Technology Tears plus Thoughts on Short Bodies

I have been asked to include better pictures when I post items about style, but have been challenged by the fact that I have no initiative when it comes to technology. But now I am happy to announce that my photos should be improving. Here’s why:

Cut-off Sleeves, Class, and the Best Beauty Tip Ever

Okay, the shirt from which I cut the sleeves (nice use of correct grammar, right?) both works and doesn’t work, in my opinion.

In a Fit of Anger…

Yesterday I had a plan: I would wear my new turquoise Converse kicks with cropped jeans and a favorite Free People oversized shirt — it’s a sort of pink-y blue corduroy, with a soft flounciness that I love.

Anyway, my sister/bestie sent me a picture of her “sassy” pink shoes, which she got ten years ago (or so). Now that she (finally) has a job again, she has to get out of her crossfit exercise clothes and dress like a grownup again, and I can tell she’s doing a good job just from this picture of her lower half. And look at those legs! Sheesh…
