apologies and bad news

So firstly, I'm sorry I haven't posted for so long! But with the bad news comes my explanation: yesterday, when sledding with a few friends, I jammed my ankle on a brick of a storm drain. It hurt like crazy so I had to be carried back to my dorm, where I called the student-run ambulance service (free thankfully), to take me to the hospital. After many hours and x-rays and cat scans later, the doctors told me that I fractured my heel bone in several places and may need surgery. I have to go back in for an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon in a few days, but for now they put me in a huge boot-cast-thing, and gave me some crutches and a prescription for vicodin. Soooo, I am out of commission on the whole showcasing outfit thing for a while. I have some photos from the day of, before the fateful sledding outing, but other than that I am without outfits! And since the only thing I own that can fit over my boot are soffe shorts (and the new pair of really large sweatpants I am hopefully going to send someone out on an errand to the bookstore to buy for me), there will nothing cute coming from me for awhile!

But the good news is, per advice from my roommate, I want to use this time without outfits of my own to explore different types of posts on this blog! Perhaps I will do designer profiles, or critiques of store collections, try my hand at polyvore collages, or do posts on my stylish friends (at Georgetown and from home). I think it will be an interesting way to play around with the blog for a while. Who knows?

But for now here is my picture-less apology/explanation post, hope you are having a great weekend!
