headache in style

so yeah, i'm totally copying vanessa east of one frozen margarita. i am just totally jealous of how she rocks turbans and scarves. don't get me wrong, i am totally a scarves girl and have a dozen at home but they only get worn at home or at the beach. but today, with full conviction, i decided to wear them to work. sure i got a few stares from people coming into the office and at one point, when my sister came in, she joked and asked if i had a headache. well yes, a headache in style. *wink*

pardon me for the photo heavy post. this is what happens when the electricity has gone out twice in a day and all work is paused because everything we do is dependent on it. so we opened up the blinds and took advantage of the warm afternoon light. and yup, that's armand at my back, totally posing as if he didn't know i was taking photos of myself. haha!

aizkim said...

ooh..you beat me to it. I have been contemplating on doing a turban headband post for days (although mine would be a diy and not an outfit post), i just couldn't get around to do it. You totally rocked it Gizelle...sans the headache! hahaha! And kudos to Armand for that last shot.

Gurl, YOU rock turbans and scarves. YOU ROCK IT SO HARD.

I love these pictures. They're so fun and quirky. And you're so gorgeous.

And daaang, electricity hasn't gone out for years, I believe! Sometimes it's nice when that happens - good to step away from all this silly technology and what not.

superumi said...

i would to wear a headband too in my post one day. been wearing them occasionally but never seems it was good enough as an outfit post. i guess simplicity at its best.
