Only two photos of this outfit: sorry! I had a busy day [so my grandpa snapped these in his living room]. :) Work, errands for work, a haircut (after these photos were taken: sorry), and then dinner and a movie with my Mama. We saw "The Artist," which I knew was going to be incredible, and OH was it ever! I loved it! So did my mom. Have any of you guys seen it???
Anyway, I was slightly nervous that this dress was "costumey" somehow, but then I thought, well, I like it, so I'm going to wear it! The old adage "Feel good, look good!" is continually proven to me; this dress was no exception and was [happily] very well-received. Plus, wearing your highest heels in your favorite color, a beret, and "Coco Mademoiselle" by Chanel (my new favorite scent) is just a total recipe for feeling fly! not to mention toting your vintage Louis Vuitton...
...I just read over that last paragraph.
I feel the need to explain something: for a plain little girl with not much money living in the middle of hicksville, it's a dream come alive that I can say things like "Chanel" and "Louis Vuitton" without adding "-look-a-like" or "-knockoff" on the end. So I really hope my name-dropping isn't all snobby-sounding...I just never even thought that someone in my financial/geographical situation would ever be able to have those sorts of things, so I can't seem to help myself! :)
THANK YOU thrift stores!!!
