I was wearing a Nine Inch Nails t-shirt this morning, but my husband said, "that's not very Christmassy!" and I said, "you're right." So I swapped tees, and he shook his head, and off to work we went. Also featuring one of my 7,000 military-chic jackets and giant rings.

Today was our final festive shinding. I'd like to say that I dressed up for it, but this velvet skirt + lace blouse combo is a regular staple of my wardrobe. I did jazz up my hair with a starburst ornament and spent most the day ghostwriting as my alter-ego: Our Lady of Perpetual Ennui.

This dress has pockets. POCKETS! Pockets are the best. (Ignore the logos on my lanyard, that's not where I work. It was my dad's, who gave it to me when he retired.)

I work from home on Mondays, but I was having remote access problems so I vetured forth to the office. In doing so, I probably created a rift in the space-time continuum. If the Titanic crashes into my cubicle now that I'm home, please know that I'm sorry. I'm so, so sorry.

Outdoor and indoor looks.


  • Hat: I can't recall the artisan's name, but I acquired it while vending at Ottawa Comiccon 2015, where I traded deer mandibles for it with her fella who was cosplaying as Care Bears villain No Heart. If this rings a bell for anyone, please let me know!

What do you wear under a Doctor Who knit sweater when you can't wear knits for more than an hour without boiling alive? A TARDIS t-shirt, of course. Accessorized with Tiny Ten, who always lives on my building pass. It's all very meta.
