Also, these pictures were taken after an FRG event to brief us families on what it's going to be like for the soldiers on their base over there. I think we got home around 9, and I decided to take some pictures "really quick" before bed. That always takes twice as long, unfortunately. Sorry about the quality, folks.

|This is face was made at my husband because he kept distracting me and making me take awful pictures. That goofball!|
Okay, confession time. At this FRG event, a woman I know complimented me on my belted scarf. "I've just never seen anything like that!" She said. (My favorite kind of compliment.) And I took it. I just thanked her, told her I had been inspired by her recent use of a waist belt, (which I actually was, I just would never have gotten this brilliant idea simply from her outfit) and acted like I made up the very idea of a belted scarf myself. Sorry, fashion blog community, I know I got the idea from many of you. I'm sorry I didn't admit it.
Also, I see (especially with the pictures) how way-too-long this scarf is for this technique. Ideally I think it should have come down to around my hips. Not near-knees! Goofy. Anyway, you live (and photograph and post and blog) and you learn. I'm pretty proud of the tied belt, though. I felt almost like a nerd or an orchid.
If you would like to leave any disparaging comments about how I tried to fix a lame outfit with a scarf, belt and colored shoes, or how dark the pictures are, or just your general what-have-you, feel free.
(Except that messy nightstand.That's the husband's, not mine.)
