dressed up like a lady: Domestic comedy.

Feb 24, 2012

Domestic comedy.

Dance leotard: Capezio
Circle skirt: vintage via ArtelleGallery
Shoes: Poetic License
Cardigan: Thrifted
Faux pearls" Thrifted  

A dance leotard and a full skirt are a tried and true combo -- nobody looks bad in that pretty, New Look, fit-and-flare silhouette. So when the company I work for was informed that the Japanese TV station NHK was sending a crew into our office to film a segment about my department (!?), I figured this ensemble was my best bet for hopefully not looking overtly horrible while potentially appearing in the background of an interview in which my boss explains the exciting world of movie data content licensing. I'll let you know if/when the segment airs or streams or whatever.

People are always asking "Aren't you cold while you take those pictures?!" The answer is of course I'm cold, it's like 30 degrees out! That's why after posing for about 30 seconds, I put my coat back on!. ;)

Anyway, normally the post would end there, but then MC captured this candid of me at home, looking like I'm about to KILL SOMEONE with this iron:

I swear, I was just spaced out, thinking about how much laundry I had to do, but apparently that thought process gave the outward impression of smoldering rage. I subsequently tried to make up for it with a few dainty poses.

Then we discovered a tiny, handmade felt dress on the floor that goes with my step-daughter's Blythe dolls, and as I'm sure you already predicted, I proceeded to pantomime ironing the tiny little garment like the overcooked ham I am.

 This concludes today's lesson in loopy, domestic humor. Have a great weekend, guys. :)

  6. i adore full skirts. you choose the best outfit to appear in the background of a tv interview (by chance or not)!

    past year i appeared two times on local tv (somewhere, trying to hide in the background)... ;))))) i really don't like being on tv.
