Swan Lake

Man, I can’t believe it’s December already, and 2013 is all but over. I haven’t accomplished much this year (and definitely failed miserably at my NY Resolutions) but I guess I feel that way because I haven’t done anything big, I just go on with my regular jobs. Speaking of which, I do have some pretty exciting news to share with you guys: I just got a writing job! I’m going to rewrite the first 10 episodes in a historical drama series about the Indochina War. I’m super excited, not just because it’s my first professional gig, but also because as far as modern Vietnamese history goes, it’s one of my favorite eras.

Anyway, this outfit is for this week’s SIA, inspired by Chris van Allsburg’s illustration for Swan Lake. It’s pretty self-explanatory, so I’m just going to direct you guys to Jess’ blog so you can see how others interpreted this painting.

  1. Congratulations on getting a writing job! That is SO cool! And awesome that you get to work on a project centered around one of your favorite times of history. It’s always great when you get to work doing what you love!
    I really like that sweater; it looks SO warm. I can’t believe it’s December, either. My brain sort of went into GAH mode once I realized I’m going to have a baby NEXT MONTH. WHAT?
