Athens, Georgia – There won’t be very much sourness or bewilderment from me on the year that was 2017. So sad if you did not enjoy it. But for me, I actually had a decent year for once. Deleting my Facebook account permanently at the start of 2017 helped me immensely.
With that said, it is New Years Eve and I am on my way out the door. I will be dipping in and out of my usual hangouts, ending the night at Go bar to ring in the new year and cut a rug.
Tonight’s outfit harkens back to the early 1970s, glam rock razzle-dazzle. I wanted to go with mixed textures alongside muted tones and insane metallic shine. The liquid silver long sleeved minidress, I purchased online. Although the material is thin, it surprisingly hangs just right [which for me is loose fitting]. The cut is simple which is why I fell in love with it. The black velvet tuxedo jacket is an Ann Taylor creation. It is another favorite piece in my wardrobe because it is a tailored classic. I purchased it secondhand for a little over fifteen dollars. The hefty 1940s vintage mink coat is sublime. It’s sad that it is falling apart. If I could get replicas made of it, I would in a heartbeat.
My hand-selected accessories are sharp and clean. The smoky grey pvc and metal wide choker is a ripoff of someone. Who that is? I don’t know [seeing everyone at this point in the history of creativity is copying someone living or dead. That’s just my take.] The rose gold metallic box handbag is just the most. Easy to hold, nice closure, just chunky enough for my jittery hands. Last but not least are a pair of black faux suede booties with silver embroidered stars. They are super comfortable. Absolute showstoppers for the feet.
Happy New Year to you and yours.
