Lessee... Yesterday was Sysadmin Day, at least according to the System Administrator Appreciation Day website:

sysadmin day

Had I realized sooner, I would have baked a cake. I actually have a good's chocolate, but tastes light and very chocolate-y (for this you would also make the frosting). I have my calendar marked for next year...sorry, but I have to take my furlough days the next week and a half.

On to fashion news...came across this article:

...via Respect the Shoes, and thought it was pretty cool. Imo the shoes look better stained than un-. And where does she find those socks? I'm still working out the socks thing.

Summer sales are bustin' out...thanks to Gigi's Gone Shopping, I got a tip about the Jackie Shell price drop (and cardigan "popback"):

I'd been on the fence about acquiring more Shells...I have Pearl, and love it. So, though I'm already pre-drooling over fall clothes, it makes no logical sense not to stash items for next year, at these good prices.

Being a skirt whore, I need tops, preferably those which don't require ironing. I got the Shell in's final sale, otherwise I might have tried Large Pearl Shell was too big and I had to shrink it (it's still an eensy bit loose), but I found the Cardigan sizing inconsistent and didn't wish to be stuck with something I couldn't wear.

About the cardigans: I got all of my Jackies in X-Large, and they all fit, but very differently? Some were cute tiny sweaters, while Pearl was more a traditional cardigan.

This one fit between Pearl and Navy (I know, I need to take more pictures).
