air conditioning woes

What is it with air conditioning units breaking down all around me? First it was at my office, and now, it's in my home. That's right - the A/C unit at my house decided last night that it had cooled us for long enough and that it was high time for it to go bust. So now my room is a balmy 83 degrees. I know this because I have a thermometer in here, and it clearly reads "8-3." 83 degrees. INDOORS. #$^$%#$!!!!

Moving on to the OOTD:

Simply Vera cardigan, Kohls
Xhilaration tiered cami, Target
Joe's Jeans
Lela Rose wedge heels, Payless
American Apparel bow tie + vintage pearls + random chains



I've always wanted a bow tie. (I have a thing for men's accessories, can you tell?) But I'm not exactly sure walking around sporting a straight-up bow tie is going to look, you know, sane, so I opted to turn this one into a necklace of sorts. Arts and crafts, anyone?

Halloween weekend is upon us! I hope you all have plenty of fun and candy (and candy-filled fun!), and have a great weekend!

  9. You sure are dressed cute for 83 degrees! It's been warm here in Chicago too, but not like that! That is a creative idea with the bowtie, and those wedges are pretty—do they have a striped heel?

  10. Angela, jcmama - Thanks!

    NoJCrewinJapan - $21?!! That's amazing! I love Joe's Jeans because they fit so well, and have a line just for short people like me! I mean, I still have to cuff them, but at least the cuff isn't half a foot long, haha! And yay for ruffly camis! Mine is from Target, but I did get it because I was craving a J.Crew-style tiered cami!

    FFM - Thanks! I hope the A/C is fixed soon too, I don't know if I can stand the heat!

    Pamela - No A/C = UGH indeed! Oooh, 1/2 off Christian Siriano's line? I haven't seen his shoes in person, though, have you? I wonder how they look/feel!

    Kathy - Thanks!

    sarah - I KNOW! What is it with me and attracting busted A/C unit?!

    tres tippy - This is true, I will be away, haha! Thanks!

    e. - Thanks! For the record, the photo was taken in the morning when it was still cool outside, therefore cooler inside as well! And the wedges are indeed striped. They're clear with navy stripes, in fact! Fun!
