Pandora Internet Radio

What I Wore to Work Today: July 17, 2012

Blouse: Goodwill, $1 Thursday
Skirt: Gift from Sarah, refashioned
Shoes: Target

Pandora is my main music source when I’m at home, and now that I have an iPhone I’ve been listening elsewhere too: in my office cubicle, while biking, etc. It’s streaming music selected based on an artist, album, or song as a starting point. My account has stations that I rarely listen to anymore, and I haven’t yet deleted them because they’re listed in chronological order and I like seeing what I added over the years.

My first stations back in maybe 2007 or 2008 were Sade, The Roots, and “La Tortura” by Shakira & Alejandro Sanz. Some of the most recent are Florence + The Machine, Ratatat, “Stay” by Sugarland, and Today’s Adult Hits. Right now I’m on “Bad Girl” by Danity Kane, which I originally created a few years ago.

Grace of a gazelle

What I Wore to Work Today: July 16, 2012

Blouse: $1 Thursday Goodwill, refashioned
Skirt: Goodwill, shortened
Shoes: Target

As previously mentioned, I’m not an athlete. Still, I don’t think of myself as being particularly uncoordinated, except when I do things like this. I was stepping over the basil pot with my left foot and almost fell. Darn you gravity!

Volleyball players: WOW

What I Wore to Work Today: July 12, 2012
Shirt: Ross
Pants: Goodwill, refashioned
Shoes: Payless

I watched USA win Olympic volleyball today in various matches. I was impressed by how high they could all jump, especially Destiny Hooker on the women’s team and all of the beach volleyball players. Sand absorbs momentum — my feet don’t even break contact with the shifting sand as I walk, it’s more of a shuffle through the sand — and there they are sailing into the air above the net. I was impressed.

If I’m incarnated in an alternate universe as something other than the 5’2″ non-athlete that I currently inhabit, I think it’d be fun to be a top-tier volleyball player for awhile.

2nd grade dreams

What I Wore to Work Today: Wednesday, July 11, 2012
Shirt: Goodwill, refashioned, 50% off Saturday
Pants: Goodwill, $1 Thursday
Shoes: Payless

I had reached up to tuck my hair behind my ear, and one of the 6-in-a-row self-timer shots caught it. This is the exact pose my 9-year-old self thought was Standard Model Pose. One hand behind the head, the other on a hip. Look, Second Grade Self, you become a model when you grow up!

Vintage pillowcase tote bag

I made a lunch bag from a pillowcase using this tutorial, narrowing my bag so it wasn’t the full width of the pillowcase. I bring my lunch to work almost every day and I like being able to easily recognize mine among the many plastic grocery bags in the crowded office refrigerators.

Disappears in pictures

What I Wore to Work Today: July 9, 2012
Blouse: A mall store I don’t remember
Skirt: Target
Shoes: Target

This blouse has tuxedo ruffles on the front and a long waist tie in the same fabric and neither really shows up in the picture. That small bulge on my right hip next to the arm at my side? That’s the belt’s floppy bow.

I wore my version of patriotic on the day before the 4th of July. We got to leave work several hours early in recognition of the holiday and then the office was closed on the 4th. USA! USA!

With or without

What I Wore to Work Today: June 26, 2012
Blouse: Gift from Sarah
Pants: Goodwill, $1 Thursday
Cardigan: Target
Shoes: Payless

I might wear these pants to work every day because it’s so easy. Ok, and because I like routine, and uniforms. There’s a man at work who wears a brick red polo shirt, buttoned up to the top, every day. Maybe not every day, I’m going to start actively looking for him to confirm or refute this theory. I can’ t picture his pants, maybe khaki or gray? Which supports my plan: the top half of an outfit is more noticeable than the bottom, especially if the bottom is basic black pants.

Update: The colleague appears to alternate dark blue and brick red polo shirts.
