Remember when I said that one of my big responses to stress was to throw money at it? ["it" being the imaginary stress monster breathing over my shoulder, of course]
Well, I'm at it again. I bought myself a new toy. And, if I'm being perfectly honest, I really wish it had arrived two days ago - I feel like this graphics tablet would have come in handy in handling yesterday's exposure problems. As you might be able to tell, I'm just having fun doodling at this point.
Also, I've gotten really into ankle pants lately [and by lately, I mean over the past year]. They're probably not a particularly flattering length, but I don't even care - I like 'em anyway. The important thing is that they're not too long! It's a sartorial miracle, especially when I find ones that actually hit me at the ankle. Take these pants, for example - I compared every size 6 within the Old Navy store to ensure I found the ones that were shortest. There's a surprising amount of variation in the length of these pants, for the record. I couldn't find any sort of label declaring certain pairs tall vs. regular vs. petite, but there was a good bit of difference from pair to pair.
Also also, this post title is completely stupid and nonsensical and in no referring to the manic pixie dream girl trope. Instead, it comes from a combination of the style of my pants, and the ridiculous excitement I was feeling while doodling on these pictures earlier tonight. I'm just going with it, because who can actually think of good post titles anyway?
