blank'/> A LITTLE BIT OF LACQUER: Sequin Skirt and Chambray

December 7, 2011

Sequin Skirt and Chambray

Yesterday I had a moment. You know, the moments you know will stick with you forever? The ones that, if kid friendly, you'll tell your grandchildren all about? Yeah, that kind of moment. And it wasn't kid friendly. Yesterday I did my first pelvic exam. And rectal exam. Meaning I had my finger(s) in a nice lady's orifice(s) I won't name. Yup.
Given the disturbing images this "moment" of mine may bring up in your mind,  I decided to share a very "happy" outfit. It doesn't get happier than gold sequins! This of course isn't what I was wearing for the exam, I sort of wish I was though. Perhaps I could have used the reflective properties of the skirt to shine more light on my area of interest.
In all seriousness, though, after yesterday I felt that much closer to being a real doctor. I couldn't have been more thankful to my patient and her willingness to let me perform the exams.

On a separate note, my gold sequin skirt isn't really a skirt. 
It's an "infinity scarf" I received free with some purchase last season from Charlotte Russe and didn't know what the hell to do with.  This is my perplexed face.
This is what I do with infinity scarves.

  30. Ha! Hysterical! Congrats on your road to doctorland :). Although it's pretty funny, upon first read I thought you said you'd *had* your first pelvic and rectal exam and I thought, "poor girl." Glad to hear you were the one doing the poking. Lol.

    Love the infinity-scarf-turned-skirt. It reminds me of an episode of Felicity!

    Happy New Year!
