Business is Blooming

June 17th, 2010 by Selise

Friends, I present “conservative floral” for your viewing pleasure. You can’t really tell in the pictures but this shirt is covered in little pink and yellow roses. The badge is a vintage cross-stitch flower and I have a giant flower pin in my hair.  I’m a bit chuffed at pulling this one off. Sure, knee high socks and pink Mary Janes might not be every body’s idea of work-conservative but hey, it works for me.

I’m in the wars a bit today. My eyes are playing up again. Ugh. You know it’s bad when you inadvertently colour match your shoes to your eyes. The whites of your eyes. And your shoes aren’t white. Speaking of white, these cute little socks were fresh out of their packet this morning and I’ve managed to get matching black scuff marks across the top of both of them. And spill tea on one too! The latest instalment in my “wars” series is an epic, 3 tier paper cut on my thumb. Oh yeah when I work, I work hard.

As an aside when I was little (who am I kidding, all the way up until my mid twenties) I thought the saying was “In the walls”. I mean, it makes sense! You know, knocking into the walls and stuff. Right? Right guys?

    LOL! In the walls! That's adorable!
    Love your take on conservative floral 🙂 You look funky as always. Ouch about your papercut.. hope tomorrow you're less "in the walls" and more through a door? 🙂

    ps. Totally the same with cute stationary. I don't even bother buying cards unless I have a specific occasion or person in mind. They'd just sit in my draw or on my desk all pretty otherwise 😀

    Like the knee sock and red shoe combination.
