They Might Be Giants

My sister's graduation is this weekend, so I have my outfit all planned out.




Dress from Banana Republic and purse from Kohl's (purchased on sale this weekend for either $12 or $18, I forget). In the first picture, my shoes are from Target (purchased on sale this weekend for $16), and in the second picture, my shoes are from Steve Madden (purchased on sale in January). Dorky facial expressions not for sale.

I am going to go with the gold Target sandals because I think the brown shoes will give me blisters if I wear them for long walking excursions without pantyhose.

I think I look super short in these pictures, which is good. I need to get used to it because I am shorter than everyone in my family, so our family pictures at graduation will look something like this (photos from my sister's white coat ceremony last year):





The yellow faces are kind of freaking me out. The two tall guys are my cousin and uncle, and the short guy is my dad. The gal with the white coat is obviously my sister, and the other woman is my mom. H will be in the pictures this year (he didn't attend the white coat ceremony), and he is even taller than my uncle. Also, my other cousin may show up, and she is at least six feet tall too. My sister and I are the only cousins (1) under 5'10" and (2) with brown hair. All the other cousins are svelte, blonde, Nordic giants. I feel like Laurel would fit right in. Uff da!

TMBG is my favorite band. And yellow faces are very scary. I do love the blue dress. Way to go, Target!

You are so cute! In my Mom's side of the family my sister is the giant at 5'8'' and I'm on the tall/average side at 5'3''. You can come visit us in Brooklyn and feel tall.

Also, the outfits ARE SO CUTE! And I would go with the gold sandals as well.

I still love that dress. For various body-type reasons (mainly involving my chest), I don't think I could pull that off. On you, though, it's adorable. Have fun at the graduation!

Claire, the white coat ceremony is where the students are given their white lab coats after their 3rd year of vet school, when they have finished all their classes and have one year of working in the vet clinic before they can graduate. The school where I went to law school had white coat ceremonies for dental and med students too.

Welcome to fashionblogging!!!

Also, although I come from a family of svelte, Nordic giants, I am MYSTERIOUSLY 5'4". I may tower above you, but I am the runt of my litter.

Cute dress!

I think what makes you look so short in that picture (and you do look like just a wee thing) is that the railing behind you kind of looks like a chair rail, and if it were at the usual chair rail height, that would make you about 3' tall. Hee.
