true confessions



  1. I was freezing yesterday and felt half naked.  Like I forgot to put pants on.  Not a cool feeling.  So I am making that dress the very first "GIVEAWAY" item.  I have no idea how other blogs do their giveaways so I am just going to say. . . if you want it,  comment on this post before Sunday using code word:   HALF NAKED.  I will write your name on a little scrap of paper and pull it out of my hat to choose the winner.  Sound like a plan? K. 
  2. I used to hate Lady Gaga.  HATE.  with fangs and claws.  Then someone I respected explained that she is just using the pop machine as a platform for her performance art, and I paid closer attention.  I am still paying attention.  
  3. I got my leg warmers from Walgreens for $1.99.  
Thats all I got right now.  Besides feeling WAY more comfortable and warm today, I am just listening Lady Gaga Radio on Pandora.  I just discovered this Pandora thing last week, can you believe that!!!?? Its like low commitment genre sampling.   I usually listen to old stuff but this past week I have been exposed to so many things out of my comfort zone.  My opinions and perceptions are being challenged and long held intolerances are being broken down.  Pretty nice actually.

I could see myself wearing that dress as a tunic, so here's the code word: HALF NAKED

I love this outfit, especially how you belted the scarf. I have a lot of handknit and crocheted scarves - I should try this.

Half Naked!

That dress is adorable!!

I love your scarf is it a scarf? It reminds me of a child's favorite blanket made by nanna! It totally looks like a girl version of Linus van Pelt.. I love it! I may have to start wearing blankets to work!

Second Skin said...

Don't you guys just like typing HALF NAKED!! Its so fun to me for some reason.

Krystal said...

I have to admit, I love Lady Gaga. It's hard to turn away from her sometimes, there's always something unique to see.

Plus, have you seen her in this month's American Vogue fashion editorial as the witch from Hansel and Gretel?? One word: AMAZING!

idée_géniale said...

HALF NAKED! (Oh this is a little dirty to do at work!)

Wow, your sister is hard to shop for! Good luck with that! You look super cozy cute today. I tried that scarf/blet thingy and it jjsut doesn't work on me. Maybe i'm too much of a shorty?? anyways, will keep trying.

jayne said...

love the belting on the scarf!

I've never thought of gaga as performance art...but that's definitely an intriguing angle

Annie, Time Enough for Drums said...

Amy said...

Why is it that calling something art makes it okay for most people? Even if Lady Gaga means all this satirical and wants to hold the music industry the mirror in the face. I still don't like her or her music.

This outfit is so much better (and warmer) than yesterdays. ;-) I really like it. Is this scarf handmade?

carly. said...

Alix said...

being all her pop-ey loveliness, lady gaga has a killer voice! I can see what you mean by feeling like you were going pantless, I have long legs and shirt dress like that never work for me.

Alix said...

Amandromeda said...

Alright! HALF NAKED! Very pretty happy about this, especially thinking of how much i liked that dress I bought from your Etsy Shop! I'm sure it's gonna be longer for me (talking as if I won it! :D )...

I really like how you put your scarves under your belt, I want to do that but I guess I'm not that brave... Anyways, I'll try one day! Optum!

HALF NAKED :)

i love the belt over your scarf, amazing look!

A and A said...

ok... I will wear the hell out of this while in Bali, soooo HALF NAKED!!!!

On another note. Pandora is my haven. Literally run out of my free 40 minutes by mid-month, then have to wait anxiously till the start of the new month. While I wait, I use GrooveShark, which I say is just as good in different ways. Check it out, you'll love.
Also, have you watched Grey Gardens yet? You just must... too good to be true.

I am willing to be chilly in this adorable number. I love that you aren't succumbing to the pressures of stressful giveaways...I appreciate your style.

You're outfit today is so cute! And it looks so warm!

WILDasaMINK said...

Ok, so I wish I was currently wearing what you're wearing here....it's FER-EEEEZING in my apartment, and you look so warm and cozy.
Yes....freezing, and I'm not even "HALF NAKED" (yippee, now I should be officially entered into your giveaway!)

You've also inspired me to pull out all my leg warmers-I've got gazillions and I haven't worn them in a few years, perhaps I'll give them a whirl AGAIN. have a good weekend!

Anonymous said...

I've heard that many times before, especially from my sister. But, I work at a Forever 21 so I usually find things when I'm cleaning ;) So, I guess it just takes a lot of time, patience, and hard-core digging to find something good ;D

Anyway, thank you thank you so much for your comment. And, I will definitely be updating soon :)

I also hated HATED Lady Gaga but I am slowly changing ways I think...

Jen said...

Oh, I'm rather far away from you but I'll enter anyway - HALF NAKED. Although I do understand if you don't want to post to the UK!

You look so utterly lovely in this outfit - I love the leg warmers and boots! :)

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

I just came across your blog as I was sitting in my bedroom HALF NAKED. (No I wasn't, but I'm trying to be sneaky here..)

Anyways, I love your giant scarf and your photos are so gorgeous. I have an affinity to say that to anybody who is lucky enough to have SUN.

I think I am too late to say Half Naked!

Melanie said...

Oooo man I missed this HALF NAKED business! Next time I guess!
Pandora is great. I listen to the Modest mouse station and it plays all my favorite music from other artists that I like too. I even like some of the new music they played.
