YO YO YO! The babies are all breathing. No one is projectile vomiting bile, pooping blood, or turning blue. Soooo… that clearly means I can write a blog post from the NICU computer?
DISCLAIMER: This is not a fashion blog. I REPEAT: This is not a fashion blog.
That said, let’s begin. I don’t ever write posts about fashion. HOWEVER, because one of the blogs I regularly follow, Pretty Shiny Sparkly (a-super-girly-blog-that-represents-everything-that-I-am-not-but-that-I-can’t-stop-reading-because-the-writer-went-to-my-med-school-and-her-fiance-hooked-me-on-it-by-mentioning-it-one-day-during-our-neurology-rotation), is hosting a new Bloggers Do It Better challege about SEQUINS, and I happened to wear something pretty sequiny on New Years Day. With my scrubs. To the NICU. BECAUSE IT WAS NEW YEARS! So I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to participate.
I think these challenges go something like this: Kristina, the author of PSS, posts a fashion challenge for her readers. Then, the readers come up with a sweet outfit, take pics, and post them on their respective blogs. They showcase each piece they’re wearing, talk about where they bought it, who the designer is, etc., etc., etc. Then Kristina compiles it all into one place so all the fashionistas can easily be—inspired—by one another. So, if I happen to finish putting this together before the deadline (my line of work is quite unpredictable, and my blogging at the hospital is SURE to be interrupted multiple times), I just might end up participating in her latest challenge. Will I fit in with these girls? Maybe… if I just follow fashion blog protocol. I think I’m supposed to show you the various pieces I’m wearing, and talk about their brand names…
I’m also supposed to strike some America’s-Next-Top-Model-like poses for the camera, showing off my accessories and such. Again, it’s fashion blog protocol.
