The Scene

Do you still get giddy when the President is announced and this guy enters the room?

I DO :)

What an address tonight, huh? What an orator. So many lines that gave me chills. Namely, "The nation that invented the automobile cannot walk away from it." And "We are a nation that has seen promise amid peril and claimed opportunity from ordeal...Now we must be that nation again...We are not quitters.” Adore. I hope Wall Street does too.

p.s. Anyone else distracted by how much Nancy Pelosi was fussing with her necklace while President Obama spoke? Ay dios mio. I will never understand how an intelligent woman who's spent her entire career in the public eye doesn't know that a necklace that's practically a choker cannot rest over a collar that's practically banded.

And don't EVEN get me started on that odd waffling/bow tie situation around the tummy area of her ZIPPER FRONT jacket. (crying)

I think I may have to take MSSFD on the road...Diabolina goes to Washington.

The Grade

The Commentary

Have had animal prints on the brain since Sunday. Especially hyper color animal prints that don't happen in nature.

No one reinvents animal prints season after season

Quite like Diane.

Still processing all the mixed leopard patterns she showed for Fall.

And loving that it looks like tribal jewelry will stick around for another season.

Today's cheapie yellow necklace wasn't as statement-y as I would have liked.

But I am gaga for yellow lately. Especially this fluttery buttery DVF top. Imagine it with today's skirt. I DIE. DEAD ON THE FLOOR. OF A FASHION ORGASM.

Piled on the F21 bracelets to try to make up for the snoozer of a necklace

Global chic trendy on a dime.

Now all I need are some feather LV skirts

And a LV animal print clutch

And some hot haute LV sandals to match


Wish I had piled on even more accessories and patterns and general fabulousness today.

The only thing holding me back? A workplace filled with jeans, sneakers and stink eyes.

Even showing up in simple but interesting patterns like these would be TOO TOO for some peeps. Sigh.

Stink eye story of the day: Today, through clenched teeth, a coworker stared and stared at me and then told me my bangs looked "good." But she kinda spat out the word "good" so it sounded like "ihateyou." Wah.

Have I mentioned I need to get crackin on my own business?

I would just say, "Your bangs look good, whore!" and get it out there.

I hate when the gals at the office give me a stink eye because I like to add color, accesories and bomb ass shoes to my "work wear".
The bangs look good on you!

JEM said...

I unfortunately know what you mean about the 'stink eye' lol. But definitely agree with the other ladies re: your bangs! I think they make you look more chic :)

Great outfit! Can you please do a future post on accessories? I never know if I'm going overboard with my bracelets and stuff or how I can pair up earrings/necklaces/rings! Thanks and I love your blog!!!

I wonder why she even bothered. That's terrible, but I can relate. She's obviously dying with jealousy looking at your hot self every day.

Fairly recently, I got into an argument of sorts online with some women about whether long hair is professional. I said long hair was fine. Someone countered by saying, "Take a look at any female senator or governor. None of them have long hair."

I said that I'd rather be "unprofessional" than look like that. :P
