Today's outfit, 5/15/2013 is on the left, and yesterday's outfit, for the Board meeting, 5/14/2013, is on the right. I apologize for any confusion this causes. I realize I did the set contrary to left-right reading. In my excitement to share my pink outfit, I did that first, then moved it to the left, then did yesterday's outfit. Not that yesterday's outfit was less exciting, but ... PINK!!!
So I had my mammogram today. I had a biopsy back in November, which came back negative, gods be praised, and today was my sixth-month follow-up. Naturally, I thought the color of the day should be pink, and lots of it. It is my favorite color, along with blue.
I don't actually have pink and white striped "Nerd" socks; I have pink and white striped socks with black skulls. Because not only am I a nerd, I'm also an old-timey Goth nerd.
Once again, the tote bag is a stand-in for my LL Bean custom tote bag.
As for the Board meeting outfit, I wanted a vibe that was professional, and a little casual. I've also decided to go for an edgier look ... in my middle years, I've decided I don't want to put up with nonsense. So I try to add something to my outfit that gets that across. Whether I'm succeeding or not, only time will tell. One thing's for sure, when I wear an outfit that makes me feel strong and empowered, I don't put up with nonsense, and I feel stronger and more capable, so hopefully that comes across.
The translucent pouch is a stand-in for the polyvinyl envelope in which I carry my legal pad to take notes, and documents.
The agate necklace is a stand-in for a beautiful agate heart necklace on a leather cord that I bought at a crafts fair at the Staten Island Mall. The artisan made beautiful gemstone jewelry with metal and leather, and it was inexpensive ($10 a piece!), so I bought quite a few necklaces from him.
