lafilleatomique 's Thoughts:

La Fille Atomique

Ugh. Today is one of those days where I’ve got twenty things to do and not nearly enough hours in the day. I desperately need to run to the pet store for cat food,.Merckx (one of our foster kittens) has ringworm and needs to be kept company in his quarantine. I need to go to Kinkos to print out blueprints of the fashion show venue. I’ve got a zillion emails to send out to designers, both introductory and follow up. I need to write a piece about the show for the website. Dishes need to be washed. Clothes need to be folded. Yoga needs to done. I’ve got a chapter to read in my textbook for class tomorrow, not to mention starting an assignment due Saturday. Ack! It’s enough to make me want to crawl under the covers and never come out. Thank god the weekly fashion show/bike expo progress meeting was canceled!

You can tell what kind of pace I plan to take by what outfit I pick out. A leather skirt with no stretch and heels I can hardly walk in? That’s most likely going to translate to watching Bad Girls Club reruns on the couch all day and maaaaybe walking to a nearby bar later that night. Jeans and a tank top with shoes I can jump hurdles in? Now that’s a battle outfit if I ever saw one.

I just snagged these wedges yesterday, but I can already tell they’re going to be one of my favorites. Not only are they surprisingly stable and comfortable, but I can even wear ankle socks with them to avoid blisters from cheap faux-leather. I also scored this top yesterday. It’s so sheer and weightless, so I know it’ll be perfect when temperatures start nearing 100°, yet it also adds a thoughtful chic touch to an otherwise ordinary outfit. The exposed front zipper is completely functional, so I can’t wait to rock this as a summer vest as well. All in all, not too shabby for a errand-running look.

I know what you mean. I have days like that all the time. Don't you wish there was 34 hours in the day? The extra ten would help so much. Those shoes are so cute! I'll have to check the Forever 21 by me for them.
