It's not that I have anything against pink inherently -- I think it's just an issue with my skin tone clashing with it. Also, pink items *tend* to be a little bit see-through, if you catch my drift -- but that's the point... don't want anyone to catch any of my drifts, ha ha.
I recently got to try Swirlgear's Capped Sleeve Shirt, which I found super cute!
I've probably mentioned before that I am pretty self-conscious about my arms because my shoulders slope down and results in my arms being too close to my body, which results in major "flab-amplification." (I also tend to store fat in them, so double-whammy.) I can't believe I'm admitting this on here, but it's a known fact for me and I'm getting old enough to not care anymore. So I tend to stay away from "cap-sleeves" because they tend to draw attention to my arms.
However, this shirt didn't really make me feel self-conscious because it seems to cover my upper arms sufficiently. And it wasn't see-through. And I thought it actually looked cute on me, or I'm just not used to seeing myself in pink. Either way, I had an extra spring in my step because for once I wasn't wearing something masculine or frumpy.
|Sorry for the long face... it was dead early in the AM.|
It has been TERRIBLY humid lately, so I was impressed that the shirt did keep the sweat off my body. Overall, a very flattering shirt!
In other news...
I just finished with jury duty and escaped being on a 10-12 day trial, which is great because even in the two days I was out of the office, the workload piled high. I got out particularly early yesterday and was able to basically enjoy a day "off"! What did I do? Stuff myself with sandwiches and Oreos, take a soak bath in my new house, and watch Magic Mike (I'm behind on stuff, so yeah... my review: meh). Although things are crazy again with holidays (L'shanah tova!), birthdays, and everything else, I'm glad I had a brief chance to rest.
Here are some random photos as of late:

|I whine about the trains a lot, and this guy clipping his nails on it is partly why. He also had all these "Money over b@^ches" tattoos...|
