What I want to wear today | Moda Operandi and Dreams of Something Sunny


What I want to wear today | Narcisco Rodriguez

I am caught in another cycle of cold weather, kids, winter break, and work-heavy obligations sooooo of course that leads me to dream of impossibly chic charmeuse gowns and skyscraper heels.   I have absolutely 100% fallen for an online clothes porn haute couture website, Moda Operandi {Shop Trunkshows Here}.   So,  as I flip the virtual pages of Valentino, Prabal Gurung, and Narcisco Rodriguez {many many many many more...} I feel a great and NEEDED distance from my surroundings.   I love the gown by Narcisco Rodriguez above and can imagine a a very fanciful occasion with  sparkling lights and stimulating conversation amongst a swirl of the heavy silk charmeuse.    I have in my mind's eye that this gown would be absolutely wow! on a beachy venue with golden tanned limbs and a just a simple sweep of lip gloss and the blackest of mascara.

In my dreamy state {again putting some distance between me and the freezing rain and full-time work, kids, and RESPONSIBILITIES} I am thinking about my trip to Costa Rica last summer.   It was heaven on earth and I hopefully with have the chance to visit Villa Marrakech again.   The beach, the sunshine, the Pura Vida; all of it so perfect.  I have in my mind that these pants would have been perfect for Costa Rica {another option here}.   I think the silky gorgeousness and bright design makes for a stylish travel pant.   It isn't so loungy like putting on my bikini and heading to the airport, but it would make a nice transition from the U.S to paradise.   I imagine these beauties with an array of tops like a bright white tank or Kain t-shirt.   I love the platform sandals in this picture but I would also probably slip a pair of flat sandals in my suitcase too {like these, or these, or these}.

With spring break coming up it wouldn't hurt for me to get a REAL clothing plan instead of my fantasy sympathy COMFORT EATING  SHOPPING thing that I am doing on Moda Operandi.   Im sure it is like any addiction and I should cut back gradually- maybe I will scale back to Net-a-Porter  {sigh and smile}.
