I think the title says it all. I had it decided it in my head since this afternoon; that's more pre-planning for a blog post than I've ever done in awhile. Like, I'm totally on it.


Speaking of things I totally got: 
It's the second anniversary of treating myself to Modcloth in celebration of the day I shot out of the uterus aka birthday. And the package arrived today (finally, no thanks to weather conditions), along with a nice ... thing. I'm grateful (and a little tentative for my wallet, there's a reason I don't regularly purchase from Modcloth), but can you  help a blogger out here? I'm having a major durka-durr moment and am not ... exactly sure what this... is.

Watch it turn out to be the simplest thing, like an elaborate shoelace. Is it a shoelace? I don't know whether to put this on my head or shoes.

erm, I think its for your head? Maybe? but it looks ginormous. and like a shoelace. Or a bungie cord. whatever.

Does anyone in the world look better in red lipstick than you?

No. no they don't.

Is it a headband? Like this:

???

And i agree with Rose. You are the best red lipstick wearer ever. What shade is that? Help a fellow asian find the perfect red.

Totally in agreement about the red lipstick. Which kind is it, if you don't mind me asking?

My first thought was "bungee cord for holding down tarps!" If you're wondering if I'm a small-town girl, yes, yes I am.

Hrm... I agree with Lindsey... It DOES look like a bungee cord. Maybe Modcloth is branching out into camping supplies?

In other news, your lipstick and tights are amazing. :D

Rose said...

P.S. I am intrigued by your trade proposal! Let's talk about it more?

um, how awesome is your sweater vest? i am obsessed. i love it.

i think that thing is a headband. i got one in my modcloth purchase as well and i'm not quite sure what to do with it, mostly it just sits on my dresser! :)
