NAVIGATE

two bandits crossed the street

July 13, 2009

Just a quick post for now since I haven't been able to catch my breath since Thursday. I bought this amazing crinoline on eBay a few weeks ago and was so entirely stoked on wearing it out. However, the handful of stares and the embarrassed boyfriend makes me a little hesitant to pull it out again. It is HUGE in person - a lot bigger than how it looks on camera, but I am definitely going to whip it out again for an upcoming event.


Anyways, I picked out my winner by means of a random number generator and emailed the winner this morning. Sorry if you weren’t picked! There are plenty more giveaways to join from Chickdowntown.com.

Another thing that I am just obsessed with are boot accessories. I got these adorable bow details from The 2 Bandits (website and online store here!) and I've been throwing them on my Miu Miu's and these Aldos. It totally adds character to an otherwise boring pair of boots. I'll get a close up shot of them later (along with another studded pair I got - LOVE)

I think I need to buy more tubetops. I am going to infiltrate my "basic's" drawer with tubes to last me the rest of summer.


Edit: I'm a retard, and I accidentally deleted the original photo from Photobucket. Luckily I had an alternative pictures, yet, much less attractive.

  25. It's beautiful!And the contrast with the leather boots is absolutely fantastic!

  26. Hey fuck them bitches LOL wear what you like :) I think it's very pretty... I like your boot bow thingies too

  27. i love the skirt. screw the people giving you awkward stares. most are just jealous because they know they can't pull it off like you can..or they don't have the guts to wear it because they're scared what others will think or say. you've got style & courage and that's all that matters, work it girl!

  28. That skirt is freaking AMAZING- people just think everything has to be the same as what they wear... pay no attention to the stares, at least you got noticed.

  29. Coulda sworn I already commented o nthis (excuse me if I already did).

    Wuv the spats, and you in a tube top!

  30. That crinoline is AMAZING! Was it from an eBay store? Or just a seller?

  31. your skirt is great. i'd walk with you down the street any time.

  32. I love crinolines! I bought an even more horizontal one a long time ago but haven't found the opportunity to wear it yet. I know what you mean about embarrassed boyfriends, mine would probably actually get mad at me for wearing something so "ridiculous."

  33. Great mix of feminine with the tough boots!

  34. Wow you look really stylish

  35. That has got to be one of the coolest outfit's ever! Ooober RAD

  36. very carrie opening sequence but updated with the tough boots and brown belt. i wouldn't let anyone make you feel embarrased about wearing it - it's so so so super cute!

  37. so so so cute! Such a great mix of soft and hard. The belt is great! Loving this eclectic look.
