lady luxe tux.

   black and white always remind me of the classic tuxedo.
and the tail of this skirt sorta resembles the coat tail.
anyways, black never photographs well,
so just some detail shots here.

on another note, i've been terrible in accepting awards and have lots to catch up on. so scroll on down for some random facts about me.
(skirt, arden b; blazer, bebe; belt, coach)

huge thanks to bonnie of glam kitten's litterbox for the stylish blogger award. she always entertains me with her brutally honest commentary on just about evvrything.
seriously, never a dull moment.
as bonnie would say...
ch-check her out.

and

 

another shout out to aie of in aie's shoes for the versatile blogger award. as the title of her blog suggests...she has an amazing collection of shoes. only a shoe lover would think to use her excess denim as shoe dust bags. love.

1. 99% of the time, i never change my watch batteries. once it dies, i buy a new watch.
2. i love the smell of rubber. passing by sports authority i sometimes get a whiff of their shoes. it's like a drug.
3. i haven't really watched tv in two years. i catch up on all my shows via casttv.com
4. i usually only wear rings on my pointer fingers, unless they were custom made. my ring sizes are between 4-5. i usually find size 6s which will fit loosely on my pointers.
5. i like to swear, so i make up words that are more kid-friendly. for example, i like to say shit, but they kids should hear shoot. so i say shnit. they're clueless, and i'm somewhat satisfied.
6. if i didn't have kids, i'd be riding a motorcycle.
7. i feel the need to pronouce those word verification words. seriously, who does that? me. that way i can type it fast...like a real word...without looking.

i'm supposed to pick seven of you, but you are all amazing.

  5. I love the blazer! I agree, the tail of the skirt reminds me of the tail of a tux jacket.

  19. Congrats on the award!. I love the hook button detail on the jacket. But I have a confession I secretly love the smell of rubber soles on sneakers fresh out the box and sometimes the smell of gasoline. Weird but you are not alone about the strange smells.
