I Think I'll be Fine if I'm Covered in Wine
I went to a baby shower today. I hate baby showers with an intensity that is beyond comprehension. It was pretty damn awful, but I paired these two necklaces which made me smile secretly.
One of the things I love about fashion is how much it is infused with the individual. I am naturally drawn to all things ironic, sacrilegious, and cynical. When I was contemplating my outfit today, I decided I wanted to wear something childish. The headband and child's rosary were the beginning of this outfit because they were so innocent. But being me, I couldn't stay completely innocent, so I threw on the beer pendant with a navy ribbon just to make this outfit contradictory and sassy in a way that is oh-so-Carly.
After the shower, I went home to take care of a lot of things that needed to be taken care of since I got home from California. A nice glass of wine eased the chore.
