I feel like I am dressing too conservatively lately. The motto of 'if you've got it, flaunt it' seems to be passing me by as I dress myself each morning. I convince myself that a top is too low cut, when clearly it is as far removed as low cut you can get. Jersey shore? Now, they are low cut. And I don't just mean their tops. Ooohhhh! I am a Scorpio, after all. I have a bit of a sting!

As some of you might know, I like to day dream. And the minute I saw Chloë
Sevigny's Resort collection for Opening Ceremony, my day dreams went in to overdrive.

What if. Just what if I sauntered into work wearing that leather dress below. Eye. Popping. I don't think my colleagues could handle it. I'd probably be sent home for being a leathery old goat.

{But the thing about this leather dress, is that it is beautiful. Wear it like the model. Sandals, simple hair & make-up and you are done.}

The sexy outfit below needs no explaining. This outfit has the salsa feel about it. Never minding the fact that I have two left feet and can't salsa to save my life. My expertise is in the robot. Not the machine, the dance, more is the pity. But, I know, just know, that if I had that outfit on, I could salsa my life away. Not a bad way to spend your life. Just look at that skirt.

{Day Dreams, be gone! This outfit, especially the skirt needs to be in my life. That would sort my ever growing conservative ways.}

What do you think about Chloë's resort collection for O.C.?

i'm a scorpio as well, and going through the same dilemma! oversized shirts and sweaters dominate my wardrobe... definitely time for us to introduce some new, daring looks!

Go for the less-conservative look now so you won't regret it later!
'Blue Lagoon' had Brooke Shields in it, probably the best thing about it(sort of)

I like those dresses,but too be honest I am not sure if I would find the right place to wear them and maybe they are a bit too short as well.
