The Sign

Music Playlist at

I know, I know.  I am wearing sequins in the daytime but I can totally explain.  There is completely logical explanation.  My horoscope told me to.

I am a proud Aquarian and totally fit the description in every way--friendly and humanitarian, honest and loyal, original and inventive, independent and intellectual . . . intractable and contrary, perverse and unpredictable, unemotional and detached.  

I don't put much credit in my horoscopes.  It's really just a fun thing to check into.  I get my daily horoscope emailed to me and when it came to me last night telling me to "wear a shiny, sparkly, attention-getting shirt today in order to spice up your life and the attitude of the people around you", I immediately thought of this top.

For some reason, when I got compliments on this tunic today, I felt the need to explain this phenomenon.  And for some reason, everyone looked at me like I was a lunatic.  Little did they know that by merely commenting on the top (which there were a lot of compliments on it), they were unknowingly being sucked into my astrological genius. 

It certainly helped to brighten up an otherwise drizzly and overcast day.  We were in the 50's today.   THE 50's!!!!!  Hello fall!

But I also got to thinking that Patrick is also an Aquarian.  I wonder if he remembered to wear his shiny shirt. . . *

*Note-Patrick works in IT.  He sadly does not own a sparkly shirt.

  1. i love sequins in navy! i have a dress like this :)

  2. Ohwow! That top is so pretty and I love it with the floaty white skirt. I like reading horoscopes. Mine never give me good advice. Just summarize what's going on. Maybe because I'm a Capricorn?

    Anyway thanks for the kudos on my bad news. We're trying to turn them into good things. Just shifting gears. I admit I still had a tantrum when I found out, but now I'm good and making new plans.

  3. Hey I'm an aquarian too!!! Had I known, I totally would have busted out my sequin tank today. Maybe that explains why when I popped into Forever 21 last night on my way home from work I was inexplicably drawn to this (hideous) gold sequin dress...

  4. I love wearing sequins during the day and that top is so amazing! I love this top, and the definition of being Aquarians! Aquarians unite!

  15. I'm glad it worked for you!
    I've been meaning to wear my sequined shirt for a while. I pulled it out of the closet and hung it on the door so i'd be forced to think about it... but i'm just stuck on how i want to wear it.

  16. What a fun top!! Your shoes are also pretty awesome :)

  17. Yay! Thanks Meg! I find Ace of Base and Aquarians equally awesome!

  18. Aw! Next time I'll send out a bulletin! Yay Aquarians! Thanks Rebecca!
