Pale Blue Fluted Skirt and Aqua Cardi

Loft Pale Blue Skirt and Aqua J. Crew Cardi
Hi Ladies,
While I'm working on this post, I'm sitting on my bed watching "Siberian Tiger Quest" by Nature (on Netflix). It's about a Korean man who left his wife and kids and went to live in a pit in Sibera to study tigers. (Yes, it was of his own volition. No, he was not being paid to do this. Yes, this is the same Siberia that felled Napoleon's army.) He said it was minus 30 degrees outside and inside, and all he bought to eat were 300 bags of cooked rice, nuts and a container of salt. He stayed in the pit for 3 months before he saw any tigers and then stayed another 4 months video taping them. One night, a family who's matriarch he'd named "Bloody Mary" (pause),  jumped on the roof of his pit and broke through trying to get at him. Then suddenly they left...

While I admire the man's fearlessness and determination, and realize that this awesome documentary couldn't have been made w/o his sacrifice...I can't help but wonder if he's crazy. I also can't help but feel for his poor wife, who I'm sure was simultaneously wondering if she'll ever see him again and mentally kicking him for not bringing any vegetables.

It's true that this story has nothing to doing with fashion, beauty or being petite, but I thought it was interesting. So, if you are looking for a tie-in, here it is: "Be bold!". (But not too bold...Siberia is really cold and he could've wound up as an appetizer for Bloody Mary and her 3 cubs.)

  2. OK, the Siberian tiger guy is just crazy! I lack the adventure gene that makes people want to do stuff like that. I would, however, wear something somewhat bold. :) This color palette looks incredible on you!

  4. Beautiful colors in your outfit, the necklace is fabulous. Sounds like and interesting documentary. Fascinating, but you do kinda have to wonder if there were not a couple screws- loose in that man's head.

  10. The wife was probably so annoyed with him that I bet she wished the Tiger would just go ahead and eat him so she could get on with her life. At least that's what I'd be thinking if I were her!
    You did the Nancy Drew hair again! Love this look on you! The pale blue is so pretty!

    1. Thank you! Yeah, she probably wished the tiger would finish him off so she could find someone who was "around the house" a bit more :)

  11. I love the fluted skirt - a fun mix between a pencil and an a-line. The pastels are working for you too!

    1. Yeah, it would be totally annoying when they try to eat you :) and then all those bags of rice...I'm a carbolic, but I don't even think I could do that :)
