Dress: 1970’s Vintage from Vintage Variety; Shoes: Ashish for Topshop; Bangles: Random
My fetish for BIG hair was finally fulfilled by a super cute and cheap solution: A Wig!! I borrowed it from one of roommates and I love it!!! I do wish it were a brunette instead of a blonde though. Now here is a thought [Thought No. 1], if I don’t want to do crazy chemical things to my hair and would like the option to keep my current hair the way it is, is it ok for me to actually wear a wig on a day-to-day basis? I mean if I got a good one, not too fake, can I actually wear it in real life, say for dinner or to the movies? Just a thought. Don't laugh!!
I am proud to announce that if I don’t include my shoes, my today’s outfit costs less than $40 including accessories. Pls don’t ask me to include the shoes. Really. It’s embarrassing.
Found this incredible 1970’s dress at a vintage store in New Jersey [ahh...stop screaming all you Manhattanites..yes yes, I shopped in New Jersey, but the deal was just too freaking good] when I went there a couple of weekends ago to go to the beach. I almost raided the entire store and bought as much stuff as I could carry single handedly back to New York. COZ IT WAS SOO CHEAP!! So here is another thought [Thought No.2], do you think that someone somewhere in the 1970’s had the same exact taste in clothing, colors and style as me and maybe this was her favorite dress and that maybe even she wore / styled this outfit just like I have right now? She could be like my twin from another generation, right? Sooo cool !! My brains sometime have crazy ideas. Not always. Just sometimes. :)
PS: This is one of my favorite styled outfits on myself so far. It's the hair, I know. But I feel the big hair, vintage, leopard print, high high wedges are all my current fav style statements. So all in one is a killer combo. Ok I'm done now. You can go back to whatever you were doing before this. :)
