If you follow me on twitter, then you may be aware I'm currently participating in a cruel act of self-deprivation known as a juice cleanse. What brought on this sudden masochistic behavior? I went to the Natural Food Expo this past Sunday and was gifted with boxes of kombucha and fruit smoothies and going on a cleanse seemed like a good way to consume the sudden surplus of liquids. You're right. I didn't exactly think all of this through. After cleansing for a mere forty-eight hours, I feel like a weak and scrawny Tasmanian Devil. The sad part? I'm doing it part-time! Kombucha for breakfast, tea mid-morning, smoothie for lunch, and regular eating once the sun sets. Not bad right? Yet I've ceased all ability to function like a human being. Where's the "cloud nine" feeling I've heard about? The sudden bursts of energy? Lies! I'm done.
I may not be able to control my eating habits, but this outfit, worn to a Genlux party, is a showcase in controlled minimalism. The highly structured two|one|two leather sleeved dress from Rewire Attire is further streamlined by the tuxedo-like vest from Collage Boutique. A simple snakeskin Alexander Wang clutch, signature Hermes cuff, and laser cutout sandals from Pour La Victoire keeps the look controlled and simple. Exerting self-control through style choices...that's an exercise I'll never give up on.
