I had to dress 'casino' themed last night to a friend's party...I wasn't exactly sure what that entailed (never seen the movie, card games bore me) but I took it as a green light to put on an ostentatious disco dress and my favorite shoes...


(vintage dress, various bangles, Margiela shoes)

It turned out to be perfect for the occasion, everyone else was wearing black and white dresses too. Mine was just a little more 'disco slut' than everyone elses. The dress was bought on eBay from Paris, it's very nice quality but I don't recognize the designer.  I haven't worn it yet and was very excited to...for a teenage girl living (basically) in the middle of nowhere fashion-wise, it's a rare oppurtunity that you get to wear a pretty dress without looking like an overdressed wierdo!

In other related news, Mom and I are heading out to town to check out our favorite vintage boutiques and see what new is in at our favorite stores...more updates maybe tonight? depends on homework situation...

LOVE the dress! :D It`s so wild and definately hard to wear without looking like a stone age barbie, but you pull it off so nicely and edgy ;)

Hello! I wanted to give you Karma on thefashionspot (it's shutterbug) but I couldn't so I thought I'd post a message on your blog instead. I'm really in love with your style. This outfit is killer! I like it because there isn't a particular trend to identify, it's just genuinely a brilliant look :)

(haha i'm glad you like the blog, but there's only one girl posting (me)...mom adds her input and lets me take her picture sometimes but is extremely technologically impaired...she is still conquering scrollbars and my touch-mousepad)

I loooove this dress! It looked familiar when I saw it, then I realized it reminded me of a barbie dress from my mom when she was little! =) Anyways, I just love it! Also, I live in the middle of nowhere too...I have so many dresses I'd love to wear but I'm pretty sure that if I walked across campus in them, absolutely everyone would stare, and not in a good way. hehe. =)
