you suddenly complete me

August 27, 2009

I've had this 50's dress for a while, but recently hemmed it a little shorter and took in the waist line (originally worn here when my hair was super short!) - definitely going to get more wear out of this dress.

Among the many things I need to buy for fall, my biggest concern is buying a new waist belt. I have a strong feeling my over-wearing this belt made it looks 50 years older than it really is. The Dries Van Notens were snagged off eBay some time last month for some ridiculously cheap price.

Anyways, school is starting next week, meaning I only have this weekend to completely revamp my closet. Frantically on the lookout for drapey, shimmery pieces, thigh-high boots, pleats that last for days, equestrian pants, shaggy vests, less basic more unconventional tops, and CFM pumps.

P.S. For those who have been asking, I'm using a XSI Canon Rebel with a fancy lens courtesy of my darling boyfriend.

P.S.S. You can win your own 2 Bandits boot bands as seen in the post below by telling Ruby Press what your favorite style is and why!

    the dress is adorable!!

    question: you seem like an expert ebay-er, do you think you could maybe do a post where you give tips on how you find such good deals on designer items on ebay? i never seem to have the same luck as other people haha.

  9. That first picture is incredible! Props to the photographer! This is a simple all white ensemble done by so many people! What makes your looks different and special from the rest are tiny little details. The belt normal sized brown leather belt goes perfect with this look. Some might have worn a over sized belt and other a tiny one. The ruffles of the dress are give it that chic look. Your shoes are to die for! Over all...amazing! By the way...have I mentioned how beautiful you are? Your beautiful and chic...two good things!
