Baker’s Dozen

7.21.10bI talked to my dad today. He asked if I was going to post on my “twelve fingers”. (I didn’t tell have the heart to tell him this was my 13th outfit.) I told him no, jokes over, I’m leaving the finger counting to the elementary kids and the photoshop tricks to graphic designers. He then proceeded to tell me about a friend of his named Bob — who had twelve fingers. You know what they called Bob in school? Twelve Finger Bob. Clever, right? I would have gone for Baker’s Dozen Bob, but I guess he would have needed an extra finger rounding him out to 13.
Bob wouldn’t have liked me.
So extra appendages aside, thank you all for your comments yesterday. I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one who has to take a few breath’s before walking out the door in the morning. (And not just because I’m unathletic and a heavy breather.)
My sister called me today and told me she liked my “cow skirt” instead of my leopard print skirt. How cute is that?
Bob also called. He said to tell you guys hi and to give you a high six.

  10. I laughed hysterically on the "high six"!! And I do actually know a baby that was born with 12 fingers and the doctor tied this black string around the extra 2 and they fell off weeks later! Weird!!! Love the outfit! Tell Bob to tie off his extra fingers!!

    Dadgummit Kendi, how is this skirt so long on you? I have the exact same one, bought for the fabulous sale price on Tulle, and it's definitely not work-appropriate. I love all the outfits you put together with it, and it looks fantastic on you- it just makes me so envious that I can't wear it like that!

  27. I love your blog πŸ™‚ You have such great fashion sense and you always make me laugh!

    I'm loving the challenge…it's fun to see how you "rediscover" your clothes by being forced to wear them in different outfits.

    Love your pics, you always look fab. I love that your sis called it a cow skirt. I just learned the other day that my husband doesn't know the diff between a dress and a skirt… Really? Is fashion THAT complicated?

    just saw that tank in the store and thought, "that's a kendi top." i deciphered it as a vote of approval/excuse for purchase.

  36. I agree, 12 finger Bob is too expected.. I love how the outfit compliments your skin tone, and how you added just enough color to make the outfit "pop" I could definitely see this photo spread in a magazine..
