Copy Cat

I know I still owe everyone my final 5 outfits for my 30 for 30 challenge. The last week of the challenge the weather made it tough to get good photos. So I plan on re-wearing them in the next week or so and knocking those posts out.

This was the first outfit I wore after finishing the challenge.  I totally love Dolce and Gabbana’s  leopard/polka dot dresses from their Fall 2010 collection, so I figured it would be fun to play with what I already had in my closet. Call me a copy cat.

Have a dress you’re kinda “meh” about?  Put a vest on it!  Or a bird, if you’re from Portlandia.

Let’s rewind back to day sixteen….

As promised, here’s my super late post on what I wore to Summer Stage.  My friend Glenna and I went to go see Jim Gaffigan (my favorite comedian EVER)  perform in Central Park.

Here’s what I wore.

Day Sixteen 2

Day Sixteen 3

Despite it taking me over an hour and half to get home from work (a drive that should only take 20 minutes) and then another 30 minutes to get to the park from my apartment, it was totally worth it.  Once I had a beer in hand and some Asia Dogs, I was in the best mood ever.  The weather as well as the scenery in the park couldn’t have been more perfect.  It was the epitome of what summer nights should be.

As expected, Jim Gaffigan was hilarious and actually did some new material I hadn’t heard yet which totally made my night.  His opener, a guy named John Pinette was pretty funny too though I he obviously has something against vegans.  A good third of his act was devoted to how he’s confused about vegan diets and juicing appliances.  Boo!  Stuff like that makes me wish people would do their research first as to what something is all about  prior to making public statements in front of thousands of people.  Especially in this city which is full of vegans, vegetarians and eco and health minded residents!  Lucky for him I’m a vegan that can laugh along and take stereotypes in stride and not personally.  The rest of his act was still pretty funny and he did sound just like Gilbert Gottfried, so I guess I’ll give him a pass for stupidity.

No Time to Eat

Day 8-1 Display
{Dress: H&M; Chambray Shirt: Old Navy; Wedges: Dolce Vita for Target; Cuff: H&M}

So yesterday I get home with a plan.  I was going to be home by 6 pm, order some takeout, and while waiting for the takeout, was going to take my photos.  Then the food would arrive, I could eat it fairly leisurely, and then at around 6:50 or so run on over to the gym for my spin class and personal training session.

I get home and the first thing I always do is feed the pets.  Our cat has diabetes, so the lucky girl always gets an insulin shot with her meals twice a day.  I go to grab a needle, and sure enough we’re out.  So then I wonder, if she doesn’t get her shot until tomorrow, will she be ok?  A quick Google search tells us that no, she can in fact go into a coma, so I now have to shove a trip to the pharmacy in my 50 minute window.

So I order our food, take my photos (and remember to turn the auto-focus on!), run to the pharmacy, and by the time I get home it’s already 6:35.

Great.

I throw on my gym clothes, determine there’s not enough time to eat, and proceed to go to the gym and am the crankiest bitch you’d ever meet.

At least I had my takeout waiting for me when I got home at 8:30 pm.

Dolce Day

Day Two{Maxi Dress: H&M; Cardigan: Dolce and Gabbana (Thrifted); Belt: H&M; Wedges: Dolce Vita for Target}

I realized while putting together this post that my day two outfit includes two “Dolce” items. One being one of my best thrifted finds ever, a Dolce and Gabbana cardigan, and the other being some Dolce Vita wedges I got from Target. I guess it’s Dolce Day.
