Good morning, Tuesday. Had a lovely weekend and a brilliant day off yesterday. Hope you are all getting back in the swing of things too.
So this weekend one of my best friends got married to his partner and it was ah-mazing. It was my first same sex wedding and it was so much fun. I'm not sure you can top the feeling of a roomful of gay men telling you you had the best dress of the night. I was positively thrilled, particularly in a roomful of major looks, honey. I went big with a sequined animal print number, and although I was scared to bring it that hard, bring it I did. And I don't regret it.
The point of the above is not to gloat. It's to acknowledge I can do over the top, and that maybe that's my best setting. I do keep it fairly simple on most days, but I'm attracted to a bit of over the top. I can't help it. Plus I'm so bloody pissed off due to (ahem) recent events in our country that I almost can't bear it. I'm craving making a very major middle finger statement right about now.That's why a recent Instagram prod to check out some new Vivienne Westwood shoes gave me a feeling. She is my de facto muse of the moment.
I mean- these tiger inspired shoes. WTF in the best of ways? I need them. And they come in gold.
Plus there were a few other items my rebellious, Anglophilic, eccentric soul was lusting for.
Like this jumpsuit.
And this suit. That jacket. Those trousers. Gah to the nth power.
And this fabulous coat.
And this electric blue dress. And these leopard pants.
And these JEANS. They are next bloody level.
This could all mean I'm either:
a) Turning into Eddy from "Ab Fab" as I always knew I would.
b) Channeling the Dadaish insanity of our times.
c) Embracing my inner punk rock weirdo.
d) All of the above.
I think it's d for sure. And true- crazy clothes come at a crazy price. But a girl can dream of living an eccentric life with a wardrobe to match, non? Either go big or go home, I say. Cause that's what's up this sweetie darling of a Tuesday in the 212. Yours, in a bit of outrageous whilst feeling outraged. XO
