You like me! Of course, you probably don't know me very well.

Stockholm, Day 12

April 19th, 2010 by biscuit

Stockholming Myself is the brainchild of the brilliant Temerity Jane. If you want to join in, she’s got a whole thing going on over there – check it out. It’s not a diet thing, it’s not a weight loss group, and it’s not NOT those things, either. It’s looking at yourself every single day until you like what you see – either through change or through acceptance. I’m in it for reasons I explain a little here.

Shirt and cardi - guess, I dare you. Did you say Ann Taylor Loft?? Really? Nail on the head!

I actually really enjoy the halo effect I get from taking the picture in my work bathroom. I took one at home but somehow when I got it here, it looked like I had a mustache, which I do not. (I am Italian, so believe me when I tell you I keep a very very close eye on that upper lip of mine.)

Today, Stockholm was a chore. I’m not sure why – residual illness, perhaps, but even though I am actually really enjoying my hair the last thing I wanted to do was take my damn picture. Alwbiste, on of my Stockholm sistas, recently asked herself how long she was planning on participating for. A month? Until she started repeating outfits? I could go for entire seasons without repeating an outfit exactly, so that one won’t work for me… I think I need to set an end goal, though. If I don’t know what I’m aiming for, how will I know when I get there? (Thank you, thank you – my self help book, Expressing Self Love through Trite Cliches, will be out next year.)

    I had to go back to check your previous post showing those button up sleeve cuff thingies. What a cool detail, and the fact that it’s included on a cardi and on a pullover is awesome! Love it.

    Thank you! I do love it – I think it makes what is otherwise a weird sleeve length for me wayyyy better.

    I think I settled on two weeks officially because I am already seeing some results. And then… I will just take pictures until I get bored.

    Also, I reeeally like the color on the cardigan.

    Also also, I am way with you on the closet nazi thing.

    Love the colour of the cardigan! Anxiously awaiting the release of your book… 😉

    I’m welcoming contributions!

    Perhaps we should just descend on Arizona. I’m sure we’d have no problem getting onto the base, describing ourselves as closet nazis!

    ALSO? We’re talking about a comment I made on Temerity Jane’s last Stockholm post, about how cleaning out my closet and giving stuff away is my favorite. That kind of closet nazi. Not like whatshisface Sandra Bullock married. Cause, evil.
