Today I'm killing two birds with one post.
I'm sitting in bed, sneezing like a mad woman
and shaking and sweating alternately.
Yup, I have finally caught what Cinnamon man
has already been dealing with for over a week,
and Date Night tomorrow is canceled :(
However, that doesn't stop me from joining Professor Z
and showing you what I probably would have worn, had I been well.
I am way too tired to dress up, so hanger style will have to do.
This is the dress I wore for New Year's. It's got a straighter 20's look
than most of my other clothes (which can be an issue for a woman
with a small waist but large thighs, like me) but I love all the lace detailing.
Here are some of my boots (yes, some. I have a much larger collection...).
I would likely wear the tallest pair for a date in this kind of weather.
And these are my purses, that unfortunately almost never get an airing.
(I have one huge bag that I tow around everywhere I go.)
The bottom one is my favorite, a silk velvet Art Déco style purse
that Cinnamon got for me last Christmas.
The top one I inherited from my grandmother a few years ago.
It is a beaded purse from the 50's or 60's, a vintage beauty.
Ok, onto the next one!
This month Trystan at CorpGoth wants us to describe and show
what it is we love about our vocation, what keeps us hanging on.
What I love most about my job are three things:
1. This is when I get up in the morning:
(I know, it's frickin' GREAT.)
2. I'm my own boss and I have no colleagues.
I have issues with authority figures and I can't function
properly with people around me all the time.
I call it being 'skinless'; Everything anyone says,
does - and even feels sometimes - goes straight into me.
It's exhausting, so working alone is perfect for me.
3. I'm the boss (did I mention that already?).
That means I can wear what I want, eat lunch when I want
(though it has to be between customers), set my own hours,
stock and sell what I like, decorate the store
however I want, clean as seldom as I want... :)
So, what are you guys doing for Valentine's,
and what do you love about your jobs?
