So what's cookin,' average lookin'?

I usually am not one to wear strapless anything (specifically because I lack the bust to hold strapless anythings up).. but I did want to show how the Forever 21 skirt can be transformed into a dress simply with a belt. If I could pull this look off without fear of exposing myself to the world, I might venture to wear it somewhere but since I am pretty sure that that is impossible, I'll only be wearing this in the comfort of my backyard.

This is the other pair of new sunglasses I got, Karen Walker Deep Freeze (I've been dying for a pair of Karen Walker's and tortoise, so these are a good mix of both). The mix of leopard and tortoise went surprisingly well. I've decided that only sunglasses that are 5.75 inches or greater can fit the width of my face and these fall into that category. It's good to finally figure out these things rather than struggle with the thought of whether or not something is going to fit my big head. My friend learned a song/poem in Chinese class when we were in high school that went something like, "big head big head, you don't need am umbrella in the rain because you've got a big head." Granted, it was in Chinese and probably sounded better than what I just wrote but the gist is clear considering she thought of me when she learned it...

  34. Wouldn't have guessed it was a skirt. You could wear it out with a cropped jacket. Would be a shame to keep a great print like that unseen
