For my mother's birthday, Victor and I took her to see Penn and Teller, on their last night performing at the Apollo Theatre in London. They were wonderful, of course - I don't even want to know how they do the stuff they do, I just want to watch it and be amazed, you know?
Ever since I bought the tickets, I knew I wanted to wear this blouse to the show, but I wound up picking these pants as a last resort. Pinstripes and little images of the moon's surface, that's not a pattern-mix you see every day. And with sandals, no less! But weirdly, I ended up loving this outfit enough to blog it - so who cares if it's a bit weird. (The grey jacket grounds it all, anyway. Ahem.)
It would take forever to explain why, but I have a bit of a thing about the moon. That's not to say I'd buy any old tacky goth jewellery or new-agey spraypaint "artwork", okay? I'm not that much of a space-cadet! In fact, I didn't own any moon-related jewellery until I got this necklace, but it just called out to me. Same thing with this blouse - who even thinks of making a pattern out of the different phases of the moon? Genius.
This was another item sweet Jenni helped me get my hands on - thanks so much, babe! - because of course Anthro would make two beautiful products featuring my favourite celestial body and then not sell them in my country... I'm lucky to have such good friends "across the pond"! And yes, my post title is a reference to this little short film, and the rather famous song that goes with it. One of my favourite songs, of course.
