No Repeats, Day 4
To show support for A-Dubs falling off the wagon, I'm sporting her favorite color combination: red and black. Okay, I actually had this outfit planned out before I saw her post yesterday, but still, I'll be supportive of that fall. And why not? It's such a great combination!
Today is my office Holiday Party. The holiday party has definitely scaled back over the years, going from an evening at a nice local restaurant with all-you-can eat and drink to a lunch in the office. But still, it's a free meal and an excuse to hang out with some of my more fun co-workers instead of working. After work, Fella and I have a big date! We're having dinner downtown, and then seeing Chicago's own Andrew Bird at Fourth Presbyterian Church. As noted over on Sheila's blog a couple of weeks ago, churches tend to have awesome acoustics. We saw Andrew Bird play at this church last December, and it was amazing. Actually, he's kind of amazing on his own. He's seriously a one-man band, playing several instruments throughout the course of his set. So being a music nerd myself (I can play several instruments too, but not very well) yeah, I'm pretty excited.
Another thing I'm excited about? These boots! And see, even Jude's excited! I think you could count on several hands how many times I've complained about my problems finding a decent pair of knee-high boots. They've been a fashion hurdle for me for years. I had bought a pair by Naturalizer a couple months ago, but even being "extended calf," they were nowhere near big enough for my rippling, muscular calves. I bought this pair from Eddie Bauer because they have a nifty little stretch panel in the back, and the panel actually works and the boots fit! Woo!
Do you have any fun holiday stuff coming up? Have you managed to get over any of your fashion hurdles?
