Zig Zag Tube Dress by Forever 21 $24.80
And again- for the record, my dress has about half of the amount of stripes as that dress and the yellow is softer and not so bright.
So here's the deal, the other day I went into one of my favorite vintage shops and I saw the most adorable vintage missoni yellow tube dress for $35. I know- pretty sweet. And usually I'm not a hugggge fan of Missoni because sometimes their zigzags give me headaches, but this dress was really tasteful and gorgeous. So of course I bought it. I took it to the drycleaners the other day (I'm kind of anal about that- if I ever buy vintage I usually always take it to the drycleaners... weird I know) and I decided to wear it this afternoon over a tanktop to go shopping. My friend wanted to run into Forever 21 to check out something she saw in the window so I went in with her. And by god if I didn't see my dress hanging there right in the front of the store. I mean, when I got up close and all that mine was way prettier and the colors were nicer but it was practically the same thing anyhow. So I told my friend and we kind of laughed about if for a few minutes and then we decided to leave, well I was walking out of the store and a salesperson came running up and grabbed my arm (ok so I don't know about you guys but I hate it when people just run up to me and just grab me- wherever it is) and she was like panting and she said "YOU HAVE TO PUT THAT DRESS BACK ON ITS HANGER!!!" (and she was screaming at this point). So I just kind of look at her really weirdly for a few seconds before it finally dawned on me, she thought I'd stolen that copy dress! Well I told her that I had gotten this dress at a vintage shop and by god if she didn't believe me, she forced me to come into a dressing room and literally take it off and show her that it wasn't from the store. Ahhh and it took like 20 minutes and everyone in the store was looking at me and stuff. So annoying- especially since I had just gotten it and I was all excited and stuff. Well anyways- sorry for my rambling but I am still a little miffed at the annoying sales lady.
Sorry I wanted to take a pic of my dress and put it up but my camera isn't cooperating.
Ok so anyways- I'm headed off on vacation in the islands for about the next week. So unfortunately- no posting pour moi. But I didn't really feel like making 2 whole posts so I just kind of combined them. At the moment I'm not sure whether I'm going to be able to get internet down there so I'm not sure whether I'm going to be able to reply to comments or anything- sorry but I'll definitely get on it when I get back!
Here are a few of my faves:
Puff Sleeve Henley Dress by Juicy Couture $188
Snakeskin Avignon clutch by JCrew $395
Most definitely NOT going to be buying this one, but I think it is absolutely gorgeous. The silver + snakeskin is absolutely genius (actually everyone is doing that but I just really like the look of this one).
Color Block Dress with Shirring by Clu $165
I don't really know why I like this one so much... but it just catches my eye and it looks so comfy. (and also- isn't Clu the coolest name ever?)
Think Green Tee by Urban Outfitters $28
Yeah I actually really like this tshirt because I'm not a major enviormentalist or anything but I just care about our planet and everything.
Seaside linen-cotton ruffle cover-up by Jcrew $50
Printed Empire Dress by AKA New York $297
Ahhh- I love this one so much. The print is absolutely amazing. It has so many colors and is so unique.
Southbeach Flat by Oh Deer! $185
I just really like these because for some reason, I have an obsession with sequins/shiney stuff/metallic stuff right now and I think that these fit the bill perfectly.
Capri Thong by Oh Deer! $115
These too- for some odd reason they remind me of some cute shoes I used to have when I was little. But anyways- they come in white too but they didn't really show up in the pic (and you couldn't see the cute grommmets and stuff) so voilà the red pair.
Sorry to include two sandals from the same designer but whatever I think that they are both way adorable. And who knew that Oh Deer! made cute flat sandals? I always associate them with sky high heels that have red soles (à la Christian Loubotin- doubt I spelled that right) and anyways- I'm always on the lookout for flat shoes since I'm pretty tall and stuff. I've actually tried on a few pairs of Oh Deer!'s stilettos and surprisingly for all their height and sexiness, they are pretty comfortable. One of my friends bough the black patent strappy pair (
Oh Deer! Mae Heel $89- ON SALE AT URBAN OUTFITTERS!) because she is short and can pull it off pretty easily. Anyways- moving on sorry for my rambling.
Oh yes- by the way, summer reading list is in and
the required books are Life of Pi, The Adventures of Huckleberry Fin and Memoirs of a Geisha... anybody read them? Thoughts?
Happy summer everybody!!!! (or at least- happy almost summer for all of you who are unfortunately still stuck in school/college/whatever the hell everybody's doing now)!!!
