Like a record, baby
Right round, round, round
Who else loves disco? I love disco. Not necessarily the entire spectrum of disco music and disco style but certainly a bit here, a bit there. I love me some Boney M, Bee Gees, Donna Summer, and who could forget that kickass of an anthem from Gloria Gaynor, I Will Survive.
Appropriate much for a Monday post, yes?
WHAT DOESN'T KILL YOU CAN ONLY MAKE YOU STRONGER
Start-of-a-new-week-grind aside, I felt compelled to touch on the topic of disco not because this post focuses on that era but rather, because, to me, my shoes look like disco balls with heels.
Or, from another angle, they could easily pass as shards of glass which may actually come across as being far edgier than disco balls. Incidentally, this look is a perfect representation of how I put together an outfit, i.e., around my shoes. It’s something which happens very frequently with me, and, I do fancy, not that rare an occurrence for many of us. Come to think of it, the vast majority of my outfits revolve around a star accessory be it in the form of bag or trinkets or, as in this instance, shoes.
I know I’m not alone.
Many women do quite the same.
Specifically, I remember a good friend of mine. She’s Russian and we used to work together in Singapore. Day to day to day, her outfits would centre around her bag. That’s right. Her choice of bag dictated what she wore on any given day. As in she took it to the extreme. If her bag was tan, her entire outfit would be in that colour palette. If it was red … you get the picture. I remember once that her bag was this really bright shade of apple green #cringe
I still love you, Nat.
And then there was this other friend whose lifeline was jewellery, in particular, necklaces. She would create entire personas around the jewellery she chose to wear that moment. If it was pearls, out came the cardigan twinset and kitten pumps. If it was thick gold chains and bold rings, she’d be in something floral and loud, or in jogger pants complete with cap. I kid you not. I love this woman.
What an adventurous soul.
I’m curious, do you play along the same lines? Do accessories determine your #ootd? Or the other way around? Spill!!!
