Where's the party?

I'm pretty sure I gave new meaning to the phrase "all dressed up and nowhere to go" today. I must have been asked a total of five times what kind of party/event/photo shoot I was headed to this afternoon. If only they knew that this outfit was put together out of the enormous "no" pile of clothes that has been hoarding the space on my bed for I won't tell you how long. I was too lazy to dig through drawers. Actually, I was afraid that the scary cousin of the monster in my closet would pop out due to all the angriness I've been stirring up in them with my indecisiveness and determination not to tidy up. And this bun? It would have stayed sans hairspray, my hair is in such desperate need of a wash. Can we say sanitary?

Regardless, I'm flat disappointed noone took the hint and invited me to a fancy-schmancy party. After hearing tell of it all day, I would have certainly liked to attend one. I think this skirt would be perfect for some twirling and booty-shakin'. I even wore special matching undies. Just incase. Shame. Better luck tomorrow. I'm thinking of going big with a Carrie Bradshaw tutu. Over the top? Maybe. Have I been watching too many Sex and the City reruns lately? Probably.

Love,

Ramsey

I think a Carrie Bradshaw tutu would definitely provoke an invite to a fancy party... maybe 2 fancy parties...

I wish I could find the nerve to dress up like that with no where in particular to go. It makes me a bit self concious when people stare wondering what in this world I'm doing walking around all dressed up! You look beautiful, that skirt is fantastic :)

Ramsey, you are a doll! You have no idea how many times i've been "all dressed up and with no where to go"... so when me and sean do this we always come up with stories for strangers and it's so much fun! it's like our own little secret hehe

steffy said...

Love it.

I like to get dressed by wearing "whatever is next in the closet" so that every day is a surprise. Sometimes that means that I'm dressed up for no reason! So I get the same reactions. Where are you going? What are you doing today? Why are you so dressed up? Can't a girl just look pretty sometimes? You do!

I love the skirt and how you accessorized this outfit. The pearls add that little touch of glamour.

Melissa said...

There's no such thing as too many reruns of Sex and the City.

I love the simplicity of this, but the bun and the layered necklaces add SO much fun to the outfit. You look awesome!

Ramsey, loving the hair and the total look! It is gorgeous. Could you please share a tutorial on this bun? Please, and thank you!

Bre said...

If I saw a girl on the street looking like that I would invite her along to a party or maybe just coffee since it's day time and I would also have no where to go. You look very snazzy and chic!
Cheers,
Bre

Natalie said...

leigh said...

Loove. I get asked that sometimes too--"where are you going today? do you have somewhere special to be?"
At first I would get annoyed and feel over-dressed.
Now, I am embrace it!
