Run and hide your crazy and start acting like a lady
Cause I raised you better
Gotta keep it together even when you fall apart
But this ain’t my mama’s broken heart
“Leave it to me to be holding the matches when the fire trucks show up and there’s nobody else to blame.”
Honestly? I just love the lyrics in this song. It’s had me giggling all last night and today. That’s really the only reason I’m blogging it. Lately traveling back and forth between the rental and the new house, I’ve heard it on the radio a lot. It’s a couple years old, but it’s one of those things I forgot exists until hearing it again.
And it’s great!
Anyway, you’re getting stuff in a bit of a reverse order today. You’ll get a press release about Rock Your Rack a little bit later today, but I couldn’t resist blogging this when I got it yesterday for one of the fashion shows to take place during the event. I just fell in love!
Yesterday was quite a long day, so to get this little gem in my inventory somewhere in the middle of all of it, I was able to have something really awesome to wear to the last scheduled meeting/rehearsal for Rock Your Rack last night. Jamee and the team are working incredibly hard to bring an event that surpasses expectations set by last year’s amazing turnout.
This particular outfit is one of Lavian & Co’s Autumn/Winter ’15/’16 releases for the event, and I tell you what, they NEVER disappoint me in color options. I’m such an indecisive person, and I love having tons of options to play with, and with this particular outfit… brace yourselves… the HUD gives you 36 (yes, THIRTY-SIX) different colors for the main body of the jacket, 36 colors for the sleeves, 36 colors for the pants, and 36 colors for the belt. Mix and match to your heart’s content! I was in heaven for a good few hours playing with all the different colors. Meanwhile, my partner was in his own personal hell watching me mess with them and not be able to decide what I wanted to wear. Lol.
The shoes you can see in the picture below are also from Lavian & Co’s Autumn/Winter ’15/’16 line, and come with the same 36 color options to make sure you can perfectly match from head to toe. The HUD is split into two options… one with silver accents and one with gold accents, which I particular appreciate, because mixing silver and gold is such a rarity for me, it’s nice to be able to tailor these shoes to whatever metal I may be wearing that day. Today it was Silver.
I don’t wear red that often… which is surprising as it’s Classis’ (Classis IS Rodric, for those that keep asking. Lol.) favorite color. But when I do wear red, because it IS his favorite color, I tend to go all out. The makeup are a few staples from my favorites, Nuuna, Madrid Solo, and Pink Fuel. I wanted something fierce but not too… busy? Busy makeup is my weakness. /I/ think it’s awesome, but then it becomes too much with everything else going on in an outfit. I’m working on that.
I can always count on Maxi Gossamer for the jewelry I need for stuff like this, and she certainly didn’t disappoint.
The hair is one I forgot I had, from Exile, and I’ve fallen in love all over again.
I can tell you one thing. This was just one item I received for a runway show for Rock Your Rack, but as a blogger, you can guarantee if given the opportunity I will DEFINITELY be bringing you more of this fierceness from Lavian & Co. It is fast becoming one of my favorite brands all over again.
