What I Wore Wednesday and some Exciting News!

So this week, I only have one outfit for you--sad, I know.

The reason I only have one is because I worked the other days this week. And if you see me on a morning before work, you'd understand why I'm not taking photos of myself!

8:20 am on a workday morning generally finds the Starr abode in utter chaos, with S issuing his "five minute!" and "one minute!" reminders, and me frantically debating which shoes to wear, and other essential questions of life (tights or no tights? umbrella or not?). I've nearly walked out the door before remembering that I cover my hair--and ran back to shove that wig on my head. Good times.

So anyhoo, here's what you get:

I know the picture isn't too fantabulous. I'd replace the mirror, but truth be told? Everyone who looks in it comments on what a skinny mirror it is. And I always feel fabulous looking in it. So it stays:)

Where I got stuff:
  • Tank top: Ann Taylor (on sale!)
  • Denim skirt: Ann Taylor (long time ago)
  • White shell: Kiki Riki online (since for some reason, the Orthodox stores in Brooklyn don't sell them in white. Boo.)
  • Shoes: Target (last season)
  • Necklace: Meredith Fenwick Designs (won this on Ali Edwards's blog and I LOVE it!)

A close-up of the detail on the shirt:


And some fairly pathetic attempts at a self portrait:

Wait, too serious. Let's try again:



And now, onto the exciting part! (if you're excited already, bonus points!)

Ella Publishing just released a new ebook about journaling! I've taken a peek at it and it is FAB! Here's the link to get a copy for yourself!

And before I go, a little sneaky question.........Can you guess WHY I'm so excited about this ebook?

The first one to get it right wins a little prize pack from me!

  21. (Hi - don't enter me in your contest - I've got a giveaway for Ella's "Journaling That Matters" on my blog too). But just wanted to tell you how much I love your "Fear didn't stop me" layout in the book! (And we've got some things in common - ie. moving / law + scrapbooking). Very cool layout! :) Katie.
