Tress was inspired by the circus colors of red, black and white. Interestingly enough, just last night I watched the episode of Project Runway where the challenge was circus inspiration. It was a coincidence of fashionistic proportions.

I have learned from Chelsea that you should not be afraid to use an office product in order to enhance your "game photo". This is me pretending to be the ringmaster with a whip from the novel. But I am smiling because I could not figure out how to pose (if I am that ringmaster, then my secret is that I am a dork). And yes, that is an extension cord or a printer cable or something. But I would really like to think I am bringing sexy back, ringmaster style like Marlene.

"I think Circus, I think scary clowns. Then I think ringmaster. When I think Ringmaster, I think shorty-pants and boots and elaborately embroidered shoulders. Best I can do with one hand. Hoorah the circus!! Top is anthropologie and the pants and boots are, well, the same as pirate day. I told you I always look like a pirate!"
"It is supposed to be 100 degrees today in Burbank, which eliminated my aspiration of ringmaster. So, I went with trapeze artist instead. Sparkly top from H&M with a bit of extra neck sparkle courtesy of Stella & Dot. Skirt (cover up stand-in) from Target, and shoes Corso Como. I made my best attempt at a ta-da! pose too!"
