I decided No Anthro Zone Reviews would take priority over posting Wednesday's OOTD on Thursday. Why didn't I post yesterday? Why am I behind on Commenting Rounds?

Before I go all out Anthro, meet Modcloth's Pier to Pier Jacket by Tulle. Fast becoming a favorite of mine. My scarf was handknit by my multi-talented Mother.

I woke up Thursday Morning with an eye infection. After several commentsfrom Co-workers about PINK EYE (which I didn't have) I felt like I should go home. Better safe than sorry. So I went to the Dr's office later in the day. She prescribed antibiotic eye drops.

Since I was already at the Dr's office, I asked her why I couldn't bend my thumb on my left hand without having severe pain. It turns out the tendons are hyper extended. For the last 6 months I have had to learn to mouse with my left hand. Advanced Carpel Tunnel, Tennis Elbow, and issues with pinched nerves in my Right shoulder have been plaguing me for several years.

I had to include my new Shiny Leather Caraway Bag in Mauve by Orla Kiely. I'm wearing a necklace with purple stones to add balance over this very large, brightly colored luggage bag.
I took baby steps and mixed two patterns by including the Roadway Tights by Eloise.
The first time I saw the Wightwick Manor Dress with Anthro's Loose Rein Boots by Miss Albright was on LC of Bella Seattle HERE. I had the boots, but I had never paid attention to the dress. That's the Anthro Domino Effect. I now needed the dress, which was Sold Out. LC kindly shared her Wish Listed dress with me.
The Dr. gave me a splint for my TRIGGER THUMB and explained that the symptoms were only going to get worse unless I had minor surgery to cut the tendons and loosen the joint. Ack!

She was right about the progression. I accidental bumped my thumb into a bent position this morning. Always a very painful experience. Normally I can gently bump my thumb back straight. But not this time. It stuck! I rolled around on my bed for 20 minutes in extreme agony. It wasn't until an hour later that my thumb popped out of the bent position.
