Found dress, vintage belt, (thrifted) Miss Sixty heels, regular 'ol athletic socks
Here we go, first outfit post of my freshman year! Woo! I live across from Stuyvesant park, which is SUPER nice considering how I can shoot outfit posts in peace without seeming like an egotistical maniac around the students living in my dorm building.
So, this dress has a pretty interesting story behind it.
There I was, walking down Broadway and throwing out an apple three days ago, when a piece of gold fabric draped over a paper bag from Opening Ceremony caught my eye on the side of the concrete. Someone had trashed a fairly large bag full of vintage and designer clothes on the side of the street!
Now, under normal circumstances, I would have been too grossed out to be rifling through a mysterious bag on the side of the street in Manhattan (yikes, yikes and double yikes), but the stuff in the bag was SO COOL. I adopted this number I'm wearing here and a few other pieces carrying the names of Yigal Azrouël, Cheap Monday & Opening Ceremony on their labels. One trip to the dry-cleaners later, along with another tumble in the wash, and I felt confident enough to let these things become wearable in my life.
So yeah! And these socks were just some athletic socks I picked up at a 99¢ store near me. I love how the color just perks up an ensemble a little bit. And it's also nice considering how very difficult it is for me to wear yellow or mustard without looking ill...
So excited you guys!! Classes start tuesday! My pictures are bound to improve seven-fold... I hope!
