Knowledge Is Golden

As smart as we are, we all have blind spots. And we don't know what we don't know.

I, for example, am constantly surprised at discoveries I make in clothing stores. Browsing racks of female clothes, I see possibilities I never imagined before. For instance, I never thought I'd be attracted to pants with tiny metal studs but here we are...

In addition to the new pants ($5 at a thrift-store), I love these Jessica Simpson platform pumps. They're glamorous and make me taller than ever.

What do you think?

  2. Tres disco, hon! I love the studded trousers and those platforms are divine! I am liking the glittery cardi and the grounding influence of the white shirt - you could totally wear this out for drinks with the girls!

  3. The shoes!!! Oh that I could wear some with heels like that.

    The pants just look like they are polka dot but if they are tiny metal studs that makes them seriously badass.

    I like how you've combined all the glitter and shine here.

  5. That's such great styling and it looks gorgeous on you. Love the pants and glittery cardie. But those shoes are the real stars here, they're divine, even though I wouldn't be able to walk in them! xxx

  6. Cute as cute, and all shiny. But all I can think is my thighs rubbing together and all the studs coming off! Hopefully you manage better. This looks so natural on you. Your inner goddess is glowing :-) xo Jazzy Jack

    1. Thank you, JJ. The studs are also useful if I ever have to protect myself from an angry dog. :-)

  7. I'm so boring and wear neutral everything but then every once in a while I'll scare myself and like something really bright or like last year - I started wearing dresses, at age 53, for the first time in my life.

    The outfit looks great! If I wore those shoes you would have to just prop me up in a corner. I can't walk on anything higher than a sneaker lol

  12. Ooh, your clothing choice are gorgeous! I really love those trousers and shoes as a combo and the cardie is beautiful! I could imagine a nice gold necklace with these too!

  13. Hella amazing. Those are the kind of shoes I like to try on and imagine the life that could let me take them home (my collection maxes out at 7 pairs now). I love shiny though. I have a "more walkable" holographic silver pair of dr. Marten oxfords.
