I'm finally back in LA! Whew. Las Vegas was a ton of work, so much so that these photos are from before I left -- I just didn't have any time to post. Let me tell ya, I am not looking forward to jumping on a plane on Saturday for NY. I just want some R&R. The title of this post is a little Vegas homage. Las Vegas always makes me think of Tom Jones for some reason.
The highlight of my trip was meeting one of my coworkers from a satellite office in person. She and I talk on the phone frequently for business, but had not yet been face-to-face. Let me tell you, she is spectacular. She is in her mid-50s and it super petite, and she wears bohemian garb like beaded velvet burnout caftans. She told me that when she was my age, she bought blonde afro wigs and wore those, as well as turbans into which she would tuck all of her hair. We bonded over a mutual love for Bowie, Marc Bolan, Roxy Music, and the like.
It's always so nice to see someone who is a bit older than you and think, "That! That is what I want to look like when I am that age!" It's difficult being in that state of limbo where you are technically an adult but are still coping with lingering Peter Pan syndrome and don't ever want to really grow up, and it is refreshing to see someone mature and dress for their age without losing their personality.
Have you guys seen the Evil Twin jewelry line yet? You should know by now that I'm a sucker for a good bolo, as well as unnecessarily complicated things and super black-metal things. 'Ello gorgeous.
All of these are available at Market HQ, which is a super rad Australian web shop. I've been meaning to do a whole post on how great their styling is, actually, but that will have to wait for another time!
