To whomever googled “compliments from co-workers” and stumbled upon my blog:

Why, hello. You will not find what you are looking for here, if in fact you are looking for compliments from your co-workers. I would suggest asking your peers face to face for compliments. It’s easy to fish for compliments, just do what I do and drop hints as to what you want someone to compliment you on. Like your hair, say “I got my hair cut, isn’t it great?” 99% of the time they will say yes and there you go. A compliment to put in your pocket.
Yes, someone actually googled “compliments from co-workers” and ended up on my blog. I bet he or she was so disappointed. “It’s just some girl in a dress with a weird smile!” that’s probably what they told their friends, who pondered as to what the search query brought. Well, whoever you are, you made my day and I hope you did in fact receive a compliment today. In case you didn’t, you have pretty eyes.
So I wore this yesterday and not today. I’m just trying to keep things honest here on Kendi Everyday and I didn’t want this to happen to me, if in fact we ever meet. B bought me this dress from anthropologie when it went on sale a while back. He’s my little Anthrobot, I have him wired to watch for sales of my favorite items and then buy them for me. I even signed him up for emails and he’s never once complained. Best man ever.
Anyways, I’ve worn this dress before but I wanted to switch it up a bit. Since stripes are so hot right now, I put on my favorite little striped shirt. I also added my new necklace that I received from sweet Courtney of Dolly and Boy Jewelry. It is made from recycled brass bullet shells. How cool is that? I once tried to make a belt out of old recycled bottle caps and I ended up looking like a crazy trash hobo. This girl is talented.

    Hilarious as always. Why I follow your blog ? Because of your humor. You being pretty and having a anthrobot for a husband is an added bonus.

  8. you are my favorite blogger because you say things like "crazy trash hobo" and because you're honest.

    tehehe :)

  9. just wore this belt yesterday and now, especially after seeing this post, i am quite certain it is one of my favorite purchases. totally magazine feature material (1 dress, 3 ways; drop 5 pounds in seconds by defining your waist!). haha

    a few of my coworkers could fit the description of someone who would google that. fishers for compliments, they are.

    even though the necklace is already cute, the extra tidbit makes it a bajillion times more awesome

  10. What a pretty dress! And the stripes are definitely hot.

  11. What a considerate Anthrobotband. See what I did there? I tried to combine the two words and failed.

    That is really a cute skirt! I'm not a co-worker, but I hope you welcome the compliment. I for one, appreciate your honesty, but not nearly as much as I appreciate the hyperlink attached to that (it made me laugh!).

  14. I love that belt. And I am signing my husband up for Anthro emails as we speak.

  15. That belt is huge and vunderbar! I'm sure it's not huge just because it enveloped an entire picture and I'm easily deceived, but it's possible. I also thought when I saw your outfit I was viewing a "today" outfit and not "yesterday" but there ya go. It was all a lie.

    Love your blog Kendi! :)

    The more I think about it the happier I am that I don't have an anthropologie near me – I would just spend so much money. I love your shoes as well :)

    someone googled 'easily distracted support group' and got to my blog – I probably shouldn't have found it as funny as I did…
