Odd socks

I was very studiously hiding the fact that I was wearing odd socks in these photos. I am still following a no-tights policy on my right leg where my tattoo is healing, but was unwilling to give up the extra warmth of woolie knee highs on the left. As soon as my leg wear wasn't particularly weather appropriate I was really glad of my maxi Dirndl.

I took these during my lunch break on Monday, not far from where I work.

A few people around the office commented on my odd socks and when I showed them the reason I got to see a few cool tattoos in return. Rather than the "Did it hurt?" and "How long did it take?" queries i got last time, people wanted to know what my Mom's reaction to my new tattoo was. Well, she hasn't seen it just yet, but when we spoke on the phone, Mom said: "But this is the last one, isn't it?" And you know, I think it probably is. Probably ;)

I'll be sure to show you my new addition soon :)

Meanwhile I am hoping the cold snap will snap out of it soon so I can take part in this month's EBEW challenge. I am crazy stoked as soon as I finally succeeded in my first alteration project and can't wait to wear my new and improved red skirt..

Dirndl & blouse: present
cape sweater: market stall
