As a 80's baby, Saturday Morning Cartoons was a way of life. I watched everything from GI Joe, Transformers, Thundercats, He-Man, She-Ra, the list goes on. One could say that I was a TV junkie, but hey there were a lot of good shows back then. One of my all time favorites was Jem & the Holograms. I loved watched Jerrica and the crew running a music company and selling out shows. This look is the perfect combination of Jen & Jerrica, fun, professional, and pink.
This season the pleated skirt (irregardless of the length) has become the must have skirt. I was on the hunt for a silver metallic skirt, but could not find one in plus. Gunmetal- yes, but silver, not at all. Then I was browsing the new arrivals from Fullbeauty, and found it- yes a silver metallic skirt!!! I ordered it with the quickness and checked the skirt off my list. When it arrived in the mail, I noticed it was much more than a silver skirt. It was holographic. Yup, the perfect silver metallic skirt was a holographic silver skirt. Immediately Jem came to mind, and I was like you know what, this is the best of both worlds. It's cool enough for Jerrica to wear during the day and funky enough for Jem to wear on stage. One could not be happier with this Jessica London skirt.
My turtlenecks are still in heavy rotation, and this one from Violeta c/o Mango is a great staple to have. I wish their clothing came higher than a 20, but they do make well made staples that you can wear forever. The skirt has blue & pink undertones so I decided to wear my pink heels and moto jacket. I ended out the look with another hologram piece, my oldie but goodie purse.
