Upside-down Flower

A little warning in advance: this first paragraph is all rant, the fashion is right below.

At the moment I'm living out of three, yes three, homes. That would be my old townhouse, my boyfriend's apartment, and my new house. I'm spread out all over the place, running back and forth. Not to mention job hunting. Today I found myself stuck in the middle of nowhere by some strip mall job shadowing for a direct sales job I didn't even want. It's partly my fault, I just vaguely asked what I would be doing but they liked me and rushed me into a training trip. After I had all of my questions answered I thought no way. What is this? They see my resume online, with a very very particular objective, and they call me up and bring me to heckling people in parking lots, attempting to promote a beauty salon with a mediocre flier, and all the while I'm thinking I could do a better job writing the copy and doing the graphics myself! Why is it so impossible to find an entry-level job in marketing that isn't sales? Anyways, tomorrow if all goes well I might snag myself a nice internship at a company I can identify with more.

Anyways, tonight I felt like dressing up with no particular outing plan in mind. Putting on a nice pair of heels and a nice dress is therapeutic. This particular dress I found at the Salvation Army. It was extremely long and had odd corners sticking out of the sides. It was sort of like an oddly-shaped paper lantern. I pinned up the corners and added a belt over-top and voila! Amazing dress!

Oh man, I called my mom half way through shadowing one of those guys and made her pick me at some random strip mall. Bad new bears. You are too stylish to be stuck in Express pants and Gap button downs driving around with a sales binder anyway.

Trade links?

Molly: The EXACT same thing happened to me. I had to call for a ride too. Maybe we're not the only ones either.

Sure I'll add you

That first picture is brilliant. How did you achieve the double shadow of yourself on the glass? Where you standing in a corner?

Yes the window is cornered off so it's probably reflecting from the other window.
