THE LOOK: Sunshine and Stoles

Here's THE LOOK!
This (faux fur) stole was on sale at the Gap, and I was like, "Me wants." So me getted. And there was much rejoicing, yay!
The only sad part about it is that it's supposed to be tied together, but that's not quite how I want to wear it. I'm considering doing a Velcro project with removable backings so that I can have the stole attached either by clips or other ingenious things. I haven't figured it all out yet, but I'm waiting for a revelation to hit me. Soon, hopefully.

Hype the look here, and click below to read more.

THE LOOK: Boots for a Storm

The weather has finally decided to go all mutinous on us, and Pittsburgh's been assaulted with rain, snow, and winds. (Okay. So maybe assaulted isn't quite the right word since it's all been very on-and-off. But when it gets windy, it gets windy. And the same usually holds true for the rain and snow.)
Anyways, I can't really complain too much since the wind allowed me to take some cool pictures. (The whole process was a little frustrating, though: almost every time I was about to take a picture, the wind suddenly died down. Sad. Thankfully, I got a few neat photos out of the many that I took.)

Also, photo-editing is pretty awesome. (Hint-hint. Keep reading.)

THE LOOK: Mustard and Paisley

I used to hate prints when I was younger, and paisley was one of the types I hated the most. They just seemed so... garish and furniture-like. I couldn't understand why people wanted to look like walking sofas, so I snubbed them. I have, however, become rather fond of patterns of all sorts as time has passed, which you can probably tell.

Anyways, I'm keeping this post pretty short since I have lotsa-lotsa work. But I have a few more pictures after the jump, so click for more!

SPOTTED (little details)

Hillman Library

I saw this bag and really liked the print on it. It's certainly very unique, isn't it? So when I asked to take a picture, the owner of the backpack told me about the idea behind it -- and it was a very sweet one, indeed!

THE LOOK: Before the Frost

It's been snowing hardcore in Pittsburgh, but I'm lucky that I got around to taking these pictures a bit before it started getting nasty-cold. Don't be misled -- I was still freezing as these photos happened, but it beats having been caught in a frosty storm.

The Half-Time Report

I have to admit that I'm not big on TV. (I feel like I may have mentioned this before.) I, in fact, rarely watch TV since I always find other ways to distract myself, but big things like the Super Bowl are hard to miss when almost everyone else is discussing it.

Considering the fact that I have been enslaved by Milton's Paradise Lost for the past two weeks, my interest in watching the game dropped to a level lower than my usual apathy. So as my sister was watching the game, I was successfully ignoring it all since all of my attention was focused on deciphering syntax.

But then the half-time show came on, and I stared at the TV. Why? Because my brain went from well-done during the blank verse in the Miltonic epic to completely fried during Madonna's yoga performance. Err... I meant "half-time performance."

Let's get physical. Physical.
"This yoga pose is called the 'Pharaoh Pokes Your Eyes Out.' Do it with me."

I won't lie -- I got a little confused. For some reason, I started thinking of Olivia Newton John's "Physical" music video -- except trust Madonna to bring yoga into it, right? Of course.
It was really awkward, and I may or may not have felt really uncomfortable watching it.
But after a bit of confusion, things got okay because this happened:

Why, hello there, sparklies.

And if you're not amazed by that picture, then you just need to look more carefully. At the shinies. Look at the shinies. Look at them!
And look.
And look.
If you are still not amazed by the wonderful sequined choir robe on Cee Lo Green at this point but are scratching your scalp in confusion, then I'd still warrant that you might be doing it right. Maybe.

Anyways, more pictures and commentary below!
You know you want to read more!
(No, really. Do it!)
