For Watching: Kurt Hummel (as played by the fabulous Chris Colfer) from Glee is currently my fashion hero. Yes I realize he is a boy, but whatever, so is Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl. Above are some inspirational looks he has managed to pull off perfectly. Also watch him totally work it in the Single Ladies musical number. Jonas Brothers have nothing on him!
Frankie Flats by B.P Nordstrom in Red (a Black Friday score at Nordstrom Rack for only $25)
Fernie Flat by BCBGirls in Black (found at Loehmann's).
For Volunteering: Project Gutenberg is a non profit organization to help put books on the public domain in the form of ebooks. It has been keeping me busy as I decided to rack up some virtual community service hours by doing proofreading (yes, I'm a literary dork). Lest you mock me now; it has been good fun seeing all sorts of scans of old books and interesting to learn about how the project goes thru the process. While I have joined the Distributed Proofreaders team, there is also Librivox, which helps put public domain books on audio.
