#ThriftStoreTuesday | It’s Sweater Time!

20131021-211741.jpg

Over sized sweaters are super comfortable and can be just as stylish when properly accessorized.

This gray and white sweater is a pick up from last winter that I got for about $5. While it is a little pricey (IMO) for a thrift store buy, the material and the comfort made it completely worth it.

It’s really thick so it keeps me warm. It even kept me cozy during the windy weather in Chicago when I went to see Rihanna earlier this year.

 

I paired this sweater with printed stockings, cut off jean shorts, high socks, combat boots, a scarf, the infamous high Senegalese bun, topped off with a Steve Madden shoulder bag I got from Marshall’s.

This look is pretty typical for me in Fall. I have worn this sweater this way or with leggings, or even a skirt and stockings.

This sweater is one of those versatile buys. Today I wore it with yoga pants, next time I may wear it with jeans.

Either way it is one of my favorite things to wear during this time of year!

Throwback Thursday | “All Is Full of Love” – Bjork

I’ve been in my feelings lately (I blame Drake) so most of the music I have been indulging in are sappy love songs.

This one in particular is not one that captures many people I know but it is on my top 10 of my all time favorite songs, EVER!

Bjork is an Icelander singer/songwriter who I know nothing about but this song.

I saw this video on MTV a long time ago on a random day at 2am. At first, I was extremely confused and thrown off by the two female, kissing robots who clearly were in love. But after hearing the song again, the video began to make sense.

Not sure where director, Chris Cunningham, was going with this one but here is what I get:

“You’ll be given love, you’ll be taken care of.”

The song is talking about everything being full of love. No matter what you do, where you go, who you talk to, you should do it all with love. Remove all hate from your heart and fill yourself with love and peace. If two lesbian robots can find love and feel loved, so can you. But, don’t you go out trying to rush love. You will be given it when it is your time to receive it.

This video is….different. I challenge you to look beyond the obvious and really listen to the lyrics and understand the concept.

Let me know what you think!
