Love & Prom
Friday, March 7, 2014
The word "love" is often applied to a wide variety a people, places or things and although the overuse of such a lovely word may strip away its true essence I can't help but love how love can be applied to so much -- after all it is a many splendored thing. I mean when it comes to l'amour I'm kinda a lush because I just have so many! But regardless of what type of love it is it still remains significant. I love my family, my bestie Nataly, a great pair of pumps (especially on sale), sipping tea in a pretty cup, watching Law & Order SVU marathons on rainy days, and the city of Paris -- for it's many reasons but quite simply because it's Paris, duh!
"Love" is the only word that I feel that can be use to describe all of those things properly. I just can't say "I like Justin Timberlake" because it doesn't truly illustrate how intense I adore his music, sense of humor, fashion, his smile and hair ... I digress -- the word "like" is nice and all but let's be honest "like" just doesn't cut it. Regardless of how you use the word "love" you use it to relay your profound adoration for anything that tickles your fancy. So go ahead and love what you love, deeply.
One thing that I love is to take pieces of clothing that are usually reserved for special occasions and make them more realistic for everyday wear. I can't get enough pastels, sequins, bows, and glitter so if I can incorporate any of those in my everyday dress well I'm #winning. This dress originally advertised for prom was too pretty to pass up because of the crotchet bodice and tulle skirt. I knew I had to have it based on those two facts alone. And since I'm not getting asked to prom any time soon (sad fact is that this June will be 10 years since my high school senior prom) a great way to take a dress like this and make it street wear ready is by simply adding a blazer or a moto leather jacket. It immediately makes your fanciful look easy and wearable. It also doesn't hurt to give off the attitude that you're completely comfortable in what you're wearing even if others don't think wearing tulle on a Tuesday morning is appropriate.
