A few weeks ago, I ordered the most glorious pair of leggings ever from Shoptiques. They are mint and covered in SEQUINS. I discovered them during my hunt for pretty Lucite Green things. I knew the first time I wore them had to be super special…
So I wore them to Monarch! I got tons of compliments on them (there were plenty of sequin-loving ladies in the room), and even felt up a few times. Ha!
We were also asked to bring either a fun tchotchke or something special that we carry with us to talk about during our icebreaker introductions. I wore my Auntie Kathy’s ring because it has such a great story to go along with it (I’ve told it before, here). Kathy is like a mother to me, and this ring reminds me that I’m just as loved, beautiful, powerful, and sassy as she is.
Oh, and these amazing photos? They were taken by Victoria of Victoria Gloria Photography, who had me cracking up the whole time. Above is my signature crinkle crooked grin.
I love this shot. It reminds me of Amélie, possibly my all-time favorite movie character.
The leggings are slightly too big for me, but that’s not going to stop me from parading around in them with pride. And oh! How awesome are those bow shoe clips?! I made them! More on those next week!
