To Strike a Pose

It's come to my attention that if you were viewing my blog in either Google Chrome or Firefox that you've been greeted with a big old hunk of code up top.
You'll notice the issue has been resolved.
And I wanted to send out a special "THANK YOU" to my lovely friend Alyssa for pointing out the code drama.  Alyssa, you are as sweet as you are funny and talented!  Thanks so much for holding my hand through the drama.

Now, on to the Fall Fashion

Apparently, I'm a cheesy poser.


Lexi says when she's taking my picture I'll strike a pose,
you know, something like this

and then I won't move until I've heard the shutter go off.

But that's good modeling right?
Forcing the photographer to take the picture you can see in your head, even though the photographer can see the actual picture with the camera.

Black Turtleneck: Wished for Here & Found at a thrift store for $2
Hippy Dress worn as skirt: Head shop somewhere in STL
Boots: Hope you aren't getting sick of them
Socks: "Stocking Stuffer" (see what I did there? pun definitely intended) from the hubby last year at Christmas
Necklace: ABC Trading Co Bracelet turned into a necklace using black ribbon
Earrings: Coldwater Creek
Belt: Thrifted

For more Fall Fashion Week Fun and participants who are rocking some more natural poses than me, head on over to Emery's blog moms are for everyone!

It has become a tradition for Peter to put new socks in my stocking each Christmas. What can I say, he knows my weak spots. Hahaha! Cute outfit - love the turtleneck! :-)

You are adorable and so are your outfits. Your cheesy poses are so fun. I use to add more of my cheesy poses to my blog than I do now, but I added a semi-goofy one this past week and of course that's the one that was used in The "it" List this week(u can see for yourself at my blog if ya want), yikes. :)
Thank you so much for your nice comments at my blog!

Okay, I really love what you did to that bracelet to make it a necklace. It's a really clever idea, and I never know how to wear necklaces with turtlenecks but you nailed it!

Well done!

I love the whole ensemble (did I even spell that right?) and the umbrella totally completes it! Oh and your braid is cute too.
And you're not an internet stalker.. I consider us friends too :)

Totally love the socks and boots! The reason this fashion week is so fun is that I am getting some great tips. Like your bracelet into necklace, would not have crossed my cluttered mind!
