Dress: H&M. Boots: Topshop. Bag: Thrift & DIY studded. Jewellery: T&V & street vendors
Another post wearing two of my favourite things: ankle boots and ditzy tea dresses.
I got the dress a good three years ago. The boots were acquired after visiting Topshop recently. They were sold out in my size (of course they were) so I immediately checked online (while still standing in the shop) and hit ‘add to shopping cart’ when I saw my size was still there. The sight of them in real life was the clincher:Patent leather sole and heel plus suede leather. I wore them with black ankle socks. (I LOVE wearing little ankle socks with open toe sandals too).
That evening the boyfriend and I had dinner at Cipriani downtown on West Broadway where I locked eyes for a second time (for all of an awkward two seconds) with actor Djimon Hounsou sitting with a male companion. First time I saw him was back stage (I got lucky) at New York fashion week in February (there’s me doing that ‘casual’ glance or two like I didn’t see him but clearly he probably knew I was looking). Anyway where the heck am I going with this? If I see him a third time I’m definitely saying something.
NEWS ALERT!!: AKIRA in Chicago apparently got in more of the Sam Edelmans boots!!! Call now!! Ask for RJ. Tel number below under my ‘no more waiting post’

    I have the same dress, but I don’t look like you in it, sadly, and I don’t have your fab legs – you look gorgeous…I love your blog by the way… but maybe I’ll take another look at that dress tomorrow…

    Anon 1 – one day I’ll take a shot of him. He’s already been warned ; )

    Anon 2 – as long as it fits you then wear it? Seriously. Just a pair of sandals even will work, or Fryes. Hope you take it out again.
