Sunshiney Days

OOC: Steve Madden interprets the Jelly in a D'Orsay Flat

As the warm sunshine filtered through my giant windows, I could barely keep still or focused.  Tiny rainbows appeared on my computer screen and light reflecting on a mosaic vase created luminous, glitter confetti on my walls like a disco ball.  My fingernails painted the sparkly shade of grape soda pop and blasting The Strokes as I worked (multi-tasking), I would have to periodically get to up stretch and do a mini dance to avoid exploding from too much energy.  This is my life.  Crazytown.   

Now that we are ever so close to Spring (yes!), here are some tips for making the most of the sunshine:

  • Take Care of Your Tootsies - Very soon, there will come a day where the temperatures rise above 20 degrees celsius and you will want to christen your new wedges or multi-strap gladiators that you ‘bought now to wear later’ in January.  But then you will look down at your unkempt toes and with your better judgement, you will decide otherwise.  Inside you will be crushed with pangs of ‘shoulda, coulda, woulda, didn’t’ and ‘Frick! I really wanted to wear my new shoes dammit.’  Don’t be that girl.  Instead, book a pedicure in advance and choose the richest, brightest most decadent nail polish on the shelf.  OPI for Sephora is giving us It’s Bouquet With Me (purple sparkles), Cover Me in Petals (hottt coral) and for the super-adventurous Leaf Him At the Altar (iridescent green). Then when you’re with your girlfriends, you can gently prod, “Wanna see my toes?”
  • Spring is in Bloom –  Romance your wardrobe with a few new pieces.  Bouquet brights are very IN – sandy corals, blush pinks, tulip shades and lavenders will have you skipping in the streets.  Trust. It’s colour therapy.  Why not try one of these fresh colours in a classic cut like a trench coat or a peplum jacket? If someone comments, ” Oh, you’re very colourful.”  Just respond, “I am colour.” 
  • Return of the Jelly? – I leave you with a parting thought:  Jelly shoes for adults?  How do you feel about this?  I think this is kind of fun.  I mean, I am really going to promote bringing skipping back this summer and it would be reallyx3 fun to do it in jellies.  What if one of them flies off mid-double dutch?  That’s pure comedy.  And I do recall having an impressively, extensive jelly shoe collection in a rainbow of colours.  My favourite pair was cobalt blue.
