Sometimes all I want is to live in the 70’s so I can wear glittery jumpsuits, go roller skating on the reg, and spend my nights at the disco. Lucky for me there’s something about this galaxy print peplum top that makes me feel just a bit closer to the decade (the thick polyester blend fabric certainly helps). Oddly enough, it has turned out to be a very versatile piece in my wardrobe. I’ve worn it with boyfriend jeans and pointy flats, in Vegas with my Margiela for H&M crystal fringe collar and candy clutch, and on several dinners out – both dressy and casual. Versatile or not, any piece of clothing that mentally transports me to a place and time that inspires me is a must have in my book.
What a week! Coming off of a fantastic birthday (many thanks to you for your lovely birthday wishes!), I feel like the luckiest girl around and thought it would be fun to share a sprinkling of moments from the past few days. Needless to say it’s hard to jump back into the routine after a whirlwind of delicious treats, endless bubbly, sequins for days, the girliest of chatter, and of course – prezzies. Included in the the mash-up are: classic afternoon tea by my wonderful mom, glittery birthday nail art by my dear girl Jaimi, the most glorious birthday gift ever – an Alexander Wang Rocco bag, a fun futuristic peplum number from Asos, an amazing wall o’ horns at STK, my new favorite colored jeans (which I raved about here), Sex and the City penny slots (hello!), and the chandelier that swallowed a whole bar at the Cosmopolitan. I’ll have twinkling lights in my eyes for the rest of the month and I love it.
The cat’s out of the bag. If you’ve seen any of my recent posts (take this or this por ejemplo), it’s clear that I have a thing for animal likeness fashion. Whether it’s a ram horn, a python print, or a stegosaurus spike, I love to add little animal aspect to my outfit whenever possible. Leopard print is an absolutely crucial staple in my wardrobe, almost as if it’s a solid neutral, so isn’t it a gas to push it a step further into full-on animal costumery? These pieces are a fun touch of sass and kitsch without teetering into childish. Perfect for a weekend of unadulterated mischief. See you next week!
Is it just me or does this year already have a new kind of energy? There’s a certain fire in the air – a feeling of anticipation for big things to happen. 2012 is the year of the dragon and boy am I liking it already. The dragon is the only animal in Chinese zodiac years that is not a real species – something that can inspire us to think beyond our basic reality. What better than a fierce fire breathing reptile to give us power and passion to conquer the impossible this year?
