AJ Wears :: A Beret, Kind of

A couple of things.

A) I struggled with this beret. I was thinking, “Oh, I’m so cool, look at me with my quelle femme féroce vibe in my little hat.” And then when I saw the photos, it looked all wrong, propped up on the back of my head like a marshmallow floating in cocoa. Later observation of some far cooler girls on Pinterest led me to realize that it’s supposed to go closer to my forehead. You know, like a hat.

B) I also feel the need to confess that I never wore this jacket. I took it with me when I left the house, thinking perhaps it was colder than it was. But when I tried to put it on for the photos, I was thwarted by tiny arm holes fighting against my sweater sleeves. So here I am, draping it casually over my shoulders in the ultimate blogger power move. The color looked good with the outfit in photos and what is blogging if not a big fat lie? I could make a career out of Photoshopping trees out of the back of pictures and making my arms look a little thinner (JUST FOR ME, OKAY??). Victoria’s Secret catalog, call me.

3. Remember that time I tweeted about walking my dog with a purse strap? This is that purse, and that is why there is no shoulder strap on this purse. We couldn’t find Zoey’s leash so I grabbed this as a substitute. It never found its way back to the purse. C’est la vie.
