hot damn

Long before Ashely was a retro inspired queen, she and I had almost identical tastes in dresses. In fact, we had this dress in black (her) and blue (me). She found the same one in pink and was kind enough to let me borrow it last year. Fast forward to a week ago when she was selling it and I made it mine. We've been inseparable ever since.

I had a super busy weekend full of sunshine, off beat art fairs, lots of writing, and the pleasure of seeing Every Time I Die and the Used. It was non-stop and wild. But that's how May always seems to go. My sister that lives in Canada is on her way here, the Goodwill Fashion Show is Thursday, and I've got a million other things to write and plan. But hey, at least it's beautiful out.




Outfit Details:
Dress: Ruche
Belt: Forever 21

  1. If she's a retro princess, you look like a rock and roll one. Love the tiara and the slightly tough denim vest together. Glad you got a chance to snap up such a perfect dress.

  2. That dress is so classic! Is that boat-neck?

    Good luck at the fashion show! I know you (and your models) will kill it!

    1. It's kind of a boat neck? I got it in two colors if you want to borrow one or both.
