Outfit for a Tuesday: Fierce Tiger
My rant on potential remedies to the suburban blues was in jest, a rather pathetic attempt at satire during a slow week, though, my penchant for what I associate with suburban style is mostly earnest. What started as a not completely ironic activity and aesthetic is now not exactly dominant in my wardrobe, but definitely gaining traction. This sort of silky, flowing tiger patterned tunic blouse from Michael Kors is the latest addition and a prime example. Within this billowy and comforting fabric, casually elegant, I can definitely envision myself at a local Whole Foods Market, fingering the avocados for ripeness. Yesterday, I paired it with thick cream slacks and, for some decadent suburban living overkill, black leather and silver medallion Michael Kors sandals. In different times, it would have been the ideal outfit to hit the town and attempt to pick up a dentist.
Since I am not quite prepared to throw in the towel and do want a sort of semblance of keeping it real, I wore my one of my favorite lucite bangles, entombing a crumpled piece of aluminum foil, and a bodacious hammered silver cuff. For an extra glint of sparkle, for even more light refraction, my chandelier lucite necklace.
