Hey, Baby. What’s Your Sign?

September 09, 2015

Now that I think about it, my childhood was filled with a certain mystical presence. From the Starscroll astrology machine in the movie theater lobby (remember those?!) to the constellations twinkling overhead in the science museum’s planetarium to the Ask Grandma fortune telling booth at the local five and dime, I’ve long been captivated by the idea of messages and unforeseen powers from the great beyond.

This affinity for the cosmic and magical has taken a very couture turn in many of the Fall 2015 designer collections! I have had a stellar time shopping all the new galactic garments and astrological accessories illuminating the stores this season. If you’re attracted to the shimmer of a starry night, you’ll definitely find inspiration in the celestial collections below!

Last weekend, I stopped in at T.S. Chu on Tybee Island, Georgia where over the years Ask Grandma has mystified four generations of my family!

World Famous Prague Astronomical Clock

 IMG_0275 (2)

When Dean and I were touring Prague in the spring, we strolled right past the famous Astronomical Clock in the Old Town Square! Built in 1410 and still working! According to those all-knowing folks at Wikipedia: The clock mechanism is composed of three main components: the astronomical dial, representing the position of the Sun and Moon in the sky and displaying various astronomical details; “The Walk of the Apostles,” a clockwork hourly show of figures of the Apostles and other moving sculptures—notably a figure of Death (represented by a skeleton) striking the time; and a calendar dial with medallions representing the months.

You’re gonna die. I have this. Me, she of the very fair skin! And you know what? I love it. I do! But then I never met a rainbow micro glitter I didn’t want to kiss. It’s sheer black but doesn’t look it when you put it on. It deepens the shades of lighter lipsticks; if I wear it alone it tones down the pink in my natural lip color and just gives a bit of sparkle.

Here are the product deets: “Dehydrated hyaluronic microspheres slip into the lips’ fine lines and hold the water naturally present within the skin’s surface. Like small sponges, they soak in the water and increase their volume by up to 50 times for an immediately smoother effect.”
