First and foremost, I must apologise for my blog absence over the past week. As well as the weighty storm of high heart-rated exams, life has thrown me a good number of curveballs that have employed a great deal of self-control, green tea, re-evaluation, and subsequent perspective.
And, when life throws you curveballs, you also angst about in your favourite jeans, tee and diamonds. Am I right?
In reality, I won’t be flaunting any diamonds, or even best friends, until I’m at least thirty-five. One of those fabulous career women with a sharp black suit, a megawatt smile, a god damn sizeable rock on the left hand, and golden finery on the right. Angelina Jolie, what?
Who am I kidding – at thirty-five, I’ll still be rolling around in boyfriend jeans. And my ________ will still hate them. How’s that for a double reality check?
The method to this madness, though, is to show a) how tired I am, b) that I haven’t washed my hair today, c) that Goldsign does a mean man jean, and most importantly, d) that you can start your outfit with your blinged out Swarovski, should that be your crack-of-dawn inclination, and dress it down to the absolute and bare minimum. In this case, white cotton (tee and sheets) proves a pinpoint contextual ball game for silver-backed sparkles (though I would suggest grey or black for anything with gold on it).
And just like that, Bob’s your ______.
As promised, I also wanted to announce the winner of my Luisa Via Roma birthday giveaway – congratulations to Eileen for her entry! LVR will be in touch soon for you to enjoy your sweet as hell shopping spree!
And now, back to my final push for my Intellectual Property Law exam tomorrow.
Then I’m free to scramble before my Saturday flight to dreamy Paris with my dreamy man.
