Alive Again! Double the Cod (parts I & II)

alternative text
Sorry for the questionable quality of these photos-- I have no idea why they came out so shabbily. But then, I was in a hurry while these were being taken. Which would also explain my terrible face, wrinkled jacket, etc. Oh, the flaws...

These photos were taken from last week, otherwise known fondly as The Week of Eternal Burning Work Oh God. However, this a double-edition of the Alive Again! wardrobe project, which I wanted to group together in one post. Last week was dedicated to none other than that lovable money-grubbing detective, Emerson Cod.

My best "oh HELL no" face.

Here's the second part of the series. Unfortunately, I didn't wear my leather jacket as planned (in accordance to Emerson's style), since it was well into the 80s that day. So I turned Cod's couture on its head and made it summer-appropriate.

It was a miracle in itself that I had these photos taken at all-- Thursday was my busiest day by far!

I think this blouse had the same kind of fun pattern always seen on Emerson; the pinstripes of his jacket were emulated in the pinstripes on my shorts.

Awkward posing for the win?

Nope, never mind, Emerson takes the cake again. Gosh. [screencaps taken by me]

Are there any guilty foods that you've been really hankering to have lately?

Some kind of savory Asian noodles. Not sure what kind, and not sure how I'll find them. But that's what I have been craving.

It's so nifty that you're channeling his style! You look miles long in the first outfit. Love that short blazer and the length of the pants. AND I LOVE BURRITOS. Seriously. I have been in a bad mood lately, and when I get in a bad mood I eat bad food (rhyme?). So today I ate some greasy pizza and Lucky Charms. Yum (?).
