Hello, all you vertically-inclined sylphs!
Long time no see! How’s the weather up there?
Kidding, kidding. But don’t you love when people think they’re being so cute while asking that [unrelentingly banal] question?
Yeah, me neither.
(But the weather is really hot and humid up here. I sorta hate summer. I sorta hate sun. I’m sorta grouchy and sorta pale and sorta clammy. My definition of “good weather”? London in the winter. You read that correctly.)
Back on topic: I have been incognito/flying low for a few months now. I haven’t had a haircut. I haven’t been to the dry cleaner. I certainly haven’t had a manicure, a pedicure, any-cure OR had the inclination to break out the iron, let alone the camera.With my fiance and I running a no-fiscal-contributions campaign in Massachusetts for State Rep; my taking on blogging as a component of my day job; grappling with the initial stages of wedding planning AND working on an illustration project on the down-low, I have become terribly negligent with myself. Tall (and all) style mavens, I’ve missed you! I promise I’ll be better!
But as some kind-hearted, open-minded individual recently nominated me for Boston’s Best Fashion Blogger (not Boston’s Laziest Fashion Blogger), I feel even more called-into-duty. So I have been compiling a list of summer “finds” along the way—most of them ‘regular size’ pieces masquerading as talls. Hey—at this point, I welcome any well-fitting pieces that catapult me from “frazzled bag-lady/sociopath/possible hipster?!” to “land of the living”! So that list will be coming imminently.
In the meantime—I hope you will excuse this dose of heavy handed extortion—my fiancé and I have been nominated as 1 of 10 finalist couples for a honeymoon to Iceland!!! The only catch? We need votes now through July 22nd (We’re ‘The Mysterious Traveling Duo‘)!! Lots of ‘em. So in the name of love in/for Iceland (and not having lots of monies), we made this stop motion animated music video for you, dear readers and friends. There were some tears, papercuts, and “artistic differences”, but I like to think it all worked out, because now we have a little indie-rock memory of being nominated, regardless.
Please enjoy, share, and vote if you’d be so kind! And more content to come soon.
