Minimal Splash

minimal splash

What an exciting week it's been for me, and not necessarily in the good way. Allow me a metaphor. Can you relate to a time when everything surrounding your life was precariously perched, threatening to topple over and disrupt what might be a relatively placid lake? It's those days when you pray that whatever happens, it happens with minimal splash.

Anyway, excuse my enigmatic philosophies. For this set, I pulled together some simple pieces (gray tee and black pants) and jazzed them up with a few statement accessories. Hello spotted-cow clutch, ciao leather dress shoes, top of the morning black chapeau. It's those delightful details that can make or break an outfit, don't you think?

Finally, I want to share a track I just discovered via my Flume Pandora station :) It's borderline bizarre, but I can see it as the soundtrack for some super cool, ultra hip fashion commercial showing flashes and glimpses of glamorous people doing glamorous things in glamorous places. You know what I'm talking about. It would basically scream, "I'm too cool for you, and I know it, and it's great." And as an afterthought, "Sorry I'm not sorry." And isn't that always the case with la vie à la mode? The aspirational wonders of it all, so great, addictive, and quite unconcerned with regular life. Whether that's good or bad I can't yet decide.

Yours truly,

P.S. As you can tell, I was in such a random writing mood today..
