Good Night and Good Luck

I call this dress my goodluck dress, not because I ace tests or win the lotto in it, but because I have the absolute most fun in it. Last month I went to a party in it and not only did I receive a compliment from basically every other girl in the vicinity, but also that was probably the best party I have ever been to. Last Thursday I put it on and headed out to Malibu with my mother to hang out with Chip and Pepper Foster of Chip & Pepper and also Pray For Mother Nature denim. Amongst other fun things (like free denim, yay!) the highlight was climbing the roof of their house and just chillin, you know, lookin at Catalina and the beautiful Pacific Ocean. (Thankfully I have photos of that crazy roof climbin' experience)

Coincidentally, both the dress and the bracelets I am wearing are from my aunt. She found the dress at a thirftstore a month ago and showed it to me. At first, I was hesitant, and my mother just plain hated it, but after trying it on, I decided to go home with it. I am so glad I did. It reminds me of some sort of victorian nightgown in the 1800s (of course with a modern/sherlock holmes/houndstooth/manly twist.) The bracelets are from a flea market, and last week I wore them 7 days in a row. No joke. Every single day. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday etc. etc and so on. I am in love with these bracelets... absolutely obsessed.

Vintage dress, ripped tights, vintage bracelets, Verameat ring, Chanel nail polish, Jeffrey Campbell Alexa wedges.

You styled the dress very good, those flatforms(such a funny new word in fashion vocabulary :D) give that vintage dress an edgy young vibe, plus the sheer tights with a rip update the look instantly! I can see where you are coming from about the bracelets, they really would GO with every outfit! :)

The dress feels so vintage and edgy at the same time, and you wore it beautifully. I especially love the bracelets, I can see why you're obsessed with them and wore them everyday for a week. :D

usually I love your outfits, and I love this one too, except for one thing about the dress: honestly put, it looks like you woke up in the morning and forgot to put on pants. It's a bit short for a dress, don't you think?

Those wedges are INSANE!!! LOVE them so much!! Your look is lovely too, you have a great sense of style

The dress is really fabulous. I love clothing with interesting shapes and silhouettes. It looks great with those super tall shoes too. And the bangles are pretty perfect. I can see why you're obsessed with them. I can't wait to see the pictures of you on the roof!
XOXO

Very cute shoes !!

Kate said...

Love your blog and your style. However, I'm pretty sure that's not a dress. That's a smock. I had to wear something very similar (except in a different fabric) in my art classes when I was in elementary school.

Anyway, nothing wrong with wearing a smock. Just saying.
