Lady in Red

Sitting here late Tuesday night, going through my insane number of blogs, I visited the Sartorialist blog.  I often forget about the blog, because it won't come up on my blog reader, unless someone mentions it.  (Thanks Tam)  I love looking at all the cool pictures, of real people in real fashion.  

So, everything was going along just fine, at 11:30pm, until I came across this picture of a beautiful Rageous Woman.    

I love that she is strutting her stuff and looks fabulous, BUT I suddenly realize how terrible I look at that this moment.  

Me: mismatched sweats, hair in bun all over head, pale skin (yes I get pale or gray), stuffing my face with saltine crackers thinking I need to go back to the gym tomorrow.   

On a brighter note: I do have shoes similar to those, big glasses and a fly black purse...must work on a coat (not in red though, clashes with the red hair) to replicate this look.  I'll get back to you on that...say April, it's too cold now!  

*Note to self: Don't view Sartorialist until you are having a great hair and fashion day unless you want to feel like a loser!


  1. I was thinking the same thing when I saw Tam's posting, but hey, you can replicate the look with a pair of slamming black boots!!

    This picture reminded me of why I was at the gym this morning. I'm trying to go for a 35 year old body, although my knees are clearly telling me that it's gonna take a lot of work..lol!

  2. to funny...I cant wait for April.

  3. Tami,
    I have never seen the Satorialist blog before LOVE IT! I was just talking about how uncute I am now. I don't buy clothes I don't have hair so I don't really need to comb it. All of my energy goes into making my daughter cute. I am going to change though. I want to be 50 and Fabulous! (I love the picture of mother and daughter in Paris)

  4. HA! The sweats, the crackers, the gray complexion...I can so relate.
