Lookbook: As a Lighted Window at Dusk

I had such a relaxing, do-nothing weekend. I actually napped in the middle of the day. Napped! I never do that. Finally all caught up on Sons of Anarchy. If you're a fan of the show, feel free to hit me up on Twitter so we can start a Samcro conversation.

In other news, I made the top 8 in the WWD Magic contest, which means I'll be blogging in Las Vegas in February and I'm so happy! It'll be my first time at Magic so I hope it'll be a great early birthday present to me. I couldn't have done it without your votes, so thanks so much for getting me there, muses!

What I love most about this look are the gold cuffs and the lace v-neck. It's a bit risque but totally worth it. Anyway, I want to talk a little about a word I learned recently. Sonder - the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own.

I'm sure you've felt this feeling before when you're outside in the middle of a crowd or all alone and you take a second to be aware of life and to truly see that the people around you are the backdrop to your life, and you are the same to them. That's just an amazing moment, even if you only notice it for a few seconds at a time.

alexis said...

Congrats on Magic!!! I am sure you will have a blast :)

First, I love the gold details of this look- especially on the shoes.

As for Sonder: I always find it a lot easier to be me and to take risks when I realize my life isn't the center of the world (not from a selfish perspective- but from a self conscious one). Isn't it amazing how varied and full each life can be!?

The spiked knit hat and jewellery are my favourite! I voted twice, hehe, so cheers you made it. You will have fun, Magic was always interesting & good times when I went, although it was work related!:)

Dee Kay said...

Congratulations on winning! I cant wait to see the post from Las Vegas, that should be tonnes of fun. This is the first time I'm hearing about this word sonder, but I always reflect about people in that way especially when I'm out in the world or all alone lost in my thoughts. I acknowledge that there are other people out there either going through life and it's ups and downs just as I am or are living a completely different life to mine and are completely unaware of my life experiences, but in my case these thoughts are perpertuated by the fact that I've lived far away from my family for most of my adult life in foreign places so it only comes natural to think of what the other side is doing at any given time. Ok lol sorry for the long comment :) love your shoes and the peekabo lace is so cute, I also love the striped pants!
