It's raining. It started last night, it rained this morning and it's still raining now. Once we finally got up, we went to the gym. Seemed like a good idea at the time: the weather prevented us from doing anything more interesting outdoors and we could feel virtuous, right?
I was on the elliptical exercising my newest skill - reading on the elliptical without getting dizzy and falling off - when it happened. There aren't many magazines at my gym, especially if you've had your fill of news already, so I've been reading back issues of a magazine called More, which I'd never heard of but is apparently aimed at women in my age group (40+).
So I'm reading, and there's this picture of Lili Taylor, who I like, wearing a jacket that I immediately covet. I think about it for maybe 5 seconds before carefully tearing the page out of the magazine and folding it gently in my towel. Maybe 5 seconds.
I require this jacket. The actual one in the photo looks like the fabric is quilted, or at least textured, but I wouldn't mind just doing it in a stripe. It's the general shape that I like, and the zip pockets, and the contrast bands. Oh, and by the way, her shoes.
After we got home, I was going to actually take the picture into the back room and start futzing around, but instead I traced a set of PJs out of the December 2006 BWOF for either a September birthday gift (or a Christmas present, depending on my motivation).
Ah, virtue, I'll miss you ... while I'm wearing my extremely fabulous jacket.
LMAO! I was in the muffler shop a couple of weeks ago, flipping through a two-year old copy of People, when I came across a picture of a dress that had a neckline I liked. The page went home with me, and I felt guilty for a surprisingly long time afterwards!
I'm so glad I'm not alone.
*LOL* Seriously, you've never seen the magazine MORE before! Oh girl, where have you been? It has great fashion articles for women our age...okay, I think I must read EVERY fashion magazine out there...ummm, this seems like a problem...but I have an excuse a 2 hour bus ride to and from work?! :0
Funny post and that semi public defacing... uh.. oh heck it was worth it - that jacket is gorgeous...lol
I love More magazine--I make a beeline for it everytime we go to B&N. That is an awesome jacket and I can't wait to see what you do with it. So, the end will justify the means. Right? :)
That, was hillarious
OOOOHHHH! I'm telling! Give me the number of your gym! Seriously though - now I have to gake a look at that mag!
Reading while using a machine is definitely a skill itself LOL. I haven't mastered that one yet.
