Another week - but I don't think I've ever had one that started with such a bang! Today was the drop-in for the photo-shoot for the Unlimited Woman awards* so I had to make sure I wore something suitably outrageous.

I had to factor in washing my tattoo a couple of times today. Which is on my back. Which is hard to reach by oneself in a work bathroom. I also wanted something very light touching my back, so nothing rough.
The skirt is my fabulous 80s taffeta number, last worn here in August with red and purple.
The silky red top underneath is such a vibrant colour - it was really a great find at the WIN Boutique. I last wore it here (2nd outfit) a couple of weeks ago under my leather shirt for Chris' surprise birthday.
here, second outfit) a couple of weeks ago.
here in that same birthday outfit as the red top above. Not very creative of me, but at least I changed up the rest of the outfit, right?
Jacket (Danier Couture, consignment), blouse (Spense, thrifted), skirt (Roland Kerry, vintage 80s, consignment), belt (consignment), shoes (Marc), necklace (vintage fair), ring (local, Oscar & Libby's).
So, the photo-shoot was awesome, although I couldn't stick around for long. I met Carolyne Taylor, the woman who's organizing this event, and some other lovely ladies whose names have already slipped my mind (gah, brain like sieve!). I ran out of my blog cards - must stock up my cardholder!
But I know you are all waiting to see what my new ink is. Here ya go:
When L took this picture, he said, "Your mom is going to flip her can." Heh, sorry, Mom. Here's what my full back looks like now.
Anyway, it's a little achy now, and I worked an extra 2.5 hours tonight on the newsletter, so I'm going to go lie down on the couch. Have a great night!
