you beautiful bastard, you suited up!

So, I really wanted to take your advice internet. I did. I had every intention of rocking out Pat Benatar Style (which by the way, you better be ready for a few weeks of Pat up here in Decoybetty land). I wasn't sure what I was going to wear, but I thought it might involve leggings and something with padded shoulders and an outrageous belt.

And here is where I am going to have to make yet another confession, oh internet, I couldn't bring myself to a. spend money on a costume and b. buy leggings. Now, these two things are obviously linked, but so is the fact that as a greenie, I have a hard time convincing myself to spend money on things that aren't going to give value to my life and that I'll inevitably throw out without using again. And leggings aren't pants. I have a firm anti-leggings stance, and the thought of buying a pair of satan's pants just made me CONVULSE.

And so, I took Susan's advice to heart. I had to go as someone who rocked. And so, I went as Janis Joplin. With a few borrowed necklaces from Inspector Climate's sister...and a $3.95 pink boa in my hair (which I'll wear every day some days again, I am sure of it).

Inspector Climate went as Frank Sinatra...Which I enjoyed because I got to tell him to Suit Up! a lot and da-amn does he look fine in a suit or what?


  1. You've got opposite ends of cool covered with Janis Joplin and Frank Sinatra. Very good!

  2. Perfect! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it when you share photos. You're adorable, kitten. And your fella? Handsome, handsome, handsome!

  3. UH-mazing. You both look awesome in your costumes!

  4. A feather boa is always going to be used over and over. Awesome shots, you are such a cute couple!!

    BTW, I'm back! Well, for the timebeing, anyway. Let's see how long I last this time around :-P

    Liv - You're back!! I am so excited. and this is totally what I am thinking - when is a feather boa inappropriate?
