To Battle the Snark

I'm not usually one for sparkles in the daytime.  But, I was battling a case of the snarks and wondered if breaking my rule with a little bit of shimmer when the sun was out would change my mood.

I mean, you can't tell from that first picture, but the majority of the initial pictures that Lexi so generously took looked more like this one...


That is until we happened upon this twisty belt sculpture.
It was like Elaine, my muse, was speaking to me. 
She was encouraging me that  sparkles in the daytime are okay.
She gently whispered, "Don't let the snark ruin your outfit."

Although, I kind of feel like Elaine might more likely say, "Snap out of it, crab, you're messing up your look!"
So, I took her advice.
Or at least, I took the advice of the magical voice in my head.

Snarky Sparkles
White Blouse (F21); Gold Sweater (Banana Republic ~ 2nd hand)
Red Belt (Charlotte Russe); Black Skirt (gifted)
Red Tights; Black Strappy Sandals (Me TOO)


Wait, is admitting that I take advice from a magical voice in my head grounds for institutionalization?
