Every so often that catty hag Mitch goads me into action by casually asking, "Why is your blog so boring?" Mmmmhmmm. So of course I have to go blog something to appease the beast, and assuage my own guilty conscience.
This outfit was born out of necessity, like many happy accidents. I had a drink with Mitch after work, planning on returning home that evening and of course ended up having a few too many and watching fashion shows on style.com all night, and never making it home. Waking up the next morning, I found myself with one outfit option, a dress I had brought over for sewing repair and my Chanel boots from the previous day. I would never have opted for these boots with this conservative vintage dress, and yet it worked. Pumps with this dress would be so staid and uninteresting, but the boots add a tomboy flavor.
I also never wear all black, but the dress is actually navy and for some reason, I feel like I am going to a socialite's funeral in this get-up.
Dress is vintage from high school. I think I paid $1.00 for it. Go, me!
Chanel boots fall 2011
Fur coat is also vintage, with big 80's Dynasty shoulders. A gift from a friend...
Alligator bag is from Goodwill, also from a good friend. He paid $2.00.
I actually put on some makeup today, great new eyeshadow by Everyday Minterals. It went on easily and comes in great neutrals, like olive green and a brown/green moss color.
Also a hideous bright red lip color by Wet n Wild, which looks great if you blot it and wear as a stain instead of garish lipstick.
