Quick Change and Lucky Magazine Model Casting

I have several outfits that never made it to my blog...maybe I should do a compilation of the lost outfits, one day. I just have this habit of taking a picture of the outfit and forgetting to edit/upload it. I should probably work on that!

Anyway, here's a couple variations of one outfit, from the other day. The first is the original outfit, and the second is from when I had to run errands and decided to change into flats. My facial expression, however, is exactly the same!

My navy tights have a large run in them, thanks to my little kitty Lacy. Hence, the black tights. Not ideal, but I had to work with what was clean.

When I changed into flats, I changed the tights and belt and got rid of the necklace (which was eventually replaced with a scarf). Miku decided she wanted to be in the could I say no to such a perfect pup?
