Glowing at Home in 2020’s Corona-World

Glowing HeaderHowdy there, folks! It has been a bit quite a while since I posted on the Magic-Ala-Mode side of the internet. But that’s because, up until a few months ago, I was living life to the fullest. I was planning my birthday-related trip to Walt Disney World, getting everything at work as calm as possible, and doing the usual NYC commuting life.

But, as you all know, a certain virus changed everything routine. The trip has been rescheduled, work is now at home, and I haven’t gone into Manhattan longer than ever before. And with so much changing on a day-to-day basis, and in an attempt to not dive into a pool of sadness and CNN, I’m trying to use this time to get things done. The mission: I’m gonna “glow” like I wanted to – but at home.

The Perfect Pair: The Young Girls of Rochefort/Kate Spade Spring 2019

When I describe to people my personal “aesthetic”, I tend to point in the direction of the pop culture that inspires me. There’s Disney related things, Magical Girl genre shows, music videos, retro pin up ads, etc. But there happens to be one particular movie (that I only saw within the last year or so) that really has become the true definition of my style and taste in multiple things – but mostly within its visual language: The Young Girls of Rochefort. And with the release of the new Kate Spade Spring 2019 collection, my love for this movie (and this colorful style) continues to grow.

Pretty in Pink – A Fairy Tale Never Properly Told

prettyinpink_edit

Today, I will have the pleasure of seeing Pretty in Pink on the big screen for a second time. Having watched this movie for the last 15 years on an almost monthly basis, I have a lot of fan girl admiration for it. Part of this fandom eventually included fulfilling a nerdy dream of mine – reading the young adult novelization that is based on the original John Hughes script. And having just finished this hundred-plus-page piece of teen-approved literature, let me tell you, I got a lot to say.

So y’all – this post is full of  feelings. So prepare yourself.

One day (via a collection of text messages), my friend Victoria and I were talking about a variety of topics. From sending each other inspirational pictures, to planning our next after work dinner session, she brought up an interesting point, and it is the kind that makes your mind race in a ton of crazy directions. So hold onto your fashionable seat belts – this is gonna be a hella bumpy kind of post.
