hello friends- and happy 2019!! 

i am crawling out from underneath a slumbering toddler
to tell you, yes, i still consider myself a fashion blogger-
even though, technically, google starts populating for "Amazon"
before "Aglimpseofglamour," when i start to type my blog name 
in these days! sad, but true.

like i mentioned in my blog post from july-- 
time has a way of passing both quickly and slowly
 when you have children. 

 a two-hour birthday party at an indoor playground can
 C R A W L by and make you feel like time has stopped altogether 
because the party runs from 12-2pm and it has been 1:55 pm 
for 5 hours already!???!!! 

or you can *blink* and you're 4 months into a new year 
with nary a blog post in sight!

luckily, ADEXE Watch London recently gave me the gift of time:
which is not only a beautiful, finely crafted timepiece--
but also the perfect excuse to grab lunch with my
blog bff, lei ann, and snap some 
early spring photos!

my outfit is made up of a vintage black and white polka dot off the shoulder dress,
which i have paired with a collection of red accessories- one of my favorite
heart crossbody bag, and red shoes from a new day.

lastly, my watch works simply and seamlessly with the look
to accent my dress
and keep me right on time.

if you haven't seen ali wong's comedy shows:
 baby cobra and hard knock wife on netflix yet-- 
do yourself a favor and go binge-watch them right now,
and come back to me and read this post. 

so funny, right??

on top of the fact that she is absolutely freaking hilarious,
i am in love with her personal style- which always includes
some quirky eyewear + a playful print.

according to wong, when it comes to fashion:
 " the more glitter, the better. because when you're a mom,
you need sparkle, to compensate for the light inside of you that has died."
(hard knock wife)

and with regard to glasses: 
"for me, glasses are like shoes for your face.
and because i'm not willing to wear heels,
it's a nice way to accessorize and change them up." (the cut)

when i turn on the radio these days,
everything sounds like the exact same song-
or a re-mix of a song that already exists-
or ed sheeran!

thankfully, janelle monae's new album,
dirty computer,
is a breath of fresh air and fresh beats!
politically charged and fashionably inspiring,
her "emotion picture" (below) adds visual
 and texture and a dialogue to the
conversation about women's rights,
gay rights, and the power
 of black girl magic.
