This morning at work I was minding my own business when I heard a ruckus. A musical ruckus. A SOUND OF MUSIC RUCKUS.
The following is the transcript of my actual IM conversation with The Peeper.
Diabolina: someone is getting a singing telegram right now
Diabolina: for his bday
Diabolina: I AM IN THE THIRD CIRCLE OF HELL
Diabolina: the singer is dressed up as maria from the sound of music
The Peeper: O MY GOD.
The Peeper: now that a sight to see
Diabolina: she's sung five songs already
Diabolina: i'm going crazy.
The Peeper: AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
The Peeper: the hills are alive?
The Peeper: do re mi?
Diabolina: now the slow one
The Peeper: i am 16?
Diabolina: not that one
The Peeper: hahahahaha
The Peeper: this funny
Diabolina: bloom and grow
Diabolina: right now
Diabolina: peeps singing along
The Peeper: sing!
Diabolina: what a job that woman have
The Peeper: inspirational
The Peeper: there so many ways to make living
The Peeper: not stuck to one path
Diabolina: i need out of my current path
Diabolina: pray for me
The Peeper: i pray to baby jesus
Diabolina: AGAIN WITH THE HILLS ARE ALIVE
Diabolina: she's way talented
Diabolina: how hard for her to be doing this
The Peeper: what a morning
The Peeper: b-day person love sound of music

The Peeper: or laughing?
Diabolina: bday BOY. it a GUY
Diabolina: he singing along
The Peeper: oh boy!
Diabolina: SHE GONNA DO ANOTHER
Diabolina: THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS!!!
Sable Crow took it one step further. He called me and demanded I take a picture for the blog!!! NO WAY! That would make me seem like I was condoning all this. Ugh. He's becoming such a pushy stage mother.
And as if a singalong in the middle of the morning wasn't bonkers enough, the singer's outfit looked more Mary Poppins than Frauline Maria. Think she got her Julie Andrews movies mixed up. F.
I swear you can't make up the Dilbert shenanigans that happen in offices. How is this my life? How did it all go so horribly wrong? Sigh.
Get through the rest of work day and watch Wanted with Mr. Diabolina in the evening. I enjoy it despite the REDIC plot line. Dig the Matrix like action. Adore Hottie McHottie James McAvoy. And Angelina Jolie is just great to look at - she's so stunning she's frightening.
Plus the flick is based on the premise that one can escape the soul sucking cubicle grind...
Fashion District tunic
Blue Cult jeans
Gucci platform sandals
Marc Jacobs hobo bag
Forever 21 sunglasses and bangle
Louis Vuitton earrings
Hair isn't behaving lately. Neither is my skin. Feeling blah blah blah.
Plus wasn't feeling going to The Office today at all. So decided to dress down...way down. Friday after all.
This is probably the most casual I've dressed at the new job. The sad thing is that today's schlepy outfit is right in line with how roughly 70 percent of the office dresses most days. Sigh.
I'm becoming pretty self conscious about wearing my fancy heels and dresses because everyone gapes when I do. Most of the women give dirty looks. Ugh. Don't even get me started about how PISSED I would have been if I was wearing a pulled together professional look today when the singing nun showed up :)
Built the outfit around the ratty jeans and the beauty of a scarf. Picked the easy white chiffony top next to make the scarf really pop. Then came the neutral bag and then the Gucci shoes.
Donned my new Chloe knockoffs in red to pick up the reddish hues in the scarf. Gawd how I adore these sunnies.
Finally I donned the LV earrings and the Forever bangle because they also matched the scarf nicely.
Probably inspired by all the summer scarves I've been seeing everywhere lately on celebrity chicas. Particularly in my Singer 22 emails. Lightweight scarves are an easy, low cost way to sass up simple separates.
Makes you look a little Cochella hipster too. Good for office singalongs.
