I haven't been blogging much...

...so I just wanted you all to know that I wasn't taken up in the Rapture last week. That said, I do feel like I've been rescued from Hell, now the that Tennessee General Assembly has adjourned.

I'm really falling behind on my 333 Project Reports.

The 333 Project, Day 37

Teal/black dress
Black jacket
Black shoes
Teal purse
Teal thermoset brooch
John Atencio sterling/gold ring and bracelet

I haven't been wearing daily hats, because (a) they aren't in my 33 items, and (b) my hair is so long that a hat pushes my bangs into my eyes. That said, someone commented on the fact that I wasn't wearing a hat when we went to the House chamber to listen to a bill debated yesterday, and then someone else commented that I had such beautiful hair, she didn't know why I even wore hats. This, naturally, made me feel good, because no one has complimented my hair in quite some time.

But I'm still getting it cut as soon as I have a chance to get to the salon.

The 333 Project Weekend

The 333 Project, Day 34
This was Iroquois Steeplechase Saturday, and it was damp and chilly (blackberry winter).
Black ankle-length dress
Red/white polka dot boots (selected by my niece Mariann)
Aqua allweather coat (didn't match, but I was glad to have it)

Bonus accessories (because it was Steeplechase!): Red sinamay picture hat, red cinnabar bangles

Trades: I have traded out a suit and replaced it with the ankle length black dress, because I need dresses more than suits in the theoretically warmer weather.

Black shoes
Aqua purse
John Atencio sterling/gold ring and bracelet
John Atencio sterling/gold/turquoise ring and bracelet

Teal/green/black shirt
Black shell (it's chilly again today, so I'm layering
Black gored skirt
Black shoes
Teal purse

It's already hot as the devil here in NashVegas, so I have traded out one of my suits for another black dress. However, according to the 333 Project rules, it does not go back in my closet. I have added it to my box of stuff for This'N'That.

The 333 Project, Day 25

Brown/white polka dot dress
Off-white jacket
Sand 4-give sandals
Teal purse
John Atencio sterling/gold ring and bracelet
Lilly Barrack sterling/pearl ring

I had two black jackets in my original 33 items, but I realized yesterday that 24 days of the 3 months had passed without me ever wearing one of them, because it doesn't go with anything else I chose. So I traded it out for the off-white jacket, which goes with a bunch of things.

Did you hear about the royal wedding?

My three favorite ensembles:

Photobucket
Autumn Kelly Phillips. I would have wrestled her for that fabulous coat.

Photobucket
Princess Michael of Kent. She always looks lovely.

Photobucket
Sophie Winkleman. She's so pretty, and I really want that hat.

I had to swap out a couple of things. My "good" shoes were killing my feet, if I had to spend several hours standing on them (which, in my job, I do), so I traded them out (and gave them to This'N'That) and replaced them with black 4-give sandals and black/cork platform sandals.
