Annebeth 's Thoughts:

I was PINING for a longer skirt so I just wore this bodycon black dress as a mid calf skirt. And I love love love how this looks, so I’ve set my mind even HARDER on the whole mid calf skirt trend. I wanted to go a bit nineties-grunge but still “pretty” so this is the end result. My hair was still wavy from my straight iron job the previous day! Awesomeness and perfect for this nineties look I had going on.
I ended up staying at home yesterday instead of prowling the shops, because our kitten is ill. Its eye is all gooey and it sneezes all the time, so I took him to the vet and have been rubbing some gel in his eyes and giving him pills and lots of love. The kitty is way too cute and sweet to be sick :(

Oh, and I’ve just finished reading The Grapes of Wrath. Someone here recommended Of Mice and Men to me when I asked for some book tips this summer, and I loved Of Mice and Men so I went for The Grapes of Wrath and my oh my, that book sure deserves its “classic” reputation. Amazing book, very well written, heartfelt and so touching. Both modest and philosophical, a total must read.

I’m going to get me sum’n to eat now!

of mice and men was sad... i really like the outfit. i'd wear longer skirts if i a) didnt live in hot south florida and b) didnt get so many odd looks :P
Annebeth
Annebeth on September 16
yes sad indeed. I love a good sad book, and how all the character's personalities touch you when you read the book and feel the inevitable nearing :(

Wearing a bodycon dress as a skirt is genius! I love versatility. It's so good with the booties. I hope your kitty is okay!!! Maybe he just has a kitty cold. I have Grapes of Wrath but I have yet to read it! I'm reading through Wind and the Willows right now and it is so cute!
Annebeth
Annebeth on September 16
I know wind and the willows and the stories are so cute indeed! I LOVE children's books, I have the sweetest memories of reading Where the Wild Things Are for example.

oh, a mid calf skirt looks good on you! definitely a refreshing change from the various maxi skirt looks here! and i think the fur vest adds punch to the whole ensemble.

Gorgeous style, as always!! I do think the long black dress worn as a skirt looks good! The check shirt is fab too, a nicely constructed look which all seems to work perfectly!!! Chunky belt very cool! Ps, kitten get better soon!

awesome 90's awesomeness, i want your boots! ^^ poor kitty, i hope he's well soon, that's so sad! i love the grapes of wrath, especially all the in-between chapters--like the one on the turtle. quite a few old people here still bury their cash in the backyard..the depression was a scary time :S
Annebeth
Annebeth on September 16
yesss I love the inbetween chapters too, like a larger scope on the whole matter. Almost poetic!

Hope your kitty gets better, but with lots of love from you, it'll be pretty soon, I believe ;) As to Steinbeck, I've been thinking about reading some of his books for quite a long time, and I think it's high time ;) I think I'll go for Of Mice and Men, as soon as I finish what I'm reading now - Milan Kundera's The Unbearable Lightness of Being - fabulous read as well!
