Even BCBG Can't Salvage This Outfit

Alright, so what if it looks like a lampshade? Well, to Mr. Lipstick it is downright comical, although he was too polite to say, "lampshade." Instead he said, "fashionable." I'll take that.

I'm talking about my favorite skirt. BCBG. Taupe-ish. Tiny little stripes in the fabric. Beautiful pleats at the waist. I wore it to church on Sunday. Here, I'll show you a picture.
Notice those pretty little pleats and the belt that...oh, wait-how could you notice those delicate features? Yes, I have mismatched footwear. I am not a fan of either one.

Das boot entered the realm of Lipstick on Thursday. I really shouldn't complain. I have been treated intermittently for tendonitis for twelve years and have avoided the boot until now. I have to admit that my ankle does feel better when I am wearing it. I don't even know which tendons are inflamed this time around. Everything everywhere hurts. At night it hurts as much as my tummy the day after my C-sections. And grrr...I can't even cheat. Gimme three steps, gimme three steps mister (random Lynyrd Skynrd tribute); not meant to be. My foot plus the floor equals cringing and tears. I have a follow-up visit in two weeks, but I'm afraid the boot will be leaving with me.

Any fashion ideas? Any tendonitis stories? I'm a captive audience.

Sigh...this is not the greatest Lipstick fashion phase, but my goodness, at least I don't have to wear Maryland's new uniforms...

although mismatched helmet and gloves, mismatched footwear...whatever, it all sucks.

I think the boot out weighs the the rest of the outfit. No one is going to notice the skirt I'm afraid.
