Flowers in the Attic. Kinda creepy book, right? Yeah, well, I had a kinda creepy day. See these cute floral tights? Take a good look, because you will probably never see them again. I had not 1, not 2, but **3** creepy men make comments about them. 2 of them just stared and stared and asked if my legs were tattooed or was that "just hose". Go ahead, laugh, I'll wait. My husband thought it was hysterical!! Then there was the guy who talks like Billy Bob from Slingblade that got fired from his last job for staring at "the pretty cheerleaders". "I like them leotards you got on there. Uh, huh. They remind me of them girls at the school in their short skirts. Umhuh." Yeah, read that in Billy Bob's Slingblade voice. Uh, huh. Creepy, right?
And I was excited about this outfit. It was inspired by this post from Reva. Her floral trench reminded me that I have a pink trench-that I've never worn! So, I put the floral in my tights instead of my coat. And then the men folk had to get all weird on me! Sometimes living in a small town is not a good thing. Try to break out of your comfort zone and you get blindsided. So, anyway. The unlined pink trench is from Liz Claiborne. I bought it when our's went out of business for $12! This is the first time I've worn it and I've had it at least 6 years. You can't really tell but my turleneck from Coldwater Creek is purple and I have on my charcoal pencil skirt and my cheap brown Target boots.

Today I'm all in my favorite colors of black and red. I did venture out in tights again today. And I got some good natured ribbing from some people who were around when the creepy guys got ....creepy. But that was ok, because I KNEW they were just kidding around. I like this skirt, even if I do feel fat in it. It's got a kind of paper bag like waist to it and just makes me feel hippy or something. I think we all know I have body issues, so...moving on to pictures....
