wiww- come on vogue

linking up with the s.i.l for wiww. 
pleated poppy

participating in wiww is uncomfortable.
i feel awkward striking a pose in front of the camera, 
looking at myself is not on my list of enjoyable things to do,
and i in no way think i have the cutest, trendiest wardrobe in the western hemisphere.
so why do i participate?
because wiww makes me get out of my jammies.
my cozy, flannel, chocolate factory "i love lucy" jammies,
which i would live in all the "i love lucy" time
if it weren't for wiww.  

so thanks linds for wiww, 
and for encouraging me {and others like me }
to get dressed
"show up for life."
and thank you to the rest of you that participate in wiww. 
i know most of you feel awkward vogueing too,
 but i'm glad you do.
your showing up dressed and ready to go
nudges me to show up too!

um, your costumes=fabulous!!! Adorable, love it!

Yeah, WIWW is awkward, especially when you explain it to people who don't have a clue about it. Then it's uber awkward. But the fun outweighs the awkwardness, so bring it!

Love the scarf and the green jacket! I agree, vogue-ing is hard for me too (altho some make it look so easy)

Kristen said...

i love love love the 70's costumes. awesome.

so i tried on skinny jeans on old navy. or at least i tried to try on skinny jeans at old navy. know the problem? same problem i have with wearing tall boots - its called extremely large calves. ugh! i tried. i tried to get over my dislike of the skinny jeans on me. maybe they may a skinny jean with extra large calves :o)
