10.12.2009

This post comes to you in two parts

1. An interview I did with Seventeen magazine is up today on their awesome style blog!

'tis all here, my lovelies:

2.
Yes, we all know it.
The Balmain sparkly mini dress/blazer/boot look was EVERYWHERE this year (after seeing the embellished heels from Spring 2009 duplicated at a Journey's store, I gave an exasperated sigh)
my thoughts on this look range between "alright, enough already!" and "This is too fun!"


So the other day I played with my own inspiration
...I whipped out this little number that has been hanging in the back of my closet for some time now....

this dress came out of a hole-in-the-wall vintage shop in the East Village over the summer. Luckily for me, when I found it, I noticed it had no price tag and I just held it up to the groovy cashier dude & after a shrug and $20, it was mine. SCORE!!

I also gave the look a shot with pink socks & ankle boots

is it just me, or do i look like I'm about to sneeze?

  7. DO YOU KNOW how much perfectionally perfect you look?! LOVE IT.

    But isn't it uncomfortable? Looks like one of those itchy sequin things that we just wear anyways.

  8. it looks so amazing, not many people could pull off a gold sequined mini dress
    AND I LOVE YOUR DOCS. I saw a girl wearing the exact ones at university the other day and my jaw dropped. She saw it and it was a little awkward.
