boots/tights/tee: target; socks: gift; cardi/belt: panache; dress turned into skirt: old navy
this skirt was once a dress.
to be exact, last night it was a dress.
a dress that fit quite perfectly in the store and the first time i wore it, and then shrunk juuust a little bit in the wash. and that little bit that it shrunk made it an awkward length...a length that, looking in my mirror, looked just fine. but walking, sitting, cleaning tanning beds...was just a bit short for my liking.
so last night i got out my scissors and chopped the top off. and now i wear it as a skirt! and i like it like that.

want to know something awkward?
today, on my slippery walk home, some guy was walking right behind me. like, right on my shoulder. and the sidewalks were all snowy and there was only room to walk single-file. i swear i could smell his hot dog breath (he didn't have hot dog breath, that's just what i imagine). i finally came to a shoveled driveway that i could step into to let him pass me. yikes. sometimes walking home is weird.

want to know something not awkward?
i was ready last night to buy my camera. i'd done my research. i'd looked lovingly at the chosen camera online every day for 2 weeks. i'd been paid. i knew what i wanted. i told david my decision.
then, he sat on our couch with me for a good long while and browsed every camera in my price range, read reviews, checked out refurbished vs. used vs. new...and concluded that i'd made the correct choice. it was adorable.
so i bought a camera last night. and since i get amazon prime cause i'm a student, i got free 2-day shipping. and it was only $3 to upgrade to overnight...so i did it. what can i say, i'm impatient.
and now my camera will be in my hands tomorrow! yip yip yippee!
