Not so little little black dress

As promised, I've decided to continue on my review of Nina Garcia's book The One Hundred.

So I continue:
26. Denim Jacket - yeah, I just steal the hubby's so I guess I have one of these..hehe
27. Diamond Studs - guess here's where I start cheating, mine a fabulous fakes cubic zirconium studs
28. Driving Shoe - alright, I think in Texas these can just be plain ol' Wal-mart or Target flats, but I LIKE the idea of having a separate pair of shoes in the car for driving...hehe Its gotta be easier than driving in 4" heels!
29. Espadrilles - ok, I don't own any of these, but they look like a cute idea for the lake or beach (although I'd love to say I go to the beach more often than the lake, sadly its not true..HA!)
30. Evening Gown - I have one, though I've yet to wear it previously mentioned, the hubby and I don't get out to fancy schmancy evenings much (FYI, the one pictured in the link is mine)
31. Exotic Skin Bag - I would have to rifle though all my bags to see if I have one of these treasures somewhere
32. Fishnets - have 'em, worn 'em, they're classic
33. Frye Harness Boot - nope, don't look girly enough on me..HA!
34. Fur - My mother has a few (including the one pictured..that's me with a cat I had when I was a senior in high school), I LOVE LOVE LOVE them, but due to being married to an engineer (aka cheap unless its computer-related) we "don't have the need for one"
35. Gentlemen's Hat - hubby has one, felt, in black...I borrow it often (now its hunting with him)
36. Gloves - I have opera length red ones, long white ones, black leather ones, brown pleather ones, and one gardening one (lost the other one)
37. Havaianas - yeah, I'll take cheap flip-flops that only last one season..keeps me shopping..HA!
38. Hobo Bag - I'm actually considering trying my hand at making one of these! I have a couple now, but I want to put my own spin on it
39. Hoop Earrings - what child of the 80s/90s doesn't have at LEAST one pair of these?!?!
40. Investment Bag - Sorry no picture, because I can't make up my mind...this is defined as a bag you spend a LOT of money on, with no guilt. I have none of these, but do covet many!!
41. iPod - got an iTouch and LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! I catch up on missed TV on it often and jam out while WiiFit steppin'
42. Jeans - heck yeah!! I have fat-skinny jeans, flare-leg jeans, cut-offs, capris, and more!! and I LOVE wearing them with some sexy high heels!!
43. Jewelry Pouches - I think I have some of these laying around with our gift wrapping stuff, but I don't generally use them
44. Khakis - No picture because I had to wear them TOO much when I worked at Macy's, perhaps I'll revisit them in the future, but for now they hang lonely in my closet, getting no love
45. Knee Boots - oh yeah! I love them! Remember a previous post where I pictured them, they are HAWT!!!
46. Leather pants - umm, no, not on me...not now...I try to stay far away from these AND cow costumes, that would just be WRONG on a phat girl like me! HA!
47. Lingerie - just bought some new VERY pretty ones yesterday!! In fact, I'm wearing some now...tee hee hee
48. Little Black Dress - I don't have one right now that fits, but I made one in a smaller size that hangs in my closet waiting on me
49. Little White Dress - see above, although none exists now...shows WAY too many "curves"
50. L.L. Bean Tote - this is another on my list of things to make...I think it'll turn out cute
51. Luggage - the luggage in the picture is EXACTLY like mine, except mine is more hot pink than barbie pink. This is the luggage hubby had to take to Virginia..HA!

That's it for today now my count is up to 19 for this list.

Well, I'm off for now, woke up with a migraine and just waiting on the meds to kick in
