I don't mind being a caricature. In fact, I rather enjoy it. It is a kind of shorthand and a litmus test for people who might be on the same wavelength as I am. I'm not interested in pleasing everyone, and the caricature Jeanne definitely pleases me.
That being said, when I have to meet a room full of new people I don't usually start with my Jeanne caricature. This evening Stephen and I are going to check out a meeting for a club we might like to join. I wanted to wear something that is true to my aesthetic without straying too far into silly.

I'm still happy with my leopard finger nails. Today is the 11th day of this manicure, and it is still looking pretty good. You can see where they are growing out at the top, but the ends are barely starting to chip. I will likely redo them tonight or tomorrow, but I am very satisfied with the experience overall.

Don't forget, tomorrow is Everybody, Everywear: Color Blocking. I'm even more excited since I missed last month's Neon Challenge. I know what I'm wearing, and I can't wait to see what other creative bloggers think up.
