Photog Strike is Off...

S is back on duty. Strike will likely be back on in a few days but for now, I will relish the moment :)

Curious as to how I got him off the strike this time? Sans Chinese Food?

I told him that since I don't have any pictures to post, I've resorted to posting about nuts and camels drinking cola (see last post).
S: "WHAT??? You're going to have to put that *baby* on permanent draft...
Ela: Too late buds, it went out at 1:00am. I cannot retract. I have 28 comments, which means people have already seen it. I cannot pretend it did not happen.
S: Oh gosh. Tell me you didn't....should we shut it down?

He was seriously appalled at my post. Remember, this geniune concern comes from the guy that doesn't read my blog, only the comments. Hey, whatever works...cause here we are...

Cropped Tuxedo Jacket - Zara, Basic Tee - H&M, Shorts - Vintage,
Necklace - Kenneth Jay Lane

Wooden Bracelet - Bitter Sweet

Suede Shoes - Seychelles, Green Epi Noe - Vintage Louis Vuitton

Watch - Michael Kors, Earrings - Winners

Please excuse the mosquito bitten pale, pale legs :)

Oh, also I thought it'd be fun to enter Polished Sense's Scarf Contest where the lovely Jessica asked us to get *creative* with our scarves.
Drop by to vote for your favourite(LOL, does not have to be me) entry!
Voting begins 12:00am CT

  39. So why was S. off-duty to begin with? Maybe it's time you got yourself a remote for your camera ;-) In any case, you look lovely in the pics and you chose some pretty colors (red/green) - reminds me of Fall already! Great necklace too! KJL makes some incredible pieces... sigh.
