A Gamine grows weary of Gamine…

Gamine – Day 27


It seems like I’ve come to that point in every month where I’ve run completely out of things to say about the particular style I’m trying out.  I’ve worn Gamine now for twenty-seven days.  I’ve tried to describe Gamine as best as I possibly can and I’ve certainly had my fair share of Gamine experiences.  So what is there left to say?  In Posh Spice’s book about style, she writes a whole chapter on jeans.  I don’t know how anyone could find that much to say on the topic of jeans (Let’s talk button-fly! The dark days of stone-washed!  What does boot-cut say about you?), but Posh obviously had reams of information she needed to get out, which is probably why she’s writing style books and not sitting around the Algonquin Round table.

So in the absence of quality fashion talk today, the only think I can offer is a stray dog update.


We’ve decided to name her Lucy (Buck successfully wore his siblings down in the naming department) and she’s really coming out of her shell.  Lucy is still growling at our kids, but I’m confident that with some positive child/dog reinforcement she will see children for what they really are – small people you can easily steal food from.

There’s only one thing with Lucy that might be an issue for the goats –




…she’s part….


…herding dog…

That’s all from farm Gamine today.  Check back tomorrow for weather Gamine or crafty Gamine or plumber Gamine… Oh, the possibilities!

    I like this outfit a lot.

    I’m hoping for the day you try out Bombshell Style. Oh man, you might be the only one in your entire Pacific Northwest area. Can you imagine the other mothers on the school run giving you the stink eye or the kids on the school bus goggling at you. :D Of course, Green Acres used to be a favorite show of mine and you’ve already got Arnold the pig!

    • My Year of Fabulous says:

      You know, I’m terrified of Bombshell style but I just might have to do it. I really, really, really don’t have the body type for that style so it would be a whole month of frustration for me. I’m still thinking about it though! I do already have the pig, you’re right!

    Love that outfit! I could never wear white pants…

    Poor goats… Lucy is one lucky dog finding you guys. I know you are use to dogs growling and snapping at your children…make sure to tell them for me not to put their faces next to a growling dog…Don does that all the time and walks away looking at the blood dripping from some wound on his body saying ‘that dog bit me’…with a look of bewilderment on his face..hello! a growling dog is a good dog warning before they separate your skin from you body…

    • My Year of Fabulous says:

      You know, the goats have started to chase Lucy as much as she chases them. I think they actually enjoy each other’s company. I saw Garfield chasing Lucy who was running full speed away with her tail between her legs. As soon as Garfield stopped, Lucy turned around and chased Garfield. And I won’t let Lucy bite the kids. They know not to put their faces close to her. Any suggestions as to how I can get Lucy to like the kids more? And where’s my birthday candy? These teeth aren’t going to rot themselves!

      • Bo says:

        I know you’d never let your kids get bit! but you know I am a freak about safety! I say if the kids totally ignore Lucy, she will come around eventually, when they are adults:)

        Oh you just wait……I have not forgotten….and you will be SO happy!!

    The picture with the wildly leaping goat cracks me up. So glad that your rescue dog is fitting into the family. After our beloved 10 year old dog (aka furry son) passed away in early July, we decided to adopt a dog from a shelter… he’s been with us 2 weeks now and is totally spoiled/fitting in/loved. =)

    Oh and I’m so over gamine and can’t wait for the next look!

    • My Year of Fabulous says:

      I just read about your oh so cute doggie that you adopted! That dog is sooooo cute! I’m so glad you adopted from a shelter. There are literally millions of wonderful dogs waiting for homes in shelters and families need to adopt them!

    You have three days left to wear a ponytail! You’re driving me crazy with these hats and loose hair. A ponytail or low bun would look cute and solve hat hair issues.

    • My Year of Fabulous says:

      Does it help that I’m wearing a pony tail as I write this? Probably not. I really screwed up in the hair department this look. I’m so bad with my hair. I just wash it and brush it and then can’t be bothered with anything else. I’m thinking I need a haircut for my next look.

    digging the clock belt. Lucy too. God speed.
