Red Bows and a Handbook for the Recently Deceased

Hellooo!! ❀️

Happy beginning of September, folks! I hope the year has treated you well and continues to do so. Here’s to a new month with new opportunities and perspectives. 😊

This cheetah print outfit I wore was my favorite ensemble from last week! The patterns were different – cheetah print with a subtle floral print skirt – but since the colors of each were similar, I felt it worked in harmony.

Add red bows, and there’s your unexpected pop of color. BOOM!

Definitely a favorite outfit I came up with. I love pops of red on an otherwise neutral colored outfit. Just really adds some pizzazz!

Saturday night, I did something totally different for me, and that was, meeting up with a few gals to go dancing at an 80’s Goth Night!

My favorite thing was observing the cool, 80’s-esque ensembles people had on. And wow, did everyone have some cool dance moves. Did I dance???? Surprisingly, yes, in the circle of gals I was with.

Can I dance? …No. And it shows. I’m naturally a very rigid person in posture, so much that I sometimes wonder if my soul is some old Victorian woman, so fluid dance moves just aren’t something I can offer. But cheers to trying something outside of my comfort zone!

In other news, here’s me entertaining myself by taking photos of my hand and eyeball in a rainbow glow produced by the sunlight coming in through the peep hole of my front door: 

Creepy eye, no? Probably the last thing you’d want to see in the dark. Me.

On a concluding note, here’s my new purse that also falls into the creepy category! If you’ve seen the film Beetlejuice, you’ll recognize it, but if not, let me explain! In the movie, Lydia Deetz comes upon a book that gives her a glimpse into the spirit world…

And behold!!! My new handbag, which looks like the book from the film. I love it so much! πŸ’™ A nice reminder for me that acknowledging death and all souls who have departed…makes me appreciate life even more so.

See you next time!!

Art Show & Outfit of the Day!

Last night was amaaaaaaaaaazing…

Like seriously. Amazing.

I went to a local art show downtown, where people showcased their work. It’s called Art Hop, it’s once a month, and essentially you walk around downtown from one studio to another and admire people’s work. I saw so many amazing artwork, and it made me feel fortunate to know there are so many talented people in the city I live in!

From the photo above: random shots Β in different studios, one in which was called Pop Art where you could literally pop all of the balloons and bubble wrap your heart desired! There were balloons on the walls, on the floor…and get this: they served pop tarts. My mind was blown from how creatively thought out it was!

Secondly, I bought a vintage handbag on Etsy. It’s super adorable and it’s from the 1960’s – and was only $25! This thing looks brand new and it’s hard to believe it made it through so many decades unscathed!

And now, for today’s outfit…

It went from beautiful and warm to cold and rainy in a matter of a day. Not so surprising considering April is upon us.

Umbrellas make for aesthetically pleasing backdrops though, don’t they?

With my new handbag, I literally feel like I could time travel back to the mid-century without a transition being needed…

That bedazzled unicorn was once a necklace, but I seldom wear necklaces, so I turned it into a ring. πŸ™‚

Happy Friday! ❀
