Back to the Basics
Can I just say how I am heartbroken and in shock about Prince’s untimely passing? As a teenager of the 80’s, his music was some of my absolute favorite. I still have my original cassettes and CD’s from back in the day and enjoyed belting along with him at the top of my lungs. I was fortunate enough to see him in concert three years ago and felt it was worth paying extra to be up close and personal. Beyond the music, my most favorite moment of the night was when he was talking to the crowd. He spoke about growing older and pointed into the packed audience and said, “We are all getting older. Look at you; you are getting older. You are getting older. You are getting older.” Then he stepped back and said, “All of you are getting older, but Not me, I look just like I did 20 years ago!”, and we all laughed and loved it, because it was true. He still looked, danced, and sang just as he did when Purple Rain, Raspberry Beret, Kiss, and 1999 first came on our radar. It was a fabulous night. From his brilliant lyrics, unique style choices, and pointed wit, he was a true icon who will be missed.
On to the fashion now… This was a look I wore last weekend. I’ve never really worn white jeans and a white tee together, so this was something new for me. I am just really weird about colors being perfectly matched, and it is something I am gradually letting go of. I did like how the all white look was very refreshing, springlike, and offered a perfect base for Whatever I wanted to add (Warning: this means you will be seeing more of this white base in the future!). I went with a double denim look this time around by adding my blue denim jacket. From there I added a polka dot scarf in my hair, strappy black sandals and plenty of sparkles to elevate the look just a bit. I wanted to go for a slightly retro Hollywood starlet vibe, while still keeping it current.
