Plastic fantastic

It is picture day at my school today, which means there are a million little girls primping in my office bathroom and asking me for lipstick (the answer is no). All the staff has their picture taken too, and we get a free batch of photos. What am I supposed to do with a bunch of wallet sized photos of myself? Or that big 8x10? One time I wrote notes all over the backs of them and hid them all over for the boy... Oh? You wanted a granola bar from that box? Well it comes with a picture of me taped to it, and a note on the back telling you how awesome I am and that you should buy me more expensive gifts (I prefer rubies to diamonds and keep in mind I'm allergic to gold). Wearing that wool coat for the first time this season? The pocket contains a photo of me and a note (Remember - mushroom, tomato, and spinach omelets are my favorite, in case you want to bring me breakfast in bed). Perhaps I'll do it again this year...

Blazer - thrifted little boys rental tux
Blouse - Cynthia Rowley
Bangles - thrifted
Pants - Target
Shoes - Madeline

Bangles and shoes (with all the plastic bangles, I wanted plastic shoes, but my Melissa ones are so dark purple they looked funny with the black pants... these ones have big plastic buckles, so close enough?)

I'm giggling at you leaving your pictures plus handy tips for the boy to find. I've got a sorta similar problem, my dentist just gave me a full size mould of my teeth. What am I supposed to do with that?! If you have any ideas...

Hiding the pictures is a funny idea. I like the blazer and all the bracelets.

Love the picture idea! I want to do something cute like that for my husband! :) They need little reminders every once in a while. This is a fun way to do it without being naggy! LOVE the plastic bangles. :)

So hilarious, and brilliant of you! I love all the bangles! Everyone says you can find them at any secondhand store, but someone must always come and scoop them up before I get there!

Kristin said...

ha! love it! Could you use the pics as business cards? Or leave a smiley face with a tip at a restaurant? ... not helping, am I?

Fun look! I think these shoes look cute, but I agree - the Melissas would have been oh so perfect if they were bright.

I have several varities of teacher school pictures left over from some previous years...I think my husband is going to be finding them in some precarious places! What a great use for them!

Nice armful of plastic.
Remember back in the day that a sign of popularity was how many classmates pictures you had. I sucked at that game because my dutch Mom only bought tiny packages so I never had enough to trade. Cruel.

Oh I love the blouse! The ruffles at the neck are so sweet!
