Truly Truly Truly Outrageous

Do you remember the truly outrageous awesomeness of Jem?  With a simple touch to her magical red sparkle earrings she converted from a high powered attorney to a rockstar of great fame.  This cartoon was a favorite of mine as a child.

As a "grownup", I often feel a bit like Jem/Jerrica.  Granted I am not an attorney, only a retail buyer; and despite my short stint as a tambourine/triangle player in the now defunct Kennedy Bakery,  I am not a rockstar (but I do often attend rock shows).  The feeling comes from giving my all during the day, and once I leave the office finding energy at night to peruse the other things in life I want.  I love both aspects of my life and am grateful to have the energy to pursue both with full intent.  

Case in point, Friday I went to work:

Then went out (to a rock show):
Tank: clothes swap
 Pants: Anthro sale rack \ Shorts: Target 
Scarf: gift \ Leopard Belt: Forever 21
Necklace: Anthro sale table
Shoes: Mia \ Boots: Lucchese 

Now, if I could just find a pair of those magic red sparkle earrings.


P.S. Thanks to Erin for being photographer for the evening.  If you get a second check out her blog, Thrift Store Brand Whore.  She IS a grownup version of Jem/Jerrica, a whip smart music attorney by day, amazing musician and band member by night.
