The Deep Depths

Today I got home from work and just looked horrible.  For the last few days I haven't been feeling very well, clearly fighting off a cold.  So instead of attempting to take pictures of the pathetic outfit I wore to work, I started digging through my closet.  As a result I came across a skirt I have had for nearly 10 years.  I bought it a long time ago when I first became a manager at the local movie theater.  It was probably the first classic black skirt I ever owned at full retail.  In those days, it barely fit my tiny frame and laid pretty low on my hips but now, it fits much better!  (Can you believe I am actually complimenting my curves?)

Blouse: H&M
Hair bow: Forever 21
Skirt: Ann Taylor Loft
Leggings: DKNY
Heels: Target
Necklace: Dominique Cohen for Target
 

I also wanted to point out my fantastic eyeshadow job today.  I typically wear neutrals but I own a palette by Three Custom Colo Specialists called Smokey Mountain and everytime I wear it, I get complimented so I just wanted to share!  (You can click to enlarge)  This picture also showcases the great fringe trim I gave myself this morning!
