Dress: Bernie Dexter. Shoes: Rachel Antonoff for Bass. Vest: DIY. Socks: Target. Pin: Flea Market
I'm officially on summer break as of Wednesday so I've been partyin hard wif my girlz n gettin hellah tipsy! Just kidding, Literally all I've done the past two days is sleep and pretend to be Lana Del Rey. True story.
However, the day before break this dress came.
CAN WE PLZ TALK ABOUT THIS DRESS?
It came in the mail and I immediately rushed over to open it and started hyperventilating from its beauty. *It was euphoric* (not really but on a scale from April Ludgate to Lucille Bluth it was probably at Liz Lemon)
To state the obvious this dress screams Mary Katrantzou: It's light fairy like fabric is unbelievably tasteful yet bizarre at the same time. While one might compare it to something "lolita like" in nature I find it more romantic, like something out of a 1950's pinup magazine or perhaps something a character in "A Room With a View" would sport. Every time I've styled this dress a different sense of beauty "in amnio habeo"
I feel like in general, fashion has sort of decomposed itself in elegance. In a NYT article I read the other day, the author describes how the way people dress has slowly devolved, people care less about style and more about being comfy. Comfy is fucking lame in my opinion. People with real ovaries of steel aren't afraid to look bizarre. It's the people who aren't afraid to show opinions that are more successful after all.
Take the student body of my High School. Or really any American High School. Nobody gets dress up anymore. It sucks. I'm not saying "I wish it was era x again!" because I really don't. I like 2012.
Enough ranting. I'm beginning to sound like my grandmother.
That's all for now ya dorks,
Oh and a little bit of house keeping: I'm really happy that people read this blog, really, but latley I've noticed a couple of you using pictures of mine and using stuff I say without letting me know or crediting me. I'm thrilled if you want to use my stuff but please make some form of effort to contact me first!
