today is my ad agency’s 50 year anniversary as a privately-owned marketing company. it’s kind of a big deal, that. we have an awesome celebration party planned for tonight, with a bunch of chicago press and drinks and other fun stuff, so i thought the occasion deserved a little leopard print.
i also dragged out my amazing vintage mink cape, which i thrifted in austin for $12 dollars. it’s pretty much impossible to wear it in chicago, as the weather is consistently either too warm for fur or too cold to wear a cape, but i love it and want to marry it so i bring it out whenever i can.
also, please to check out this two-finger bird ring. my best friend zak bought me this for my birthday 4 years ago and it always makes me feel like a badass when i wear it. and i like that feeling.
outfit details: yellow silk dress was purchased on ebay and has a viola tag in it; mango wedges are fluevogs; bronze two-fingered ring is a gift; olive suede bag is coach; leopard print shirt, fur cape and all jewelry and accessories are thrifted
song inspiration: “satisfied” by tom waits. i know i used a tom waits song in a recent post, but this is the latest single he has released from his new album bad as me and i just had to share it. i am completely obsessed with this album, you guys. it’s pretty phenomenal, still his classic growly, jangly sound but also some gorgeously wistful ballads. i am hoping and praying that he tours for it, as i would do a lot of illegal shit to see him perform this material live. it would be epic, so cross your fingers with me while you enjoy the video.
