queenelizabeth 's Thoughts:

Today’s outfit, with and without coat. (I love this coat.)
I really need to work on my poses/expressions – I’m not this unnaturally stiff/angry-looking in real life, I swear.

PS. This key necklace is becoming my lucky charm – I wear it whenever possible. People ask me where it’s from and I never know how to answer – long story short, I found it in the drawer of an antique sewing machine my grandmother gave me (AWESOME) and it came with a vacuum cleaner from the 20’s. I could go off on a whole tangent about this sewing machine and how much I love old things that my relatives just happen to have lying around their basements… but that’ll have to wait for another day.

PPS. the reason I know it’s lucky is because I found a use for it the first day I wore it – see, there was this metal tin of chocolates and the lid needed to be pried off, and I just happened to have the perfect tool around my neck… that’s not just coincidence, people.
