HI MY NAME IS EDNA MODE. This outfit could be inspired by the first three colours of the rainbow, or the degree of hotness on those beloved Taco Bell sauce packets (6/27). Chugging my way through this backlog of outfits, I see how this summer my H&M orange pleated midi skirt has been a fave for work and going out. It hits just above the knee and makes my legs look thinner, concealing my thighs that would make Marion Jones proud. [Update 8/25/11: Featured on the Ruby-Eyed Okapi for modesty in fashion. I'm so flattered! Thanks Victoria!]

This was right after I dyed my hair black too. Ended up with an awesome mod asymmetrical bob that works great with red lipstick and retro-flaved pieces. Does this remind anyone of Edna from the Incredibles? The golden hour is pretty - I should try for more shots then. I used to think that photographers photoshopped in all the perfect lens flare and excess of light. Yes I notice the gunk on my shoes. That's what you get when you climb into dirt trying to get a perfect shot in 4-inch stilettos.

Why can't it be both fall and summer at the same time? Alternate days to make it exciting. I can't wait to wear chunky knits, long and drapey pieces, loose sweaters, knee high boots with super high socks, scarves, scarves, scarves! I'll also miss the romanticism of tearing down the streets in a red-hot convertible (okay, maybe only in Florida with Cassandra) but oh the lovely sun and warm summer nights ...

For now, it's 3 days away from St. Louis and 6 from the start of senior year. Last time I checked, it was only senior year in high school. It's both an exhilarating and scary time, but mostly I am ready to shop for some cutesy school supplies (for once in my life - I know where to save so I can dole out the green  for the closet mmhmm) and install a basket on my bike. Spent a few hours scouring the web for deals on textbooks, but even with a bunch of rentals we've rung up quite a bill. Curse textbook companies and their "new cover, new edition" crap. Until robots have feelings and I can fly a hovercraft to work, I'm not buying that much has changed since the last issue.

You look amazing in this outfit. I like your hair. It's truly so cute! I've been told I look like a lot of various people, sadly. Not sure who I have been told recently though. As a child in the 80s I got "Sarah Jessica Parker" from when she was a teenager in movies like Flight of the Navigator.
