Oh Miley!

Yet another example of my scitzophrenic style.  At least I never get bored.

Allow me to get this little factoid out of the way:  I'm wearing a Miley Cyrus for Wal-Mart t-shirt.  Before you start in on the mockery, I should also confess acquiring a funky zipper tank top and silver leggings via Ms. Cyrus.  Do you think less of me?  Perhaps you should.  Would it help if I told you that said pieces were $3 each?  That's worthy justification, right?

In all honesty, there is a lot about Miley that I like.  Her upbeat rocker tunes are actually pretty good.  It's the slower, country-ish sound of hers that I don't prefer.  I don't think her voice is very pretty, so her attempt at pretty songs hurt my ears a little.  Pop/rock songs are way better for her cool, raspy voice.  Ah, listen to me go on like I know something about musical talent...I just know that the last couple of times she's been on American Idol, she's done slower songs, and they were a bit painful.  In any case, thanks for the tee, Miley.

I'm slightly obsessed with these dark skinnies I picked up at Valu Thrift for all of $7.  They remind me what good denim is like.  They're high-waisted, have barely any stretch, and fit like a glove.  Unlike other jeans, they don't stretch out after one wear.  Sure, I have to unbutton them to sit down and my normal food intake is cut in half when I wear them, but it's totally worth it.

This day (Saturday) was spent running a few errands with my mom and then helping Elaina make a tutu.  By help I mean keep her company and try to keep the fabric off the floor.  The finished tutu was revealed the next morning and it's SO adorable.  It was made for Lori (aka Girly Muse), and I can't wait to see how she styles it!  I also can't wait to get my very own big girl tutu!

You look fabulous and I've been eyeing those Miley tee's too! I'll have to check here to see if they are marked down as well to $3. I love a good bargain!

I actually really like Miley Cyrus. I've actually worked with her a few times and really respect her. (I used to work for Radio Disney, hence the meeting her more than once).

And I love that top! Who cares whose name is on it, it looks cute!

I've actually been eying some of the Miley tanks too. I haven't bought one yet but definitely don't think less of you for it ;-)

Oh and I TOTALLY know what you mean about her slow songs. I never heard them until the past couple weeks of idol and I just don't think that's for her. Her voice is cool, but it is not "pretty."
