EVERY WEEK, PULL THIS OFF WILL FEATURE A WISHLIST OF THE DROOL-WORTHY THINGS THAT EVERYONE SHOULD BE LUSTING AFTER. LOOKING AT DIFFERENT PIECES OF IN-THE-MOMENT FASHION, IMAGES, ITEMS, AND MORE CAN HELP GET YOUR CREATIVE JUICES FLOWING; HOPEFULLY, THAT INSPIRATION WILL TRANSLATE INTO CREATING SOME AMAZING OUTFITS OF YOUR OWN. SOME THINGS IN THESE WISHLISTS ARE REASONABLE AND SOME ARE OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD, BUT A GIRL CAN DREAM...RIGHT?
As our girl Bad Gal RiRi so sexily crooned on Kanye's All Of The Lights jingle, it's time to turn up the lights because we want you to see this. (You think we're kidding? Verbatim: "Turn up the lights in here, baby / Extra bright, I want ya'll to see this." Yeah, that's right.) Christmas is in three days and New Year's Eve is in nine, so there's lots to be excited about. And aren't the holidays adorned with sequined dresses and sparkly diamonds (hopefully he went to Jared)? In order to turn up the holiday cheer here on Pull This Off, we're gifting you with the cultural exploration of neon L.E.D. light art. You can thank us later.
