Its That Casino Type of Dress

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Im back in Palm Springs for the four day weekend.
Thought Id change it up and not edit these photos.

I recently read the newest issue of Nylon with M.I.A. on the cover and I have to say, I am in love with her. I mean, the woman just doesnt give a damn. The fact that she can openly admit that she hired a couple of people because she just liked their hair is admirable. Aw man, major girl crush happenin right here. Thanks for being an inspiration M.I.A., and keeping your integrity along the way.

Vintage dress from Ramona West.

i love your blog, as always, and love the unedited pictures, but i just wanted to suggest that you resize your pictures because i get your content off a feed and it takes forever to load!

Diana said...

Interesting that you mention M.I.A. because she's been in the news lately:

MIA? I guess you haven't read the NYT article about her. I'm not sure anyone could come out of it liking the woman.

Ashley Kins said...

I was just going to send you a link on the MIA article from NYT. Aesshen beat me to the punch of mentioning it, though. I used to love her but this takes a different tone.

The contrast of your dress against that window with the high ISO and exposure... that dress...

You look like you're posing in a summer dress against a field of desert snow. It's really cool.

I totally agree, amazing article...I'm not usually thrown head over heels by cover issue articles like that, but it covered so many unexpected sides of her, and I was completely surprised. Major girl crush with hearts.

princesspolitico said...

i read the same article - i love the fact that M.I.A. is apologetically brash and fiercely creative. this ramona west dress looks so comfortable... just perfect for the sunshine!

Emilie said...

Sweet dress. Cool print and I like the structure and length of the dress a lot, where it becomes the waist/skirt, the sleeves, etc...
