secret weapons

Dresses: American Apparel. Boots: Sam Edelman. Bullet boot harness & Cuff: Trash & Vaudeville. Shades: Ray Ban
I’ve been meaning to show this one shoulder American Apparel dress but kept forgetting.
I layered it over their transparent dress (a great layering piece). This way I’m wearing a dress with sleeves instead of bare arms.
The Sam Edelman boots are (still!) comfortable. I’ve worn them all day for work before and it’s been fine. I usually wear them plain without their harness, but I added this bullet boot harness that I got at Trash and Vaudeville. I’m sure I’ll find another shoe to add it to instead.

    I’ve been secretly coveting your wardrobe for as long as I can remember (clothing wise), and I’ve been tuning into your clothing posts, as with everyone. Ha ha. O_o

    But I just have one thing to say, and it’s something that I’ve noticed for a long time, considering I always go to one of your favorite stores, also a favorite of mine. The name is Trash Vaudeville, not “Vauderville.” =]
    Just thought you’d like to correct it for your future uses.

    You know what, this is how they should combine the dress on the advert of AA. I think it’s cheap to just put the see through dress on without anything underneath like they do now, I mean, who on earth’s gonna wear it like that?! This, on the other hand is great, and it’s seriously the first picture that I see of that dress that actually makes me want to buy it..
    Good job!

    Kenita – thanks. I’m such an idiot. I’ve been writing it the way I say it. Corrrected.

    Jacqueline – let me know if it works out.

    Def try the layering thing. Helps when you don’t want bare arms out….

    Daria – I expect pics when you do it.

    Kristiane – if you click on the link I created for this post it will take you to the dress where you can check if its online.

    You look seriously fine.

  24. Miss Jeanett says:

    How tall are you? I thinking of buying the dress, but I’m affraid that it’ll be to short on me since I’m 178 cm tall.

    Thanks!
