Sheer Genious

12 April 2009






Above is my absolute favorite 'going out' outfit. The floral skirt is so fun, and can be dressed up with a simple pairing of black and heels. Plus, the sheer back of the top adds a night time element.

I'm finally back after driving a total of 17 hours this weekend to see my best friend who is going to school in... Alabama! I must say that there is not anything like some southern comfort. I pretty much blew off everything and all the work I have to do to be with my favorite people in the world. Anyways, I got tagged by the lovely carocream about a week ago and I've been excited to get to it. Here goes:


Rules:1. Respond and rework: answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own.

2. Tag eight other un-tagged people. Here it goes...

What is your current obsession?
Photography and ringpops

Red umbrellas! I had a red one with a ruffled trim and I will not rest until I find one again.
