Things to try '09

I've decided this is going to be my year of big and small risks. I'm not quite ready to talk about the huge risks yet, much less do. For now only the intended fashion daredevilry will have to suffice.

Assuming I work out more than once every three months, here's the stuff that will be at the top of my shopping list this year. YES, year! I'm something of a writer, see? We're in it for the job satisfaction. Whether we like it or not.

1) The jumpsuit
I like the slouchy knee length version. It's playful and can drape right over the wobbly bits. Like pretty model person, I'd go with dark colours like navy, black or olive.

2) The shoe bootThis one requires some 'nads because it could make my legs look like short stubs. I don't care though, I love them that much. And as long as I go with one that cuts below my ankle bone, I'm good. Despite the oodles, I do not have cankles. Yet.

3) The boyfriend jacket

This isn't the ideal picture for it. I'd like a longer, slouchier, less structured version although a longer one means risking a bubble butt. This one would be my lazy-last-minute go-to. Fuzzy pits, stubborn love handles and serious dearth of pretty tops - all taken care of.

4) The med-sales-rep bag

Definitely not in this ghastly colour and preferably not in patent leather either. One with longer shoulder strap would be ideal. This takes care of my lust for a nice structured tote as well as my tortoise-like tendencies - I must necessarily carry everything my bags can possibly accomodate. The Catholic in me is a sucker for paisa-vasool.

5) The fringe dress

I am currently in love with fringed anything and everything. This ombre flapperish dress was even better than the selfcoloured versions I had imagined. Picture the aforementioned jacket on this one - nice, huh?

That's all I have to say about that. I go beddy bye now.

Btw watch Changeling and skip Blindness if you know what's good for you. Reviews coming up later.
