In the longing anticipation of spring when you get one day in the winter where it feels like spring, what do you do? I pretended like it was spring already!
This dress is something that I just bought and had to wear the next day itself. Actually I always do that. Whenever I buy something new, I have to wear it the very next day. I can’t wait. Its just a genetic problem… blame it mom ;-). So back to the dress, I found it at this boutique called Callalilai in Soho, which sells very vintage looking clothes, bags and accessories. I fell in love with the window display itself and knew it was my kinda store instantly. I love how this dress has a funky cut and drape to it along with colors and a print, which make it look like something from your mom’s closet. Plus it has POCKETS! [I’m a big sucker for pockets, just FYI].
Its Paired with my purple Steve Madden shoes, purple belt and a clutch I picked up on my last trip to Bombay. I had a purple clutch too that would have essentially gone with the outfit, but when it gets too matchy I don’t like it. Hence editing is super important. And I found this beautiful hair pin at Lucky Brand and I am so in love with it. I really really do love hairpieces. And a lot of times I will just wear that for an accessory and nothing else. No other jewelry.
I also wanted to show the daytime version of the look. Yes, that is what I was wearing while chasing other people on the streets for pictures. The heels changed to flat loafers, the purse changed to a casual rolling stones tote, the black jacket came on to, well, just keep me from freezing my behind off and the skeleton came out to be my date J …soo sweet…holding hands and everything… just “hangin” out [literally] .. aweee...
