Yeah, babies: I don't feel like coloring inside the lines.
I've been feeling a bit spread thin as of late. Not that life isn't buttering my toast both sides so to speak, but it seems what I've got on my plate is making me lose my focus. And it's been showing in my blog, which seems to have veered off from its fashion focus and is stumbling off the beaten path of, uh, other things, like personal, I guess. Not sure what. I think I'm working some stuff out. Hope you can bear with.
Firstly, let me say a big HULLO to my new readers and followers! I feel I don't thank you all enough for stopping by my blog, and actually reading the stuff, and for which I AM VERY GRATEFUL! Thank you so much, dear people for getting to know me, and letting me get to know you. I'm now at a generous +300 followers and subscribers, and I am terribly fond of all of you!
If you have been keeping tabs on the 'bud, you of course know that my wo-manifest destiny has taken a turn into the world of freelance & self-employment, and so I have put my moolah where my mouth has been (NOT A PLEASANT VISUAL, TRUST ME) and plunked myself down in a hospitable new abode for the Citizen Rosebud Head Quarters. I've been busy packing, moving and unpacking lately, and I am FEELING REALLY GOOD about my new place! When it is all up and running I'm going to have an open house and of course blog about it. In the meantime, please enjoy these snapshots taken from my iPhone:

...and lucky for me, is right around the corner from one of my favorite Sacramento watering holes, The Fox & Goose. Which is where I met Ann from Annimal House for a brewski the other night. For those of you who are already a fan of her via her amazing fashion blog, let me just tell you: ANN IS EVEN COOLER (and more beautiful) IN PERSON. Seriously, one of the coolest people I've ever run across. And just as cool is her better half, Stan (or Stanimal) who also came by and joined us for a pint and a bite. Stan is the techy/artist of Ann's blog. He's the one that came up with the awesome "Color Me Annimal" in which Ann becomes a character from a coloring book that YOU get to color. Check it out here if you haven't already.

And here's what I wore today:
|Bold stripes is like the cheese spread to the Polka Dot print cracker. Tasty!
Note the laser eye-balls, courtesy of my newest shades from Target. I love the Tiffany-blue of the plastic frames and the shiny, chromed & mirrored lenses. No make-up today, but I am hoping my killer black & white striped over-the-knee socks will distract you from my lack of lipstick.
