The moment I saw these high-waisted paperbag trousers at The Limited, I fell in love. I don’t have anything else like them in my closet, and they can be dressed up (with a white oxford) or dressed down (with a black tee and jewelry. Lots of jewelry). They get bonus points because the high waist lengthens my insanely short legs. And, as if they needed another selling point, I waited so long to buy them that I came dangerously close to missing out…but I managed to snag a pair at the last minute for $12. Yes, you read that correctly. Thank you, I’ll be here all night!

They say you learn something new every day. Today, I learned:
1. I need a better camera, or at least a better place to take photos than in front of my closet door. I want (read: NEED) a DSLR camera, but I’ve got a wedding and a house to pay for first. Here’s to hoping either I win the lottery or that Santa is crazy generous this year.
2. I am exceptionally awkward in front of the camera. Apparently I need to re-watch every episode ever of America’s Next Top Model.
3. It’s official. I simply do not look good in red lipstick.
Better luck next time?
