I'm like a ringleader (I call the shots)

There's only two types of people in the world: the ones who entertain and the ones who observed.. Well I'm a put on a show kind of girl.
Military Coat: Mango | Top: Zara | Skirt: Glitterati | Accessories: Random | Boots: Online | Bag: Givenchy Nightingale

Wore a ringleader inspired outfit which was fitting as we were watching Cirque Du Soleil. I don't know what it is about me but I love dressing for the occasion... it's interesting to play a part sometimes and while this was more "call to arms" than circus, I guess you get the vibe given my coat had a tail. Since it was rainy and we were experiencing typhoon weather back here, I decided it was high time I whip out my thigh high boots and take 'em out for a spin around town. It was a smart choice especially since it covered my legs against the elements esp. the cold since I get really really cold easily. Wore my all purpose Nightingale purse with the look which fit my entire life inside and of course added some bling rings including a cute gold elephant ring which added to the circus theme. (I watched Like Water for Elephants while preparing so I get into the whole circus mood!!!)

Cirque Du Soleil was awesome. Check out some photos I had to sneak taking with my Iphone!!! The set, the VIP Lounge (Tapis Rouge which means Red Carpet, literally) and the atmosphere was inspiring and it added to the vibe! I loved it!
(We were front row and I love the whole harlequin/ pageant of the macabre feel of that night!)
