Photoshop is a pooper

Dress: Charolotte Russe, Sweater: Rampage, Belt and earrings: F21, Shoes: Target, Necklace: Charolotte Russe


Can we say, "these pictures were obviously not edited by photoshop?" I ran out of my trial, so now I must actually face the fact that I don't know how to use the product code that I bought to install it. Any takers?


Today, I salute you, maxi dress {Didn't I steal this line off of a Budweiser commercial or something? I don't even drink beer.} for being the work acceptable equivalent of a long blankie. Today was a no pants kind of a day. And by no pants I mean cramps hit 30 minutes before time for work leaving me crawling to the nightstand with one hand on my back and using the other to shuffle around in a mad dash for the Midol kind of a day. Sorry if it's TMI, just being straight with you guys. Unfortunately, Mr. Midol wasn't feeling too generous today {maybe he knows exactly how much I despise having to take meds} and didn't do one bit to cut the crampers. For those of you wondering, yes, Midol is male because his job is to rid you of the bad-mood inducing pain and make mother nature's little visit not-so-unpleasant-for-the-flip-side. Also yes, I am wearing a blankie today. After PJs yesterday. Tomorrow looks like I'll be sticking one of those darling knit teddy bear hats on my noggin and I will be ready for night-night time. Or maybe those are only cute if you are under 3.

Love,

Ramsey

Haha. You poor dear. I don't get too many cramps but I get back and leg pain. Bodies are weird.

Photoshop and I are enemies! Everytime I've tried to learn how to work it, it's been a disaster but Paint is a friend of mine! Other friends of mine? Maxi skirts those are fab, on yours is too!

I love your maxi dress! The print is amazing. I think I need to take a trip to Charlotte Russe this weekend.

Hate that Mr. Midol didn't want to work much for you yesterday. Midol never did much for me. 800mg Ibuprofen works wonders, in my opinion.

Love this outfit the layered look is fabulous as is that dress! Love the pattern.

photoshop photoschmop. girl, you don't need it.

also, have you tried those little stick on heating pads from rubA535 that are meant for your upper/lower back do wonders for cramps. i stick one on my lower belly in the morning and it last all day. no one knows it's even there. combo that with mr. midol and you should be good to go. i swear by it every month and i've got the cramps that literally make me sick if i don't do anything for them. tmi? oh well, just spreadin the good word helpin one chickita at a time.

StyleID said...

love your picture. The dress pattern is phenomenal and I really like each item you put together for this look.
