Man Voice and the Meeting

Daily Outfit, 1/20/11





The Breakdown:
  • Peach ruffle blouse - Sunny Leigh - Nordstrom Rack
  • Red cardigan - Gap
  • Brown cords - Banana Republic
  • Light gold shoes - Kenneth Cole Reaction - ??? (v. old)
  • Cream/multi stripe scarf - ??? (v. old)
You can't tell this blouse is peach, but I swear it is.  It's a pale, pink-y peach.  With ruffles!  I know giants aren't supposed to wear ruffles, but I don't have a very large chest in spite of my overall size, so large, soft ruffles generally work for me.  The color of the cardigan is a bit off too, in these pictures.  Gap describes it as "soft red" but I'd call it coral - in the pictures it just looks bright red.  I don't think it looks bad with this blouse, it just doesn't look the way it's supposed to.  I agonized over which shoes to wear with this, but decided on the gold shoes to pick up the row of gold beads on blouse (you can sort of see them in the close up shot).  I actually quite liked this outfit, but not the way it photographed.  You'll just have to take my work for it that these colors worked well together.

Even though I am not at all well, I had to go into work today for a meeting/training.  It had been postponed for one reason or another for a couple months and now we were down to the wire.  Unfortunately, I was the one doing the training, so I had to talk for two hours.  Even more unfortunately, my voice has become low and hoarse due to this darned plague.  Darn you plague! (shakes fist towards the heavens)  Yeah, basically, I have a man voice.  And it is not at all pretty.  When I am not deathly ill, I actually have a fairly high pitched voice.  In fact, I've always wished for a sexier, huskier voice.  But, no.  No, this cold shot me right over sexy, straight into drag queen territory.  It was a great meeting.

But, at least I was finally able to post an outfit.

Happy Thursday, All!
