Back of the Closet Find and an Emmy Rant

Sorry for the late post today guys. I spent my morning blogging hour cheering and jeering (though mostly jeering) the Emmy nominations that were announced this morning. If you’ve ever seen my personal twitter feed, you know that I’m a tv-holic, so it’s no surprise that I have very strong opinions about the nominations. I’m super psyched about the Homeland noms, although I think their only winner will be Claire Danes, and I’m OVER THE MOON for the Max Greenfield nom for New Girl, though he’ll most likely lose. Seriously guys — Schmidt is the best new character of 2012.  Also, I’m accustomed to sci-fi getting snubbed since BtVS but seriously, how could the Emmy voters possibly ignore the awesomeness of John Noble in Fringe this season — or every other season.  And I won’t even get into the snubbing of John Slattery for Mad Men, Emmy Rossum for Shameless, Joel McHale and the rest of the Community team, and Madeline Stowe and the Revenge folks.  Sigh. Okay, rant over.
Now lets get into today’s outfit.  In an effort to force my self to get creative (and save some money), I’ve reduced my spending budget for clothing.  So, I pulled out this skirt, that’s been sitting in the back of my closet, for 4 years, never worn.  At first I thought it would be boring worn with black but the pattern of the skirt is so bold I think the black balances it out.  What do you think?  I’m pretty embarrassed to admit that this was sitting in my closet for so long, with tags on it just collecting dust.  What’s the oldest item with tags hanging in your closet right now?

Wear to the Office : Semi-Monochromatic

Hopping off my sisters idea from yesterday, I also decided to do a monochromatic look today, well semi-monochromatic anyway.  The color – cream.  The twist here is that the lace skirt has a coral underlay but I kept everything else neutral.  And perfect timing too because it is scorching out there and I want to keep my outfits as light as possible.  What do you think?

5 Minute Look

I hope it’s not obvious but this look was a combination of my laziest efforts.  There is no outfit that is more versatile and as much of a no-brainer as a DVF wrap dress.  Whenever my brain hurts too much to create a fabulous outfit, I default to one of the DVF wrap dresses that I’ve accumulated over the years.  If you follow us on facebook, you know that Diana and I went to the DVF sample sale a few weeks ago — one of our yearly, sister-bonding traditions.  This year, I was lucky enough to score this fabulous coral and mint printed dress.  So when I got up and realized it was Monday, and that it was cold, and that I was completely uninspired, I turned to this bright dress for comfort.  But the laziness did not stop there folks.  I also employed my laziest hair style — the sock bun. — Great tutorial for that here – from Wendy’s Lookbook.

So, there you have it folks — I hope that even though it was lazy, it worked.  What’s your lazy day regime?
