And yes, that is a shower cap on my head. I think I stole it form the Baobab Hotel in Gran Canaria. I am deep conditioning my hair.
And yes, you're right, it looks like I am leaning back on my heels. I have just painted my toenails.

Yes, that's right. The Highland Fashionista is getting ready. There is a dinner tonight. And I actually get to put on a pretty dress. And it is Saturday, and I am actually not working for a change, so the luxurious process of actually having enough time to put myself together properly has officially begun.
I should note here, that the Highland Fashionista does not need an entire day to get herself ready to go out. I am the kind of girl who can get ready in five minutes if I have to. I think it is a great asset to be able to look like the type of gal who needs a full day to get ready without actually being one of those gals. Because let's face it. Those gals are a pain in the ass.
No, we're talking strictly about the luxury of taking the time here, not the necessity of it. And lets be honest, Real Gals, who amongst us actually has the time or the inclination to spend all darn-tootin' day with cucumbers on our eyes reclining in the bath just to go out to dinner? The reality is, I have been doing laundry. Or more accurately, I have been locating and pairing socks that my husband washed earlier in the week but his man-genes prevented him from pairing or folding them. I cleaned the kitchen, and had a nice workout. Not with the conditioner on, I hasten to add. I think that might be dangerous. Now I have toenail polish on. and I have picked what I will wear tonight.

Hair either in a half-updo or loose bun, and minimal jewellery. I'm thinking a cocktail ring and studs, and that's it!
And one last thing. If you, like me, do find yourself with the luxury of having the time to get ready ahead of time, think about your exit strategy. Your fashion exit strategy, that is. Somebody may very well come to the door, or pop-round' as they do here in my small town. My plan is to rip the shower cap off my head, pull the hair back all slick, and make like I just finished my workout minutes ago. Not sure how I will explain the greasy, nutty smell emanating from my head, but with any luck, I won't have to.
