you spin my head right round right round

Remember when you were a little girl and the excitement you got when wearing a dress because that meant spinning round and round in hopes of creating the elusive “cupcake swirl” with the bottom part of your dress? Well i just relived that experience with the help of this exaggerated peplum and man oh man, i can assure you it’s just as fun now as it was back then. People better watch out because i’m going to be spinning down the streets like a human tornado in the hopes of achieving that perfect “cupcake swirl” on a daily basis as of now.

Clearly I can’t wait to flaunt this baby on the d floor and bust a move. It was made to be spun in!

Word to the wise: Be cautious when behaving like a human tornado your “lady bits” can become easily exposed.

breaking bad habits

I do this way to often, i buy something relatively expensive, label it as a “going out shirt” wear it once, then never wear it again. This i find so silly of me, so today when i woke up and decided to get dressed for work i thought HELL NO am i leaving you in the closet! I’m going to wear YOU! And let me tell you, my job is far from fancy (i sit in the corner of television studio and roll the teleprompter) far from glamourous! I suggest from now on we all wear our fanciest of fancy clothes when out and about doing the most regular of things. It’s rather liberating.

the ultimate clothes friends

In this edition of clothes friends: We have none other then Alexa Chung and Poppy Delevingne, now these two are the real deal when it comes to being clothes friends. They’re so freaking stylish, hence their “IT” girl status and long time BFF’s to boot. And they just happen to be on the coolest road trip ever. Don’t you just wish you could ride shotgun and sing along to the radio with these two? I DO, I DO!

flock to the Birkenstocks

comfort is key when it comes to me and getting dressed, it’s probably my number one criteria when it comes to purchasing something. Hence why i love flowy articles of clothing ( * noted in my shirt captured below). Which is why when i heard the somewhat ugly sandal from germany aka the Birkenstock was being called the “IT” shoe of the summer, i couldn’t contain my excitement nor my debit card, I had to have them immediately.

Some words of wisdom aka words of Rachel:  when something comfortable  is being classified as “cool” in the fashion world, you don’t  ever, ever think twice about buying it,EVER, i don’t care what it is!

get it, got it, good …because as we all know, for the majority when people hear the word OVERALL they imagine an old man dawning the jean creation on a farm in the company of cows and baby horses. Well let me tell all a ya’ll that ain’t the truth. The dungaree can be worn on the busiest of city streets to the most hip and happening of gatherings. Just look to Alexa Chung or the Man Repellers Insta feed, the proof is in the pudding!!

Did I mention they’re also prime for jumping in? Which is clearly one of my fave past times as demonstrated by my last few posts!
