This was my entry in the April Le.Look styling contest. I didn’t even get an honorable nod. That’s totally bogus.
No doubt my outsider status ~ in combination with not plunking down quite enough L’s ~ keeps me out of the running, but that’s high school for you. In the meantime, I’m completely loving these DeLa boots and had been looking for an excuse to get this jewelry set for absolute ages. I probably won’t bother with that contest again, but it’s not a total loss. Given the potential pay-off, I’d say it’s worth one little flutter. My guess is that it probably helps to be buds with an insider, but if they found themselves inundated with quality entries, it would force them to be a bit more sporting about the whole thing.

I hit one of those cart sales tonight. Mostly there’s a lot of flotsam and jetsam, but every now and then I run across something, and then something else, and then another little tidbit here and there, and before you know it, I’ve cobbled together a pretty nifty little ensemble. I like digging through a pile of stuff and just randomly trying things on to see what works, eventually turning out something acceptable. It’s joy.
I’ve been throwing on this and that over the past several days, trying to wrap my head around why I bother. I bother, I guess, because everyone has to play at some point or another. i’m not sure I can go much deeper into it than to explain that I like to play. I like doll houses and I like stylin my virtual representation of ego.
So there. That’s about it. And here she is in a hunt item that is looking way hipper than a lot of hunt looks can manage. Nice job Fabienne Bolissima Couture.
