The Princess Dress

This dress is slightly disney princess on crack. I realize this. AND it’s less intense than it once was – belive it or not! I chopped it! It was full length, you guys. However, it was perfection for my birthday. It felt like the quintessential celebratory frock.
dress – thrifted
sunnies – vintage
heels – Seychelles via Maude Boutique

what I wore: dress – j.h. paul ltd, jacket – vintage leather via grey dog, watch – target, boots – asos, earrings – potters house, bowtie – forever21
This jacket is pretty major. I’m very excited about it. The dress is supposed to have a mid-calf hem but I used some hem tape to shorten and really loved the results.

What I Wore: The Quintessential Fall Dress

what I wore: dress vintage st simon via grey dog, sunnies – potter’s house, socks/earrings/platforms – forever21
I got this dress last winter at Grey Dog. I’m not sure I even wore it last year, it screams Autumn which makes me feel like I should wear it in the fall or not at all. Anyway, if one can manage to fit it into the rotation, it’s so very cute and fun and quintessentially fall.

For someone who loves clothes and dressing in general, Halloween is a veritable holiday. I always look forward to it and this year I found my costume in the form of this spandex dress early this summer. I knew I had to have the dress but honestly couldn’t foresee any appropriate occasion. Then…a light bulb: Morticia Addams (a la Anjelica Huston of course). I’d been devising and conniving for months but it didn’t really come together until late last week when I found the perfect suit for Ro’s Gomez. Ro will pretty much dress as whatever I suggest but he cannot be counted on to procure his own costume. You may find it hard to believe but I really don’t mind shopping for him.  It was as if the stars aligned, I was attempting to find a semi-suitable suit for him without him present which is next to impossible. I happened upon a gray Halston pinstripe ensemble at a local thrift store that was listed at $20. I thought it might be close enough to his size but I wasn’t sure and if it happened to be too small or too short, I would be out $20, which I never enjoy, even with a bargain. I got it home and it literally fit better than some of his tailored suits. I was in thrifted nirvana. We had a fabulous time and I had an excuse to look sullen in photos – which of course, I don’t need.
