I probably read 'Water for Elephants' faster than any book I have ever read. The characters were interesting, charismatic and compelling (that Sara Gruen knows what shes doing!). If you haven't read it yet... go get yourself a copy! If books are not your fort-ay, then not to worry... the movie will come out sometime next year. And yes, you wild Twilight fans, Mr. Robert Pattinson will be playing the lead role of Jacob, along side the dazzling Reese Witherspoon.
Who doesn't love a circus? Of course... I could do without the creepy clowns but it all adds to the ambiance that a circus portrays. Right?? This ambiance that everyone is unique in their own way and yes maybe even a little "freakish". I like to think of fashion being like a giant circus... where everyone is their own ring leader... or elephant girl... or even fire breather. I mean who hasn't thought about running away to join a circus?? Well if running away isn't in your cards... but you still want the thrill of circus life... I recommend adding a few circus pieces to your wardrobe. While researching for this blog, I found several circus-esque styles that can easily be followed by any common audience member.
You can find bright/textured tights at your local H&M and Forever 21 (for less than $10!), you can also search for any tailored blazer or jacket with metallic embellishments or you can opt for circus related jewelry (like the charms above).
Either way you go, know that you're not the only fashion "freak" out there.
So, live it up my fellow ring leaders!
