and i'm feeling good...


Do I have any Nina Simone fans in the house?

(Raises hand.)

Perfect! Then perhaps you can relate to this as well -- something about this Jonanthan Simkhai number, when I shimmied into it last week, screamed Nina Simone's "Feeling Good" to me. The glove-like fit, the peplum, the cheeky netting cutouts -- I just couldn't help myself -- I had to walk around D.C. with that song blasting for a few blocks (and then some). And man, I have to say, there's nothing quite like having your own brass section kick in when you're walking (heck, can I say strutting in this instance?) down the street.

Does anyone else do this? Have mini soundtracks inspired by their day or perhaps something they're wearing in a particular moment?

  9. I'm definitely guilty of creating soundtracks inspired by my day! haha! I really love the top and skirt set on you! I love the simplicity of it and the lace fabric is so pretty!

  10. You have a way of looking UBER sexy, yet still so understated at the same time...such a great style! Btw, how about Nina Simone's "Sugar In My Bowl" -- now that's a great song also!

    1. Oh thanks lady! Your comment just made my day! I don't typically wear body hugging dresses -- they intimidate me! But perhaps I'll have to make more of a point to incorporate them! And totally going to listen to that song now -- thanks for the tip! :)
