EXCITING NEWS! I'll be dedicating the next five days on FTBH to an online retailer with whom I've been collaborating regularly since January of this year: Sugarlips! You've seen their garments on me before - a spicy red dress in the early winter, an indigo romper in Spring, and a fiery paisley gown to celebrate midsummer a couple months ago. Sugarlips is always overflowing with statement gowns (like this snakeskin skater dress) and mix-n-matchables (like this Burtonesque striped blouse). Oh, wait, I just realized that I can actually refer you to a special Sugarlips page that features ALL my favorite selections from their stock! Mmm, efficiency. Look out for my ensembles - one a day till Friday, my friends - showcasing Sugarlips from the sartorial perspective of ~yours truly~. Today? BAROQUE LIKE IT AIN'T NO JOKE.

This look is especially representative of my recent style metamorphosis. I'm kinda over the whole frilly-pastel-babydoll aesthetic, so don't expect to see me in mary janes and a petticoat any time soon...vI'm also trying to distance myself slowly but surely from my once signature blazer-and-heels combo. I feel like it's, in the words of my sister, 'disingenuous' to superficially conform to a bourgeois style standard. Sorry Mom, but the country club thing doesn't inspire me these days! Team silk bomber jacket. I've undergone so much personal discovery and identity reformation within the past couple months, and I subsequently want my style choices to reflect that. Sneakers, cotton slacks, and a loose tee or blouse are my December stand-bys. (This is the part where y'all say "sick alliteration, Beebs!" Yes, you can call me 'Beebs.' WE'RE FINALLY AT THAT LEVEL.) I love you all and am everlastingly grateful for your loyalty and attention. I hope that I may resume the privilege that is engaging in a symbiotic exchange of inspiration within the blogosphere! Mucho love, infinite thanks.
