locomotion

You gotta swing your hips now
That’s right, you’re doing fine
Come on, baby
Jump up, Jump Back
– “The Locomotion”, Litta Eva

This skirt is one of those garments that forces you to dance. No apologies for the blur in these photos, my darlings. Christmas party-palooza!

What I Wore – handmade bodycon dress with exaggerated shoulders (let’s be honest…it’s a bit tight…I typically try to avoid hoisted my chest up to my chin), polka-dotted tiered skirt, and black tights.

coquet coquette

Coquet coquette, you know I won’t forget
How you kissed me strange to prove you were mythical
– “Coquet, Coquette“, Of Montreal

If there were ever a band designed to make you throw on something lacy and swing your hips around the office, it would be Of Montreal. I can never sit still when I put their music on (and I suggest you follow suit!).

What I Wore: Black peplum mini dress with lacy sleeves from China, black caged heels from Siam Square, a multi-string necklace of vintage pearls, and “16 Rouge Roxane” from YSL Rouge Pur Couture.

London Fog

She’s a caged animal
London by night
Crashing lights and cymbals
Queens of twilight
Noisettes, “Sister Rosetta”

London was pretty much encapsulated by fog today. Feeling all Hogwarts on me.

Foggy black t-shirt – worn as dress – from Target, foggy wood/leather platforms from Buffalo London, foggy braided bracelets from Cara Collection (my current obsession).

“She grew up in an Indiana town
Had a good-lookin’ mama who never was around
But she grew up tall and she grew up right
With them Indiana boys on them Indiana nights”
Tom Petty, ‘Mary Jane’s Last Dance’

Earlier this week, I was feeling pretty patriotic. Such unexplainable mood swings often call for outfit changes – hence the flag-like colourblocking combination above.

Blue jumpsuit with heart-shaped pockets (worn unbuttoned and pinned in the back to mimic blue separates), red blazer, white platforms.

Blue Dress

There’s a picture that she paints without a brush
There are times when all her silver turns to dust
And she is blue as a jewel
Clear as ice kind and cruel
