I'm not going to lie, some things have me feeling a little blue. It doesn't help when the paper publishes a story about how the Hamilton Animal Control has already put down over 1000 cats this year... that made me sadder. If there is one thing I am a total bitch about it is responsible pet ownership. In this case the biggest problem are people not getting their cats spayed or neutered leading to over-population. I'm sorry but if you can't take the time and the effort to get your cat fixed, you're a jerk. And if you say you can't afford it but have a) a big screen t.v., b) an i-phone or c) any gaming system (excluding Sega) then you need to give your head a shake... Ok, I'll stop ranting, this just gets me upset...can you tell?
So, I know that shopping won't solve any problems but I do find that peacefully perusing through racks of clothing clears my mind and halts my teeth grinding temporarily. Once again to avoid to much financial damage I went to Talize (story of my life) and once again, it was fantastic. Some jewelry, a few skirts (including UNGARO! for $6) and this amazing sequined jacket later, I felt refreshed. In my last post I spoke about sometimes avoiding pink but this is too fabulous. The jacket has beaded trim around the hems and shoulders and the rest is crazy sequins. I decided not to remove the shoulder pads because they are too good.
When I came home with the goods I did something uncharacteristic. I put on the jacket for a outfit post without wearing the jacket out. I know, that's cheating but I was so excited to show you and my plans for the night consisted of some shopping and walking the big dogs we're dogsitting so I didn't wear this exactly. Though, without the heels, I probably would wear the sequins to walk dogs. Because I can. That's the fun of fashion.
