Inspiration: Michael Jackson

So, I'm browsing through my RSS feeds and see a post from The Cut about the Michael Jackson wardrobe auction. Like most children of the '80's, I was a huge MJ fan and had the albums, posters, and accessories (I'm telling you, I would rock the f*&% out of that pendant necklace if I still had it) to prove it. I click the link to the auction catalogue just to check it out and

Casual Style: Sweat Me

Do you ever feel like it's easier to get dressed up than it is to go casual? Sometimes I have a hard time on the weekends because 70% of my wardrobe is work clothing. Sweatsuits are about as casual as it gets, and I have exactly two pair--they were Christmas gifts. I refuse to wear them outside of the house.

Current Obsession: Indian Bridal Jewelry

Fueled by a newfound desire for dramatic necklaces (I'm usually an earring gal) and a late-night viewing of Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love (it's not what you think), I am now obsessed with traditional Indian bridal jewelry. As a result, I've spent many hours Googling and ogling (is it a coincidence that those words are so similar?) Kundan jewelry, mangalsutra, tikka, jhoomar, and all sorts of beautiful things I want to drape myself in for no apparent
