Snow is finally melting and the sun has come out for the first time in, like, five days (or maybe I just never noticed the sun because I was curled up in bed with Kleenex and my laptop - aka, ill). I'm finally feeling better, which means pictures...and it would've meant some pictures of my sewing outcomes, but I promise you this: you do not want to see the outcome of my travels in sewing land. It ended badly. If I was a secret agent on a mission, the outcome would've been that everyone died... yeah, that badly. I botched the striped dress, considering getting another one since it was cheap, but not sure if I want to try botching it again. Too scared to fix the other two at the moment, so I'll wait and see how I feel in a few days (if I feel talented in a few days, I should say). Anyway, with the sun out today, we wanted to take some pictures and go outside for a bit -- bad idea. It was bitterly cold.I decided on black tights and a long skirt, which was warm. Polka dots always look good with solids on bottom or top -- I love that balance. So, I know some people who say that short people shouldn't wear long skirts (the one I'm wearing here is about mid-calf) -- I agree and disagree. I believe that mid-calf skirts can be worn by short people -- under 5'3", as far as I'm concerned -- as long as it goes high on the waist. It makes your legs look a lot longer and I find it quite flattering. I would never wear a mid-calf dress, but skirts aren't quite as bad due to that "lengthening of the legs" balance. My opinion only, though, of course!

By the way, hair cut! Check it. It'll grow out a little and then it'll be perfect!
(I like to spike my hair a little in the front, which is the plan.)
