…j’adore darling…

Describe yourself in 5 words.

“An ejaculation of lifestylizations, DAAAAAAAAAArling!”

…anything to continue the momentism of the glorificationalisation…. More is never enough!


As usual, I’m late to the fawning over ___ party, but damn if I didn’t nominate this woman as my new (well, only) style guru.

Catherine Baba is rocking my world.  So much so that I made myself a turban-esque head dressing and threw it on along with my printiest of print dresses, a kimono/haori, three gold necklaces, a fuzzy jacket and heels.

DIY turban
gifted jacket
vintage haori and dress
Refuge jeans
Aldo shoes
Stoned & Hammered necklaceWhite Fang necklace (both available in the etsy store!), vintage necklace of ridiculous proportions

I felt right wearing this today…I felt right.  Basic jeans and a draped tee just seem so boring now.

The headgear DIY tutorial is forthcoming.

    Dear Alicia,
    great behind-the-blog feature on Dream Sequins today!! I was visiting your blog time-by-time but this is my first visit with leaving a comment… Tadaaaa ;)
    I love Catherine Baba, too! And of course the unique Wendy made the most funniest comment about her on my posting: “She looks so glamorous in her turbans! I wonder if she has any casual day turbans. Turbans for going to the gym and turbans for going to galas.”
    I love all CB’s vintage items so very much. Just fabulous!

      OOH! Wouldn’t that be hilarious??! Baba in the gym with a sweat turban on! LOL!

    The layering is nice, it adds a bit of complexity to your look. Lovely.

    Wonderful blog; by the way.

    I love the Catherine Baba inspiration! It’s totally inspired, but you are definitely owning it! And I love your turban and how you are wearing it! I have one, but I haven’t worn it yet, because I felt like it just looked too awkward on me.

    Okay, I was a little freaked out when I saw the turban, but damn does it look good on you. So what’s the deal with the fauxhawk? Cause I still think you’d rock it!
