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?

This sequin blazer was a serendipitous find while I was doing a pull at Shareen Vintage for a shoot last year. I swiftly swiped it off the rack and held it my tight grasp until I had secured it for my very own. When I wear it, I feel like the ringmaster in the most fabulously costumed three ring circus... so what better to pair with it than an arm full of tiger/leopard/snake cuffs and a necessary touch of checker print fit for only the chicest of circus clowns?
