Block party style

I feel like I belong in a photo from a late '70s block party in this outfit...

Cardigan - thrifted Ann Taylor Loft
Blouse - thrifted
Pants - Calvin Klein
Shoes - Jessica Simpson

Can I take a minute and give some props to these shoes? I bought them at DSW one day when I had a $20 coupon that was expiring the next day. After the coupon, they cost $6. And they are the most comfortable heels I own! I don't know if all her shoes are this good, but I'm willing to give a few more pairs a try after these ones!

So my entire living room is carpeted in t-shirts:
It's good though. I did inventory on Friday and figured out what sizes of what shirts needed to be printed before this Saturday. I'm super nervous! It's going to be weird to be sitting there in an all white gallery, with a white table, and people will come browse through and be able to come and meet and talk to the artists and buy shirts. It's such a strange thing. I've never really thought of myself as "an artist", because art is not my career, more just a hobby. But, perhaps now that I've got a gig in a modern art museum, I am a "real artist"... IDK, it's a hard thing to pin down. Anyway, I am super nervous about the whole thing - it seems like a lot of the other artists are more "real" than me. Like their t-shirts are their profession. And I'm just a girl, eyeballing t-shirts on her kitchen table. Gaaaa! I don't think I'll be able to sleep at all on Friday and more importantly, what am I going to wear?!?!

I wish I could be there for the sale, doll! I'll be out of town. You're gonna ROCK it.

Also, I am in love with this outfit. The blouse is so cute, the cuffed jeans so current, and the heels such fun!

Hope the sale goes really well! I know what you mean about "real" artists and what not. I am not even an artist and I still get intimidated by being around a lot of those art types where I work.
