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.
