Photo of the Week No. 38: I Spy in the Sky

September 19, 2018

Look, up in the sky! It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s a ginormous gold hand? So random! This Photo of the Week was taken during a recent trip to New York. I happened to glance out of an 11th-floor window and had to do a double take. What would possess a person to put a massive hand atop a building? A radiant gold one at that. Well, at least I now know the culprit (I’m convinced there’s nothing a Google search can’t find!). This shiny hand sits on top of the Madame Tussauds celebrity wax attraction in Times Square. I have to hand it to them though (See what I did there?! LOL). It’s quite the conversation starter. I just love how this sculpture(?) is out there shining, doing it big on a New York City rooftop — an Easter Egg of sorts hiding in plain sight. What a treat this is for those who are lucky enough to catch this scene! Keep your heads to the sky, observant ones 🙂

1. It’s about that time! Now that the gift-giving season is in full effect, I’m putting my wish list out there, and The Exchange Watch in black/stingray is at the top of it. Not only is it fit for everyday wear, it’s got tons of style. (fludwatches.com)

2. Wait a hot second! You mean to tell me that Fossil sells more than watches these days? Well, clearly I’m tardy for the party. However, I refuse to let you sleep on this Robot Resin Clutch. The side panel kinda resembles a robot, when you look closely. I must say, “Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto!” The future never looked so bright and trendy. (fossil.com)

3. Something about this Hot Glam Pencil Skirt just screams “holiday head-turning.” This sassy little number works at the office Christmas party just as well as at the New Year’s Eve bash. Pour me a glass of egg nog, and let the festivities begin! (pockettboutique.com)

4. Though I haven’t been amused by these rain clouds over Los Angeles this week (or the chill they’ve brought), this Clouds Print Beige Blouse more than makes up for it. Throw a statement necklace on this top and heat things up. (romwe.com)

5. The lumberjack look gets a hip makeover with these Chums Big Mike’s Overalls in mustard yellow. They’re made of a durable but soft cotton, which makes them the ultimate cozy coverall. (urbanoutfitters.com)

1. All that glitters is not gold, but in this case, these heart-shaped earrings are simply golden. The fact that these Chloe Heart Studs by Gorjana have a rich texture and welcomed imperfections places them at the top of my wishlist.(revolveclothing.com)

2.Speaking of texture, this Dorothy Perkins Toffee Brown Large Satchel Bag plays with an assortment of it, from the smooth leathery winged sides, to the crocodile peeking out at the bottom, to the gold buckle tying it all together. (dorothyperkins.com)

3. There’s just something about this deep blue hue that has my heart at the moment. This Short Seamed Jacket With Zip from Zara is straight to the point, and I’m all for the no-nonsense approach to fashion. (zara.com)

4. It’s about time I gave the boot to my all-too-predictable flats, in favor of these Taupe Faux Leather Thigh High Riding Boots. Why not live on the edge with these daringly tall wedges? I can already think of at least five ways to style them, which means I may as well go ahead and add them to my fall repertoire. (cicihot.com)

5. This Blue Textured Pleat Midi Skirt just exudes the studious, lady-like, daydreamer and maven vibe — all at the same time. And this shade of blue is a force to be reckoned with. (glamorous.com)
