I did something today that I have never done before. How many of you have had an appointment with the telephone, tv, or internet provider? Then you can feel my pain. Last Friday the internet provider we have decided to do a software update and it knocked out the internet in the whole county. The internet didn’t come back online until about 1:00 pm on Saturday. However, mine didn’t come back online at all and after talking to their support they determined that I needed a new router.We bought a new router, which didn’t work either. Then, we took that one back because they told me it wasn’t compatible and we bought another one. You have probably guessed that it didn’t work either. Finally, they scheduled a technician to come to the house on Thursday between the hours of 12:00 and 2:00. First off, don’t they know that some people actually work for a living? I was on the phone to Texas about a computer issue at work when I noticed it was 12:00 so I quickly told them I had to go. I got to the turnoff to my house and the technician was pulling out. I followed him and then got right beside him and blew the horn. I motioned for him to pull over and he nodded so I pulled off, but he kept going. Lol! He didn’t know that a blogger was not going to let it go that easily. I turned around and started back in pursuit but he had a big lead on my now. It took me about a mile to catch back up with him and I went through the motions again. This time he understood and pulled off. I asked him why he didn’t turn around the first time and he said he thought I was just waving at him, that people do that all the time. WHAT!!! No buddy, I wasn’t being friendly, I just want my stinking internet fixed. BTW, it still isn’t fixed and they can’t give me a timeframe for when it will be back working. But, chasing down a stranger and pulling them over was a first for me. Lol!!!I’ll tell you about the dress later in the post but now I am going to talk about my jewelry. My crimson earrings would have been great for watching the Alabama football game the other night and even more perfect for the upcoming championship game on Monday night. Unfortunately, you don’t have time to get them delivered in time for the ballgame. I thought my Ennis bracelet was PERFECT for this dress. The colors in the dress and the bracelet are almost identical! The bracelet is a hinged cuff bracelet so it is very easy to get on and off. The necklace that I have on was a special that was available during Christmas. Be sure to always check the specials tab because they add things to it all the time. I was thrilled to see that some of you took advantage of my special that I am running this month. Purchase 75.00 from Plunder jewelry (excluding shipping and tax) and I will send you an extra piece of jewelry. Go to plunderdesign.com/taniastephens to place an order and be sure to pick a party with my name on it.I wasn’t about to show my pasty white legs to everyone. Plus, dang it has been cold here lately so I bought me a pair of navy tights to wear with my dresses. Tights might not add a lot of heat but they are better than nothing. Lol! I decided to wear my merlot colored suede ankle booties. These boots have become one of my favorites this fall. I had them last year but I never wore them but this year I just keep wearing them. Maybe that is why I hold on to my clothing so much, I never know when my tastes are going to change.
This dress is very unusual. It is soooo thick that you could wear this in the coldest climates. The neckline is actually a scarf/muff that can be slid off and then you are left with a round neckline. I was cold so I added the scarf. The high-low style is super cute but you are also left with the underside that shows. You would think that designers would put a lining in the dresses to keep this from happening. I truly love the colors of the dress, it is perfect for fall. This was a dress from Eva Trends and I wore this back in October of 2016. I loved all the comments on yesterday’s post that you made to your 12-year old self. I think a lot of them probably are still great for our 40, 50, 60, or 70-year-old selves. If you haven’t seen that post, then you need to check it out.
