Girly Catch-up Lunch

Rand's Daily Outfit Assessment: No clue. He left for week even before I got out of bed. He went really early and I was a total slug-a-bed.

I met a couple of college friends for lunch at Monica's Aca y Alla where they have lunch specials for $5. Now that's my kind of lunch prices. And we're not talking sandwiches or salads. Mexican food! Delish but dangerous. And I totally forgot to take a picture, and I didn't eat breakfast b/c we had lunch so early, so no food pics from me today.

What I Wore For Another Day of Required Suits:

2009-11-18 combo

  • maroon tweed jacket (Lane Bryant) *
  • maroon skirt (Lane Bryant)
  • lace shirt (Goodwill)
  • pink slip, as color under the shirt, dyed by me (Goodwill)
  • flats (Franco Sarto)
  • flower pin (Target)
  • nude fishnets (Target)
  • silver earrings (via Ross)

* I was looking at this picture and I realized that since my bottom button is unbottuned it looks almost like my jacket is too small, but really it's just unbuttoned b/c you aren't supposed to button your bottom button on a suit jacket.

Exercise:

30 pushups

Your hair looks so cute styled that way!

I love this outfit - what a great colour on you! FYI, that rule about the button applies to men's suits, not women's (we don't have those kind of rules, since women have only been wearing suits for 50 years or so). Think of the 50s era fitted suits - the buttons were never partially undone.

Look at you and the pushups! How are your arms/shoulders feeling?

I like the way you did your hair today! I'm always on the lookout for hairspiration!

I had no idea there were so many rules about suit buttoning!

First time poster, long time lurker! :)

I absolutely love your maroon suit! Forget gray and black and brown...I'm all about the colors, and that shade looks great on you. Way to work it! :)

Take care, Rachel
