“Chartreuse, the only liqueur so good they named a color after it” ~ Death Proof, a Quentin Tarantino flick.
I do believe I lit up my surroundings with this outfit. It’s all sorts of colourful, is it not? There’s an entire parade going on yet it seems to work (that’s what I’m going with, anyways). Eye-popping hues, effusive prints, stained glass effects, Bollywood cuff, oh and the hair. Let’s not forget about the hair.
Gah. I’m still squinting, damnit.
And then, there were those shoes. I fell in love with them the moment I laid eyes upon those cathedral stained glass heels with that Royal Blue Suede upper. In fact, my infatuation stretched across the purchase of two pairs, the second being with Black Suede. Yes, insert sheepish grin here, I tend to do that. Purchase things in multiples. Particularly when it comes to shoes. As though you didn’t already know that by now.
Purple Wolf Head Pendant fashioned from Clay. It’s from this amazing store called The Rogue & The Wolf which is in the midst of a superb sale so go forth 🙂 and that stunning Stag ring? It’s thrifted. Do you not also adore my Bollywood Cuff?? It’s the perfect mix of Turquoise with Gold. Sidenote: how is it that when I try the all pouty and sassy pose, I just end up looking somewhat cross-eyed and just, well, cross?
“Beast Mode” ~ To flip out; lose control; be overwhelmed with anger. Origin: Beast Wars- Optimus Primal would “go Beast-Mode” and change into a powerful and forceful animal. Can you tell that this is one of my favourite gym shirts?
Concocted by French Carthusian Monks since the 1740s, Chartreuse is composed of distilled alcohol and a potent mix of 130 herbal extracts.
Hey, posing is tiring.
Incidentally, Chartreuse is also one of the handful of liquors which continues to age and improve in the bottle. Read: there is hope for me.
