I still can't believe I only payed eight dollars for this vintage dress. It's so well made, I love the number of panels and the ruffles on it as well. I've spoken at length about the shopping trip which yielded this gem as well as the memories I ave attached to red and florals on blue. Since buying it I've tacked the hem to make it asymmetrical (since I can't bare the thought of butchering such a lovely dress!) I feel totally unstoppable when I wear it, and the number of looks from strangers it attracts doesn't bother me at all.
The shoes which make me feel like the hyper literalisation of a 50 Ft Queenie are my Meadham Kirchhoff boudoir platform heels. But then I feel sad because the company doesn't exist anymore despite several commercially successful collaborations with Topshop. The fact that they are heavy and so well made does cheer me up though, especially when I am clomping around the house or carefully treading on cobblestones in the city.
Heavily inspired by the rare birds of Advanced Style, I basically wanted to wear an outfit which made me feel fabulous. As I found out, style and feeling fabulous is a state of mind which can be helped by wearing oversized earrings and a sequin covered turban. To dress this look down I wore my trusty Nike Roshe shoes I bought second hand for forty dollars. When else am I going to have a pair of shoes that perfectly matches my dress?
