This is getting Sirius.
The common phrase "Dog Days" refers to Sirius, the brightest and dog-shaped constellation of stars that shines during the hottest days of summer. Well, these so-called winter days in Hawaii are doggone hot, meaning perfect weather for a sheer long-sleeve, Papaya lace mini shorts and Payless Shoesource open-toed wedges. The edgy and border-line rude bra, sheer, and short concept can be smoothed around the edges with a playful dog-eared faux fur animal hat. Though they're everywhere, in different styles, with different animal faces and ears, and in different sizes, I found my comfy and simple hat at Icing's. You've got a wide variety out there, from having panda bear faces on your forehead to arm-length mittens hanging from your ears. These hats aren't simply for teeny boppers--when paired with outfits like these, they make creative and cohesive looks. That outfit isn't too mature and the hat isn't too immature. Who says an old dog can't learn new tricks?
I apologize for the poor quality of these photos. I seriously need to read my how-to and what's-this and what-the-heck-is-this manual for my uber complex camera. I swear technology is out to get me. I say this, or write, rather, while I await my Creative Writing in the New Media class next quarter. New Media means I'll be learning about writing in the vast technological universe--including the blooming blogosphere. I know. It's mind boogling (a creative word). I'm excited and hopeful to get more than a crash course of this eternal space. Until then, Christmas is fast approaching, as is my return to Seattle, so floor-length skirts and dresses are on their much-needed way!
