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, 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.
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.

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
– Be Bop Deluxe, “Blue As A Jewel”
