// friday i’m in love #26 //

Friday I’m in Love is a weekly feature where I curate my top 3 looks I have seen online each week.  Though I will feature many plus size looks, I will also feature looks including straight sizes and gentlemen if the feeling strikes!

Look at how gorgeous this sheer maxi is!! Just LOOK!!

It’s not a surprise that I am a HUGE fan of black chiffon and I absolutely LOVE maxi’s as well!  What a perfect summer look!

I adore the long line cardi too, and who doesn’t love a classic, over sized, designer bag to make the perfect “yes, I’m effortlessly chic” statement?

Just gorgeous!

Oh my goodness, how fabulous does Dionne look in this absolutely gorgeous dress from the ASOS Salon line???  I have been wanting to write a piece on being a modern flapper girl with the Salon dresses as the key items!

She just looks beyond glamorous!  She got the look spot on and I’m super jealous that I don’t have this entire ensemble in my closet right meow!!

The jewelry she chose is perfect and the shoes are a lovely contrast to the dark dress, but still have just as much glitz and that purse is so much fun!

Just look how pretty & posh Ashley is looking in these photos.  I adore the sheer polka dot blouse, the breezy, pleated midi skirt and the perfect pops of red in her shoes, handbag, skinny belt & lippie!

She looks like a perfect lady, completely pulled together and totally on trend with the sheer elements!

Time Travel

Oh, How I wish the Doctor and his TARDIS would pop into my life sometimes!! Or to have a personal holodeck programmed with all the best parties in history & literature.

I am totally a golden age romantic.  I idolize many time periods and truly wish I could have a slice of that cake.

I dream of partying with Marie Antoinette all Rococo’d up, drinking champagne and nibbling macrons, or getting in deep with some very mystical and dangerous magic with Morgaine le Fey.  How about slugging back whiskey & beer, listening to jazz and bopping around Manhattan & Harlem in the 50’s as a beatnik, or I could be a Bohemian Queen in 1920’s Paris, hanging out with great painters and writers (seriously, Midnight in Paris is one of my dreams!!).  Let’s go get rowdy and low brow with some Vaudeville or some follies.  I could easily go for ripping it up with some original Riot Grrrls or play around with Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick at the factory or I could have afternoon tea & a session of making preserves with the likes of Anne of Green Gables.

It’s all so lovely, so romantic and so appealing.

Luckily, I am living in and making my own golden age.  Though it does not seem quite as glamorous and romantic all the time, you have to remind yourself that it was not always parties in those days either.  They definitely had their own share of monotony, hangovers, bills, work, being broke or just plain too tired to go out. While most of us are dealing with all of those things we have our share of amazing adventures, debauchery, intimate moments and entangling dramas (though, I do try to shy away from the drama).

 

Hemingway - the sun also rises

I still find myself wanting to return to those other times though and for that, I am determined to read more books from my favourite time periods.  After I finish reading Mists of Avalon I have decided that I’d like to be in the head space of the writers of Paris in the 20’s.  I will begin with The Sun Also Rises, it will be my very first Hemingway.  I also plan to read A Movable Feast.  I have read The Great Gatbsy by F.Scott Fitzgerald before but it was a long time ago.  The movie was so lovely and total eye candy, but I’d like to refresh myself with the book to remind myself of some of the finer points in the story.  I’ll also give This Side of Paradise a whirl.  And I figure, why not give Zelda Fitzgerald a chance, so Save me the Waltz is in my reading list as wellAnd I very much want to read The Autobiography of Alice B Tolkas by Gertrude Stein, she was so influential during that time period.

I want to be whisked away and inspired.  I’m quite certain that this will facilitate that.  I’m also quite sure it will inspire a few more parties I’d like to host!
