I know, I know. I have not been keeping up on my duties to write about all things sparkly since I got back from Berlin, but in my defense, I’ve returned to NYC at the height of holiday party season. Too many parties keeping Da General busy at night and my days are being spent shopping for sparkly things to wear. So not that much has changed really, I just need to work on my time management so that it includes champagne hangovers. However, the one thing you can always count on Soldiers, no matter what, is Sparkle Video Day.
That’s right! I have not missed a Sparkle Video Day since I started this campaign of fabulosity and I am committed to making sure your Fridays are filled with glittering inspiration. That said- I must confess I am growing increasingly annoyed with the corporatization of youtube. When it’s not shoving some company paid promotion or commercial down your throat, it’s taking down amazing and rare vintage disco clips. So today, I am pulling from vimeo and what a glorious gem I have found for you!
Today’s Sparkle Video features two of my all time favorite things, Sylvester and Roller Disco. Sylvester is one of my heroes for many reasons, but mostly because we share the exact same view of fashion and also because he was truly blessed with the ability to turn anything into “an outfit”. Here, he’s wearing a clearly customized purple bedazzled top paired with some sort of uniform pants, but it works.. it works Soldiers, because he oozes fabulosity! I’m also totally feeling Martha Wash’s asymmetrical blue satin caftan that encompasses one leg in a clever harem explosion. Sprinkle in some hotties on skates and gobs of flashing lights accentuated by glorious star filters and there you have it- PERFECTION.
