No Laughing Matter

7.09.2011






( F21 top, skirt, & necklace; Target heels )

Actually, it is. You can always tell if I'm laughing in pictures when you can see my gums. It was hard to keep still during this shoot because of the hilarity going on behind the scenes. Trae's cat (his name is Tigger, although he is nothing like that cute bouncy tiger) decided to make Trae his new rubbing post (is there such a thing? I'm not a cat person), and no matter how many times he got shoved away, he kept going back! Trae was getting frustrated (resulting in mostly blurry photos), and I just found the whole thing to be hilarious.

I wasn't the only one laughing though. Trae found it humorous that in order to wear this skirt, I basically couldn't breathe or else the zipper in the back would fall. Even just sitting down makes it come undone! Weird how I didn't have this problem when trying it on in the dressing room. The only solution I can think of is to buy and sew one of those hooks above the zipper... that and don't eat for a month. Psych.

  6. Love your whole outfit! And all of the pictures of you laughing are just adorable. I have never been much of a cat person, but I would have been laughing as well if I saw that mischievous kitty.

  13. There is so much interest in this outfit and the patterns/textures together make it fabulous!
    You've got such a pretty smile! :)

    I can relate to your zipper story. In the past I had a pair of jeans and for the first couple of wears I didn't know the zipper came down on me. For the whole day. Out in public.
    I figured it out one day while sitting around at home wearing them. From then on I had to wear long tunics with the jeans in case it happened again. I can't even imagine the events that ensue when your skirt zipper opens. Eek!

  14. Ooh, I hate it when things that fit you in the dressing room suddenly decide not to fit you! I think there's definitely a conspiracy going on...

    Love all your necklaces!

  15. You look so glamorous, Rachel! In a subtle way! Lol! :)

    And that's a bummer about the zipper. One of the hook and eye closures would definitely help...and hahaha I was like NOO, DON'T STARVE YOURSELF. lol! food is too good to denyy :) <333

  28. Ooh, stripes with lace...very cool! The layered necklace also looks great with this outfit. Ugh, I hate when clothes malfunction only after you've brought them home.
