DC Part 2: The Outfit

It's been hell looking for a "floral" dress for Ingrid's wedding (two of my homegurls bought floral dresses so I can't be the odd sheep). Of course I wanted to buy vintage, but the regular spots: Wasteland and Crossroads didn't have shit to offer. I did not want to start looking at the mall, but I really did not have a choice so I checked out Macy's and no luck there either. Well, there was a cute Anna Sui dress that looked vintage, but I did not want to pay $80 for it because I set myself a super low dress budget of $50. Frustrated and empty handed I went home and looked through all of my dresses and I decided that I will wear the one bellow because frankly it's ideal for a wedding. I feel kinda naked from the top, but I figure I can drown my chest in a mirage of necklaces or hair. The bottom is totally outdated because it has a tail on one side, hella 90's so the solution is to chop it and make it even and a bit more youthful. I decided to use the money that I would have spent on the dress to buy new shoes, why not right? I had slight trauma from all the giddiness when I saw these two platforms on super sale for $40 each pair and I just couldn't leave the store with one but not the other. I will have to take photos of the shoes on me because they are so fresh and beautiful and totally rock n roll. My Steve Madden's are actually navy blue which will go perfectly well with pretty much everything that I own, but they look so cute in lilac too, don't you think? Btw, I still haven't decided which ones I will actually wear with the dress and I still have to choose a hairstyle and jewelry from my own collection so this outfit is not yet complete. 12 more days til' DC!

  1. Nice dress! Both shoes will work... one style for each foot, perhaps?
