À la carte

9 Dec

?????????????????????????????????????

Who cares what the inside looks like really! Don’t believe me, then why do you spend entirely too much time getting dressed before exiting your home, why do you hit the gym and watch your caloric intake? Or why do you loathe the girl with the jiggly thighs in a short skirt and the guy with the man-boobs and threadbare shoes? Because what’s on the outside matters and everything else is second.

You hate to admit but it’s the truth. Take this shed for example; some high school-er lowlife tagged this family’s garage making it a real eye sore. Due to the extreme vibrant colors used to vandalize the family couldn’t cover it up, the dad just decided to repaint it all together to something more ascetically pleasing. Now this is a favorite backdrop to passerby-ers snapping a quick shot on their running trails.

Another example that beauty is more than skin deep are my lips. I had an allergic reaction to some meal I ate (Skinny-Jesus intervening) the other day and my lips swelled to the size of water rafters. I didn’t want to leave my apartment let alone take a pic for this post. I did what we all do when in doubt- over compensate.

I figured this would be the best time to wear my latest purchase. If you’ve been following my “Thinpsiration” posts you know I was on the hunt for a full-length camel coat. I even did a post about how it’s the premier fall/winter accessory over at “Mused.” This Stafford camel coat was originally priced at $250 but on sale for $150 and I paired my friend’s employee discount with a 25% off coupon and took this amazing coat home for $78.75. Not only am I a size guru but I can make a deal of out nothing.

This coat is so smashing and everything I hoped it would be oversize, enveloping and sharp. You don’t even noticed my hard balloon lips.
