Vaguely Intellectual Thursday

After yesterday's Vaguely ethnic Wednesday (which I totally made up), here is today's Vaguely intellectual Thursday (which I also made up):
 Glasses - thrifted American Optical horn rimmed glasses
Shirt - thrifted Target SAMPLE
Belt - thrifted
Skirt - thrifted Target SAMPLE
Tights - the dawn of time itself?
Shoes - Modcloth, free courtesy of Daddy Likey!


Le belt de awesome:


I'm finishing up all my holiday t-shirt orders and just screenprinted my first apron:

My sister is a crazy Martha Stewart-like woman. She's an interior designer who loves to cook, bake, garden, and just basically be perfect. She has a bunch of aprons, but they are all too beautiful for her to wear... so her husband asked me to screenprint her a white one, so she can dirty it up and then wash it! They love Mad Men, so I drew up a Betty Draper for her apron (and made it in robin's egg blue to match her kitchen!)

Last night was my book club meeting, which is endlessly awesome and hilarious. We spend an hour discussing The Old Man and The Sea (we picked a super short book because of all the insanity around Thanksgiving and a lot of my friends have grad school finals now). Then we spent an hour and a half discussing what book to read next (answer: Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout, which won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction this year)

Trivia of the day:
How many kids have puked in my office so far this week?
Five!
