Bowie.

There’s a bit of a theme developing here.  Normally my Husband accuses me of channeling the 80s all the time – well not at the moment – I’m all about the 70s.  Remember this photo of Gwen Stefani I shared the other day?

Well as soon as I saw Asos were offering 20% off over Memorial weekend I snapped up the Bowie t-shirt!  I’m thrilled with it.  I’ve bought more from Asos this season than ever before, and everything has been great quality, with free shipping and returns whats not to love?  Right now they are offering 30% off accessories and shoes and there are some great deals!

Unintentionally my Essie ‘DJ play that song’ nail polish was the perfect match for the t-shirt!

While the kids were at camp this morning I snook into the mall.  I know I should never do this – especially when I know the sales are starting soon.  I had been casually admiring this jumpsuit on the Zara site and just assumed that there was not a chance in hell that both the bottom and top half would fit.  The large would be too big in the butt, and the medium too small across the boobs.  Well they had a medium hanging there – new on the rack – so what the hell I tried it!  OMG it was perfect – it’s a lovely crepe material – really light for the summer, and it is much more of a strawberry color than the website pic suggests.  SO 1970s – so Saturday Night Fever – where’s my mirror ball and John?  It’s coming on vacation with me – damn that means I need to bring a pair of heels too!

Gwen’s love for Zara.

My fellow blogger, Hollie, and I are both great admirers of Gwen Stefani’s eclectic rock and roll style – she always looks perfectly put together.  Her make up and hair are always immaculate, even for a trip to the park with her sons.  It was while Hollie and I were chatting about Gwen the other day that I realized Gwen is a fan of Zara!  I have spotted her in three Zara items just this weekend – who’d have thought it?  Gwen obviously embraces pairing high and lower end items – good for her!

Two of the items also happen to be in my closet – no surprise there.  The first is the sarong skirt – I love how she has styled this over leggings…There’s a David Bowie t-shirt on Asos that I have been umming and ahhing about for a while now – it could be the perfect tee to replicate this look.

Next up is my jacket last worn here.  Now I’m not necessarily a fan of her styling here but each to their own…though if I was Italian I’d wear that t-shirt in a heartbeat.

Finally I spotted this photo of her wearing these Zara pants heading to Chuck E. Cheeses – please Gwen how could you bear to step foot in there?  I’d rather stick pins in my eyes.

These photos of Gwen always make me want to to wear red lipstick more often and I’m pretty sure images of her have influenced my choice of attire today.

Finally – I think my children are trying to tell me something – buying these cards obviously amused the Husband no end…I hope you all had a fabulous Mother’s Day!
