Pumpkin Ale.

Hi All. How was your Tuesday? Mine was busy, work-loaded, boring, uneventful. I left work half an hour later than I was supposed to and had to wait 20 minutes for the bus to leave and then another 15 minutes for the other bus I take. Ahhh the joys of public transportation in a big city!! And this big city was crazier (in a good way) than ever, today/tonight. The capital of Albania (Tirana) where I live is preparing for the biggest day in the History, tomorrow. See tomorrow on November 28th we celebrate 100 years of Independence. You can imagine the festive atmosphere and all the events going on here, due to this. The entire center of the down-town is covered with our beautiful flags as well as lots of Black & Red - our country's colors. And about 50 of the biggest pastry chefs of Albania are currently working to finish up the big, 2 ton-weight cake that will be displayed tomorrow at a special sculpture display, in front of our National Museum and they will cut it and whoever passes by there (I mean any random by-passer, any pedestrian) can have a piece. I cannot wait to see how the cake will look like and of course I will take photos of it. I am sure it will taste good, too. Ohh and I will be rocking some Red & Black tomorrow, for sure. ;-)

Anyway, after all this history for you, I am moving on to today's outfit that I call Pumpkin Ale where I wore this Lovely, Bright Orange Dress with some Black & some Brown. I love the results. And this outfit does remind me a lot of Fall and a lot of Pumpkin Ale - which is a great beer and a beer I love (though I am not much of a beer drinker). I love the crystal Statement Necklace I paired with this outfit too and even my bold Magenta-Red Lips. The only light color mixed here is that Light Beige/Ivory belt I got on clearance sometime this Spring but had never worn yet. Look here how I wore this dress, differently, earlier this year in the Spring, when I wasn't pregnant. =) Which of the two looks you like best?
