, and no one in the city knows how to fix it.  thus, management had to get quotes from various companies to completely replace the system and possibly some of the distribution.  since were on the 6th floor and its been either sunny or extremely humid, the office has been 80 degrees according to my cubical neighbor's thermometer.  i thought he was exaggerating.  unfortunately no.  hence, all outfits have had a sweater for driving to work, walking from the parking garage, and then is immediately removed when i reach my desk.  pants were a poor choice as i was duped by the cloudy skies and torrential downpour.  it was still 79 indoors.

also a company-wide memo was sent out basically stating due to a/c issues, shorts would be allowed in the office as part of a super-casual initiative.  and i quote "but please be advised of blindingly pale legs due to long maine winters"
  • dress: thrifted
  • cropped sweater: kohls
  • necklaces: ae and some random street vendor
