Waiting for That Ball to Drop

Tis' the end of 2011! The year that gave us Kim Kardashians wedding, then took it away from us. The year that finally ended one of the longest wars in U.S. history. The year that took great minds like Vaclav Havel. We have much to celebrte and look forward to in 2012. Namely, the apocalypse. And while I unfortunatley won't be celebrating it in NYC, I nonetheless made a small set inspired by the Big Apple itself. Dress by Camilla and Marc Cylinder.

Obsessed w/: Modern Clockwork

Ever since I saw Hugo (if you haven't seen it go, it is an absolutley beautiful film. I'm working on reading the book as well.), I have had a strage obsession with clocks and clockwork. Of course I have an undying love for old grandfather clocks and my clunky man watch I wear almost every day, but more artsy pieces have caught my eye as well. Function and beauty. I wonder though: how the hell can you actually tell time with this? Also, am I the only one who thinks this kind of looks like two legs going in circles? Maybe it's just me...awkward...Needless to say, this clock would look awesome hanging on any wall, whether in a modern or a more traditional setting (just to shake things up). Now that's function.

Lip Service

 I've recently developed a liking of lip color. (Getting in touch with my ancient Mesopotamian roots..or ya know, Elizabeth Arden...) Since I don't wear make-up, I allow myself to "experiment" with more color on my lips as opposed to, say, my eyelids. My favorite colors so far have been oranges and purples. Above is me au naturel (hells yes I'm bilingual!)...
 ...And then some.

Sparkle n' Shine

 2011 is coming to a close! I figure I might as well wear something shiny if the world comes to an end, or whatever. I found this sequined/beaded top at Goodwill a while back. I personally think it's frickin' awesome, so I wanted to wear it on a "normal day" without looking awkward and dressy.
